Canary vitamins are an essential part of your canary's
If you are feeding a well balanced diet, with a healthy
treat everyday, your canary's need for a vitamin supplement decreases dramatically.
I still recommend giving a multi-vitamin supplement
once a week in addition to a healthy diet...even if your using a
vitamin enriched seed. I say..."Play it safe". Make sure your
canary has everything he needs to sing LOUD and STRONG and LONG.
The most important canary vitamins are...
Vitamin A-->Good for Eye sight. Found
naturally in greens, root vegetables, and cod liver oil.
Vitamin B-complex-->Helps with digestion of
carbohydrates and helps keep the blood healthy. Found in eggs,
vegetables, beans, corn, bananas and cod liver oil.
Vitamin C-->Helps promote a strong immune system
and contributes to wound healing. Found in citrus fruits and green
Vitamin D-->Processes calcium for healthy bones.
Gained through exposure to sunlight.
Vitamin E-->Valuable for canary breeding as it
helps with reproduction. Found in wheat germ.
I prefer to use a water soluble vitamin like Avitron.
It has 13 essential canary vitamins in fruit flavored
powder. Just add to drinking water once or twice a week to help insure optimal
Vitamin enriched water is more susceptible to bacteria growth so make
sure to give fresh water within 24 hours.
