During anesthesia, the cockatoo was monitored via capnography and pulse oximetry and received crystalloid fluids (10 mL/kg per hour; lactated Ringer's solution) through a 24-gauge catheter placed into the left ulnar vein. The bird was positioned in right lateral recumbency, and C-arm fluoroscopy (OEC 9800 unit, General Electric, Waukesha, WI, USA) was done.
An additional dose of ticarcillin-clavulanate (200 mg/kg) was given intravenously in the left ulnar vein. A transcoelomic cardiac ultrasound examination also was performed and did not show any abnormalities or evidence of vegetative endocarditis, which could have been a potential source for bacterial emboli.
The bird was anesthetized with isoflurane delivered via facemask, and then euthanatized with pentobarbital (1 mL/kg) in the left ulnar vein.
