Pathology of Pet and Aviary Birds, 3rd Edition

A complete reference for veterinary pathologists, residents, and students interested in avian diseases

The revised third edition of Pathology of Pet and Aviary Birds delivers a comprehensive reference to gross and microscopic lesions found in birds, as well as the implications of these diseases. This third edition includes improved coverage of normal anatomy and of advanced diagnostic techniques, including special stains, immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, and molecular diagnostics.

The authors offer an extensive collection of more than 1200 high-quality, full-color images. New chapters cover the postmortem examination; gross and microscopic anatomy; advanced diagnostics; and cytology. Specific chapters address diseases of passerines, Columbidae, and raptors, and other chapters are intuitively organized by body system. The book also provides:

  • A thorough introduction to the preparation and interpretation of cytological samples
  • Comprehensive tables of infectious diseases and published avian primers and IHC markers
  • Practical discussion of diseases of the liver, urinary system, reproductive system, respiratory system, cardiovascular system, nervous system, alimentary system, integument, special senses, and more.
  • High-quality and annotated macroscopic and microscopic images that bolster the text and benefit the reader

This book is an essential resource for veterinary pathologists and pathology residents, and will also benefit avian practitioners and veterinary students with an interest in diseases of pet birds and birds in avicultural collections. As many diseases in captive birds also manifest in wild birds, the book will appeal to those interested in the diseases and pathology of wild birds.
