Hi Ditto's Mom,

Okay, to help cut down on the dander (white powder) of a Cockatiel also Cockatoos and African Greys they do need to have more showers either in the shower (IF they like that) or with a spray bottle with warm water. I give them really good showers about 2 - 3 times a week but you could give him or her a lighter shower in between. They also sell what's called Cockatoo Bath Spray (the one I use is by Mango Pet Products Inc. and comes in a white 8 ounce spray bottle) which I use on Apache (my Cockatiel) as well as my Cockatoo, Oz. She's a Rose Breasted and really doesn't give off as much dander the way the white ones do. You can also use an Air Purifier that lots of companies put out like Honeywell, Hunter, etc. It does help a lot. Keep the cage clean and you can even lightly spray the bottom to keep the white powder from flying all over. I also have Asthma and Allergies and all of this plus my Allergy Meds and Singulair for my Asthma do help.

Hope this is helpful to you.

Debbie (The Flock's Mom)
