HAPPY HOUSEKEEPING
Posted:8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM

Birds can certainly be a messy lot. It seems as soon as you clean the cage it is a mess again. We recommend a weekly cleaning of the cage and the perches.....this also is a good time to check over the toys to make sure they are clean and pose no safety problems. Daily cleaning of the bottom and daily washing of the water bowls will keep a fresh sanitary living environment.

The respiratory system of a bird is very efficient and sensitive. Birds are extremely sensitive to toxins found in household cleaners so it is important to choose one that is safe to be used around your bud....Be sure to read the labels and warnings on any products you plan on using. There are specific ones we sell here at The Bird Shoppe.

We have POOP-OFF...POOH -RADICATOR and our own KENNELSOL....We sell it in a spray bottle and you can bring the empty bottle back for a refill. There are others on the market but we choose to sell these three types. It is so much easier to have a daily routine to keep your pet healthy. Remember, birds normally do not smell or have smelly droppings. If you find this to be a problem, you need to seek the opinion of a professional. Clean water bowls that have been washed in hot, soapy water can do wonders in keeping your bird
healthy.

I mention this again, because it is so important that the bowls be clean and the water fresh....they soak their feet, soak their food, wash and soak their toys and use it as a potty....please don't let them drink it too...yuck....Our rule of thumb here at The Bird Shoppe is "If you won't drink the water, don't let your bird drink the water either."
