Product Description

A liquid calcium supplement for birds with added vitamin D3 for addition into drinking water or onto moist/soft foods. It has the stamp of approval under the Small Animal Exemption Scheme.

Our calcium supplement Calcivet (CalciBoost in America) stops the most common deficiency in cage and aviary birds, calcium deficiency. Despite the tonnes of cuttlefish bone fed every year, calcium deficiency is still the biggest problem in bird keeping!

A shortage of usable calcium lies at the root of many problems, including:

  • egg laying
  • egg binding
  • weak hens that cannot lay or continue to lay more clutches
  • broken bones in young chicks
  • rickets in baby birds
  • slow moults and french moult
  • feather plucking
  • nervousness
  • aggression
  • twirling and co-ordination problems which may go as far as falling off the perch
  • respiratory problems

Most of the cuttlefish which is supplied to try to raise calcium levels when eaten by the bird goes straight out in the droppings. As with other minerals the difficulty is absorbing it into the bloodstream. So The Birdcare Company developed a super-saturated chelated calcium solution called Cacivet. Calcivet (CalciBoost in America) 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 such an effective calcium source that most of the year you will only need it once or twice a week (definitely twice for African greys and eclectus).

Quality chelated calcium!  No more...

    Since my grey was diagnosed with a calcium deficiency over 15 years ago he has been having the Calcivet supplement. After fitting and being in the hospital for over a week(it was touch and go) he started on it three times a week and now he is on twice a week I have only ever used this product shunning all others and I can say that my bird is in perfect health.
