Hello, I just ordered an item from a pet store that has live animals I was wondering should I be worried about any sickness that could potentially be carried on to the product if there was a bird that was sick?

What type of product? Is it in a sealed container? How big is the pet store? I would think the odds are slim but possible. But I have been in a one small store that had birds that I wouldn't buy anything from. If it's a large chain type store my guess is the products are far from the birds? Depending on what it is, you can disinfect with F10 to be safe.

Hello, it's a large chain called Dyno located in Quebec but the product was open, the seal had been open I'm not sure should I order another one?

If it's food, I'd return it. If it can be sterilized, I'd do that and keep it.
