The Maine state veterinarian has asked that UMaine Extension encourage any bird owner with possible avian flu (HPAI) cases (sudden deaths, unexplained severely ill birds) to call this hotline number: 866.536.7593.
If poultry are ill or have died, but the onset of symptoms was slower, or the owner suspects Marek’s disease or other non-HPAI cause of loss, then they are encouraged to contact our Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory at 207.581.3874.
