Back in feb i got a newly weened black cap conure from a breeder. approx a month later he got sick and I got to the vet with not enough time :'( He was such a sweet little baby.
The vet said probably parrot fever. I researched a bit and my guess was either polyoma or PDD, not parrot fever. He did not have any eye problems, and i didn't notice any problems with him breathing. He had lethargy, weight loss, diarrhea, typical SBS(sick bird syndrome). So really, no one knows and will never know. Im kicking myself for not "maning up" at the time and getting a necropsy.
So my question to you, is how do you disinfect your house from polyoma (assuming the worst, again, kicking myself for not getting a necropsy). Obviously bleach everything that can be bleached, but what about the carpets!, the couch, tv, books, etc. oxy fresh and dent-a-gene? does pet focus actually work? (seems to good to be true). does gse kill the virus? or the vinegar and hydrogen peroxide combo? apv vaccine?? Any info would be appreciated. Ive researched everywhere online. And should i dispose of the cage? :/ ive heard different opinions. I just want to disinfect my house so it is safe to get another bird sometime in the future.
side-note: i do/did not currently have any other birds or animals.
