Troubleshooting

It must be emphasized that it is far better to confirm a diognosis before initiating treatment rather than to decide on a treatment based upon symptoms and probabilities.

This Symptoms & Diagnostic Troubleshooting Guide has been designed to help individuals unable to self-diagnose by using a microscope or those without access to an avian veterinarian.
