Calcivet is a water soluble liquid Calcium and Vitamin D3 supplement for poultry or caged birds in times of emergencies. It can be easily measured for direct dosage, added to drinking water or added to soft foods/mash for easy consumption.
All birds need Vitamin D3 to help maximise calcium absorption in the gut and for the normal development of bones and a boost when laying weak/thin egg shells. It’s also a great product for helping young birds as an essential calcium source for strong bone development.
Calcivet can also be used as an emergency oral calcium supplement for egg bound or critically deficient birds.
Feeding your birds/poultry a seed based diet?
Calcivet is recommended for all birds on seed diets, particularly during the breeding season. Regular use in all seed eating birds will ensure adequate calcium for strong bones, muscle formation and general well being when a diet may be inadequate.
Calcivet will greatly enhance available calcium in the birds diet; additional vitamins and mineral supplements are recommended for birds on seed diets.
