The 1 hour presentation is RACE approved for veterinary continuing education. Details on how to obtain the course credit can be found along with the presentation at:
The World Parrot Trust is publishing a series of educational podcasts that cover numerous subjects related to parrots. Dr Echols will be featured on several podcasts and will cover bird medical topics. Some of the podcasts will be free and others will require WPT membership.
To listen to the podcast, simply select the topic icon and you will be taken to the WPT audio page. If you have specific questions or comments about the podcasts, select ‘Discussion’ below the topic icon to start, join in or simply read the dialogue.
Dr Echols and the World Parrot Trust hope these podcasts will address questions and stimulate conversation about select topics. The field of avian medicine is rapidly changing. As a result, information contained within the podcasts may become dated. That is where the ‘Discussion’ comes in handy to address new information. We look forward to your feedback!
