Avian care discussed at AVMA

When dealing with avian or other exotic patients, it can be difficult to obtain access to information on the best ways to diagnose and treat them. At the American Veterinary Medical Association’s convention this year in Atlanta, Ga., one presenter discussed some of the things he considered important to remember when treating birds in his session: “Avian Medicine: Standard of Care.” “For the most part people that have dogs and cats generally expect that all veterinarians can treat dogs and cats. For exotics the expectation is that all vets can’t treat these animals,” said Thomas Tully Jr., DVM, DABVP (Avian), professor of avian medicine in the department of veterinary clinical sciences at Louisiana State University’s School of Veterinary Medicine. Tully said his department at LSU receives between 20 and 30 inquiries a week from veterinarians who treat birds. He believes that there need to be some guidelines so that avian patients can get the best care possible.

The year in veterinary news

It’s hard to believe the first decade of the 21st century is drawing to a close. A lot happened in the world of veterinary news, from mergers to drug shortages to animal welfare and other legislation. "To me the biggest news story of the year was the development of persistent supply shortages of critical veterinary medications -- especially propofol," said Eric Barchas, DVM, newshound and author of dogster.com’s The Vet Blog. "Mergers, corporate shenanigans, and quality control issues combined in a persistent fashion to make practicing medicine much harder and more complicated than it should be." This week, NEWStat takes a look back at some of the top stories of 2010. NEWStat will return in the New Year with a new installment of your favorite weekly newsletter on Jan. 5, 2011.
