Birds are amazing companions, and when properly looked after, can live long & healthy lives. Whether you're feeding parakeets and budgies, or wild birds outside, we have the knowledge and experience to help guide you to the perfect food. All bird's nutritional requirements are different, and what works best for some will not provide adequate nutrition for others. Therefore, we proudly provide the St. Petersburg area with the very best food for your feathered friends, improving their health and extending their lives.

Wild bird vs pet bird food:

Wild bird food, depending on where you live, is usually a combination of different types of seeds, including thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. Additionally, numerous wild bird feeds consist of peanuts and corn, which are preferred by certain species like cardinals and blue jays. Wild bird food is diverse in order to attract as many different species as possible. So while it fulfills their calorie requirements, it's not dialed-in nutritionally like domestic bird food. 

Domestic bird food is generally a blend of similar seeds, with nutritionally dense pellets included. Conures, doves, and pigeons enjoy millet, as do budgies and parakeets. They also enjoy safflower and sunflower seeds when they're hulled, though parrots and hookbills will choose larger seed types.

Food for pets will have prebiotic fiber and probiotic ingredients included, along with a range of various other all-natural seeds and fruits. These boost the immune and digestive function of your birds, and more closely mimic their natural diet, which would not generally contain a few types of seeds.

Ensuring sufficient nutrition:

Birds need prebiotics and probiotics to keep their digestive functions working efficiently. Omega-3 fatty acids from nuts and seeds supply fat for their brains and nerves, and improves the gloss and shine of their feathers, while the various vitamins and micronutrients keep them healthy overall. Additionally, as your bird ages, you will want to get in touch with a professional on what type of food you should be feeding them. Younger birds have different dietary needs than older birds, and changing their food requires care and needs to be done gradually, as birds can have finicky digestive systems. Slowly include the new food into your bird's dish, replacing more of the old seed with the new food each day to guarantee appropriate adherence to the new diet.

At Animal House Pet Center, we focus on ensuring your bird is supplied with the best nutrition for their specific needs. Whether you're feeding wild birds in your yard, or a parakeet in your home, our friendly, professional team has your back.
