This presentation will discuss how to determine hydration, anatomic sites utilized for different forms of hydration therapy, different fluid agents commonly used, and how to determine fluid replacement volumes. Nutritional supplementation for the avian patient including, products used, commercially available supplements, and how much to feed critically ill birds are important learning issues.
