Táto praktická, nádherne ilustrovaná kniha je výstižnou publikáciou pre špecializovaných veterinárov, ale aj študentov veterinárstva, ktorí sa zaujímajú o aviárnu medicínu a chirurgiu v praxi sa venuje nielen anatómii a fyziológii, lekárskej prehliadke a radám, ako interpretovať diagnostické testy. Poruchy postihujúce rôzne telesné časti a systémy tvoria väčšiu časť knihy idúc od vonkajších (koža a perie, oči, nohy a beháky) k vnútorným vrátane tráviaceho a kardiovaskulárneho systému. Ďalšie aspekty lekárstva vtákov rozoberané v knihe zahrňujú behaviorálne problémy, chirurgiu a liekopis. Najnovšie vydanie z pohľadu 30- ročnej klinickej praxe v lekárstve vtákov obohatil autor o kapitoly pediatrie a predovšetkým obsiahle časti o chirurgii a najnovších klíinických technikách.
