Image Gallery: Avian Restraint
Avian patients come in many shapes, sizes, and species. Veterinary team members can safely handle and restrain these patients by following basic guidelines that reduce patient stress and help protect the patient, restrainer, and veterinarian. Many veterinarians may be accustomed to restraining avian patients while simultaneously performing the examination; however, a thorough external physical examination is best achieved when a team member restrains the patient.1,2
