Product Description


"There aren′t many veterinary textbooks you could happily take on holiday with you to read, but Birds of Prey – Health and Disease is just such a book.

The book should be purchased by every practice seeing raptors. It should be in the library of everyone involved in wild bird rehabilitation, veterinary and non–veterinary."

Veterinary Times, 2003

From the Back Cover

Raptor biology has evolved enormously since the publication of the original edition of this book under the title Veterinary Aspects of Captive Birds of Prey. With the help of leading international experts, John E. Cooper has updated and expanded this classic reference to include all the latest data on the health and diseases of raptors. While still serving the needs of veterinary surgeons who treat birds of prey, Birds of Prey: Health & Disease will also appeal to a wide readership of falconers, avian researchers, breeders, rehabilitators and zoo staff.

Important changes to this new edition are the inclusion of data on free–living birds, additional chapters on fractures, neonatology, pathology, legislation and poisons, and new sections on health monitoring, captive–breeding and host–parasite relations.

This book reviews all aspects of birds of prey, giving invaluable up–to–date information on diseases and pathology, but also looking at the history of the subject, the origins of terms, the evolution of current thinking and ending with a reliable list of primary references for further reading.
