Parrot Supplements

Food supplements for parrot,Throughout his life, the bird will encounter periods of intense metabolic stress where the needs of his body will be increased: the breeding season, low temperatures (especially for birds in outdoor aviaries) and molts. Supplementation of the ration can, therefore, be used by the practitioner to prevent these periods or to correct disorders caused by a deficient ration (therapeutic aim).

During these periods, the bird’s diet may not cover all its needs and the owner may need to supplement the food with vitamins and minerals. Many dietary supplements exist in commerce that the owner can use depending on the ration of the bird:

  • If the bird is fed a majority of seeds: regularly supplement the diet by making cures a week every month at the maximum.
  •  If the ration consists mainly of pellets: do not supplement the bird until during metabolic stress, especially in early spring and autumn (molts).

It is important not to abuse dietary supplements because the excess of certain vitamins or minerals can cause disorders at least as serious as the deficiencies.

In addition, some parrots refuse to touch their bowl or their drinking water if they see their owner add products. In case of supplementation, it is, therefore, advisable to prepare the bowls out of sight of the animal
