Necropsy of Finches & Waxbills - An Overview

Necropsy can be a formidible diagnostic tool in the aviary

If we are ever unsure why a bird in our aviary died and NEED to know, it is sometimes beneficial to perform a necropsy to examine the organs and tissues, take blood samples and cultures, and view our findings under the microscope. 


The procedures and techniques explained within these articles are how WE perform a necropsy. We're quite certain there are many ways to go about it, but our method works well for our needs.
