    Default Quick response needed please! Dead pigeon

    Sorry to message asking for advise when I have not been active for so long, its just too hard since loosing Jims.
    We are looking to move house and just viewed a property and there was a dead pigeon in the fireplace which is in the room which would be Cookies room where she would free range.
    Is there any risk for her health wise that could remain once it has been removed?

    I am sure that you would clean the room, but it would be fine.

    I'm really starting to worry i won't be able to handle this.
    This move is supposed to be a good move for the family, a fresh start, i would hate to move and my mental health to decline.
    It just feels very similar to when we moved and found a bait box but this time its a dead pigeon.
    I dont know if I can cope with it?

    It's fine. Nothing from a dead pigeon can be transferred to a rabbit. You are over anxious and over thinking because of the stress of moving.

    So you all would be happy and confident about putting your rabbit in the same room and allowing it to roam free and coming into contact with the area the pigeon was?

    Anything can be cleaned off with disinfectant. I would be happy having the rabbit free range after it has been disinfected, yes. Even if it wasn't disinfected, any microbes would die on their own.
