Birds are incredible 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 expertise and experience to help guide you to the perfect food. All bird's dietary needs are different, and what works best for some won't provide adequate nutrition for others. Therefore, we proudly provide the Palmetto area with the absolute best food for your feathered friends, enhancing 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, several wild bird feeds include 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 meets their calorie requirements, it's not dialed-in nutritionally like domestic bird food.
Domestic bird food is usually a blend of similar seeds, with nutritionally dense pellets added in. 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 prefer larger seed types.
Food for pets will have prebiotic fiber and probiotic ingredients included, along with a variety of various other all-natural seeds and fruits. These strengthen the immune and digestive function of your birds, and more closely imitate their natural diet, which wouldn't typically include 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 boosts 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 consult an expert on what type of food you should be feeding them. Younger birds have different nutritional requirements than older birds, and changing their food requires care and needs to be done slowly, as birds can have picky digestive systems. Gradually include the new food into your bird's dish, replacing more of the old seed with the new food each day to ensure proper adherence to the new diet.
At Pet's Life Naturally, we focus on making sure your bird is provided with the most effective nutrition for their specific needs. Whether you're feeding wild birds in your backyard, or a parakeet in your home, our friendly, experienced team has your back. If you're in the Palmetto area, give us a call at (941) 723-1715 and we can help optimize your bird's feed for a long, healthy life.
So grateful to have this shop here in Palmetto! My dog is usually very anxious getting groomed but he loves coming here and is wagging his tail and happy as can be when I pick him up. Thank you all for taking such great care of Mr. Noodles!
Very friendly and knowledgeable
Excellent local pet store with groomer.
I LIVE this pet store! They have my dogs specialty food here and nowhere else does!
My Persian boy needed a grooming and I was delighted with the result. He and I are both much happier. So nice to have a local caring facility. Excellent service!
