Drawing blood – Liver Disease webinar Dr. Lamb


Are birds sedated to draw blood?


Answer:

Hi Janice,

Here is Dr. Lamb’s response:

Depends on the veterinarian. Some like to have a patient sedated, others do not. I often do not sedate for blood work but occasionally will based on the stress level for the patient.
