This completely revamped second edition of Avian Medicine and Surgery includes over 260 all-new colour illustrated cases, with questions and answers fully exploring a breadth of diseases and disorders. Avian patients are a routine part of the veterinary case load and are being seen by many clinicians across the world. This book provides a unique quick reference for clinicians and a useful self-test for students by offering comprehensive, clinically-oriented information that can be quickly accessed, easily understood and applied.
With contributions from leading international authorities with diverse fields of expertise, the book covers a wide range of disciplines, organ systems and species. The cases are presented in a random order, just as they would appear in daily practice, challenging the reader to address real clinical situation and offering, where possible, a comprehensive solution.
'It is useful for both novice and experienced avian practitioners and encourages readers to think critically, which strengthens the learning process…This is a great resource for any veterinarian who examines and treats birds. It is a fun and easy read and provides information in a distinctive format that mimics real-life veterinary practice.'
