RE: [Sick Dinos]

I've read the posts in this thread about diseases seen in the fossil
remains of some dinosaurs (osteoarthritis, gout, osteomyelitis).

My question is, what contemporary aniumals *don't* get such things? Do
birds, for example, get gout?

I'm interested in what these diseases say about the metabolism and
physiology of the "victims".
