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...

  1. Calcivet 4 Star Review

    (Submitted on 13th May 2019)

    Used this product since my 16 year old black headed caiuqe was young.
    It was recommended by a breeder.
    I give 4 drops in the fruit bowel 4times a week then 4 day without then 4 with daily essentials and four without
    As I only have one small parrot the bottle could be a bit smaller and you need to have a look at the quality of the pin in the bottle top it snapped of after been used twice.

  3. Good Nutrition Essential 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 4th Mar 2019)

    I have used Calcivet for years. I give 3 days a week in the run up to the breeding season. I use both types my Amazon's wash the powder off their walnuts and almonds. My African Grays are much better and not fitting and dying. I've lost to many hens to lack of calcium

  4. Calming 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 3rd Aug 2018)

    I was given 3 canaries that were clearly not well. (I was furious toward the people who claimed to be breeders handing a relative such ill birds, but glad they are being looked after by me now.) They looked the usual ill, and I'm treating them for airsac mites, worms and bacterial problems, using other products from TBCC to strengthen their immune systems and gut systems, and for moulting. Guardian Angel was my first port of call. Amazing product! There is a marked difference in their mood and their feathers since using Calcivet. Noticable from the day after the first use. I'm very grateful!

  6. Egg shell super boost 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 7th May 2018)

    After a few doses of this product the egg shells of the one hen producing shells so weak you often couldn’t pick up the egg without breaking it were performing as egg shells should!

    (Submitted on 28th Jul 2017)

    I bought this for my budgie who was calcium deficienct, my budgie was really poorly and found it hard to stand on a perch at times. Calcivet has really done an amazing job and my budgie is now nearly fully recovered.

    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.
