I just brought my new baby Pebbles home today and my wife has developed a head cold. Can this be given to Pebbles? And if so what should I do to minimize the effects? I'm sure I'll have it soon too and it's not possible to avoid our birds. Any advice would be very appreciated. :wf cinnamon:

I understand that we can pass on viruses to our birds and a cold is a virus. I would suggest that she washes her hands before handling your little bird to be on the safe side and avoid sneezing near her if at all possible. Check on Google if unsure.

Colds can not be passed on to your pets. Viruses are species specific.
