This session begins with a review of avian gastrointestinal anatomy and physiology. The intestinal microbiota of birds is examined focusing on important interactions that support avian immune system function and homeostasis. Original scientific research in birds is presented, documenting the effects of probiotic therapy in such diverse conditions as atoxoplasmosis, megabacteriosis, proventricular dilatation disease, and IgA stimulation in hand-reared nestlings. The session concludes with a review and analysis of products available to the avian practitioner.
