Ultimate Prevention Pack (DNA Bird Test + Psittacosis + PBFD + Polyomavirus)

$60.00

The absence of sexual dimorphism in juvenile stages and during adulthood for many species of birds makes it difficult or impossible to determine the sex based on the phenotype. The use of molecular markers to determine the sex of birds is a useful tool because of the accuracy and speed of results, while being a method that minimizes stress during blood sampling, compared with other invasive techniques that may affect the health or biological stability of the animal.

An electronic report of the results can be downloaded from the customer profile or a paper certificate can be mailed to the customer.

Two of the pathogens that most often affect parrots can be detected with a blood sample.

This not only protects the pet’s health, but also the health of its breeder and family because of the potential danger of bird to human transmission of psittacosis infections. Some species of birds can be carriers of both pathogens without showing visible clinical symptoms. Therefore, it is advisable to test all newly acquired birds and repeat at least once a year. It is also recommended for birds that have returned from events such as exhibitions or fairs.
