NEKTON-Biotin supports a smooth molting process and feather regeneration. NEKTON-Biotin contains all essential vitamins, amino acids, minerals, trace elements and 200,000 µg biotin/kg. NEKTON-Biotin gives birds a smooth and shiny plumage. The majority of plumage damage that occurs when keeping birds can be exclusively attributed to poor nutrition. Because the plumage consists of substance that is high in protein, a particularly rich and balanced protein diet for the bird is a prerequisite for forming an immaculate plumage. A daily diet must contain sufficient vitamins, minerals and trace elements for a functioning metabolism. Majority of animal losses that occur during the molting period is based on a lack of or unbalanced protein intake and/or an insufficient supply of vitamins and minerals. The unfavorable ratio of amino acids in most plant-based feed has been explicitly considered and balanced with regard to the composition of NEKTON-Biotin.
No other vitamin compound should be administered whilst using NEKTON-Biotin. NEKTON-Biotin is soluble in cold water and can be administered easily via drinking water or soft feed.
The protein ingested with the feed is dispersed in the bird’s gastrointestinal tract in the individual bases of protein (amino acids) and in turn builds up these naturally produced bases of protein, which it needs for plumage development.
Plumage development when nestling and plumage regeneration in molting birds are very complex processes and are linked with particularly high stress on the animal’s entire body.
In cases of heavily damaged plumage, double, or even triple the dosage of NEKTON-Biotin can be given to begin with, until the first signs of plumage regeneration are visible. After that, the normal dosage will suffice until plumage regeneration is complete.
A green measuring spoon is attached to every bottle of NEKTON-Biotin.
Please note that NEKTON-Biotin should not be administered during breeding, as it can cause disturbances in the incubation process.
