    Can this be made into a Sticky Page? This would be a great reference resource for those that need help. They can review the chapters and info to discuss with their vets when seeking help.

    Thanks...I have the Harcover book, I got in the early 90's when I first started breeding. What was funny is the first vet I went to me showed me the book and told me to get it :) My copy looks like it went thru a war, but it has helped and saved so many birds with the books contents. And when I wasn't sure I could look up info, and talk to the vet on some proable causes for health issues going by what I have read. Just about all avian vets have this book so you can always mention Chapter and pages when consulting with a vet.

    I am sorry about this stupid question....why do the chapter listing on the web page link back to Harrison's Pet Products? Did something change since it was first posted? I am confused. I expected to see information re: what's in the chapters.

    They appear to have removed the direct links to it. It is available as a torrent download if you use a torrent program: Avian Medicine: Principles and Application (download torrent) - TPB
