AVIAN ATLAS OF ANATOMY

 

In association with Dr. Scott Echols (DVM), and the Grey Parrot Anatomy Project, this research is aimed at describing the respiratory system of the African grey parrot (Psittacus erithacus erithacus). This project is funded in part by the Association of Avian Veterinarians

Pulmonary disease in the domestic cat (in collaboration with Auburn University College of Vet Medicine)

Both round worms (Toxocara cati) and heart worms (Dirofilaria immitis) cause significant damage to the otherwise healthy lungs of cats. Respiratory lung disease was induced in cats through experimental exposure to heart worms (D. immitis) at Auburn University. CT scans were taken before and after infection to evaluate the extent of the damage (along with histological sections), and models were created to visually convey the extent and intensity of the damage in three dimensions. Similar methods were applied to a different set of cats using T. cati, in order to compare the type of pulmonary damage to the D. immitis cats.
