The animal body is like a machine in that it needs "parts", catalysts and "fuel" if it is to function properly. These substances are called nutrients and most of them must be supplied by the diet.
Vitamins belong to these vital nutritive substances. Some are essential for the transfer of energy while some are vital for the regulation of the protein, carbohydrate and fat metabolisms. Without vitamins, and minerals, the body is unable to break down the food substances and turn them into structural units and/or energy. Because animals can synthesise only a few vitamins and no minerals they must form a permanent part of the dietary intake. According to reports from veterinarians, however, up to 90% of the ailments they treat in birds are due to an incorrect and inadequate diet. In the majority of cases the cause is a deficiency in the active substances - vitamins, macro and trace elements, especially in times of stress when a bird's needs can fluctuate considerably.
At times like these the supply of vitamins is often either insufficient or not available to the body in full, namely, a hypovitaminosis. A hypovitaminosis is not easily recognised at first, but any long-term deficiency will lead to considerable damage to a bird's health and finally to its death.
NEKTON-S provides birds owners with a food supplement especially formulated to suit these needs. Its well-balanced composition of 13 vitamins, 18 free amino acids in the natural L form and minerals will help prevent deficiency diseases and increase the nutritional value of the diet. and it increases a bird's resistance to disease and the pressures of moult, shows, acclimation, etc., as well as improving its productivity, especially during breeding.
Give daily to ensure your bird's good health. Simply add to soft food or bird's drinking water. Because of the all-round beneficial effect of NEKTON-S, aviculturists, bird parks and zoological gardens have chosen it as a daily supplement for their birds for years with success.
NEKTON-S is a pet food supplement formulated to provide cage birds with the proper supply of the vitamins, mineral elements, and amino acids required daily to prevent deficiencies arising.

It strengthens body resistance, which helps a bird withstand pressure and reduces susceptibility to infection and diseases.
NEKTON-S improves a bird‘s general health and promotes proper functioning of all systems, particularly in breedingThere are a number of nutritive substances that must permanently form part of the dietary intake if an animal is to receive the correct nutrition. The lack of any one of these vital ingredients can have serious consequences for an animal‘s health and possibly lead to its death.
Vitamins belong to these essential nutritional components. They are parts of enzyme systems that catalyse and regulate the metabolisms of the various nutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, fats) in the bird‘s organism, thus ensuring the smooth functioning of the bird‘s body.
A well-balanced diet covering all the nutritional requirements in number and quantity is particularly important for birds as they have a comparatively high metabolic turnover. According to reports from veterinarians, however, up to 90% of the ailments they treat in birds are due to an incorrect and inadequate diet, whereby the cause is not so much a lack of nutrients as a deficiency in the active substances vitamins, macro and trace elements.
Not only do a bird‘s needs in nutrients fluctuate but so do the requirements in active substances, particularly in times of stress. The moult, breeding, re-caging, new companions, shows, illness and medical treatment with antibiotics and sulphonamides are all situations in which the body needs greater support to help the organism continue to function properly. At times like these, however, the supply of vitamins is often either insufficient or not available to the body in full, namely, a hypovitaminosis. A hypovitaminosis is not easily recognised at first, but plumage problems during the moult and impaired fertility primarily result from these deficiencies. Any long-term deficiency will lead to considerable damage to a bird‘s health and finally to its death.
A caring bird owner will therefore automatically ensure that his pet is given a good supply of these active substances to maintain its good health and performance as well as increase its resistance to illness and disease.
NEKTON-S provides birds owners with a food supplement especially formulated to suit these needs. Its well-balanced composition of vitamins, amino acids and minerals will help prevent deficiency diseases, complement the nutrients, improve their availability and utilisation and thus increase the nutritional value of the diet.while it increases a bird‘s resistance to disease and improves its productivity, especially during breeding.Because of the all-round beneficial effect of NEKTON-S, aviculturists, bird parks and zoological gardens have chosen it as a daily supplement for their birds for years with success.
