Egg-related coelomitis and other reproductive conditions of backyard chickens - Dr Glynn Lam 1 CPD Points


The UPAV Annual Meeting will be held prior to commencing the webinar. Backyard chickens are increasingly popular in suburbia, existing somewhere between a family pet and a livestock animal. Bred to output a high number of eggs, it is common to see problems occurring in the complex process of egg formulation. This leads to many reproductive conditions, and may be the reason that a backyard chicken is taken to see a general practitioner. An extremely common condition in our practice is egg-related coelomitis (also called egg yolk peritonitis), a syndrome seen as the end result when things go wrong in the egg production process.

Dr Glynnis Lam
Dr Glynn graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2009 – “you know, that bird crazy one.” Their main interest has always been in avian medicine and surgery, but gradually extended to all unusual pets. After working in small animal clinics with a focus on exotics, in 2016 Dr Glynn met up with classmate Dr Jaclyn Gatt and together they started the Bird and Exotic Animal Clinic, the first avian and exotics only practice in Melbourne. Glynn’s favourite aspect of avian and exotic medicine is in inventing, pioneering, and thinking outside the square to find options and opportunities for better healing these unique patients. Dr Glynn will be sitting the (now delayed) 2020 exams for membership to the Australia and New Zealand College of Veterinary Science in the chapter of Avian Medicine and Surgery, and is very excited to be presenting this webinar for our colleagues in a world with increasing numbers of household and backyard birds.
