    Keep tweety safe with bird poison prevention tips

    Following poison prevention tips to keep your companion avian in the “sing” of things:
    * Birds are highly sensitive to inhalant fumes, so please avoid exposing yours to fumes from self-cleaning ovens and overheated cookware, automobile exhaust, tobacco smoke, glues and paints, insecticidal fumigants, perfume and hair spray.
    * Keep all prescription and over-the-counter drugs out of beak's reach, preferably in closed cabinets. Pain killers, cold medicines, anticancer drugs, vitamins and diet pills are all examples of human medications that can be lethal to birds, even in small amounts.
    * Never allow your bird access to areas in which cleaning agents are being used or stored. Should your pet ingest them, he could suffer from a range of symptoms, depending on the substance, from mild stomach upset to severe burns of the tongue, mouth and crop.
    * Foods and beverages that could be dangerous to birds include:
    avocados chocolate in any form coffee & tea moldy or spoiled foods onions & garlic tomato leaves and stems yeast dough
