On the back of the febreeze bottle, it says it is iams recommended and is safe for dog and cats. Does anyone know if it is also safe to use around birds?

Never use sprays or chemicals of any kind around birds.

They have incredibly delicate respiratory systems, and any chemicals - even fumes from overheated Teflon pans/paint/insecticide - can kill them instantly!

Scented candles! These too can kill a little bird, or at the very least, make it very sick.
