When presented with a bird or reptile, disease is often advanced and yet making a specific diagnosis can be extremely challenging. This webinar series discusses aspects of avian and reptile husbandry and management, as so many cases are linked to poor husbandry. It also covers history taking, visual and physical examination, clinical pathology testing and interpretation, anaesthesia, imaging and endoscopy, so that attendees will be able to accurately access husbandry, form a realistic differential diagnosis list to be able to anaesthetise the patient, collect clinical pathology samples, interpret results, take standard radiology views and interpret them, to undertake a range of endoscopic examinations, with a view to achieving a definitive and specific diagnosis, in a timely, safe and effective manner so as to optimise prognosis for a full recovery.
