    hi all

    Some advice please, I have come down with a really heavy cold within the last 24 hours, very similar to flu. I’m worried I may give it to Scruffy my Mealy Amazon, is this possible? Any advice would be gratefully appreciated, as I can be a bit of a worrier.

    I think you can relax as our colds do not get picked up by parrots, just have to be a little more cautious with hygiene but that's for everyone else. I hope you fill better soon

    Scruffy should be fine. just make sure you wash your hands well before touching and handling him, preparing his food etc.
    Hope you feel better soon xxx

    Our vet in the UK always seemed to have a cold (either that or he was allergic to animals!)

    it was most likely the latter Wendy and he was either a glutton for punishment or very sadistic :risas3::risas3::risas3:
