GUIDELINES FOR USE
To improve digestion in any bird under any condition. Uses can also include, birds with chronic pancreatitis, malabsorption syndrome, proventricular dilation, neonates with slow emptying of the digestive system, geriatric birds, or birds under stress of illness. May be beneficial in Day 1-7 neonates being hand-fed. Also indicated in chronically ill or geriatric birds that seem to not be getting all the benefits from their food and for sick birds under stress of illness.
Dose and Administration:
Add a pinch of Avian Enzyme over hand-raising formula and allow to stand after stirring to achieve desired consistency. If still too thick, add more Avian Enzyme. Do not add more water than called for in hand feeding formula directions. Add to tube-feeding formula for sick birds, one pinch per feeding mixed in formula. Add to dry food for recovering birds, a pinch (1/16 tsp) per meal.
Ingredients: Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast cultured on corn, Wheat, Rye, Malt, corn syrup, and molasses.
Crude protein: not less than 12%
Crude fat: not less than 3%
Crude fiber: not more than 7%oisture (max.) 10%.
Caution: The correct feeding technique must be used in order to prevent injury to the bird or inhalation of the formula that could result in pneumonia or death.
â€¢ From day 1 for pionus, African greys, Amazons, cockatoos, conures and macaws.
â€¢ From day 7 for other parrots.
â€¢ From day 21 for cockatiels.
â€¢ Step 1: Gently feel the crop to determine that it is almost empty before feeding.
â€¢ Step 2: Mix fresh: Juvenile Hand-Feeding Formula and bottled â€œdrinking waterâ€ heated to approximately 103Â°F (39Â°C). Follow proportion of formula to water as directed by your avian veterinarian for the age of your bird. Do not microwave. Allow to cool to lukewarm. Chicks with their eyes opened should be fed 3-4 times daily, and birds with feathers emerging, 2-3 times daily.
â€¢ Step 3: Feeding with an irrigation syringe is probably the most universally successful technique. As one faces the bird, position the syringe to enter the oral cavity from the left side of the birdâ€™s beak and direct it toward the right side of the birdâ€™s neck. Deposit the food into the birdâ€™s mouth and, as it swallows, the normal feeding response closes off the trachea and prevents aspiration of the formula into the lungs.
â€¢ Step 4: Feed the bird until the crop is full but not overstuffed, and clean the excess formula from the birdâ€™s beak, feathers and enclosure.
â€¢ One- to seven-day-old birds and birds with slow crop-emptying may benefit from adding a pinch of HBDâ€™s Avian Enzyme to the Formula just prior to feeding.
â€¢ To aid weaning after 21 days of age, add 1 Tbs finely chopped High Potency Formula or finely chopped organic nuts to 1 cup of Formula or introduce dry High Potency Formula in a separate bowl.
