Abstract: This study showed a low prevalence of Salmonellaspp. in captive psittacines from zoos and a commercial establishment of Fortaleza. None of the isolated serotypes (S. Lexington, S. Saintpaul and S. Newport) have yet been reported in Amazona aestiva, Ara chloropteraor Melopsittacus undulatus. However, the fact that most birds presented negative for Salmonellaspp. may not imply the absence of this pathogen in these birds, since the intermittent excretion is a well-known characteristic of this microorganism.

“…There are some reports of Salmonella sp. being isolated from psittacine of conservationist, breeding and rehabilitation facilities, even in Fortaleza, Brazil from the species Ara chloroptera, Amazona aestiva and Melopsittacus undulatus, however this is the first report in Brazil with a pet psittacine (Marietto-Gonçalves & Almeida 2010, Bezerra et al 2013, Hidasi et al 2013, Lopes et al 2014, Almeida et al 2015.…”

“…There is scarce information about antimicrobial resistance and diseases in pet birds, however there are reports involving free-living birds as potential disseminators of E. coli and Salmonella sp. resistant to cefalosporins, ampicillin, streptomycin, sulfoxazole and tetracycline isolated from passerines and columbids (Andrés et al 2013, Poirel et al 2012, Lopes et al 2014. This study aimed to perform a survey of E. coli and Salmonella spp.…”

“…Além disso, a população de salmonelas é muito menor do que de outras bactérias da microbiota entérica (WHO Isolation..., 2010). Outro fator a ser considerado é a possibilidade da excreção intermitente do agente, o qual poderia estar ausente no momento da coleta das fezes, impossibilitando seu isolamento e identificação naquelas amostras (Allgayer et al, 2008;Harcourt-Brown, 2010;Lopes et al, 2014;Lopes et al, 2016).…”

“…Atualmente, mais de 2.600 sorovares são reconhecidos (Guibourdenche et al, 2010;Terrestrial..., 2010). O sorotipo isolado de Psittaciformes com maior frequência é S. Typhimurium (Godoy, 2007;Harcourt-Brown, 2010), porém, em seu estudo, Lopes et al (2014), ao utilizarem o método microbiológico convencional, isolaram S. Lexington, S. Saintpaul e S. Newport.…”

“…Apesar das medidas sanitárias serem, indiscutivelmente, grande responsável pela baixa prevalência de Salmonella em aves e outros animais criados em cativeiro, Lopes et al (2014) apresentaram outro argumento que pode justificar a baixa frequência de identificação de Salmonella spp. em amostras fecais.…”
