Parrots As Pets

I am sure you have all heard the saying - 'Parrots have more personality than a goldfish'- and while this is very true, there are a few home truths to be known about parrots before rushing out to buy one as a pet.

 Parrots are amazing animals, because, like a dog, they have the ability to become a very close companion for you. But it is far easier to train a dog initially than a parrot. Parrots are sensitive creatures that must be looked after and nurtured, and the more love and attention that they are given, the more their individual personalities will shine out.

 Remember that a parrot is originally a wild animal and that is is meant to be living out in the forest. Therefore they can be dangerous at times and also temperamental. Although it is not possible to send a bird that has been domesticated back into the wild to fend for itself, you will need to make sure your bird is given lots of attention and kept stimulated to avoid it becoming stressed and bored, which can result in it pulling out its feathers.

 A word of caution - do not buy a parrot for a small child. Parrots have very sharp beaks that can cause some serious damage if one is not careful. For this reason they need specialised training and handling initially, so that they can be taught not to bite or attack.

 If you are looking for a parrot as a family pet, you may need to change to a dog for this, because most parrots only bond with one person and tend to be aggressive or just ignore other members of the family. They can also get quite possessive over the person that they have chosen to bond with.

 An Amazon parrot is probably one of the most aggressive, and would make the least suitable family pet. If it is a family bird you are after, rather go for a budgie or a cockatiel.

 If you do not like a noise, then a parrot is not for you. Parrots tend to be very vocal and this can irritate some people. This is another thing that you will need to train out of them and it can be done with patience, but they will still be quite noisy at certain times of the day, even once they are trained.

 Make sure that you purchase an adequately sized cage for your pet, as they do need a fair amount of space to move around in, and it is cruel to keep them in a cage that is too small for them. Make sure to keep your bird out of the wind as birds hate drafts.

 A well trained and cared for parrot can be a wonderful addition to your home and your life, and they can give you years and years of joy, as they have a long life span. For more information on parrots, visit: http://parrotsaspets.

Choosing Your Pet--A Guide

Most individuals have an idea just what type of pet they want; however, the maintenance of a pet can cause some concern. Knowing how to choose the correct pet for you may be easy.

First some pets take more care than others. Dogs are very needy animals. They are very sensitive towards their owners. I am sure most of you have heard of dogs tearing up a house when left along all day. Dogs can get bored even when they have other dog companions and toys. They need the human interaction. Most dog owners take their dogs out for a walk before work and after work for the exercise and play time. 

Other owners who work outside will often let their dogs come to work with them to keep them out of trouble. Cats on the other hand can amuse themselves and as long as you put your valuables on a shelf, they cannot reach and keep a clean house they will sleep, look out windows, and play with toys while you are away. Fish are another type of pet that is typically low maintenance except for cleaning the fish tank.

Pet care is very important when you own a pet. They need attention from their owners, positive reinforcement, training, and love. Fish are usually excluded from this statement, as they just need food, proper tank maintenance, and a few plants to sustain life, however the point is proper pet care is required when you own any pet. The decision will be yours to make in choosing what the right pet is for you. Above I mentioned three types of pets and little about their care, now I am going to look at it a little more.

While dogs are high maintenance and require the most training they are also one of the best pets to own. They can alert you to danger, alert you to someone at the door, and give unconditional love back. A dog only asks in return for proper care and a great deal of attention. 

If you cannot be home all the time, you will want to make sure the dog has a roof over their heads in case of inclement weather, and a huge yard to play in. Some dogs can jump fences so it may be best to have a dog run in the yard so they can move about, but not escape.

Cats on the other hand can be high or low maintenance depending on breed as well as personality. Some cats require hours of people attention while others shirk attention. Some cats belong to a one pet household. They do not like to share their owner's affections and will become upset if not mean towards the infiltrator. Others need the playmate's attention to live happily. It will be hard to determine just which type of cat you own when you first buy them as kittens as their personalities are just developing.

Pet care is the most important factor when you are deciding which pet is right for you and your home. You will want to consider all the pet care needs of the animals you are looking at as well as the breed you are looking at to determine if they will have a happy place in your home.

Dog Allergies

Are you a pet owner who thinks that you may be allergic to your dog?  If you are, you may be looking for guidance.  After all, there is nothing worse than realizing that you are allergic to your beloved pet or pets.

One of the first things that you will want to do is make sure that you do have a pet allergy.  Sometimes, the symptoms of having a pet allergy can be caused by other allergies or by another medical illness, such as the flu or the common cold.  

Those who suffer from pet allergies may experience a runny nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, postnasal drip, develop a skin rash, or have difficultly breathing. 

If you experience severe allergy symptoms or if you would like conformation that you do have a pet allergy, schedule a visit with a healthcare professional.

As for how you can go about treating your pet allergies that are due to your dog, you can remove the dog from your home.  If you are unable to do so or if you choose not to, you will want to see if you can find it a good home.  Friends or family members who are willing to take your pet are often considered the best option.  Even if you want to keep your dog with you, there are still a number of steps that you can take to seek relief from some common dog allergy symptoms.

The best way to limit your allergy symptoms that can be attributed to your dog is to keep your dog or dogs out of your bedroom.  The bedroom is the room where we spend most of our time.  For that reason, your dog or dogs should be kept out of your bedroom.  

Doing so, may limit the number of irritating symptoms you display.  It may also help to get you a good night of sleep.  In addition to the bedroom, it is also important to examine other rooms that you may spend a good portion of your time.  Consider keeping your dog or dogs out of that room as well.

Another great tip involves not letting your dog or dogs climb on your furniture.  This is particularly important if you like to lie down on your couch or rest in a reclining chair.  You do not want to have pet dander and hair in your face.  If you must, covers can be used.  

There are a number of cloth style covers that can be used.  They are a great alternative to the unattractive plastic covers.  With that in mind, should you use cloth covers, be sure to wash them every few days or when too much pet hair accumulates.

Investing in an air purifier is another way that you can seek relief from a dog allergy, without having to find a new home for your beloved pet.  Air purifiers work by eliminating air particles, including pet dander. 

 It is best if you search online for air purifiers that are designed to help those with allergies.  These air purifiers can easily be found with a standard internet search.  Also, HEPA air filters and HEPA air purifiers are known for their amazing results.

Vacuuming as much as possible is another way to manage the symptoms that you may be experiencing due to having a dog allergy.  In addition to vacuuming often, be sure to take a good, close look at the vacuum cleaner you are using.  

There are now vacuum cleaners that use HEPA filters and they come highly rated and recommended.  In fact, there are even some vacuum cleaners that are targeted towards and marketed towards pet owners.  You should examine these vacuum cleaners.

The above mentioned steps are a few of the many steps that you can take to seek relief from allergies that you may be suffering due to close contact with your dog.  As reminder, a doctor may be able to prescribe you prescription medication or recommend over-the-counter products that may work just as well.  With that said, remember that treating allergies, especially pets allergies, naturally is usually much safer.

Nail Salon Air Quality

The air quality in a nail salon is often clogged with fumes from volatile organic chemicals that evaporate easily into room temperature air.  They can include fumes from perms, color, as well as smoke from pressing irons and curlers.

Other products can send formaldehyde into the air and nail products such as polish, polish remover, and hardener can all make the air smell bad from a long way away.  

If neighboring businesses complain, the effect of these fumes daily on lungs, eyes, throat and the overall well-being of those who encounter them every day is scary.

The short term effects of these chemicals is irritating and can include burning eyes, dry throat, a dry cough, headaches, dizziness, nausea, and a general feeling of apathy and lack of energy.  The long term effects are more serious.

Forced to deal with these chemicals, the body tries to eliminate them.  Eliminating these chemicals puts extra stress on the liver and lungs.  These are not 2 organs that you want stressed out!

The best way to assure that you breathe clean air daily is to use an air purifier to filter these chemicals from the air continuously.  And continuously is the key.  24-hour filtration means that the level of fumes is never allowed to build to an unhealthy level.

Pet Hair Air Purifier

Pet hair can become a huge issue if you live with a warm-blooded animal such as a dog, cat, bunny, or ferret. 

The very feature that makes them so cuddly and adorable can become a real problem unless you take steps to keep it under control.

Baths to remove excess hair, brushing, proper diet, and adhesive rollers are all great ways to minimize the amount you will deal with.  

But ultimately, the most efficient and consistent way to cut down on hair in the air is to use a filter that can effectively remove it.

Big pieces are easily removed by pre-filters that are relatively inexpensive.  They are made of a cotton ball-like fabric and should be placed as the first filters inside a unit.

And if you’re trying to remove particles of any kind, the unit must have a high efficiency particle arresting filter that can trap particles as small as .3 microns.

This is important because in addition to hair, warm-blooded pets shed dander constantly.  As annoying and unsightly as the hair can be, it is pet dander that is the allergen that often triggers allergy and asthma symptoms.

This type of filter doesn’t discriminate against other allergens and will remove things like dust, dust mites, and mold and mildew spores.

You can have the best combination of filters in the world, but if the cleaner can’t run 24 hours a day every day you have very little chance of really making the air better. offers a cleaner that has 2 pre-filters a HEPA filter as well as carbon cloth to give additional protection against particles and odor.

Purifiers That Remove Dander

Dander is produced by all warm-blooded animals.  It is dead skin that is continually being pushed off and replaced by newer skin that is healthier and more able to defend the body against disease and infection.

The issue for anyone who is sensitive to it is the protein that it contains.  There seems to be no rhyme or reason to who is allergic or why.  

But if you are one of the people whose immune as determined that dander is a threat to the body there are steps that you can take to minimize its effect.

Using a purifier is an excellent solution to the problem because the right unit can run 24/7 every day to continually reduce the amount of these light-weight particles in the air.

The fewer there are in the air, the less there are for you to inhale, or to settle on horizontal surfaces only to be sent airborne again with the slightest air current.
Pet dander weighs in at approximately 5 microns.  

A micron is defined as one millionth of a meter.  So it is important that any cleaner that is to be effective be able to remove this size particle and even smaller.

The HEPA or high efficiency particles arresting filter is the best type of filter for removing dander and other more usual allergens that triggers symptoms.

This type of filter is able to remove particles as small as .3 microns with 99.97% efficiency.  This means that for every 10,000 particles it is able to remove 99,997 of them.

And because size (not the pollutant’s source) is the only thing that matters it can also remove pollen, household dust, and dust mites.
