Editorial


Ten years have gone by since an issue of Israel Journal of Veterinary
Medicine was last devoted to avian medicine. The present issue contains
papers on avian therapeutics, emergency medicine and abstracts from two
intern
ational conferences held in Israel. At these conferences only a few
Israeli veterinarians managed to attend, and the majority was from
overseas universities.

Since then avian medicine in Israel has made great advances and the

treatment of birds has become
an integral part of the activities of many
veterinary clinics. Recently the first conference on pet
-
bird medicine was
held at the School of Veterinary Medicine of the Hebrew University of
Jerusalem, with over one hundred participants, about half of whom we
re
veterinarians, and most of these were graduates of the Koret School of
Veterinary Medicine.

A number of diagnostic and treatment facilities are now available to avian
veterinarians in Israel: a referral clinic for the treatment of birds and exotic
anima
ls has been opened at the veterinary hospital at Beit Dagan; a
laboratory for the molecular diagnosis of avian diseases operates in
Rehovot; and an internet forum for avian medicine now has thirty five
registered members.

The present issue of the Journal a
ims at providing veterinarians with up
-
to
-
date information concerning tests that can be performed routinely at
most clinics, such as hematology, endoscopy, ultrasound and diagnosis of
viral diseases affecting Psittacines.

Among the authors of these article
s, graduates of Israel’s own school of
veterinary medicine stand out, as well as clinical veterinarians from
abroad who have agreed to share their experiences with us.
