Free Diagnosis of Avian Influenza for Backyard Poultry Growers

The prevalence of Avian Influenza in the US continues to increase, and the surveillance and practices have become more defined.  In the past the Idaho Department of Agriculture has distributed test kits to Extension Office.  However, it has been found that this actually slows down the diagnostic process.

The Idaho Department of Agriculture (ISDA) or the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) will respond, if warranted, directly to the premise with a veterinarian or livestock inspector to inspect the animals and take samples for rapid evaluation.  If you suspect that your poultry is infected with Avian Influenza please call at once:

USDA :  208-373-1620
ISDA:     208-332-8540

For more information on Avian Influenza click on the image below to go to the USDA Animal Plant Health Inspection Service on Avian Influenza.
