Join us for this very important FREE, live webinar hosted by Laura Doering, former editor of Bird Talk magazine and Birds USA magazine. Our special guest, Susan Orosz Ph.D., DVM, DABVP (Avian), DECZM (Avian), will provide an update on Avian Bornavirus(ABV) and how it can affect our various parrot species. She will discuss this complex neurologic disease, including symptoms and some therapies that can help. She will explain why some researchers are using the term Avian Ganglioneuritis for this disease, and how it may be linked to some Feather Destructive Behavior. Editor’s Notes: Because this virus can be “dormant” in a pet bird for decades, with no illness, this is a must-view for all bird owners! We will not be fielding live questions during this webinar, but Dr. Orosz will spend time discussing common questions that come up over birds and their care relating to this condition. However, you may submit questions by email before the webinar, or using Q&A during the webinar, and while they may not be addressed individually, there may be a future webinar based on what bird owners are asking about this disease.
