Macaws or cockatoos are among the longest-lived parrot species. And just like us, their healthcare needs change as they age, especially their nutritional requirements. With Senior Bird Nutri-Berries, we’ve created a diet to give your bird all the nutrients he needs during his golden years without having to sacrificing taste or texture. ---------- We added herbs like milk thistle for its anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic effect, as well as dandelion to support bone health and improve liver function. We included ginger — a powerful anti- inflammatory herb — to help ease tendonitis, lower cholesterol and blood pressure and to help prevent blood clots. We also combined the joint- health supplements glucosamine to combat osteoarthritis and chondroitin to ease joint pain and swelling. ---------- Senior Bird Nutri-Berries are also packed with real pieces of age-defying fruits: plums, which provide dietary fiber and are high in Vitamins A, C, K, potassium, fluoride and beta-carotene; cranberries, which are full of antioxidants that strengthen the immune system by flushing out harmful toxins; and dates, which are iron-rich fruits that contain flavonoid polyphenolic antioxidants known as tannins that possess anti-infective, anti-inflammatory and anti-hemorrhagic properties. ---------- Senior Bird Nutri-Berries offer the same balanced nutrition as our Classic and Gourmet Nutri-Berries, plus they are formulated to meet the special needs of mature birds.
