This Essentials of Avian Medicine and Surgery is the third edition of the work originally published as Avian Medicine and Surgery more than twenty years ago. Since that time the subject has expanded beyond what was then envisaged. Many large, superbly illustrated multi-author volumes on the subject have been published. However it was felt that there was still a need for a small book that would enable the busy practitioner to have a quick reference or for the student just starting out to get a basic understanding of the subject.
The use of molecular biology in diagnostics and the variety of imaging techniques have advanced considerably, even since the second edition was produced. Because of the need for up-to-date information on this aspect, Professor Maria Krautwald-Junghanns kindly agreed to update the chapters on Aids to Diagnosis and Post-Mortem Examination.
Therapeutics is an important part of clinical practice, and so one of the forerunners in this ﬁeld, Professor Tom Tully, generously agreed to look at and update the ‘Avian Formulary’. A third expert in her ﬁeld, Dr Susan Orosz, very kindly agreed to write a chapter on The Special Senses of Birds. The original author requested this because it was felt that although the veterinarian has always considered animal welfare to be of primary importance, there is now an increasing interest on the part of the general public and an increase in well-intentioned but sometimes ill-informed focus groups looking into this matter. It is therefore imperative that the veterinarian should have the most up-to-date objective, scientiﬁc and unemotional information on the subject when advising their clients and the decision makers.
