Nursing the Bird Patient
Royal Veterinary College, Boltons Park Farm, Hawkshead Road
A wide variety of birds are frequently seen in clinical practice. Your patients can range from a timid little budgie all the way to an angry parrot with a razor sharp beak. Despite the varied background the initial treatment and supportive care of birds can be applied across many species. This day will cover the basic husbandry of commonly seen species and consider triage, as well as emergency treatment and supportive care of ill birds.
