Examination protocol

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.
