newly pregnant and my parrot is sick

Post by danibarbara » Thu Jul 14, 2016 7:47 am

Hi all..
i need your advise, i have an african grey since two years last week he was sick he got a respiratory infection and i gave him anti-biotics after two days he started to get better but the thing is that i just discovered that i am 5 week pregnant 3 days ago and then i got the flu, i am afraid that i caught it from the parrot i am not sure if there is any concerns about the baby and the pregnancy,

is there any tests i can do to make sure that he didnt pass any thing to me that might affect the baby
thank you very much

Hi, how did you get on? Is your parrot ok? I doubt you would have got flu from your bird, if he only had a respiratory infection. There are tests you ca do for scittacosis, and pbfd but if your bird had them he would be very I'll. Hope you're both ok, baby too x
