How to Approach Avian Emergencies
This webinar aims to provide veterinarians with the information to triage, manage and treat parrots that present as emergencies. Parrots commonly present as emergencies due to their preservation reflex, which, like many prey species, means they hide signs of illness until they are critically unwell. These parrots often present with dyspnea, severe lethargy, dehydration and anorexia and it can be confronting for owners to realise just how unwell their pets are. Managing the expectations of these owners and their critically ill pets is what this webinar will aim to cover.
