Pet bird owners commonly experience emergencies with their birds. Some cases need to be seen by an avian veterinarian immediately, however, in many emergencies first aid can be given by the owner to stabilize the bird until veterinary care can be administered.
Avian First Aid is a comprehensive presentation designed to teach owners how to properly handle a pet bird emergency. It is written and presented by Dr. Greg Burkett a Board Certified Avian Veterinarian with 17 years experience in avian medicine.
