The County of San Diego's Office of the Veterinarian has developed a new procedure for collecting samples from wild birds to test for the presence of West Nile Virus. Called the rapid bilateral intraocular cocktail sampling method, it replaces the more expensive and time-consuming method of extracting internal organs. This new method involves a simple extraction of fluid from the eye of the bird, reducing a 15-20 minute procedure down to about 2 minutes.
