Vetafarm Calcivet

  • $19.99

Calcivet is a liquid calcium and vitamin D3 supplement for addition to water, soft foods or for direct administration by beak in times of emergency. This product is undoubtedly our favorite calcium. It has a nice syrupy consistency, golden color to easily identify treated water, and seamlessly mixes into the drinking water. It also has an appealing taste. Avoid nerves over egg binding. 

Calcium is essential in all birds, regardless of sex. This product has D3 which maximizes calcium absorption in the gut. Supports shell formation and the normal development of bones in young birds. Regular use in all seed-eating birds will ensure adequate calcium for strong bones, muscle formation and general well being.

Offer 6-7 days a month as maintenance, and if for a breeding pair, offer again upon setting them up until the hen has completed laying. Then offer again for the first 10 days upon hatching to prevent splay legs and help those babies grow strong skeletal systems. 

Although it is pricey because it is imported from Australia, it is the gold standard in liquid calcium.
