Prime is a full-spectrum parrot vitamins, mineral amino acid supplement.
It is the only bird food supplement specifically formulated for seed, vegetable and fruit-based diets. Prime provides 14 vitamins and 9 minerals, which are often lacking in most bird diets, and excels above all other supplements in providing all companion bird species with their nutritional requirements. The ultra-fine, highly palatable powder penetrates soft foods for accurate dosage administration and does not cake over time.
Prime’s carefully-selected ingredients meet the specific requirements of birds and provide many health benefits. For example, it contains extra vitamin C and E for increased breeding and antioxidant activity. It has lysine and methionine amino acids to improve diet protein quality. It delivers a unique combination of enzymes and acidifiers to improve digestion. It provides micro-encapsulated beneficial bacteria (probiotics) that help keep birds in top condition. And it significantly improves the growth of handfed babies.
For accurate dosage administration, sprinkle Prime over your bird's favourite fruits and vegetables. Prime is the sure way to provide total nutrition for companion birds.
PREFERRED METHOD (soft food): Mix or sprinkle recommended dose over the bird's favorite greens, vegetables and/or fruit. Do not mix supplement in standard seed mix as most will settle to food dish bottom or the powder may coat the seeds and be removed with empty seed hulls. By using the bird's favorite moist foods to absorb the powder, smaller and more accurate dosages can be used since total consumption of the treated food is achieved.
DAILY DOSAGE: Small birds (Canary, Cockatiel, Finch, Lovebirds, Parakeet, etc.) 1/2 c.c. per day, Medium birds (Goffin, Lory, Miniature Macaw, Mynah, Pionus, Small Amazon, Softbills, Timneh, etc.) 1 c.c. per day, Larger birds (African Grey, Amazon, Cockatoo, Macaw, Toucan, etc.) 1 1/2 c.c. = 1 1/2 spoonfuls of the enclosed spoon with moist food.
ALTERNATE METHOD: (drinking water dosage)
Since small bird requirements per unit body weight are higher than larger birds, identical dosage can be used for all companion birds. Drinking water should be given fresh daily, and any leftover solution from earlier administration should be discarded. Add desired dose to clean drinking cup or mixing container. Add water and mix well. The supplement will dissolve from a milky suspension to a clearer yellow in a few minutes. A few particles may still float or settle harmlessly with no effect.
1 c.c. per 3 oz of water. NOTE:PRIME contains high levels of calcium, and essential amino acids. It is therefore not 100% water soluble. Also, the sulphur molecule from the amino acids will be released by the beneficial bacteria after 6 hours of being in solution. Under warm climate conditions you may wish to change the water twice daily to minimize any associated (harmless) odor.
