Avian pox is an important disease in birds of prey in Bahrain. A live pigeon pox vaccine was administered to hunting falcons (Falco species) together with other therapeutic methods to arrest the development of primary stage pox lesions and for the treatment of well established secondary stage pox lesions. Quarantine and general hygiene procedures were also used as an integral part of the management and control of the disease.
