Poultry Examination protocol
Chickens, turkeys, guinea fowl, ducks and geese all come under the poultry category.
A thorough clinical examination is essential, and together with information of diet, husbandry and progression of the clinical signs will help in arriving at a diagnosis. Sometimes further diagnostic tests are required.
- Collect history
- Record relevant biometric data
- Clinical examination
- Discuss treatment/diagnostic plan then either:
- Collect samples
- Diagnostic tests
- Hospitalisation for critical care or
- Home on treatment
We are actively involved in educating vets on poultry medicine by lecturing at continuing education events, writing chapters in poultry medicine textbooks and by providing webinars.
