Directions for use:

For complete nutrition in your birds Vetafarm diets should make up approximately 80% of the food fed. There are specific Vetafarm diets available to suit most species of bird.

Vetafarm pellets, crumbles, or powder should be fed in a clean, dry dish placed where it cannot be contaminated by droppings, water or cage substrate. If the feed does become contaminated it should be replaced with fresh feed.

When a Vetafarm diet is used as the majority (80%) of the feed no other prepared supplement is required. All the necessary protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals are incorporated into the Vetafarm diet designed for your bird.

How much will your bird eat? - As a guide most cage and aviary birds will consume about 10% of their body weight in dry feed per day. As an example a 100g cockatiel will consume approximately 10g of dry food per day.

Fruits and vegetables - Fruit and vegetables should be fed to your bird (20% of diet) to encourage interaction and provide a variety and stimulation. Chewable items like pine cones, cuttlefish bone, and native tree branches may be provided to help occupy your bird.

Using Vetafarm foods as a supplement - Vetafarm diets can also be used as a supplement to seed based or homemade mixtures. Provide Vetafarm diets as approximately 10-20% of the total diet. Ensure that the Vetafarm product is being consumed. Further supplementation may be required depending on the seed/mixture used.
