The Story of
If you're reading this, birds are probably a significant part of your life. And one thing everyone knows is that birds are extremely fragile. When one of our feathered friends is injured or unwell we are often at a loss at to what to do and more often than not our efforts appear to only worsen the birds condition and we are helpless to do anything about it.
Here's a scenario you may be familiar with, which plays out on poultry and/or pet bird forums daily.
Someone asks for help with a beloved egg-producing pullet that's looking unwell. Days have passed with the hen's condition deteriorating. Our bird lover considers feasible options. A trip to the veterinarian is not affordable. The best solution for our bird lover is to return her chicken to health quickly and affordably. Common sense tells her that a call for assistance in cyberspace is the most direct route to meet that objective. This problem is played out all around the world.
Photographs or short videos of the afflicted hen are posted by our concerned bird lover on a backyard chicken, aviculture or pet bird forum. A dozen replies flood in and every comment is encouraging and empathetic. Half of these well-intentioned chicken enthusiasts make suggestions to treat the bird with a specific antibiotic, regardless of whether or not any antibiotic is helpful in treating the unidentified illness of that particular bird. The majority of comments will suggest dosing with a highly toxic chemical treatment to rid the bird of parasites, regardless of whether that particular bird has any.
There isn't a single person writing online prescriptions who has the data and/or qualification to suggest the use of any antibiotic. According to many health scientists antibiotic resistant bacteria are one of the most serious problems facing humanity and this is attributed mostly to misuse of antibiotics in livestock husbandry. Parasites are also becoming immune to treatments and what is worse many people are unaware of the negative effects these treatments can have within the bird's body.
A zookeeper with the task of hand rearing some extremely rare fruit pigeons is frustrated with digestive problems that prevents her wards from fledging successfully. The very survival of captive populations of this endangered species is put at risk with the failure to wean the nestlings successfully. Time is of the essence and no solution is at hand in large part because special nutrients contained in fruits of the tropical rainforests are absent from the fruit the zoo can find consistently and afford.
In a different instance a boy is worried about his pet mynah bird. It was mangled by the family's cat and has remained in a state of perpetual anxiety for days. It isn't eating and there's a tear in its skin. Vitamins in the water aren't having any effect and mynah bird appears to have lost its appetite. The family vet doesn't know anything about birds and no one online seems to have a solution that doesn't require more money than that boy can raise in time to help his mynah bird in the moment.
These are common examples of the sorts of requests for assistance I have received over the last 30 years of my specialization maintaining birds in captivity, both wild and domestic. I receive dozens of them a week and for years I've suggested natural remedies that are available at health food stores. But there are more than one ingredient to find and handling the bird for the length of time required to administer the contents of soft gel cap of liquid isn't doing anything but adding undue stress on the bird. I decided to create a ready solution for all of these problems in one effective product that anyone in the world can use to help restore their birds to health.
I went to a world-renowned animal nutritionist who collaborated with me in the creation of an easy-to-use paste that combines concentrated amounts of healthful all natural ingredients
in an emulsion that goes right to work. It absorbs through mucus membranes rather than relying on its passing through the digestive process. We partnered with a leader in veterinary medicine who has three
decades of expertise. We found a professional manufacturer that specializes in making and packaging products like ours. And we discovered a web designer who has helped us create a website that is
informative about bird health as well as promotes our Internet-based business that can ship product all over the world, to bird people in every country.
