a disease that has him as one of the most fearsome in history is smallpox, which it has been completely wiped out through vaccination, a disease that claimed millions of lives, but very few know that when they hear trembles, is that smallpox occurs not only in humans, but it currently exists which affects birds, which can be moderate to severe. fowl pox is caused by a virus called variola avium family of avipox 200 nanometers, with adn inside, and although the virus of the poxvirus affects the human being same family to which he belonged human smallpox, this subgroup It does not infect humans, which is known multiple strains that are classified according to their condition and symptoms. the means of transmission is caused by a vector, the mosquito which transfers the virus from a sick bird to another through its bite to eat blood, saliva and inoculates the virus acquires the bite occurs in regions where there are few or no feathers, ie near the eyes, the crest, the legs, the Peak and sometimes close wing keel, which in mammals is the breastbone. It is estimated that 60 families of birds can contrarla, where the most common are poultry chickens, whether for egg production or meat, turkeys and pigeons, both wild and for competition, seabirds such as gulls, ducks and pelicans are also victims of it, birds of prey and parrots are birds who are rarely affected, but depending reach collapse strain and birds which they are highly susceptible as canaries. its symptoms can be divided into 2 performances a dry causing virus, is the rapid formation of skin growths, in the region peak where the mosquito, where these growths stretch both peel and form breaks a scab, so that when it occurs near the eyes, which is the most dangerous place because they can lose eyeball, besides the birds they tend to be very aggressive with their sick fellows that peck, especially by biting where there is a wound expelling blood, where birds are the red and this fluid causes start to peck uncontrollably while they can cause death of the patient being most dangerous situation or symptoms of dry wounds become infected by diseases secondary as bacterial or fungal. but the wet form is the most dangerous also called Diphtheria, ie the same lesions that appear on the skin, are presented in the respiratory mucosa, esophagus causing clogging the airway, preventing that feed and producing a choking, causing mortality 50% of birds arrive at present, but the birds have a mortality 100% are canary, as any strain causes a presentation Diphtheria them. so its proper evidence lies in growths that arise and the time of year, because mosquitoes increase its population in the rainy season and in the winter its population is very low or zero, where avian pox is distributed worldwide, except for very cold areas, the mountains and the poles, but if even to confirm the diagnosis can be send to serological tests or isolation of the virus but these are very expensive, especially if used to diagnose in poultry production. You can not give a drug against the virus, so treatment is given against bacterial infections, injuries is important antiseptics put them having a dye to disguise it and no injuries agredan others, for presentation Diphtheria they should give food and water manually, but we depend on the immune system to act. a vaccine to inoculate, which should be applied when an outbreak begins at the ranch, loft or cage, this to prevent uncontrolled infection, the lesions appear in dangerous regions as the eyes, that the strain is much less pathogenic and generate antibodies rapidly, where the most common is to be applied on top of the legs. apart from This is necessary to mosquito nets, prevent waterlogging and mites and retírales kill mosquitoes in order to prevent the uncontrolled spread and having a protocol, it is easier to cater to all birds. a disease that produces a low production in poultry facilities, many affected both domestic and wild animals and an example of what was smallpox in humans today, that’s smallpox avian.
