Birds can be challenging patients to nurses in the veterinary practice setting. By understanding the biology and behaviour of birds, and how they differ to our mammal patients, we can have far greater success in treating them.

This one day course will build your knowledge and confidence in caring for birds and will cover:

  • Anatomy and physiology of avian species
  • Common bird patients (raptors, poultry, waterfowl, psittacines, cage birds)
  • Common clinical conditions
  • Husbandry, handling and hospitalisation
  • Anaesthesia and clinical techniques
  • Treatment and rehabilitation of wild birds
