    There is also this book:
    Avian Medicine: Principles and Applications

    This highly regarded was developed to provide a definitive reference text that blends the science of health with the art of clinical medicine.
    By applying the information presented in the book, the competent avian practitioner will be able to effectively provide the highest quality care for his patients and guide the companion bird client or aviculturist in implementing and effective preventative health programme.
