In recent years there has been an explosion in our knowledge of avian disease, and avian medicine has become one of the fastest developing areas in all of veterinary medicine.

In this Self-Assessment Colour Review, the editors and a group of internationally renowned avian contributors - some in clinical practice, some working in universities - offer practitioners and students an overview of avian medicine and surgery in an easily assimilable form: over 200 cases are presented as integrated questions and colour illustrations followed immediately by detailed explanations designed to educate, not just to test. Covering psittacines, pigeons, game birds, ratites, raptors and waterfowl, the cases appear in random order, just as they would in practice, and cover all the more common avian problems facing veterinarians. The book will be useful as a revision aid in preparation for exams and as a reference in continuing professional development. It will also be a source of much enjoyment to its readers.
