Summer brings lots of opportunities to have fun with your puppy, but it also brings mosquitoes. As the mosquito population grows and dogs begin to spend more time outdoors, mosquito bites are more likely to occur and can be fatal for health. If you live in a hot climate and a mosquito season that runs all year round, the risks can be even greater.
Managing pet birds in a clinical setting can be difficult. The ability to "mask" the clinical signs of the disease up to the stage of the disease often results in birds being exposed when the owners realize that they are much sicker. Because of this, there are also high-risk patients diagnosed with birds. Birds commonly possess much higher metabolism relative to mammals and may lack oxygen during tolerance, treatment, or diagnostic sampling. Owners must be aware before dealing with and sampling through physical examination and diagnostic testing and the need for a step-by-step approach.
