WitmerLab at Ohio University

Internet source: http://www.ohio.edu/people/witmerl/lab.htm https://www.facebook.com/witmerlab/

Language: English

Research Statement WitmerLab at Ohio University explores the functional morphology of vertebrates. A major focus has been the soft tissues of the heads of dinosaurs, and so, vertebrate paleontology is an important activity. But, since fossils tend to preserve only bones and teeth, we also study modern-day animals. As a result, our projects are diverse, ranging from studies of the nasal apparatus of Diplodocus to the brain and ear of T. rex to the horns of rhinos to the airflow in alligator heads, and so on. We use traditional techniques, as well as the latest in high-tech imaging and 3D visualization. Anatomy is our stock-in-trade, because anatomical details record the evolution of adaptation. Their study provides a better understanding of the vertebrate head: how it works—from physiology to biomechanics—and how it evolves.

Cranial kinesis in a Hyacinth macaw, the largest flying parrot


Here's a quick demo of cranial kinesis in a hyacinth macaw, the largest flying parrot. WitmerLab grad student James Nassif dissected this specimen (OUVC 10883), and then we fed it to the dermestid beetles, who really liked it! Today it came out of the disinfecting hydrogen-peroxide/ammonia bath, and so I took the opportunity to film a quick video before it dried. This project was funded by our NSF grant to study the evolution of avian kinesis. Addendum...Since some may be seeing this video as their first exposure to WitmerLab, let me make clear that this macaw was not sacrificed for our research but rather was a natural casualty of a captive-bred bird that we were able to obtain for our studies. That's true for all the animals you'll see on our web sites.


African Grey Parrot dissection: kinesis & novel muscles


We might as well call this video series "Dissecting with Emily," because we're again featuring work by Ohio University Honors Tutorial College student Emily Caggiano. Lately Emily has been dissecting this African grey parrot (OUVC 10840), and today we wanted to share with you some of the crazy extreme cranial kinesis that parrots have, as well as the two specialized jaw muscles that parrots uniquely evolved. This dissection fits in as part of the NSF-funded collaborative research we have with Casey Holliday, Kevin Middleton, and Jul Davis. In fact, we even poked at the other side of this parrot's head last week when we assembled the grant team.


Dissection of the gizzard (ventriculus) of a Canada goose


Here's a quick iPhone video of the stomach region of a Canada goose. The dissection was done by Emily Caggiano, an Ohio University Honors Tutorial College student working in our lab. It's interesting because it shows how a large-bodied avian herbivore "chews" tough plant material without a set of teeth in its jaws. The vid is kinda gross so be warned. It shows the esophagus and proventriculus (glandular part of the ventriculus) leading into the huge muscular gizzard (the muscular part of the ventriculus) which then leads out the pyloric area to the duodenum. Check out the keratinous cuticular plates that help grind up the food, along with the grit and small stones (that we had washed out).

Wildlife Aid Foundation

Internet source: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2GYlKSMFgAPqVZoFyw5Itg

Language: English

All wild animals that come into our care at our Surrey based Wildlife Hospital are treated and rehabilitated completely free of charge. Our aim is to return every animal that is capable of surviving back to its natural environment. Unfortunately, there are still too many incidents when illness or injuries – often deliberately inflicted by man – are so severe that they would never be able to survive in the wild. At the Wildlife Aid Foundation, we do not believe that it is right to keep any wild animal in captivity and so, heart-breakingly, we allow any such animal the dignity of a peaceful and pain free death in a warm and comfortable environment. This is only ever a last resort and every day, our volunteers’ dedication and care allows us to see remarkable recoveries where others might have given up.

Why do we need the Wildlife Aid Foundation?

In Britain, we are fortunate to enjoy a huge diversity of native animals and birds but every year, millions of these animals are killed, injured or suffer some trauma, either as a result of direct contact with man, or the impact that we have on the environment. Our aim is to help redress the balance between man and nature and to play our part in preserving our heritage for future generations to enjoy. While there are many organisations and schemes dedicated to the vital work of preserving natural habitats, there are still very few who help preserve the species that live within them. Here at the Wildlife Aid Foundation, we are dedicated to the rescue, care and rehabilitation of sick, injured or orphaned wildlife.

Preserving the balance of nature

Through history, we have seen how the impact of losing one species can have devastating effects on the whole ecosystem and there may be even more long-term effects that, as yet, we still do not fully understand. Each and every animal plays its own part in preserving the balance of nature. At the Wildlife Aid Foundation, no British wild animal, from any species, is ever turned away if it needs our help.

Helping others to help Wildlife

As a centre of excellence dealing with all native species, we receive thousands of phone calls, letters and e-mails asking for advice and help, from vets, schools, members of the public and other charities and organisations. We are always available to offer what help and support we can. We provide work experience for students from across the country and liaise regularly with agricultural and training establishments on the content of the wildlife section of animal care courses. Whatever the problem, if it concerns British wildlife, we will find the answer.

Education is our future

At the Wildlife Aid Foundation, we believe passionately in the importance of education in helping to preserve our heritage. Through school talks, presentations, our website and many other means of communication, we play an active role in helping future generations understand and learn about threats to Britain’s wild animals, what we can all do to help, and environmental issues that affect us all.

Full wing surgery with avian specialist


Have you ever wanted to see what really goes on during specialist orthopedic surgery?

Today the spotlight moves away from Wildlife Aid, and we would like to give you an in-depth look at exactly what goes into fixing a buzzard's wing. Avian specialist Neil Forbes from Vets Now Referrals recently helped us fix a nasty break in the wing of a beautiful pale buzzard (Buteo buteo), and in this video you can see exactly how he did it - every step of the way.

Little owl freed from tennis netting


Entanglements are, sadly, a common site here at Wildlife Aid, but this one was an unusual case.

This little owl was brought into us by a member of the public after becoming tangled in a tennis net. They had managed to cut it free from the net, but it was still badly tangled.

It was rushed in to see volunteer vet Anthony who set to work freeing the bird from its bonds. Luckily, it was unharmed, and after a few days rest it was released back into the wild!

Pigeon impaled by illegal hook


Every life matters at Wildlife Aid and we treat the entire spectrum of British wildlife.

This poor pigeon was brought into us with a fishing hook embedded in its face. It had pierced right through the cheek tissue and was dangerously close to its eye. It was rushed into see volunteer vet Cristina who found the hook was barbed (illegal on this part of the UK) and she needed to do an operation to remove it.

After putting the pigeon under anaesthetic, Cristina cut the hook free, but it was a tense wait to see if the eye could be saved...

Mother duck and ducklings run over by car


Simon was called out to a mother duck and eight tiny ducklings, who’d been spotted on a busy road. The lady who rescued the bird family, with the help of two other people, took more than an hour to catch every single surviving duckling and recover them to safety. Sadly, the mum had a broken wing, so she had to be assessed by the vets. It was not looking good... the family had little chance of staying together. The mother duck's injury was too severe; she wouldn't be able to fly again, so the kindest thing to do in order to stop her suffering was to put her to sleep. The, now orphaned, ducklings will stay with us until they are old enough to be released. We are very successful at rearing ducklings to adulthood, so, even if they have lost their mother, they are in good hands!

His research interests include avian transfusion medicine, coagulation parameters, and infectious diseases of rabbits.


The avian respiratory system has several unique and fascinating adaptations for flight that are important to clinicians. This lecture provides an overview of the anatomical features of the avian respiratory tract and discusses the physiology of the respiratory system. Clinical signs of respiratory disease in birds and how we can use these signs to anatomically locate the origin of the problem to the upper respiratory tract, the major airways, the pulmonary parenchyma, and coelomic cavity are also discussed. The ability to locate the problem can better shape our diagnostic and therapeutic approach to our patients. Emergency management of birds in respiratory distress, with reference to these anatomic locations, is also discussed. The presentation concludes with a review of some important diseases, including diagnosis and treatment, that affect each region of the respiratory tract.

Lecture Objectives will include:


2.Normal anatomy/physiology

• Upper respiratory tract

• Trachea

• Lower respiratory tract

• Respiration

3.Clinical signs of respiratory disease

4.Emergency treatment of respiratory disease

5.Diseases of the respiratory tract

• Nares, nasal cavity

• Trachea

• Lungs and air sacs

• Coelomic disease

What Parrots Want: The Importance and Use of Foraging and Environmental Enrichment for Birds (Webinar)

Internet source: https://lafeber.com/vet/what-parrots-want-t...ment-for-birds/

Language: English

Date: April 4, 2017

By: Yvonne van Zeeland, DVM, MVR, PhD, DECZM

About the presenter:

Dr. Yvonne R.A. van Zeeland is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Zoological Medicine at Utrecht University, the Netherlands. Dr. van Zeeland earned her doctorate from Utrecht University in 2004. She completed an internship in companion animal medicine at Utrecht University, followed by a residency in avian medicine. In April 2013 Yvonne became a Diplomate of the European College of Zoological Medicine and a European recognized specialist in avian medicine. Throughout her career, Yvonne has shown a special interest in parrot behavior. She became a Tinley-certified parrot behavior consultant in 2012 and she also researched feather-damaging behavior in grey parrots.

Lecture objectives will include:

• Parrots in captivity versus parrots in the wild

• Species-typical behaviors of wild parrots

• Captive living environments

• Environmental enrichment

• Types of enrichment

• Effects of environmental enrichment on behavior, health, and welfare of captive parrots

• Research to identify the behavioral needs of psittacine birds.


Despite parrots being popular pets, much of the information regarding their nutritional and behavioral needs is still unknown. Unlike dogs and cats, most psittacine species are not domesticated and have therefore likely retained most, if not all, of their wild instincts and behavioral needs. In captivity, however, most parrots have little to no opportunity to perform these species-typical behaviors. This will not only reduce their welfare, but can also result in the onset of abnormal repetitive behaviors, including feather damaging behavior, and oral or locomotor stereotypies.

Provision of environmental enrichment serves an important tool to enable animals to perform their natural, species-typical behaviors and reduce the occurrence of health and/or behavioral problems. Several categories can be distinguished, including social, occupational, physical, sensory and nutritional or foraging enrichment. In recent years, several studies have been performed to study the effects of different types of enrichments on the parrots’ behavior and welfare, which revealed their potential to reduce abnormal repetitive behaviors and improve captive parrot welfare. Nevertheless, information regarding the parrots’ true behavioral needs is still largely unknown.

Various methods exist to study the importance of different types of enrichments for an animal, of which so-called choice tests are considered the most informative. Of these, preference tests, in which the animal is allowed to choose between two or more environments which differ in only one feature, are probably the best-known. While using such tests it was found that parrots are highly motivated to work to obtain their food (contrafreeloading), thereby indicating that provision of foraging opportunities is essential for the parrots’ well-being in captivity. Other studies have focused on the parrots’ preferences for specific enrichment features, thereby providing an empirical basis for the development and refinement of enrichments.

Aside from preference tests, so-called motivational tests may be performed. Such tests, also referred to as consumer demand studies, help to address the actual value and importance of a specific enrichment for an animal. In a pilot study regarding parrots’ motivation for various types of enrichment, it was found that parrots were highly motivated for social interaction with conspecifics and for space to fly and roam freely, whereas other enrichments were valued differently by the individual parrots. Results of the aforementioned studies help to formulate recommendations regarding the parrot’s living environment and further improve their welfare in captivity.

Minimizing Stress to Avian Patients During the Veterinary Visit

Internet source: https://lafeber.com/vet/minimize-stress/

Language: English

By: Alicia McLaughlin DVM

Why is it important to minimize stress associated with veterinary visits?

    Fear is damaging to patients.

    Fear is damaging to client-patient and client-veterinary relationships.

    Clients are beginning to change their expectations of the veterinary visit.

    Minimizing fear improves the quality of medicine provided.

Challenges that must be overcome include:

    Underlying concurrent disease

    Minimal prior training, poor socialization, and frightening past experiences

    Owner cooperation (success is significantly influenced by client buy-in)

Practical tips for clinical implementation

    Hospital design

    Staff training

    Client education

Working with patients in a clinical setting

    Training in the exam room or hospital

    Working with the untrained, frightened parrot (rethinking the use of force)

    When to reach for sedation

        Avian fatigue assessment score

        Sedation protocols

        Client communication

    Use of wellness plans to improve compliance

The future of avian medicine


The impact of stress on physiologic and psychologic health is increasingly well known.  Many veterinarians strive to reduce stress during hospital visits for both their patients and clients in an attempt to minimize the harmful effects of stress.  Minimizing stress is more challenging to accomplish in avian patients compared to domestic species due to a variety of factors, including: frequent poor socialization, insufficient prior training, neophobic tendencies, aversive past experiences, and lack of routine veterinary care.  The pet owner, veterinarian, and veterinary staff all play different roles in either exacerbating or relieving patient stress during the hospital visit.  Sensitivity to avian body language, a clear understanding of behavior science, skillful use of desensitization and counterconditioning techniques, use of the minimal amount of force or restraint necessary to accomplish procedures, and use of conscious sedation as a management technique sooner rather than later can significantly improve the patient experience.

This webinar will provide a brief overview of concepts important to the Avian Fear Free™ veterinary visit, along with a number of practical case studies. A set of Fear Free ™ modules focusing on avian patients is currently in production and will be available as a hospital resource by the end of next year.  Interested practitioners can visit https://fearfreepets.com for more information on the Fear Free™ veterinary educational programs.

About the presenter:

Alicia McLaughlin received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Oklahoma State University. She completed a veterinary internship in exotic animal medicine at the Center for Bird & Exotic Animal Medicine in Bothell, WA and is now an associate veterinarian at this practice. Dr. McLaughlin has been involved in veterinary research and leadership throughout her career, and has authored or co-authored articles in both professional journals and national conference proceedings. Dr. McLaughlin is passionate about providing low-stress veterinary visits for all of her patients.  She is a certified Fear Free™ veterinarian, and is spearheading the development of an avian-focused Fear Free™ course.
