“Bird Diseases I have loved – challenges of an avian vet”

The March General Meeting will be held on March 6, 2020 at the School of Arts Hall, Cnr of Thynne and Wynnum Roads, Morningside. Doors will open at 6:30pm for a 7:30pm start. The QFS and Australian Wildlife Supplies product sales tables will operate from 6:30pm – 7:30pm.

Our main speaker is Dr Bob Doneley a leading avian vet who has a wealth
of experience relevant to your bird collection. Bob graduated from the
University of Queensland in 1982, and worked in veterinary practices in
Bundaberg, Brisbane, Toowoomba and the UK, but is now head of veterinary
medicine at University of Queensland, Gatton. Bob developed his interest
in bird medicine shortly after graduation when he realised he had been
taught very little about birds. He was eventually registered as
Queensland’s first specialist in bird medicine and was awarded his
Fellowship (FACVSc) in 2003. He now lectures to numerous veterinary
students on bird and exotic animal medicine and has published two
textbooks on bird medicine. Bob’s presentation will focus on how to take
a holistic approach to maintaining the health of your collection and
will draw on his long experience in avian medicine. It will be highly
informative. The meeting commences with a short talk on Diamond
Firetails from local breeder, Mick Hampson. Come along!
