Retrospective Analysis of Cataract Formation and Nutritional Etiology in a Managed Collection of Parakeet Auklets (Aethia psittacula)

JOURNAL OF AVIAN MEDICINE AND SURGERY, 35(4), 390–401.

By: B. Phillips n, E. Dierenfeld*, R. English*, B. Troan n, K. Reininger*, D. Zombeck*, R. DeVoe n, B. Wolfe n, M. Loomis n, L. Minter n

MeSH headings : Animals; Birds; Cataract / etiology; Cataract / veterinary; Charadriiformes; Retrospective Studies
TL;DR: The parakeet auklet is a piscivorous seabird with a natural diet of various invertebrate and teleost species, which is challenging to replicate in a managed collection, which was hypothesized to be related to inappropriate vitamin A and E levels. (via Semantic Scholar)
