#Charcoal

Keep HARI's coconut derived activated charcoal available to help aid in digestion or to help eliminate toxins. Safe for pet birds, it is especially beneficial for budgies, canaries, finches and other small birds. If heavy metal poisoning, medication overdose, or any toxin ingestion is suspected, activated charcoal can absorb the toxins and help them to be eliminated quickly.

Charcoal is not something that companion birds will eat on a regular basis. Charcoal should be offered inside of the cage in small quantities. It's an excellent digestive aid. Birds will only consume when and if needed. If there is an over-consumption, remove and speak with your avian vet as this could be an indication of a health issue.

Key Features :

  • Provides an excellent aid to proper digestion for all pet birds
  • Helps maintain a balanced pH
  • Neutralizes acids and fights gastric hyper-acidity
  • Great to have on hand for emergencies
  • For all pet birds

#Clay-CalBentonite

HARI Clay-Cal is a readily available supplement that offers pet birds the benefits of natural geophagy (which is the consumption of soil or clay for dietary benefit). Because seed diets are low in calcium, it is advisable to complement your pet bird's diet with a calcium supplement.

Specifically milled for pet birds, this calcium-rich supplement ensures normal development and can help maintain bones, the nervous system, muscle function, blood clotting and cardiac function.

The clay in HARI Clay-Cal also helps as a digestive aid, neutralizing the pH level, helping to bind toxins. Bentonite clay has extremely strong adsorption and absorption properties making it ideal for total body detoxification against toxins, bacteria and other impurities.

Furthermore, as an alkalizing agent, its elevated pH level can play a critical role in the body's ability to remain healthy and resist disease.

Key Features :

  • Rich source of calcium
  • Helps eliminate secondary toxins
  • Creates healthy gut flora
  • Inspired by natural clay licks
  • For all pet birds
  • Size : 575 g (1.27 lb) 
Specifications

Feeding Guide :

As a daily supplement : mix or sprinkle 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of Clay-Cal onto your bird's favorite greens, vegetables and/or fruits. Moist food helps ensure the absorption of the clay and increases the benefits of cationic activity, while at the same ensuring the likelihood that the supplement will be consumed. Alternatively, you can sprinkle or mix up to 2 teaspoons (10 ml) with extruded pellets or seeds.

For passerines - Finches & Canaries, or Budgies, an additional bowl can also be used for free feeding.**

Replenish the supplement at least 3 times per week. Replace when soiled.

As a detox : to provide a detoxifying regime for your bird we recommend the HARI Clay-Cal 21 day Clay Milk regime: With a plastic or non-metallic spoon, mix 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of HARI Clay-Cal with 125 mL (1/2 cup) of water. Let mixture settle overnight. The "mud" will sink to the bottom and a "milky" liquid know as "clay milk" will float to the top. The "clay milk" can be served to birds in a non-metallic drinking bowl for detoxification therapy. Change water daily. Repeat for 21 days. Save the "mud" (see advanced uses below)!

Advance uses for Clay-Cal : Mud poultice for wounds; The"mud" can be applied to bird's skin as a soothing and healing "bandage". Especially beneficial to toes and wing injuries that are typically difficult to bandage. As the "mud" dries, toxins are drawn away from the wound and promotes faster healing. Bonus, if the bird picks at the drying clay - it's okay too!

IMPORTANT NOTE : Clay-Cal is not a substitute for seeking medical attention. Should your bird develop symptoms of illness, consult your Avian Veterinarian. Bentonite clay can interfere with medications prescribed by your veterinarian. Please inquire with your veterinarian in the event of any such prescription.

**Clay-Cal is a soluble clay and not to be confused with traditional grit products that cause crop impaction.

Ingredients :

Bentonite (montmorillonite clay), calcium carbonate, charcoal.

#PrimeVitamin

Prime is a full-spectrum vitamin, mineral, amino acid supplement for birds. 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.

Size : 30 g (1.1 oz).

Feeding Guide :

PREFERRED METHOD (moist food dosage) :

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 on moist food : (enclosed spoon = 1 c.c. )

Small birds (Canary, Cockatiel, Finch, Lovebirds, Parakeet, etc.) ½ 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 ½ c.c. per day

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.

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.

(enclosed spoon = 1 c.c. )
1 c.c. per 3 oz (88 ml) of water.
