New and improved version!
There are many reasons why parrots pluck, and a few common causes of feather plucking are
- not receiving enough nutrients in the diet
- chelated calcium deficiency
Our feather plucking rescue pack helps your bird get the nutrients they need that encourage feather growth, regain calcium levels and reduce stress levels associated with feather plucking.
How is calcium linked to my bird plucking?
Calcium is involved in both nerve and muscle function. Calcium deficient birds often show nervous behaviour such as fear, aggression and feather plucking.
Is this rescue pack better than providing my bird a cuttlebone?
Yes! Most of the cuttlebone that is eaten goes straight out in the poop and the calcium is not absorbed into the bloodstream. Calcivet uses a chelated mineral technology similar to the calcium supplied in nature by plants. So, it is easily absorbed and quickly gets to the bones, nerves and muscles where it is needed. It is so effective that for most of the year, your birds will only need Calcivet twice a week.
The NEW feather plucking rescue pack contains:
50ml Calcivet liquid calcium supplement

The high early dose is because calcium deficient birds have low reserves in their bones. Early supplies get sucked up by the bones so the nerves can still be denied adequate quantities. It is the movement of calcium in and out of blood, nerves, muscles and bones that leads to the variable severity of calcium related symptoms
