Herniation of the abdominal musculature has been reported in a variety of avian species including pigeons (Columba livia), (6) ducks (Anas acuta, Anas platyrhynchos), (7,8) turkeys, (9) cockatiels (Nymphicus hollandicus), (10) a red lory (Eos bornea), (11) budgerigars (Melopsittacus undulatus), (12) sulfur-crested cockatoos (Cacatua galerita), (12,13) and galahs (Eolophus
The 11 cases comprised 6 African grey parrots (Psittacus erithacus erithacus), 1 peach-faced lovebird (Agapornis roseicollis), 1 galah (Eolophus
roseicapilla), 1 Goffin's cockatoo (Tanimbar corella) (Cacatua goffiniana), 1 Moluccan cockatoo (Cacatua moluccensis), and 1 Senegal parrot (Poicephalus senegalus).
Avian genotype II was found in Major Mitchell's cockatoos (Cacatua leadbeateri), cockatiels, eclectus parrots (Eclectus roratus), a galah (Eolophus
roseicapilla), and a sun conure (Aratinga solstitialis), whereas avian genotype III was found in cockatiels, princess parrots (Polytelis alexandrae), a galah, and a sun conure.
The cockatoo group comprised the following species: blue-eyed cockatoo (Cacatua ophthalmica), Ducorps's cockatoo (Cacatua ducorpsii), galah (Eolophus
roseicapilla), little corella (Cacatua sanguined), Moluccan cockatoo (Cacatua moluccensis), pink cockatoo (Cacatua leadbeateri), sulphur-crested cockatoo (Cacatua galerita), Tanimbar cockatoo (Cacatua goffini), white cockatoo (Cacatua alba), and yellow-crested cockatoo (Cacatua sulphured).
Reports of avian species with osteosarcoma include budgerigars (.Melopsittacus undulatus), an umbrella cockatoo, a rose-breasted cockatoo (Eolophus
roseicapilla), a blue-and-gold macaw (Ara ararauna), an American robin (Turdus migratorius), a blue-fronted Amazon, a Toulouse grey goose, and a Panama boat-billed heron (8,9,11,13,15-17,29) To our knowledge, this is the first report of appendicular osteosarcoma in a ring-necked dove.
Interstitial melanin was present in the testicles of all large cockatoo species (1 Eolophus
roseicapillus; 3 Cacatua species), and, in an Australian king parrot (Alisterus scapularis), a superb parakeet (Polytelis swainsonii) and, to a lesser degree, a blue-and-gold macaw (Ara ararauna).
This is true especially in cockatoos (Cacatua and Eolophus
species), which seem to have a higher prevalence in the sum of reported cases (62%, 8 of 13 cases).
Jaensch et al (12) examined the effects of partial hepatectomy on plasma enzyme concentrations and galactose clearance tests in galahs (Eolophus
Heightened responsiveness to female-initiated displays in an Australian cockatoo, the galah (Eolophus
Abstract: To evaluate the health and nutritional status of 3 wild Australian psittacine species, plasma and hepatic mineral concentrations and plasma biochemical values were measured in wild-caught galahs (Eolophus
roseicapilla), long-billed corellas (Cacatua tenuirostris), and sulphur-crested cockatoos (Cacatua galerita).
