Poly Aid Plus
Powdered first aid supplement for sick and injured birds and animals.
Recommended for: Use as a first aid supplement for sick, injured or stressed birds and small animals that are not eating voluntarily.
Can be used with: Poly Aid Plus is a welcome addition to a bird keeper’s first aid kit, along with Spark Liquid and Avian Crittacare.
Key features: Poly-Aid Plus is a sustained release carbohydrate and protein supplement with vitamins and electrolytes and a 7-strain Probiotic® for sick or stressed birds and small animals. It provides a high energy, high protein supplement that is readily absorbed and utilised, allowing birds to fight the disease or trauma that put them in the hospital cage initially. Poly-Aid Plus does not cure disease - it simply gives the birds some energy to fight for themselves. Can be administered directly via medication needle or added to food sources for animals eating voluntarily but require additional dietary support to make a stronger recovery.
Powdered broad spectrum antibiotic for use in water or added to food.
Recommended for: All birds as a front line antibiotic where a definite diagnosis is difficult.
Also useful as a prevention for Psittacosis.
Can be used with: Triple C should not be mixed in water with any other products. The effectiveness of Triple C will be reduced if calcium supplements are present in a bird’s diet, discontinue the use of calcium during antibiotic treatment. After a course of Triple C, Probotic should be administered to re-establish gut flora.
Key features: Broad Spectrum antibiotic effective against E. coli (Enteritis), Mycoplasma (Chronic Respiratory Disease) and Chlamydia (Psittacosis). Ideal for use as a front line antibiotic when birds become ill but a sure diagnosis is not possible. Effective when administered in either food or water. Can be used as prevention for Psittacosis once per year for 45 days.
