 BIRD FLU UPDATE - August 2017
There are currently (as of 28/8/17) no control zones in the UK. This means that there
is no need to keep captive birds inside and all bird gatherings are allowed.
However, it is certain that the virus has not gone away so bird keepers should remain vigilant
for signs of disease as well as maintaining good biosecurity year round but especially
from September-February, the main migratory season for overwintering wildfowl.
For more information please follow the links below or call the practice to
speak to one of the vets.
