To maintain the health and well-being of birds, proper care is required. Small birds, such as canaries, parakeets and exotic birds, may also benefit from taking vitamin supplements to fill gaps in their diet or to improve their physical health.

Some essential vitamins and supplements for small birds are:

  • Vitamin A: Vitamin A is essential for eye health, immune system function and skin health.
  • Vitamin D: Vitamin D is important for proper calcium and phosphorus absorption, which helps maintain healthy bones and feathers.
  • Vitamin E: Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects cells from oxidative damage and may help in disease prevention.
  • Vitamin B-complex: B vitamins are important for the metabolism and nervous system of birds.
  • Calcium: Calcium is essential for maintaining bone health and proper egg formation in breeding birds.
  • Iodine: Iodine is essential for the proper functioning of the thyroid gland in birds.
