Multi-Vitamin Compound for Pigeons and Game Birds
Imported from Germany
NEKTON-T has been especially developed with doves, poultry, pheasants, etc., in mind. It is the result of many years of experience in treating cage birds.
NEKTON-T contains all those substances considered necessary to a dove's health, namely, 13 vitamins, 6 trace elements, calcium as well as 2 amino acids.
Vitamins are the vital organic substances contained in plants that the body needs regularly in small doses. They are essential factors for first-class functioning of the metabolism, for growth, performance and health. Each vitamin has a certain job that only it, and no other vitamin, can do. However in this day and age it is not necessary for us to instruct a dove fancier on the importance of vitamins.
NEKTON-T contains a particularly high percentage of vitamin E and biotin (vitamin H). Vitamin H was discovered comparatively late, but there is no doubt today of its important role in keeping animals healthy. Biotin influences not only growth and viability but also improves skin and plumage. It encourages the growth of leg bones, fertility, laying and the size of broods. The biotin content in the feed of breeding birds may have a considerable all-round effect on the resulting young.
Deficiencies in vitamin E often result in infertile eggs, dead embryos or young to weak to live. A lack of vitamin E can also cause muscular dystrophy, which strikes the whole muscular framework as well as the heart and stomach muscles. Dove fanciers, therefore, are advised to start using NEKTON-T regularly from the very beginning, namely when rearing, and not to wait until the bird is fully-grown.
The calcium in NEKTON-T is important for stronger bones and eggshells and for improved growth, especially in young birds. Enough trace elements and minerals, both essential factors for a bird's well-being,are also to be found in NEKTON-T.
A daily ration of NEKTON-T helps you keep your birds strong and healthy! It is particularly helpful in warding off rickets and promoting growth, easy moulting, fertility, and laying and helps make up for any defects in a poorly balanced diet.
NEKTON-T has particularly proved its worth in cases of illness. A bird needs an increased ration of vitamins while receiving antibiotics, sulphonamides etc., if it is to overcome the negative effect of these chemical compounds on the intestinal bacteria.
Being in powder form, NEKTON-T can be kept much longer than similar liquid preparations. Vitamins tend to destroy each other quickly in liquid form, which, of course, means you can never be sure if the vitamins you are giving as a liquid are still effective. Although vitamins in powder form are much more expensive due to the high costs of making them stable and at the same time easily available to the body, they are longer lasting and more effective in small amounts, making NEKTON-T very economical in use.
NEKTON-T is best given added to the drinking water.
Storage: NEKTON-T should be stored dry and out of sunlight, between 15° and 25°C.
