Macaw Wasting Disease in Birds

Treatment

 

Antiviral drugs do not help cure the infection, but a liquid diet may extend the bird's life. However, euthanasia is usually recommended by veterinarians.

 

Prevention

 

The bird's environment should be regularly cleaned and disinfected. Also, all birds suspected of infection should be quarantined.
