Our delicious Premium Blends are now even better than before. They've always given your bird a species-specific, vitamin-fortified mix of nutritious seeds, nuts, fruits and vegetables, but now they give her much more.
Each colorful formula now contains beneficial "probiotics" (direct fed microbials), which assist digestion and absorption by your bird, so she gets more nutrition from each meal. Also new to the blends is torula yeast, a source of B vitamins and protein. And, you'll no longer find BHT in the ingredients. Plus, each blend still has its fully fortified mix of vitamins, calcium and other minerals, and essential amino acids.

With the exception of the canary/finch blend, each blend now has higher protein and lower fat. Seeds have historically contained higher levels of fat than what is thought healthy for a bird. We decided to create blends that contain less. Canaries and finches, however, have a higher energy requirement, so their formula's fat content has not been reduced. Instead, we've added to it more nutritious canary grass and rapeseed.

ProbioticsWe've also developed a blend especially for your parakeets. No longer combined with the canary/finch blend, parakeet formula is lower in fat to help prevent a common health problem in these birds – obesity.

The cockatiel, parrot and macaw formulas now contain the nutritious legumes soybeans and peas, and they have fewer seeds to hull, which means less waste.

We think your bird will love our improved seed blends. And, when you see the Drs. Foster and Smith logo, you can trust that behind it stands over 25 years of veterinary experience and expertise for the supreme care of your bird.
