Results of five years of investigations into diseases of birds of prey, including owls

, : Results of five years of investigations into diseases of birds of prey, including owls. Praktische Tierarzt 59(9): 666-670

Of 230 specimens (generally dead wild birds or faeces) from 26 species of Falconiformes and owls, 88 (38%) contained parasites. Coccidia (Isospora) and hairworms were the commonest, being found mainly in faeces. Traumatic injuries found in 26 of 89 birds were attributed to traffic accidents. Hepatitis and nephritis were observed, confirmed in one case to be due to a herpesvirus and in another to a reovirus.
