Avian Medicine TimeOnline

Avian Medicine TimeOnline

Avian consults can be difficult and often present as an emergency because owners do not understand normal bird behaviour nor recognise key symptoms that might indicate an important underlying problem.

Avian cases may often seem complex at first glance. This course aims to give you the knowledge and skills to approach them with confidence and give your patients the maximum chance of a successful outcome. This course will review and update your knowledge of anatomy, physiology, husbandry, handling and examination techniques, diagnostics, emergency procedures and radiography. We will complement this with modules that cover how to best diagnose and manage specific common problems and syndromes we see in our avian patients.
