About the course

Birds can be challenging patients to nurses in the veterinary practice setting. By understanding the biology and behaviour of birds, and how they differ to our mammal patients, we can have far greater success in nursing and treating them. This one day course will build your knowledge and confidence in caring for birds and will cover:

  • Bird husbandry, handling and hospitalisation
  • Anatomy and common clinical conditions
  • Clinical techniques and parameters (feeding, venous access, fluid therapy, pharmacology)
  • Safe and successful anaesthesia techniques, tips & tricks
