NEKTON-Lori is a balanced complete feed for all species of parrot that largely feed off natural liquid food in the form of flower nectar, plant sap and pollen. The composition of NEKTON-Lori 's most high-quality ingredients is strictly oriented toward natural parameters. Furthermore, NEKTON-Lori takes into account the special structure of these birds' digestive tracts, broken down proteins (present as amino acids) and focuses on the direct availability of easy to digest carbohydrates. An optimum mixture is the results of over 100 individual components supplemented by specific fatty acids and enriched with all essential substances (vitamins, trace elements) as well as minerals and major elements. No other feed has to be supplied. No other vitamin compound should be administered whilst using NEKTON-Lori.
Supplementation with pieces of fruit and vegetable is possible without any problems, also so that "gnawing" and activity are not neglected. Nutritional requirements are completely fulfilled by NEKTON-Lori.
As a result of the high protein content as well as the high ambient temperature, it should be noted that the feed becomes acidified after a certain time. This happens faster, the higher the initial microbial content of the equipment and feeders used to prepare the feed. Therefore, it is of great importance that intensive hygiene measures are carried out continuously to reduce the number of germs at the feeding.
Feeding bowls and any equipment or bathing bowls, etc. that come into contact with the food during preparation should be put in NEKTON-Desi-Plus solution during the night after being thoroughly cleaned and can be filled or used again the next morning without being rinsed.
Do not use a mixer or whisk to mix the food, as the vitamins can be mechanically damaged in this way. Only use treated, clean water! Dosage 10g (1 measuring spoon) of NEKTON-Lori in 100 l of lukewarm (25°C) water. Only serve the amount of nutrient solution that your bird ingests in one day.
Small and sensitive species of lorikeet (e.g. plum-faced lorikeet) and butterflies, that only ingest nectar, should be served our special NEKTON-Nektar-Plus. A measuring spoon is attached to each bottle of NEKTON-Lori. 10g of NEKTON-Lori corresponds to one measuring spoon.
Feeding recommendation 10 g NEKTON Lori in 100 ml of warm drinking water (25°C).
Storage: NEKTON-Lori should be stored dry and out of sunlight, between 15° and 25°C.
DO NOT STORE IN THE FRIDGE!!!
