Airdog purifier

What about the brand Airdog? I have been using this for several years and it works very well. Is this dangerous for birds/sun conures?


Hi Vincent,

I looked at their site and as I understand it, their purifiers are the ionic type, which should never be used around birds. These produce ozone which is harmful to their very sensitive respiratory systems. Many people are also sensitive to these kind of purifiers and many experts claim they cause lung damage. Below is a link to more information about this, as well as recommendations on what kind to use.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
