Module 6-Exotic Avian Diseases

Available for RACE Approved CE credit if watched from 10:30am-11:20am CST on Thursday, May 12, 2022.

The first part of this module addresses two very important diseases of birds – avian influenza and Newcastle disease – and their potential economic impact on the U.S. economy. Clinical signs associated with these diseases and specific biosecurity measures to implement are included. In the second part of this module, veterinarians progress through an interactive scenario where one of these diseases is potentially introduced into the U.S. through the pet bird industry. Veterinarians will learn the process of reporting a possible exotic avian disease and the chain of events that occur in a foreign animal disease investigation.
