Very helpful. I can read results for humans, since most of the reference ranges are in my textbooks, but not for birds.
These are really, really amazing. I am just so surprised (and yet why would I be?) at how similar these are to humans. Sure, the values are different, but so much is the same too. Considering the wide difference in physiology I have to say that reading the information made me feel a lot better. I feel that if I ever had to understand Bella's blood results I would feel comfortable, because it is is so similar to what I learn about every day!
The more in depth .pdf was actually a lot less dense than I thought it would be, and summarized things in a concise, easy-to-follow way. Maybe I'm just comprehending it better because I adore birds, but I think some of my textbook authors could learn a thing or two...
