Nekton-Q contains vitamins, with an especially high proportion of vitamin K, for convalescing birds and birds in quarantine. It should also be used as a daily supplement for fig parrots and other birds that have a high vitamin K requirement. Vitamin K is needed for proper blood coagulation, which is hindered when a bird is being treated with antibiotics, sulfonamides, or is stressed. Additionally, Nekton-Q has high amounts of vitamin A to support the epithelial tissues and vitamin E to bolster the immune system and counter balance the hindrance of vitamin E absorption caused by higher amounts of vitamin A. Nekton-Q is soluble in cold water and should be added to a bird’s drinking water. Detailed dosing instructions are included with the product Decades of use in zoos, aviaries and veterinary hospitals demonstrate a track record that is second to none in the pet industry. Nekton supplements set themselves apart from other offerings due to the quality of the raw materials used in their production and, more importantly, the proportion of these materials to one another in each product.
