Don't wing it: update your surgical & anaesthetic considerations in chickens

Summary

Increasingly vets are being presented with backyard chickens and their owners are requesting treatment for animals that are on the edge of production vs pet animals. This practical session will cover clinically relevant anatomy of the chicken, with an emphasis on assessing the anatomy during physical examination, vs post mortem, understanding the structure and function of the crop, and how to obtain intravenous access.


Key learning objectives:

1. Delegates will learn how physical anatomy relates to pathological changes

2. Delegates will learn how to place crop tubes and how to perform ingluviotomies

3. Delegates will learn how to achieve intravenous access in chicken patients
