Topet Aminovit®

Topet Aminovit®

Topet Aminovit® is a dietary supplement for doves and pigeons, cage and aviary birds, parrots, macaws, cockatoos, lories, parrots, pheasant and waterfowl.

Topet Aminovit® is a premium food supplement developed by a collaboration of veterinarians and nutritionists.

The balanced composition of Topet Aminovit ® provides a necessary complement to the regular maintenance feed. Topet Aminovit® contains the following ingredients:

Proteins

In most of the seeds mixtures on the market, the protein content is insufficient. Proteins are the main components of both muscles and the plumage. There are a number of amino acids (proteins are composed of a combination of amino acids) that birds are unable to compose for themselves. These amino acids are called essential amino acids, because they need to be present in the food.

As an example: methionine, cystine, lysine, and tyrosine are a couple of important amino acids involved in the growth of the feathers. Deficiency in food, of these amino acids can cause fragile feathers, bends in the shafts, abnormal shape of the feathers, stress lines (dark coloured streaks).

By using Topet Aminovit® the proper amount of essential amino acids in the food is ensured.  This causes the function and exterior of the feathers to be optimal.

 

Vitamins

Two examples of important vitamins that are present in Topet Aminovit ® and are frequently deficient in commercial feed:

Vitamin D

One part of the vitamin D, used by a bird, provided trough diet. In addition, the bird itself can synthesize  vitamin D under influence of sunlight.

If the diet is deficient in vitamin D, and the bird is kept indoors (without direct sunlight) deficits can easily occur.

One of the main functions of vitamin D is that it facilitates the absorption of calcium from the diet. A deficiency of vitamin D causes a less efficient calcium absorption. A calcium deficiency can be the result, especially if the diet is already low in calcium.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is an antioxidant. It prevents damage to cells by lowering the concentrations of noxious substances.

A combination of too little vitamin E and too little selenium in the diet can affect the muscles. The birds are weak, sometimes they seem paralyzed. In case of decreased effectiveness of the muscles in the gizzard the digestion of food gets compromised.

Calcium

Calcium is important for the composition of bones and eggshells. It also plays a role in controlling the muscles. With deficiencies in the diet, the body will extract the necessary calcium from the bones. This makes them brittle and fractures will occur more frequently.

Iodine

Iodine is required in the synthesis of thyroid hormone. With insufficient iodine in the feed, the thyroid gland will increase in size. Enlargement can cause the trachea (and sometimes the esophagus) to decrease in diameter, causing respiratory distress and difficulty with swallowing of food
