The second edition of Avian Medicine, continues as a practical, comprehensive full-colour illustrative guide to the diagnosis and management of avian disorders.

A wide range of avian species are discussed in detail, including psittacines, raptors, bustards and many more. Completely revised, the second edition contains extended and new chapter sections - with a wealth of new illustrations! - including cytology and behavioural osteodystrophy, fluoroscopy and advanced imaging techniques. With numerous practical guidelines on the medical management of the patient or flock and many useful tips on clinical laboratory diagnosis and suggested treatments, Avian Medicine contains valuable practical advice on all aspects of veterinary care of avian species.
