Call your vet right away; don't wait for symptoms to appear. Salmonella is treatable with antibiotics but it's important to take quick action.

Oh my gosh, I didn't know that! I grew up with a desert tortoise from when I was about 5 to when I was 15. Good to know. I wouldn't worry, it was minor contact and hopefully your bird has a good immune system and will be ok. I hope so.

Ive been doing research like crazy.

I live in NewYork and its snowing like crazy do i cant go out...plus the only aviary vet that lives around us only does appointments on tuesdays and next tuesday is New Years so the hospital is closed. So basically i cant bring him to the vet for 2 weeks. I have called a vet and he said that my russian tortoise that is full grown and 13 years old shouldnt carry salminella. That Salminella is moatlt just in baby or smaller tortoises. So he shouldnt have got anything. He said watch out for symptons but dont worry.

Im still worried... and his poop seems a lot more watery but there is no blood in it....what can I do? Im terrified!


Is he gonna be okay?

I am sure out of all these, one will be able to see your Cockatiel and get him/her antibiotics, it is important that you get onto this quickly, the sooner the better for the sake of your Cockatiels health.

To be fair (and it's terrible practice, I know...) I hardly ever remember to wash my hands after handling my tortoise/snakes/lizards... And I haven't ever had salmonella!

There are two threads on the same topic (this one and the one called "touched tortoise food"). It might be helpful if the mods combined the threads so all the advice is in the same place.

You may be able to find an emergency vet who can help you, although there's nothing that can be done until the weather clears up enough to travel. At the very least, I would recommend talking to another vet on the phone about the risks. I have no idea whether the first vet is correct or not.
