The aim of this new manual BSAVA Manual of Backyard Medicine and Surgery is to provide good quality information to help veterinarians provide the level of care to backyard birds that clients expect and deserve. There has been a resurgence in the number of people keeping backyard poultry and they will often be seen as much loved pets. When a backyard bird becomes ill, therefore, their owner expects access to caring and competent veterinary care, often with an expectation that such care should meet the standard on offer to their dog or cat. The manual covers chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, guinea fowl, ornamental pheasants and peafowl. 373 p.
