In 2002, the third edition of the book entitled "Veterinary Aspects of Captive Birds of Prey" came out. In this edition, the author has paid much attention to the history of falconry. It appeared that already in 1486 there was discussion going on about an illness in goshawks.
Since the appearance of the first edition, knowledge about the medication and pathology of wild birds has increased a lot. Nevertheless, the new edition is far from complete. The overview is sometimes hard to be found, and the use of photographic imagery is sparse.
