Description

Pathology of Pet and Aviary Birds is an indispensable reference for avian practitioners and students of avian medicine, veterinary pathologists, and pathology trainees who will be engaged in diagnostic pathology or research on avian diseases.

In the last 30 years, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of pet and breeding birds in captivity and in ornamental and zoological collections. With that comes a corresponding growth in the number of veterinarians providing care for birds. Avian veterinarians and bird owners alike depend on the pathologist for accuracy and advice.

Diseases of pet and aviary birds differ significantly from those of poultry and from many of the common diseases seen in wild birds - even wild birds of the same species. Pathology of Pet and Aviary Birds:


  • offers a comprehensive review of the gross and histologic features of the diseases of pet and aviary bird,
  • provides a guide to ancillary diagnostics,
  • presents a context in which to interpret the pathologic findings, and
  • helps to create an understanding of the pathogenesis of the clinical manifestations of disease.

The material is organized by system so that the pathologist faced with a diagnostic challenge involving a particular organ can go to the appropriate chapter, rather than having to search through extraneous listings under etiology or by bird species.
