Compared with the first edition, which was published 16 years ago, the second edition of Pathology of Pet and Aviary Birds has been substantially expanded to include information on chickens, pigeons, and a few wild birds. Perhaps the greatest improvement to this edition is the addition of many color figures including macrophotographs; photomicrographs of histologic, cytologic, and immunohistochemically stained specimens; and occasional electron micrographs of various pathological lesions. The book is organized into 13 chapters, each devoted to a specific body system or organ. Each chapter begins with information regarding the normal gross and histologic anatomy of the system or organ being discussed, followed by descriptions of congenital anomalies and infectious and non-infectious diseases that affect that system or organ... Overall...this is a good book that contains plenty of information supported by numerous figures. It will be a good reference for anyone interested in the pathology of pet and aviary birds.
