The Birdcare Company
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:
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...
Calcivet® - Used by top breeders around the world!
Key features: Ideal for breeding and growing birds. Promotes healthy egg production and has proven to be very effective as an emergency product for egg-bound hens. Calcium is involved in brain and nerve function and can improve behavioural problems such as feather plucking or chewing.
It is difficult to give a true review as this is the first time of using the product. However, so far results are encouraging.
Good way of giving birds calcium rather than cuttlefish
Good job keep it up
i use these every year for best breeding and healthy chicks
Calcium is so important, and is usually lacking in sufficient quantity in a caged birds' diet, so supplement is essential.
Always use this product does exactly what it’s supposed to do
I have used this product for many years. As a health care professional I know how important calcium is. Vit D added makes it essential
I find this product very good, but I only use at half measures, I find I don't get so many dead in shell. But it is worth getting.
