Interest in soft tissue surgery in avian and exotic animals has increased over the last decade due to widespread use of isoflurane anesthesia, the introduction of microsurgical techniques and improvement of microsurgical and bipolar radio-surgical instrumentation. This course has been designed for veterinarians in practice, working with avian cases, wishing to gain a higher level of expertise in their approach to avian respiratory disease, psittacine neonatology and post mortem techniques. The course also includes an insight into PPDS as well as discussions of raptor tendon injuries and their repair.
