M. Scott Echols, DVM, Dipl ABVP (Avian Practice) will present "Stress Reducing Handling Techniques for Parrots." Dr. Echols will also be presenting this topic to the members of the Utah Veterinary Medical Association. We are fortunate to be able to get new and up-to-the-minute information from our avian veterinary advisers. The presentation will cover handling, restraint, and grooming procedures, in a specialized fashion to reduce stress to our birds. Dr. Echols practices with Dr. Doug Folland at Parrish Creek Veterinary Clinic in Centerville, UT. We welcome everyone to this important meeting.
