13) Although rosuvastatin pharmacokinetic data was not available for any bird species, it was hypothesized that a psittacine
dose may be similar or higher than that determined for rodents.
In addition, frozen samples of the brain and proventriculus of 6 psittacine
birds from Switzerland (n = 4) and Hungary (n = 2), also with clinical, pathoanatomical, and pathohistologic diagnosis of PDD, were used for investigation by RT-PCR only.
To our knowledge, this is the first description of a mesothelioma in a psittacine
Incidence of respiratory tract chlamydial infections and importation of psittacine
Pericardial effusion in psittacine
birds is most commonly noninfectious and clear.
However, little is known about bacteria residing on the skin of nondomesticated species, such as psittacine
birds, in a nondiseased state.
Fecal Gram's stains are commonly performed as a method of evaluating the gastrointestinal health of psittacine
Key words: Cryptosporidium, proventriculus, pathology, parasitology, psittacine
Two reports describe the incidence of candidiasis, including disease associated with the respiratory system, in psittacine
Infectious disease testing recommendations are based on the individual patient but, in general, include Chlamydophila psittaci testing, as well as potential viral testing for psittacine
beak and feather disease virus (circovirus).
Tap water and commercial, pelleted psittacine
diet (Kaytee Exact, Kaytee Products, Chilton, WI, USA) were available ad libitum.
The purpose of this preliminary study was to assess the applicability of TEG in psittacine
