About parrot fever
Parrot fever (also called psittacosis or chlamydiosis) is caused by Chlamydophila psittaci bacteria. An infection with this bacterial species causes a loss of appetite, dehydration, diarrhea and conjunctivitis. If diagnosed in an early stage, parrot fever can effectively be treated with antibiotics. Parrot fever forms a health risk to humans as they may also be infected.
