Rainbow Exotics, a whole sale bird breeder for Petsmart has confirmed cases of psittacosis. This sign is in Ohio, but they supply the entire US.

If you have purchased a bird from Petsmart please bring them to a vet. Psittacosis is a highly contagious zoonotic disease that can kill your bird and create flu-like symptoms in humans. It is treatable with antibiotics for your birds if caught early. It is generally not serious in people, although if left untreated it can be.

If you have bought toys or cages from Petsmart please disinfect them before giving them to your birds! Or return them. Psittacosis can live in feather dust and droppings for months.

Please share. And consider adopting your next bird from a rescue.

Not enough of you reblogged this. Please, signal boost!

As an employee I can confirm this is true! It really fucking sucks. Our vendor is shit.

I will say though that if you purchased a bird from Petsmart within that time frame, they WILL cover costs of testing+potential treatment. The testing alone is about 100 bucks according to my vet, so don’t hesitate to milk Petsmart for some moolah.
