If you’ve recently become the owner of a pet Conure Parrot, you may be wondering if birds need routine vaccinations. It’s a good idea to schedule a routine check up with your vet North Phoenix, AZ to find out what vaccines are needed. As with dogs and cats, vaccines differ from region to region. In general, the only vaccine that birds need is the Polyomavirus vaccine. The Polyomavirus is a virus that can affect a bird’s organs and other parts of its body. Baby birds are the most susceptible to this virus and rarely survive. The vaccination schedule should be given to baby birds at five to seven weeks of age. Juvenile and adult birds can be infected by the virus, but are most often able to overcome the virus and make a full recovery. It’s important to keep infected birds separated as the virus can easily spread.
