Gratiskurs for SVFs medlemmer - BASIC PRINCIPLES AND APPLICATION OF AVIAN MEDICINE - “Don´t fear the Exotic!”

18. april 2020
Fellesauditoriet NMBU/Mattilsynet, Adamstuen, Oslo
A seminar for veterinary practioners and technicians

I seldom see a bird in my practice! Why?! - Bird patients are always dying that fast! Is there really a way to cure them? – Buying a new bird costs nothing! Is there really some money to treat it? – Bird patients presented to me never show disease symptoms! How to get a clue on a diagnosis?

Answers on these questions and more will be given in this interactive seminar, which is addressed to the general veterinary practitioner as well as to technicians. The seminar will provide the participants with a practically orientated review on common principles and applications for daily routine practice.
