BIRD FLU UPDATE - Feb 2017
The UK is currently classified as a "prevention zone" due to a highly pathogenic
strain of bird flu (avian influenza virus) present in Europe. Due to further cases
being diagnosed in the UK this will remain the case until 28/2/17.
The Prevention Zone requires all poultry and other captive birds to be housed
or, where it is not practical to do so, requires steps to be taken to keep them
separate from wild birds.
For more information please follow the links below or call the practice to
speak to one of the vets.
