The objective of this study was to describe the clinical and pathological characteristics of true parrots (Amazona aestiva) arising from trafficking seized by the Wild Animals Triage Center (CETAS) in the State of Paraíba, Brazil. In order to establish the real condition which they were. The study was developed at CETAS in the Municipality of Cabedelo in the State of Paraíba. Fifteen birds from seizures were used, and nine of them were anesthetized. Blood samples were collected, body weight was checked and liver biopsy was performed. In the other six birds, that died, a necroscopic examination was performed. The results indicated that the birds had a poor body condition. Histopathological and serological findings showed very poor health conditions, and indicated the need to develop a health recovery work to reintroduce and release these birds in the wild.
