Manufactured by The Birdcare Company (Winner of Best Global Avian Health Supplier - UK)
Is Calcivet 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.
Why do birds need calcium?
Calcium is an essential mineral for both nerve and muscle function. Did you know that 98% of pet birds were getting less than the recommended levels of calcium in their diet?
Calcium deficiency is the root of many problems such as:
- Showing nervous behaviour such as fear and aggression
- Feather plucking
- Poor feather quality
- Respiratory problems
- Taking a long time to complete a molt
- Co-ordination problems (e.g. falling off the perch)
- Difficulty in laying eggs
- Laying eggs with soft shells
- Broken bones in young chicks
Calcivet active ingredients: Magnesium, Vitamin D3, Calcium
Add 15 drops per 100ml of drinking water (15 drops per 200ml in hard water areas). Give twice a week.
For Singapore parronts, 15 drops per 100ml of drinking water is sufficient as Singapore is not a hard water area.
Safety and storage notes
Replace with clean drinking water everyday. Do not allow birds to drink for more than 1 day as bacteria, algae and biofilm grow quickly in water, especially with added supplements in water. Feeder bowls have to be scrubbed thoroughly at least once daily with dish-washing detergent and sponge with the same level of hygiene when cleaning human cutlery.
