Birds are impressive friends and when properly taken care of can live long healthy lives. Whether you're feeding parakeets and budgies or wild birds outside, we here at Pet's General Store have the expertise and experience to guide you to the perfect food. All bird's nutritional requirements are different, and what works best for some will not offer appropriate nutrition for others. To that end, we proudly serve the OH area to make certain the very best food for your feathered pals, enhancing their health and wellness and extending their lives.
Wild bird vs pet bird food- Wild bird food, depending upon where you live, is usually a mix of different types of seeds, including thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. In addition, several wild bird feeds consist of peanuts and corn, which are chosen 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 meets their calorie requirements, it's not dialed-in nutritionally like domestic bird food. Finally, millet - which is a typical ingredient in both wild and domestic bird seed blends.
Domestic bird food is typically a blend of similar seeds, with added nutritionally thick 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 like larger seed types.
Food for pets will have prebiotic fiber and probiotic ingredients consisted of, in addition to a range of various other natural seeds and fruits. These strengthen the immune and digestive function of your birds, and more carefully imitate their natural diet regimen, which wouldn't normally contain a few types of seeds.
Making certain adequate nutrition- Birds need prebiotics and probiotics to keep their digestive functions working smoothly. Omega-3 fatty acids from nuts and seeds supply fat for their brains and nerves, and enhance the gloss and sparkle of their plumes, while the different vitamins and micronutrients keep them healthy overall.
Additionally, as your bird ages, you will want to get in touch with a specialist on what type of food you must be feeding them. Chicks and younger birds have different dietary requirements than older birds, and altering their food needs care and requires to be done slowly, as birds can have picky digestive systems. Gradually include the new food into your bird's meal, replacing more of the old seed with the new food daily to make sure correct adherence to the new diet plan.

Great local shop. One of the few places with a cat groomer.
This is the best privately owned shop in town. The entire staff is extremely knowledgeable, super friendly and make you feel like family. Also, the groomer here is hands down the best around!
People where kind, informed and honest. They weren't just trying sell they made sure you knew what you were getting. Would definitely be my first recommendation to anyone.
