You know that cute little back-and-forth walkabout your parakeet does when he’s truly excited about a favorite food? Classic Nutri-Berries, with its wholesome seeds, pellets, and grains, has that affect on birds.
Classic Nutri-Berries combine fresh ingredients, hulled seeds and essential vitamins and minerals rolled together to offer all the nutrition of pellets, plus all the benefits and fun of foraging. Instead of grinding down the ingredients into a pelleted form, the ingredients in Classic Nutri-Berries are left mostly whole to give your bird the flavors and textures pelleted diets lack. And, unlike vitamin- and mineral-fortified seed mixes that lose their health benefits once the bird cracks open the seed, Nutri-Berries are made with hulled seeds and grains; each berry is then coated with essential vitamins and minerals to ensure that your bird receives balanced nutrition in each bite.
They use chelated minerals for better absorption, stabilized vitamins for better longevity, and they naturally preserve and flavor their foods. You can offer Classic Nutri-Berries as a main diet or as a favorite treat for your cockatiel, quaker parrot, lovebird or parakeet. Drop them in your bird’s bowl, or crumble them up and sprinkle them in your bird’s foraging area.
A family story dedicated to nutrition and health
The company was founded by Dr. Lafeber Sr.’s desire to provide pet birds with a high-quality, nutritiously-balanced diet.
As he treated hundreds of pet birds over a period of years, a common problem kept appearing: most birds were dying of malnutrition. To save these birds that he cared for so much, he created the first commercial bird food pellet in his veterinary clinic in the early 1970s. His son, Dr. Ted Lafeber, III, joined as his business partner and develops the recipes today with top veterinarians and nutritionists.
Their mission to this day revolves around the simple premise Dr. Lafeber established many years ago: caring & working for the health of animals.
