On February 1st, our very own Dr. Fowler held a Continuing Education class for our clinic staff about Exotic Species Emergencies. It was a very informative and well-attended session, focusing on common emergencies seen with pet bird species and the best ways to respond and provide treatment. He also reviewed some basic information about medical care for birds, and even gave a demonstration of how to bandage a wing for common types of fractures/injuries. Tori volunteered her ‘wing’ for demonstration purposes!
Dr. Fowler completed a year long post-graduate internship for exotics medicine with BluePearl, and is passionate about exotic species medicine and surgery!
