Kitchen: Avian Alert
The anatomy of a bird is very different from that of a dog or cat, says Dr. Lee. Make sure your bird is far away from any room you are using cleaning products in. “Birds don’t have lungs; they have air sacs. Anatomically they just do not handle any kind of chemical well,” she says. This includes the gas that is emitted when cooking on Teflon pans. When cooking, take your bird and its cage far away from the kitchen as burning Teflon could be fatal.
