Should I Make Quarantine Longer?

Lilly has been sick with a chill, and is almost completely better. Quarantine is due to end on the 1st of March, but I'm thinking that I should make it longer. I'm worried that the chill has weakened her immune system or something.
What would you suggest? 15 days longer? Another month?

Yes, you are doing the right thing by quarantining longer. I would say at least another 1-2 weeks, but whenever you feel they are ready. Better to be safe than sorry!

Ratzy if you worried about her immune system get some Vetafarm Probotics. It is a product i keep in my fridge always. It's also safe to give to your parrots daily to keep them healthy.

Re: Should I Make Quarantine Longer?

Probotic is one product that every parrot owner should have. Everyday use of probotics helps maintain a balanced digestive system. I use it everyday in my hand rearing formula. I also give a good dose when a baby goes to a new home.

If your bird is fluffed up a heavy dose will help.

Re: Should I Make Quarantine Longer?

I was wondering how Lilly was doing. I am glad to hear she feels better, now you can still buy the bigger cage as well.

I would also quarantine for longer - your instinct should always take priority when it comes to safety.

The more expensive your fish, sensitive to medications or attached to your fish you are, the greater the need for a quarantine tank.
