Abstract

In the future, veterinarians will play an important role in the maintenance and propagation of predatory birds in captivity. This is partially attributed to the fact that the mortality rate of first year birds in the wild is very high. Falconers are increasingly demanding veterinary attention for their trained birds. Numerous zoological parks display birds-of-prey in exhibits that routinely need veterinary care. For these reasons, veterinary aspects of rehabilitating predatory species are extremely relevant in applied animal medicine today.
