Dr. Graham, the editor, has put together an excellent resource for both novice and advanced clinicians that will be used daily for review of differential diagnoses and useful diagnostic tests or treatments for a specific condition. This book can be used as an aid to prevent things from being overlooked and will be particularly valuable to practitioners who examine and treat avian patients as part of a mixed-species caseload. (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Dec 15th 2016)


"This is an important addition to the already fantastic variety of avian medicine books. It sets itself apart by following the format of the other Five-Minute Veterinary Consult books and provides readers with helpful reviews and reminders for proper case management, all in a short amount of time." (Doody Enterprises, 2016)
