LafeberVet’s list of avian medicine links will assist your navigation of some of the avian medicine resources on LafeberVet. Educate yourself before laying hands on the avian patient by reviewing the basics of avian anatomy and physiology as well as important principles of handling and restraint. Then explore content on the examination and history, behavior, housing and nutrition, as well as supportive care techniques, diagnostics, basic therapeutics, and common presenting problems. Start with content listed in the rows titled, “Begin with…“, then expand your knowledge with other sections, such as “Learn more...”.
Depending on the problem encountered, referral may be in your avian patient’s best interest. Visit LafeberVet’s Referring Non-Traditional Species for additional information.
