Avian Medicine and Surgery in Practice is an invaluable quick reference resource for clinicians and a useful study guide for veterinary students. In this practical and beautifully illustrated book, early chapters cover physical examination, advice on interpreting diagnostic tests, and avian anatomy and physiology. Disorders affecting the different body regions and systems make up the majority of the book from the external-skin, feathers, eyes, legs and feet-to the internal including the gastrointestinal tract and the cardiovascular system. Further aspects of avian medicine discussed in the book include behavioural problems, incubation of eggs, paediatrics and surgery. Written by an expert with more than 30 years of clinical experience in avian medicine, the new edition is thoroughly revised with updated diseases, new and expanded clinical techniques, and over 100 new color illustrations. It also adds four important new chapters: Husbandry, Grooming and Nutrition, Diagnostic Imaging, Endoscopy, and Oncology as well as new sections on cardiovascular anatomy and neuroanatomy.

"Over the past decade there have been numerous texts published on avian medicine and surgery, each with varying degrees of depth of information and ease of use. The second edition of Avian Medicine and Surgery in Practice: Companion and Aviary Birds is an excellent blend of both features; readers can quickly access relevant and practical information, with additional references listed at the end of each chapter which direct the reader to more detailed information on the subject matters. The second edition comes only 6 years after the initial edition; however, given the continuously rapid expansion of information in avian medicine, its release is timely. The author's extensive experience in clinical avian medicine of companion birds is evident as one reads through the various chapters... Veterinary students will find the text to be a useful addition to complement their learning." - Douglas Whiteside, DVM, DVSc, DACZM, DECZM (ZHM), Senior Staff Veterinarian, Calgary Zoo, Alberta, The Canadian Veterinary Journal, Volume 58, 7 "The table of contents reveals an extensive and complete listing of most topics... This reasonably priced book will be an excellent addition to any avian practitioner's library and will be useful for veterinary students as well" -James McKinley, DVM, DABVP Amwell Bird Hospital, Hillsborough, NJ, Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association "This is a handy review of both the normal and the abnormal in companion and aviary birds... The format does not limit the clinician's options to those reported in a particular species, but instead invites the practitioner to think critically about a wider array of etiologies and management options. The second edition is indeed justified, with new chapters on husbandry, diagnostic imaging, and endoscopy, as well as a significant amount of new information in many of the other chapters." -Nichole Rosenhagen, BS, DVM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine), Doody Enterprises Praise for the previous edition: "Several avian books are available for practitioners working with pet birds and most claim to be comprehensive and easy to use. Unfortunately, many don't succeed in accomplishing both aims. This book does." -Julia Whittington, DVM, University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in Doody's Review Service "The author clearly draws on a wealth of experience and has written a book with much to recommend..." -Journal of Small Animal Practice "...chapters are extremely useful for any veterinarian, as they vividly describe the basics of avian medicine and how to apply them... many practical tips and scenarios... [images] are of high quality and are well labelled..." -Australian Veterinary Journal
