Australia Bird Vet Specialist Dr Ross Perry brings you a video clip of a necropsy, or gross post-mortem examination of a rescued escaped pet rainbow lorikeet found with clipped wings. The lorikeet had been placed in an aviary with other rescued wild rainbow lorikeets. 3 birds died within a few days but were not presented promptly for necropsy while their carcasses were still fresh. This lorikeet's pectoral muscles were moderately wasted indicating it had been sick and /or had been starving for perhaps 3 to 5 days. It might well have benefited and still be alive it he had closer monitoring by someone with better awareness of signs of disease and given a prompt veterinary health check while he was still alive!. Bleeding from the stomach was a key post-mortem finding. Lots of Pasteurella-like bacteria (often associated with mice in aviaries) were seen in some stained smears but were not necessarily the cause of death as the carcass was not fresh when necropsied.
