Tropican Alternative Formula provides proper daily nutrition for all Adult and Senior Parrots. It also supports parrots that have different nutritional needs as they age, or parrots that have digestive challenges or have less active lifestyles, or have protein sensitivities. Tropican Alternative formula for parrots is an excellent diet free of corn and soy. In addition to alternative protein sources such as quinoa and peas, Tropican Alternative also contains flavourful ingredients such as sweet potato, ground walnuts, cranberries, pumpkin seeds, maple syrup, and marigold extract. These ingredients offer phytonutrients like lutein for eye health, essential amino acids for muscle repair, and omega fatty acids to nourish the skin and develop vibrant feathers. Since Tropican incorporates vitamins and minerals, a vitamin supplement is not needed.
