Avicalm is a magnesium based calming solution based on a unique form of magnesium developed and used in human pschychiatric and cardiac health.
The calming properties of magnesium are well documented and the combination with aspartic acid and hydrochloric acid forms a unique magnesium aspartate trihydrochloride complex that is more effective in the the system than any other magnesium salt. Furthermore its pH allows gentle digestion and assimilation.
At times of stress the birds magnesium reserves can be depleted. Magnesium is essential in nerve signal transmission and any depletion can lead to deterioration of mental and physical behaviour
Application of Avicalm at times of increased stress, when birds are more susceptible to disease, self mutilation, accidental damage, and aggressive behaviour, can reduce mortality and promote healthy growth.
Avicalm is a water based solution that can be added to drinking water. It should be refreshed daily.
As a general guide it is recommended that Avicalm is diluted at 0.5ml per 100ml of drinking water for chicks and for long term feeding (more than 5 days) of adults and at 1ml per litre of drinking water for short duration high stress periods (less than 5 days) in juvenile and adult birds.
The amount of concentrated Avicalm required per bird is weight dependant and is in
the range of 0.05ml-
Dilution levels do not need to be exact and so a normal margin of error as experienced
in field conditions is acceptable. Avicalm takes effect within 1-
