Budgies, parrots, macaws, and conures can make lovely pets. Birds enjoy being cared for and make strong bonds with their caretakers. They are also extremely intelligent, thrive in small living spaces, and are generally inexpensive to feed. Their brightly colored feathers are beautiful to look at and their silly antics are endlessly entertaining.
Fresh, outdoor air is important to your pet bird’s health but, for many bird owners, finding space and time to take their feathered friends outside for some fresh air can be difficult. Many birds need to be trained for outdoor outings as well since the experience can be overstimulating for birds who have not spent much time outside. Of course, you need to have a portable cage, which many bird owners do not have.
For some bird owners, outdoor adventures are simply not an option due to weather. Exotic birds need to be kept warm and for owners who do not live in a warm climate, taking them outdoors can do more harm than the benefits of fresh air can justify, and opening a window can cause an expensive heating bill.
Why is Fresh Air So Important?
Indoor air pollution is a major concern for bird owners since birds are more sensitive to toxins present in our homes. You can avoid creating some of these toxins which may affect your pet bird’s health by: avoiding non-stick cookware, irons/iron board covers, hairdryers, tobacco products, aerosols, new carpeting, wood stoves, incense, scented candles, air fresheners, and cleaning fluids when around your birds. Make sure to get your furnace services annually to minimize the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
The air purifier market can be a difficult market for bird owners to navigate since some of the products on the market can be dangerous for birds. Ozone generators, ionizers, or plasma cluster air purifiers are all products that can be risky. They are all categorized as “ozone producers” which means that they produce a chemical that can be damaging to your pet’s respiratory system.
CritterZone is not in this ozone-producing category, instead, it is an “Air Naturalizer.” Once the unit is plugged in it begins generating negative and positive ions, giving indoor air the ability to break down pollutants just like the sun and wind do for outdoor air. This is different from the other products out there as it does not produce any harmful chemicals during this process, the entire process can be directly aligned with things that happen in nature.
