Environmental Avian Testing
About this test
Environmental Avian testing is done to determine if the area where you have your birds is infected with diseases. Even if your birds are not showing symptoms, you need to make sure that not only your birds are healthy, but also the area is clean of diseases. Our test will determine the various diseases that appear in the areas that you chose to test. The problem is especially worrisome in residential areas, as many of them are airborne and can be transferred to humans just by being around droppings.
