The research work was carried out by examining swabs and/or droppings in 235 birds (belonging to 12 orders and 56 species) from the pet birds, birds were presented to Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex, Mumbai Veterinary College, Affiliated Bai Sakarbai Dinshaw Petit Hospital for Animals, private veterinary clinics, pet shops and private aviaries in and around Mumbai. All samples were tested for Chlamydia spp. (Genus specific) and Chlamydia psittaci (Species specific) by Polymerase Chain Reaction, 7 birds (n=7/235) were tested positive for Chlamydia spp. but did not show positive result for Chlamydia psittaci. Percent prevalence of Chlamydia spp. was found to be 2.97% (7/235). The positive cases detected in this study were from the aviaries around Mumbai (n=7).
