Day 1 – Avian anaesthesia – lose your fear and keep ‘em alive
with Dr. Bob Doneley
In this webinar we will discuss the morbidity and mortality of anaesthesia in birds, particularly focusing on when mortality is most likely to occur and what the principle causes of anaesthesia are. Armed with this information, we will then discuss how to prepare a bird for anaesthesia, and how to support and monitor the patient from induction to recovery.
