Some aspects of the pathology of wild and exotic animals in captivity

The causes of death of 783 wild animals (262 mammals, 493 birds, 27 reptiles and 1 amphibian), which were admitted to the Laboratory of Pathology of the Faculdade de Medicina Veterinaria in Lisbon between 1969 and 1997, were investigated. PM examination, histopathological and, where necessary, additional bacteriological, parasitological and mycological analyses were carried out. Cause of death could not be diagnosed in 71 mammals, 103 birds or 9 reptiles.
