Using enclosed 1 cc scoop. .5 cc - Canary, Cockatiel, Finch, Lovebirds, Parakeets and other small birds. 1 cc - Medium Parrots - Goffin, Lory, Mini Macaws. 1.5 cc - African Grey, Amazon, Cocaktoo and Large Parrots.
PREFERRED METHOD (moist food dosage) :
Mix or sprinkle recommended dose over the bird's favorite greens, vegetables and/or fruit. Do not mix supplement in standard seed mix as most will settle to food dish bottom or the powder may coat the seeds and be removed with empty seed hulls. By using the bird's favorite moist foods to absorb the powder, smaller and more accurate dosages can be used since total consumption of the treated food is achieved.
Daily Dosage on moist food : (enclosed spoon = 1 c.c. )
Small birds (Canary, Cockatiel, Finch, Lovebirds, Parakeet, etc.) ½ c.c. per day.
Medium birds (Goffin, Lory, Miniature Macaw, Mynah, Pionus, Small Amazon, Softbills, Timneh, etc.) 1 c.c. per day.
Larger birds (African Grey, Amazon, Cockatoo, Macaw, Toucan, etc.) 1 ½ c.c. per day
Alternate method (drinking water dosage) :
Since small bird requirements per unit body weight are higher than larger birds, identical dosage can be used for all companion birds. Drinking water should be given fresh daily, and any leftover solution from earlier administration should be discarded. Add desired dose to clean drinking cup or mixing container. Add water and mix well. The supplement will dissolve from a milky suspension to a clearer yellow in a few minutes. A few particles may still float or settle harmlessly with no effect.
Note : PRIME contains high levels of calcium, and essential amino acids. It is therefore not 100% water soluble Also, the sulphur molecule from the amino acids will be released by the beneficial bacteria after 6 hours of being in solution. Under warm climate conditions you may wish to change the water twice daily to minimize any associated (harmless) odor.
Daily Dosage : (enclosed spoon = 1 c.c. ) 1 c.c. per 3 oz (88 ml) of water.
