Keeping Your Budgie Healthy And Disease-Free
If you have several Budgerigars, introducing new birds may expose them to illnesses, thus it is doubly important to have a disease prevention program that is formulated with your vet’s help.
The need to keep the aviary thoroughly clean at all times cannot be overemphasized. It is an important management technique to help protect your pet birds from disease and parasites. Regular scrubbing of bird droppings and other organic materials should be undertaken before a disinfectant is applied throughout the cage. Applying disinfectant when organic materials are still present will only be useless and a waste of money.
When introducing new birds to the group, it is best to observe a quarantine period of at least 42 days to allow time for health problems to be detected or manifested.If you have concerns or reservations about mixing new birds to your resident birds, don’t hesitate to consult with your veterinarian.
