Hi Again......I want to get a good Air Purifier for my House that will eliminate bird feathers, allergens, toxins etc that is ozone free & ion free. Have you heard of this brand. Of course, whatever I buy needs to be safe for my TWEETIES & myself..... Thanks again💗

Austin Air Healthmate Junior Air Purifier (HM200)
Hello again and it looks like you've found a strictly air filtering purifier. Nothing I've found on this, even via user testimonials, insinuate or prove any harmful properties for birds.

---------

I would also have to continue to suggest that regular vacuuming with a good cannister vac helps a great deal too.

I do this up to four times a day - it's not as time consuming as it might sound.

Also, if the birds are in a room that has carpeting you might want to consider removing the carpeting and replace with wood or laminate floors; or stone, marble, etc. in order to keep the environment healthier.

------------

I respect your determination to do right by the flock. I'm behind you all the way so ask me all you want

Also, my little English Budgie who is 2+ years old hurt the inside of his right claw. He just LOVES to play and do all of the things that our little racy PARROTLET does. I took I'm to my vet......she examined him an found this inflammation and prescribed generic Mobic .01 per day. One day he will play ALOT, the next day he plays & then he will lay out on his perch & talk......sometimes he doesn't sit up for awhile. He just ays horizontal(This is the way he sleeps as well) then after a bit he will get up and be climbing on the side of his cage, or eating. I am thinking he is just "resting" his sore claw??? I gave my vet's office(they o ALOT of Holistic Treatments as well) an update this past Saturday......Do you think this is NORMAL? If not? What do you recommend?

As for me...my mysterious illness continues😖😖😖😖I went to Northwestern Memorial Hospital 2 weeks ago o see the Chief of Digestive Disorders. He came up with NOTHING other than he has.seen some strange symptoms in patients who have Fibromyalgia & Digestive Surgeries😖.... Another Bone Marrow Biopsy This week to see if Parvovirus is still lurking inside me........I do have a site on www.caringbridge.com. If you have a way that I can intact you o I've you my full name....ou can go there & read my long story. The owner of my vets office has actually helped me previously with other issues he suspected I had. I am always looking fir advice & continue to seek medical treatment, tests etc find the cause of my illness. It's getting tiring & frustrating as its been nearly 1 year since this started.....THANK YOU....💗💗💗💗KK

Hi...I just made a contribution to your rescue efforts! You should be able to get my name? Love your site! And THANK YOU FOR SAVING & HELPING GOD'S PRECIOUS CREATURES! SOME OF THE STORIES I HAVE READ JUST TURN MY STOMACH😪😪😪😪😪😪I HAD TO UNSUBSCRIBE FROM ALL OF MY FB PAGES INVOLVING ANIMAS LOST OR UNWANTED ANYMORE......MY HEART JUST WEEPS😩😩😩😩
-- I'm sorry it took so long for me to get back to you, but good news and bad news today in that we got a blue & gold out of a bad situation, but the greenwing ended up sold to an inexperienced person with more dollars than sense

I expect it will be back in the system soon enough so we'll just keep waiting

Your tweeties should be fine with that air filter. As usual, I'd prefer the machine not be particularly close to them in order to err on the side of caution.

I feel for you with the Fibromyalgia. The disease that only recently began to be taken seriously - no cure, no real treatment, but at least it's getting the respect it deserves. Now let there be a cure
