Lafebers Senior Bird Nutri-berries Parakeet Cockatiel 3 lb
Your parakeet or cockatiel is not getting any younger. Budgies (parakeets) that are 5 years old and cockatiels that are 7 to 10 years old could be considered senior birds. That’s because they have already reached about half their expected life span. It’s great that your bird lived so long, but what can you do to help him live his full life expectancy? Veterinary checkups, exercise, and good husbandry are some important factors, but good nutrition is vital.
Although parakeets and cockatiels don’t look much different when they pass from adult to senior, the needs of their bodies change. Arthritis, cataracts, cardiac disease, vitamin deficiency, and weight gain are some of the age-related effects your senior bird might face. Senior Bird Nutri-Berries Parakeet & Cockatiel Food is formulated to optimize nutrition for your feathered friend.
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 were scientifically designed by leading avian veterinarians and nutritionists to create the best combination of herbs, supplements and nutrients that could be fed daily as a complete diet for many years. They are packed with age-combative herbs like milk thistle, dandelion and ginger, and age-defying fruits like plums, cranberries and dates. Better yet, Senior Bird Nutri-Berries have no artificial flavors or colors. What you see is what you get. When you see a red bit of fruit, it is real cranberry — not something artificially flavored or colored to look like fruit. The same for the herbs – those little flakes are real milk thistle, ginger and dandelion to give your older bird an added health boost.

Is my bird a “senior bird”?
Like people, age-related conditions like arthritis can happen at different ages for different birds. In general, a bird may be considered a senior once it has reached half of its expected lifespan.
