Never Kiss A Parrot

Be careful of animals that can be a health pest!

Because if you give her an unwanted peck, she may give you Psittacosis. Whazzat? That's another way of spelling 'deadly attraction'. ... and while you're at it, you might even notice your pussy nails (You!), (Scratch, start!) Jumping fleas, and (Eeeagh!) Hairy worms ...

If you are suddenly surrounded by high fever, chills and headaches, you may think you have malaria. Or even inflammation of the lungs. So maybe your doctor. Then he can start many anti-malarial drugs - even those with malaria. You won't get better, so he'll turn to strong antibiotics. Again, don't go. Then both of you will beat your forehead in frustration. But in the end, if your doctor is smart enough, he or she will ask you if you have a bird. You will answer affirmatively. Suddenly, his face would light up with the expression 'Eureka'. He or she will know that you have Psittacosis.

Come again, say, Psittacosis. It is a disease transmitted to humans by birds. When an older bird and a parakeet are the cause, sorry, bring, Ornithosis, is the word used. Other birds that carry the disease are pigeons and chickens (although they are less common than chicken). In addition to the symptoms mentioned, you may have severe, dry, and intermittent coughs and occasionally shed some blood and blood. There are common physical ailments and the back and neck muscles can become stiff and painful, so the doctor may be confused with meningitis. Some patients feel tired, restless and depressed and complain of insomnia too. With so many possible symptoms, it's easy to see how a doctor can be misled. Especially when you consider that there are more complications of the disease - including pleurisy with effusion or water in the lungs, inflammation of the heart muscle or membrane myocarditis or pericarditis. Malady can even kill. Really kissing older birds, not washing their hands after handling the birds (and their meals) before you sit down to lunch, and staying so close to them can make you suffer from psittacosis a week or two after contact, how long the incubation period is. Occasionally, however, you may only get a mild form of abuse that may be lost on its own.

But why take the chance? The disease can be diagnosed by getting x-rays done; it shows a picture like pneumonia. There is also protein in the urine. But the verification test is a blood culture that reveals the causative bacteria. Otherwise, the overview of the disease can be misleading, as Psittacosis can be misinterpreted for Tuberculosis and infectious mononucleosis and other conditions listed above. Tetracycline is the best cure for this disease.


You've probably heard of a disease known as Teeth disease, but is there really such a thing? Yes, it's rare, though possible. All you need is a cat, sharp claws, some provocations and - OUCH! He grabbed a nail in you! What happens next? A small swelling such as acne can appear on the scars, about three to ten days later. Two weeks later, the lymph nodes in the neck (or armpit or thighs) become swollen and painful. Usually, this is all happening. But in some patients it may also be high fever, headache, nausea and fatigue. Only five percent develop a rash that resembles measles.

Skin tests confirm the diagnosis. A swollen gland biopsy can also be performed as additional confirmation.

The disease cannot be transmitted from one person to another, so there is no need to isolate the patient. Usually, treatment is not needed, other than providing a cure for fever. The result is very good. The swollen gland disappears spontaneously within two to six months. The next immunity to this disease lasts a lifetime. On the whole, this is a very rare disease, so you don't have to throw away your poor cat.


People can get skin irritation from dogs, cats and mice. Some people do not respond to flea bites, but to those who are sensitive, flea salts cause swelling, redness, redness. There are intense itching, so they scratch the affected area again and again, introducing infection into the skin, which cures or develops pustules. This condition is known as Flea Dermatitis. One can control fleas by keeping the house and all pets thoroughly clean (yourself, too!), Frequently loving their pets and beds with powders or by using flea collars. This dermatitis is treated with soothing creams and anti-allergic pills.


Caterpillars seem to appear in the most unexpected places - like the chair where you want to sit, or on your sweater that hangs over your clothes! Before you can say 'furry horror', someone has attacked you. And leave the stinging hair embedded in your skin. You feel the burning pain in the area. Redness and urticaria (hives) develop. And the more you try, the deeper you push your hair inside. Several victims attempted to use the dough, which was rolled in a one-to-one movement over the area. Let me tell you a better method, which is definitely fire - use plaster adhesive. Just change the strands to the skin where the hair is embedded, press, lift one end and pull it straight - presto, all the hair out and itch is gone.

If left alone, inflammation usually disappears within 24 hours, but in some people there is a severe allergy that may need to be treated with I.V. Calcium Gluconate. In less serious cases, soothing anti-allergic pills and creams help after the hair has been pulled out.
