Backyard Poultry Medicine and Surgery
Client interest and commitment to Back Yard Poultry, has mushroomed dramatically in the past 6-8 years. Not only has this created a requirement for clinicians to advance their avian medicine and surgery, an area traditionally not taught at undergraduate level, but also all the complexities of dispensing medication to food producing species, maintaining records etc.. This webinar series has been designed for veterinarians in practice, who are working with backyard poultry.
The webinar series includes discussions of common backyard poultry diseases, including aetiology, diagnosis and realistic treatment options as well as traditional poultry medicine and flock health. This webinar series will take attendees a stage further, to include anaesthesia, diagnostics, common surgical challenges (crop impaction, salpingohysterectomy, fracture repairs).
Chickens are no longer ‘an agricultural commodity’’, but often a much loved family member, with many clients willing to pursue extensive diagnostic and treatment modalities.
