With 30 years in the reptile under their belt, ZooMed has become a favorite for zoos, veterinarians, and pet owners across the globe.
Broadening their range from reptiles meant big things for birds and Parrots. As pet owners alike may know, UVB and UVA is extremely important to your bird. UVB allows birds to synthesise Vitamin D3 in their skin or through a process involving the preening gland. Vitamin D3 is essential for proper calcium metabolism, normal growth, maintenance of strong bones, and egg production. Without UVA, birds are deprived of the full colour spectrum they see in nature and are colour blind.
All of the "lack of" concerns have been solved with ZooMed products and indoor lighting solutions. More specifically, Parrot Essentials loves their groundbreaking product called Avian Sun. Avian Sun is the unique product that revolutionized the need for UVA and UVB by creating a compact bulb for indoor use. The Avian Sun bulb can be used in a standard screw socket or the Avian Sun Lamp Stand with a built in reflector to maximize the output.
