Chick Stories

A Blue and Gold baby that was supposed to die----I have to write you with this story, as a person always hears about these amazing stories and when it finally hits home it's truly amazing! I just started breeding birds (macaws) and my very first chick needs to be assisted in hatching (lucky me) and so I do this very intense procedure (successfully, I might add).  Well, needless to say it doesn't end there, now we have an unabsorbed yolk sac!! Well I take this little guy to the vet as I knew nothing about unabsorbed yolk sacs. The Vet did what he felt could be done and told me that there was nothing else that could be done as he had a serious bacterial infection and he was to young for antibiotics, that he did not expect him to live but a day or two! 

So heart broken I go home with my poor helpless little blue & gold and when I got home I thought to myself, what about all those wonderful stories I read about from Avian Medicine Chest™?  So I started the little guy on Systemajuv™. I put it in every feeding and I am so happy to report that he is " 3 weeks old" and he is getting bigger every day, thanks to your product! So much for the Vets who "THINK" they know everything!  I paid the vet almost $100.00 to tell me there is nothing  that can be done and $18.00 for a bottle of wonder stuff that saved my babies life!  I also took my mini macaw to the vet for a check up (she was a new purchase) and the vet told me she had a major respiratory infection and she needed to start these long treatments, well I'm sure you know what I'm going to tell you.  

Yes I put her on Systemajuv™ for 3 weeks and she is totally healthy now! The vet called me one day to see what I was going to do about treatment for Sally and I told him she was fine and told him how I did it, needless to say he wasn't very interested in what I had to say. I am so happy  that I came across your web site!  Thanks for all your newsletters, I reread them often. Thanks again.  Roxanne McL. from St. Louis, Mo.

Saving Chicks---Patrick M. from Suffield, Ct. started using ProBac Chick, Systemajuv, Elimasac, Trace Minerals, and Super Vita chick four years ago.  He used to raise 2 out of 20 to 25 babies which was discouraging after so much effort and work.  Now after using the above products, 95%-98% of his chicks live and thrive.  Pat says to tell everyone and to use the Fertility Enhancer, trace minerals and ProBac Adult with the parents too.  These make all the difference in his aviary he says. 

Trouble with a baby weaning?-----CC Babin. from Northern Florida solved her love bird's not wanting to wean problem by sprinkling Botanical Bird Food on their millet and egg food.  They started munching right away and were weaned in three days.    Botanical Bird Food is excellent whenever a bird is not eating.  They seem to know the herbs and amino acids in there are just what they need.  

Yolk Sac Poisoning/Difficult Hatching-----I JUST WANTED TO SAY I HAD A BABY THAT HATCHED UPSIDE DOWN AND WAS VERY WEAK ALSO LOOKED LIKE IT HAD EGG SAC POISON.  THIS BABY WAS VERY PALE FOR TWO DAYS. I DIDN'T HOLD ANY HOPE FOR IT, OF COURSE I WAS WISHING IT WOULD PULL THROUGH. FED IT AROUND THE CLOCK AND GAVE IT THE SYSTEMAJUV ALSO AND I REALLY BELIEVE THAT IS WHAT SAVED THIS BABY. IT IS NOW ON FORMULA AND IS DOING GREAT.... I COULD NOT BELIEVE THE CHANGE IN THIS BABY.......AND WANTED TO SAY THANKS,  PAULINE M., ODUM,GA.

About Crop Problems-----Zoraya from Miami, Florida had two baby cockatiels that had a sour crop and were very droopy. "I gave them Systemajuv™ directly in their mouths, on their backs and in their hand feeding formula.  Almost immediately the crop started to move and after four days, they were back to health.  One was very skinny and after four days he was no longer skinny and in fact catching up with his clutch mates.  I just wanted to say, from the bottom of our hearts we thank you"..

About Baby Birds, Hi, my name is Maggie and I just wanted to let you know that my husband and I use Systemajuv and Elimasac when
we have a baby with a slow crop.  It works wonders and I swear by it.  I wouldn't be without it. Maggie G. and Sweety Bird (rescue tiel)

Last April, the college where I work accidentally received 75 day-old baby chicks.  I took 15, and a colleague took the rest.  I mixed the Pro-Bac into their water every day for ten days (I did this because shipping is very stressful).  Well, I didn't lose any chicks, but my colleague lost several before I gave him some of my Pro-Bac.  He said it did the trick!  Neither of us are plagued by the nasty bacteria that infect the local farm-raised hens.    I'll be buying more Pro-Bac in a few months because I'm getting low.    Thank you,  Jana R.

Thanks for your very quick response sending me the ProBac Chick™ and Elimasac™.  The worst chick died, but all the rest have snapped out of whatever was causing them to die.   I could see an improvement in a matter of two hours.  How does this work so darn fast and good?!! Don’t care to know all the answers, just wanted to see the results I am getting.  Thank you so very very much.  Your chick products are wonderful.
Trudy M., Fort Myers, Florida

I'm getting a little excited here.  Don’t want to get my hopes up too soon, but I have already seen a noticeable improvement in my hand feed babies.  I started my chicks on this three days after hatch and so far there are no crop problems.   This stuff is truly amazing after what I have been through.  No diarrhea either.  This is wonderful!  Thank you for having these wonderful products.
Marilyn M., Indiantown, Florida

Your chick products are really really great.  I have never had healthier and more robust chicks ever since before using the ProBac Chick™ and Super Vita Chick™.   They wean earlier at a higher weight and are generally the healthiest chicks I have ever seen.  Thanks so much for these great products.
Linda D., Omaha, Nebraska 

Parasites & BabiesI use the Worm-Out™ for everything---in the nest boxes, in their feed, on their backs.  It gets rid of all those pesky feather mites and spiders I seem to find often in my bird room.   Other people use that awful sevin in the nest boxes.  Don’t they know how horrible it is for the babies and parents too?  Thank you for bringing the natural way to my attention, it really works well and I no longer am afraid to worm my birds.

Bacteria Problems

I bought a BIG bottle of the Pro-Bac Adult a few years ago and I can't tell you how wonderful it is.  All my birds get a sprinkle on their soft food once a week.  I add it to the egg food I give my breeders, and mix it into my hand-feeding formula.  Since I began using the product, I haven't had any problems with sick, slow-cropped chicks.  All my babies are "fat and sassy" and their parents are just beautiful. Jana R. 

 About Watery Stools:  I started my "precious" cockatiel on your ProBac Adult and Systemajuv the day it arrived.  It was like a "miracle" - within 24 hours his droppings were no longer like water!!   I think your products are really amazing!  I just can't thank you enough.  In the past year, I have spent over $500 on treatments and nothing helped until now.  Thank you so much.  Jane C., Mt. Laurel, N.J.

First of all, I want to thank you so very much.  Peanut was constantly coming up with E Coli.  We’d use Baytril and it would clear up. Well, it didn’t last long and she would be sick again.  I wish I could find the words to thank you.   She’s eating and playing and doing the bird thing--like screaming.  We don’t encourage that (screaming) but we silently say Yes!!! because she feels good enough to be just a little bit naughty.  She’s on the ProBac™, and the Systemajuv™ and she’s going to stay on it.  Keep up the good work and thanks.
Patti & Loren W. , North Branch, Minn.

Thank you for the recent VIP rush order and info you’ve sent.  I’m a true believer in your ProBac™.   I raise Parrotlets and the most common ailment with these critters is bacterial infections.  They just croak on you, usually 1st two months of their life within an hour, no previous signals.  I’ve had at least 3 necropsies done on them always turned up a weak liver over toxined by bacteria that their immune system couldn’t handle yet.  So once my mentor (your customer) turned me on to the ProBac™ I haven’t lost a baby since.  Thanks!!!
Mike M., Grand Rapids, Mi.

This is a letter to thank your staff for being patient and helpful to me when I called regarding my two year old budgie.  My vet had prescribed Baytril and afterwards Nystatin for my Budgie’s yeast infection.  After talking with your staff, she suggested instead to use ProBac™ and Systemajuv™ and in two weeks my bird would be all right.  Was she ever right!!!!!!!  I had my bird’s dropping re-tested which came out perfect! (Without drugs).  Thanks again for your caring staff member who reassured me on the phone that my “Mister” would be fine.  He’s back to his usual busy curious, animated and loving self.  I’ll continue these products once or twice a week to maintain his wellness.
Vida H., New York, NY

No good bird lover should be without your wonderful natural products!  The ProBac™ and Systemajuv™ solve all those pesky bacterial problems.
Margie A., Pompano Beach, Florida

The ProBac Adult™ and Systemajuv™ are by far the best products I have ever treated a bird with.  They really take care of every problem I have had in the past two years.  Thank you for having them available to us serious bird lovers.
Regina McC., Hanson, Ma.

Your Systemajuv™ and ProBac Adult™ are the finest products we and our customers have discovered.  They are so good and go such a long way, it is truly amazing!  We are glad you are here at last.  Thank you so much for all your personal assistance too.
Ginger, Mini Critters, Sioux Falls, South Dakota

Tumor Case Studies

Just wanted to let you know that our cockatiel Sunny is doing very well.  His neck tumor seems to have totally disappeared from under his "cockatiel fluff" . He has been on the Tumor Aid and Tumor Supplement F since March 16th., and has taken about 2/3 of the bottles.  I want to continue with the meds for awhile, even though he seems cured.  He is very "foxy" for a 22 year old!   Has gone back to whistling and answering my whistles! Thanks again for great products for our bird pals.   Pat L.,  Trenton, IL  (Pat's note was written on May 29).

On March 4th, I contacted you and asked for help concerning a xanthoma tumor on my African grey's head. You answered and told me about Probac, Systemajuv, Tumor Supplement R, and Tumor Supplement F. I ordered them and it has been three weeks with Charro taking these medicines three times a day. I give them directly into his mouth, twelve drops each, and I put the small spoonful of Probac into his soft food at night because he always eats all of his soft food within fifteen minutes or so. Well, praise the Lord, the tumor is coming off his head!!!! It is actually coming loose around the edges and is going to fall off. I have already ordered enough of the above products to last for another three weeks. I am sure by then the tumor will be gone, but even though it will fall off before three weeks are up, I will finish the medicines just to make sure all is healed. I can't tell you how grateful I am for your help, but I praise God for guiding me to you. Charro is going to be a completely healthy bird again because of your products, and I will make sure he has access to them for as long as I am alive. I will keep in touch and let you know when the tumor is completely gone. Thanks again, Rickey   [Editor's Note--Rickey wrote this note on March 30]

Cancerous Tumor ---We have another update from one of our Iowa customers, Linda H. from Ames, Iowa whose bird had a large glandular tumor that was diagnosed malignant.  After administering Tumor Supplement R, Tumor Supplement F, Systemajuv, ProBac Adult and Metaltox for only two weeks, this cancerous glandular tumor fell off and disappeared.  Linda is still dumbfounded and happy.  Again, we recommended she keep her bird on this regiment for another month to make sure that the tumor disappears internally as well.  Then she is going to go back and get her bird re-examined by her Vet again.

About Tumors:  HI!  I WANTED TO GIVE YOU AN UPDATE ON MY BIRD.  I RECEIVED YOUR PRODUCTS ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3, BUT DIDN'T START GIVING THEM TO MY BIRD UNTIL SATURDAY MORNING.  IN ONLY TEN DAYS THE AREA THAT WAS GROWING OFF OF THE MAIN TUMOR WAS GONE!!!  I WAS IN SHOCK.  I HAD BEEN GIVING THE PRODUCTS DIRECTLY INTO HIS BEAK, ON HIS SOFT FOOD, AND IN HIS WATER.  NOW HE ONLY HAS SLIGHT SWELLING IN HIS WING AND I'M CONTINUING GIVING HIM THE PRODUCTS ON HIS SOFT FOOD AND IN HIS WATER UNTIL THE CAUSE OF THESE TUMORS IS WIPED OUT ENTIRELY.  ANOTHER THING I WAS DOING WAS PUTTING ALOE VERA GEL ON HIS WING TO SOOTHE THE AREA ON THE OUTSIDE. 

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SUCH WONDERFUL PRODUCTS!  I ONLY WISH I HAD BEEN USING THEM EARLIER BEFORE I LOST MY FIRST GREYCHEEK (THIS ONE'S MATE). ALICE S., CAPE GIRARDEAU , MO

About a Tumor:  My 9 1/2 year old ringneck hen had a tumor above her crop about 1/3 the size of her body.   On 2/6/02 I started her on your tumor products (Tumor Supplement F & Tumor Supplement R), Systemajuv and ProBac Adult.  On 2/26/02 this tumor fell off.  This was unbelievable if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes.

Breathing Problems

About Breathing Problems----I would like to also say thank you for giving me my bird back I had so many problems with him and respiratory and now he is singing to me again.  Thank you so much for all of your help.        Shirley from Ohio 

More Breathing Problems---About two years ago, my canary, (he's three)" Leo" developed a cold. I gave him store bought med's. and he seemed to get better, only to get sick again a month later. I gave him more store med's. He got sick again two months later. This went on and on.  I stopped giving him the med's and gave
up...Through all this he did not sing. Then I heard about Avian Medicine Chest.  I gave Leo Systemajuv, and ProBac. Three month's later, he is his old happy very vocal self.  Lesa F. from Providence Forge, Va.

About Aspergillos---I don't know if you remember me e-mailing you about our Meyer's Gizmo.  He was diagnosed with Aspergillosis in March.  I had sent you a message telling you that he was on Itraconazole and I was also using the Fungus SupplementProbac Adult,
Trace Minerals, and Systemajuv.  You told us that we should only use the natural route for our bird.  Well we continued. to do both because we did not know what was the right way to go with treating him with the vet saying one thing and your advice for the natural route.  I believe in going with a natural way but with the way we have been drilled with the idea that conventional medicine is how it should be done.  Well I'm here to tell you that I believe in your natural medicine alternative!  At the end of March  Gizmo became very ill on a Thursday evening and over the next few days we transported him back and forth from the vet's office and the emergency clinic on oxygen. We thought we where going to lose him on Sat. but he pulled through thanks to his bull-headed nature and will to survive along with many prayers from other animal lovers.  On Tuesday he was doing a lot better and appox. $2,000 later we had our little miracle back home with us.  He has not been on anything but Fungus Supplement, Probac, Trace Minerals, and Systemajuv.  We wholeheartedly believe in your products and recommend them to anyone who has birds.  The avian vet believed it was the itraconazole that made him so sick.  Can you imagine we almost killed our baby!  I know this is a lengthy note but if you would like to use it or part of it as a testimonial you are more than welcome to!  I would like to share this story with as many people as I can so they know there are other options available to them.  Thanks to the Lord and Avian Medicine Chest our little Gizmo is back to his old self vocalizing and gaining weight and as happy as can be.  I thank you for your time in reading and answering my messages and we regret not listening to your advice in the beginning, it would have saved us a lot of money and grief if we would have.  Debra J.  Editors Note--this lady tells it like it is.

About Aspergillus----  Here in Canada, we seem to always be fighting aspergillus problems.  When we spoke at the Detroit bird show you told me about Fungus Supplement™.   I decided to try it and see if it would work.  Within one month, I had over twelve very expensive birds with diagnosed with aspergillus.  Your Fungus Supplement™ and ProBac Adult™ are what we used instead of drugs and it worked within a matter of days all the birds were back to health.  Thank you so much for saving the birds.  Everybody in Canada will know.   We can’t recommend your products highly enough.  Thank you again.
Mike M. Ontario, Canada

I was ready to take my canary to the Santa Clara Show when two weeks prior, he started having trouble breathing.  I called you and you rushed me ProBac Adult, Systemajuv, and Fungus Supplement for aspergillos (just in case).  Within a couple of days, he was fully recovered.  Since he was fine, we went to the show where he came in 2nd in the entire show and he has been fine since.  Ray M.,  West Covina, California             

More Fungus Stories----Just an update on our greenwing macaw, Axel.  After first trying the Pro-Bac and Systemajuv to bring Axel up to speed, we then tried the Allergy Supplement for two weeks and while she did a bit better, she still sneezed had a slight discharge.  Well, we then tried Sinus Supplement for two weeks and that seemed to help more; however, we finally started her on Fungus Supplement for two weeks and within 5 days, we could really begin to see a difference.  The sneezing was not as often and the wetness all but went away.  We still vaporize her every 12 hours which she loves and she seems to have a raspiness towards the evening just before bedtime.  The rashiness on her cheeks have almost gone away and she very seldom sneezes.  There is just a hint of wetness from her nare but it is not as frequent as it used to be.  In a couple more days, I will start her on the Fungus Supplement again for two weeks.  All the while; however, I am using the Pro-Bac (for all of our guys). We also have three air cleaners going 24 hours a day and that really has cleaned up our household air. If you have any comments, love to hear from you.  I know that I did the regiment backwards, but we had a hard time believing that Axel may still have Aspergillus after all we went through for the past 18 months.  But I think now, using Fungus Supplement (like you recommended in the first place) would have gotten her to this point sooner.  Sorry about ignoring your directions. KK Sloan from California      Editors Note--we got a kick out of her last sentence.

About Allergies----Here in Texas, we always seem to have problems with allergies.  We tried the Allergy Supplement™ and ProBac™ on our African Grey who always seemed to have a runny nose and eyes after almost killing him with antibiotics over the past five years.  It worked great and we are so thankful, because he looks and acts like he used to before we moved here.  Thank you for having a natural allergy product that works.  We don’t like giving him drugs.  Anne B., Houston, Texas

We have had some really strange weather here and it was affecting my birds causing them to have colds and serious breathing problems.  I did not want to use antibiotics and I read your ad in Bird Talk and decided to call.  Your staff member sent me Systemajuv™ and ProBac Adult™ and said to use it liberally for the first week.  I did and within five days all of my birds returned to good health.  This is really wonderful stuff.  Thank you very much.
Mary V., Salt Lake City, Utah

About Fungus problems and Allergies----I just had to tell you how "right on " you are with this article and product.  My old Amazon suffered from years in a bad environment--she came to our home with a broken leg and bad lungs.  You saved her life--the vet and I were treating her with Baytril  and Sporonox for fungus.  Her
liver was going fast when you started her on the Sysemajuv, Pro Bac and Fungustem.   Within the week her fecal matter was back to normal and she was strong and eating well.  We were traveling back and forth from Oregon to Yuma with her and our Goffin.  She was allergic to the Goffin!  She would be sneezing and wheezing with mucus coming our of her nose.  As soon as we stopped, I would put a few drops  of Systemajuv  and Fungistem in her mouth  and the sneezing and allergic reaction would clear up.  It was just so amazing!  I still treat her with the Pro Bac , Systemajuv  and now using the Allereze and Vita Pak.  She turned 22 this year and laid her first egg.  I am thrilled to introduce your product to all I meet.  I always have them drink a sample to show them that not only is it terrific for the birds but it tastes good and the birds take their "medicine" willingly.  Sorry to be so long winded  but I just had to write--keep up the good work and Thanks from all the birds and us their owners!    Nell, Yuma, AZ       Editors Note---The article Nell is talking about is Breathing Problems in Birds located here http://www.petmedicinechest.com/avian/newsletterarchive.asp .

When I ordered the Sinus Supplement™, you also suggested the ProBac Adult™ to build up the immune system.  This must be the answer because our birds have not had a sinus problem since two days after we started.  Do we still need to use this everyday?  Thanks so much for helping our birds.  Gary L., Shreveport, La.  Editors Note:  We called Gary and told him to experiment and see if they needed Sinus Supplement™ everyday.  After about ten days, they started easing up on the dosage and now after rebuilding the immune system, they don’t need Sinus Supplement™ at all.

Feather Picking

About a Featherless Parakeet:  You may remember me and the little parakeet I contacted you about by the name of Timmy.  I rescued him from a very nasty situation along with an African Gray named George.  Timmy was totally featherless.  I purchased from you your product that you insisted would make Timmy grow feathers again.  Guess what????  It did!!!  Thanks so very very much.  Deb P., Avonmore, Pa.

About Swelling in the Feet:  Just wanted to get back to you and let you know that my canary is doing much better, swelling has gone down on his foot.  He is over moult and is chirping again, not singing yet but I am sure that will follow shortly.  Like a new bird, full of life.  Your products are wonderful!.  Also please tell Leslie S. the good news in marketing as she was very helpful with my order and questions.

Now, I have to go over to your web site and order some additional products.  Wish you would formulate some for people!  All the natural remedies out there now for people are so complicated.  Again, thanks and keep up the good work!  Sue   Editors Note:  Sue used Systemajuv and ProBac Adult to bring her bird back to health.

Enclosed is a check for a small bottle of Calm Supplement™.   I cannot believe the difference when my cockatiel uses it and when he doesn’t.   It is a miracle!!  Thanks again.
Ann M. T......Rutland, Vt.

About feather picking------Just wanted to say thank you. I ordered from you over 1 month ago for our feather picking blue and gold Tweetie. So far he is doing great... We see new feathers now and his attitude is even better. He don't seem as nervous as he
use to be.. This fellow has had one bad life until now, we rescued him from an abusive life. Thanks again for the help. I just made a reorder and I can't wait to see what the next several months holds in store for him.  Thanks a million.... Debbie S.
, Greenville, S. C.

Let's start with how pleased I am that you've finally been acknowledged by the Quaker Parakeet Society I've belonged to for many years and sung your praises.  Next, to let you know that despite still have two pluckers (of 7 Quakers), the combination of solutions has definitely decreased the severity and I am thankful for that.  Diane B., Magnolia, Tx.

Thank you!!  Your products came last week and there is a world of difference in our cockatoo!   She is eating & happy and I’m happy too--not anxious and worried and frustrated.  The ProBac Adult™ and the Calm Supplement™ are the best products in the world.  I called my friends in Georgia who directed me to you to thank them too.
Stephany B., Dunnellon, Florida

I can’t believe how well my birds traveled and adjusted to their new home in West Virginia from New York, City.  It has been a month since our move and the birds are still doing really great!  Thank your doctor for making the Bird Calm™ and the ProBac Adult™.
George M. , Salem, West Virginia

My bird has been using the Bird Calm™ and ProBac Adult™ for the past six months and he is doing fantastic after being a feather picker for years.   Thank you so much for having a natural remedy available.  I don’t like drugs and what they do to birds.
Kathy E., Memphis, Tenn.

About Feather Chewing----Hello!  This is to let you know how well my bird is doing on the medications I bought from you.  My Umbrella Cockatoo Justin wasn't plucking his feathers but was overpreening and chewing on them; and it seemed to me that they were "itching" him.  He preened his tail feathers until they broke off, and he even split new blood feathers that I had to pull out myself (oh, the trauma!) to keep him from bleeding to death.  So he had no tail feathers and was starting to work on his right wing.  Something had to be done.  I suspected that he might have metal and/or chemical toxins in his system because he scrapes his beak back and forth across the bars of his cage (they're "powder coated"), and I'm sure he's ingesting the powder. 
So after consulting with my friend (your associate) and you good folks at Avian Medicine Chest (AMC), I started him on Hemotox and Metaltox for the chemical/metal toxins.  In addition to the Hemotox and Metaltox, I am giving him Calm Supplement because he would also go into hollering fits, especially when my youngest daughter (with whom he is madly in love) left the room.  Since I started on these medications, he's stopped overpreening; and the hollering has really slacked off, too (thank goodness). 
Both AMC and my friend suggested Pro-Bac and Trace Minerals, so he gets those as well.  It was a pretty decent chunk of change, but it was less than a vet visit (of which he had plenty) and vet-prescribed medications would have been.  I've been really happy with the results of the remedies from AMC, and I highly recommend them!  Everyone has noticed and commented on the fact that Justin has tail feathers again--and I'm so pleased because he really does have beautiful feathers!                                                         Thank you, thank you, thank you!  Leilani, Dover, DE

Various Situations

Birds with Gout--- Three years ago, I had trouble with one of my canaries.  His leg had gotten very red and swollen.  I took him to the vet.  He said there was "something in his blood" that was settling in his leg.  He treated him with antibiotics and it appeared to have gotten better, but he said he would always have this problem, especially when he was under stress.  Two weeks later, the problem had returned.  As I still had some antibiotics, I treated him but this time it was not successful.  That was my first call to you.  You said that if the vet said it was "something in his blood" I should try Hemotox.  His leg cleared right up.  It happened once or twice again, and  again the Hemotox cleared it up.  At the time I didn't pay much attention to it, but he used to pass a large amount of urine in his dropping when he was having a flare up.  That, too cleared up with the Hemotox.  Because I really didn't know what his problem was, I treated him periodically to avoid any relapses.

     Since then I have been doing a great deal of reading and formed some idea of what his problem was that I only now have confirmed.  I subscribe to several bird publications.  In a current issue, someone wrote into "ask the vet" about their canary that had the exact  symptoms that mine had.  The vet said that the bird had gout caused by a build up of uric acid in his blood due to the early stages of kidney disease.  He could offer no help other than a change of diet.  Since I started treating my canary periodically with Hemotox, he has not had another flare up in over two years and he sings non-stop.

     Once again the Avian Medicine Chest  has cured a serious problem with one of my birds that did not respond to traditional medication.  I Thank You.  Nancy D., Staten Island, New York

I'm a believer, I just wanted to say what believers my husband and I are of your natural products! You have a testamonial of one of our birds that we treated with the conventional route that did not work and almost killed him and the, natural route (Avian Medicine Chest Products!) I just want your company to know that we still have Gizmo and he is now approx. 2 1/2 years old. Gizmo is a happy bird who is healthy and does lots of vocalizing! Keep up the good work with your wonderful products!  Sincere Thanks  Kyle and DeAnn J.

Almost Dead Birds:    After three rounds of ProBac Adult, Systemajuv and Fungus Supplement, my almost dead birds are alive and well.  I can't thank you enough.  Paula K., British Columbia, Canada.

About Infections---I just wanted to share a story with you.  Last Tuesday I was not at home all day.  When I finally got home, my daughter said something was wrong with "Petey Girl", one of my cockatiels.  She was sitting at the bottom of the cage squinting her eyes so only a slit was open and she was shaking her head and then holding it tilted to one side.  I immediately called my vet knowing that the situation was serious.  My avian vet was away for a few days, so I immediately started her on Systemajuv and Sinus Supplement (thinking that perhaps her sinuses were involved as she was shaking her head) both in her water and orally.  The next morning I called your number and the gentleman agreed with me on the treatment that I was doing. Two days passed and we made a vet appointment, he found her "perfectly healthy".  Even her blood work came back normal.  I had shown him the medication I had given her and he said he didn't know whether it was a head trauma or an infection, but irregardless, it was obvious that the medicine had helped her situation.  Even though she seems fully recovered I am continuing to put them in her water for another week just to be on the safe side.  At times like this, I am glad I keep my cabinet fully stocked.                                                            Thanks Again,    Nancy,   Staten Island, NY

About Fleas & Mites---Hi there, I just wanted you to know that I do see signs of improvement in my little budgies who have been plauged with mites and lice.  Sissy Blue who is the worst visibly is growing new feathers back where she was bald, and Button has grown back some of her flight feathers so she can fly now, and she is very happy about that.  Also, my birdies are more active and seem happier too, so I am very pleased at their progress.  I will keep you posted, so far it's been great.  Thanks so much.   Julie and budgies, Moatsville, WV.    Editors Note--Julie used Worm Out and Parastem for  mites and lice problem; used Calm Supplement for the feather picking; ProBac Adult to balance the flora in their system.

About General Health Problems---By the way, it is thanks to you that  our English budgie, Jemico, is hale and hardy. After spending several hundred dollars in vet bills to no avail, he was in terrible condition.  Then I began using all of the products that we received from you.  You should see him now, he is gorgeous!! Shirley M. Cedar Rapids, Ia.   Editors Note--we sent her Systemajuv, ProBac Adult and Concentrated Trace Minerals for her birdie. This took 4 months. 

Products that work Well:  You know these products work so well, I am telling all my customers to call you whenever I sell them a bird.  Carolyn R., Kingsville, Ontario

About being at the bottom of the cage---- I got my package Friday at l:00 just as I was leaving to go back to work.  I quickly made a batch of "stuff" for Allie, dosed her, and took her to work with me.  I continued to dose her every hour and she's already acting a little more perky.  She's showing interest again in her seed - mostly has been living on her two most favorite things in life:  scrambled egg and peas.  At 6:30 tonight, met me at the cage door and ate them (from my hand) while sitting on the perch WHICH IS ABSOLUTLELY AMAZING!  She has been living down on the bottom of her cage - not even standing.  I am SO thankful I saw your ad in "Bird Talk".  I hope she continues to progress.  I'll keep in touch to let you tell me what the next steps should be in her treatment.  Thanks again from Allie (canary) and Myrl, Santa Ana, CA     Editors Note---Mryl used Systemajuv and Pro Bac Adult to help aid Allie back to health.

About An Elderly Bird---Just wanted to say thank you. this bird had been sick for two years, going to the vets. the bills were getting so high and nothing helping that I did not take her any more, I just wash her little bottom every day.  She was a mess she would sit way back in her cage droopy eyes, she was not  eating. I talked to you about two weeks ago. and you told me what I needed, the Fungus Supplement, Virastem,  she was already on the Pro-Bac and SystemajuvTrace Minerals but was not working.  Since I have put her on these other meds she is a new bird she wants her food right now, she is meeting me at the door.  And she even had a bath today. Just wanted to say thank you to all of you there.  Sandee    PS   This bird is 22 years old and I was told that she was too old to do anything for.  Thank you again. Sandee

About Fertility and "Old Hens"---When do you know if a hen is too old to produce and or be a good Mom?  This is a difficult question and a question that is very individualistic.  Several years ago, I would have told you that a hen is good for 3 or maybe 4 years of good breeding.  This year I have 3 hens (the hens are 5 and 6 years old) that I had to take out of the retirement cage and put into the breeding program because of their insistence.  One hen has 4 chicks 1 week old (and doing great), 2 hens are on eggs and one of them has 5 fertile eggs........ Now the main difference in their lives has been Avian Medicine Chest..... This is my second year of using their products and I truly believe that it has influenced the life and production of my flock.  I use religiously Trace Minerals, Pro-Bac and Vita-Pak.  Ella G. from California

About Health Maintenance-----I have eight birds (four budgies and four tiels) and all of them currently take ProBac Adult and Systemajuv. Your can see a real diffeence, especially in Ceasar, my rescue 6 year old grey tiel. He was in bad shape when we got him, and had lost or broken all his tail feathers. After just two months on your products, I have two nice long tail feathers, and another one coming in! All my birds seem to have more energy and increased appetites. What wonderful products, and you can count me among your very satisfied customers! In fact, I just placed another order.  Thanks you for improving my birds' health.  Krista K. and Babysflock,  Hinsdale, Il.

About Bringing Her Bird Back to Health----Thank you so much for the herbal medicine for Cody my cockatoo. He is healthy at last. I gave him the Systemajuv, Pro Bac Adult and the Vitamins, also the detoxing for metals, and chemicals. He's eating better, gaining weight and acting like his old self even better than his old self.  I will continue to keep him and my other bird on these herbs.  Thanks again.     Sincerely,  Ida E. from Yakima, WAEditors Note----Detoxing consists of Hemotox and Metaltox.

Chickens too----

 I bought a BIG bottle of the Pro-Bac Adult a few years ago and I can't tell you how wonderful it is.  All my birds get a sprinkle on their soft food once a week.  I add it to the egg food I give my breeders, and mix it into my hand-feeding formula.  Since I began using the product, I haven't had any problems with sick, slow-cropped chicks.  All my babies are "fat and sassy" and their parents are just beautiful. 

    Last April, the college where I work accidentally received 75 day-old baby chicks.  I took 15, and a colleague took the rest.  I mixed the Pro-Bac into their water every day for ten days (I did this because shipping is very stressful).  Well, I didn't lose any chicks, but my colleague lost several before I gave him some of my Pro-Bac.  He said it did the trick!  Neither of us are plagued by the nasty bacteria that infect the local farm-raised hens.  I'll be buying more Pro-Bac in a few months because I'm getting low.    Thank you, Jana R., Illinois

On December 10, 2000 I noticed my chickens were sick with chronic respiratory disease.  They were really sick and the egg count was off by 65%.  A total of 9 hens died.   I separated the visibly sick ones to a separate building and started giving them Systemajuv, ProBac Adult and Fungus Supplement.   Seven days later both the sick hens and the OK hens were doing OK.  After seven more days, I started giving them the Fertility Supplement to see if it would help the egg count.  Three days later, the eggs started coming back like before.  Now a month later, the hens are well and back to normal.  I really believe the Avian Medicine saved our flock.  Best of all we were still able to keep selling the egg by being on a natural remedy and not using drugs.  Thank you very much.  Jerry Fritz, Logan, Iowa [We buy Jerry's free range chickens and his eggs too and noticed the shells were getting stronger.  Didn't realize he had started the Fertility Supplement, but it sure made strong egg shells.] 

About Viral Infections----I called you about  3 weeks ago about a virus that I had in my birds.  This happened after I bought some manikin finches.  I had them away from the rest of the birds, but I must have carried it to them.  I lost all the birds I bought and a bh. pionus. After talking to you and getting the medication the next day I haven't lost a bird.  In fact their in better shape than before I bought the finches. I had a bronzwing that was on her last leg and she recovered and looks like a diffrent bird. I can't say thank you enough. Thanks many times. Bart, Glennville, GA       Editors Note-- Bart used Pro Bac Adult, Systemajuv, and Virastem to help with this virus.


About a canary not singing----A few months ago, I wrote to you about my little canary who stopped singing (stopped making any noises at all) shortly after he came into our home. The silent treatment lasted for nearly four months!  I just wanted to let you know that he is now singing up a storm!  In addition to adding Systemajuv and ProBac to his life, I'd also like to share a few other things that helped turn him around:  We originally had him in an old cage (in which we once kept parakeets). Our breeder advised us that a "barn style" cage is much better for canaries, because they are more comfortable flying around (many cages are better for climbing around). He loves his new cage and enjoys swinging on the swing very much.  Second, our breeder suggested getting him a canary singing tape. When he started to mutter and peep, I'd pop it in the cassette. The first two times, he simply looked around for all the other birds. Then he started singing. Now he does not need the tape at all--his singing is absolutely heavenly!  If another fretting canary owner writes to you about a singing problem, please feel free to pass along this advice.  Thanks.  Jean Lachowicz, Chicago, IL

About Health Maintenance and Sinus Conditions----Although I have wondered about the use of alcohol in your products I have NEVER been worried about the fact that it was an ingredient in your products.  The efficacy of your products speak for themselves.  My Ruby, (Red Sided Eclectus) has been consuming Systemajuv and  Sinus Supplement in her water for over three years now. I not only have NEVER seen any ill effects but to the contrary she is quite a healthy bird. The Sinus Supplement has almost completely eliminated her sneezing, occasionally requiring a few drops right down the gullet.  I sprinkle a little Pro-Bac Adult Maximizer and a little Botanical Bird Food on her Volkman seed mix regularly and she seems to like it just fine. In addition the fresh fruit, vegetables, and occasional bread and crackers she gets my biggest problem is to prevent her from gaining to much weight. She has been laying a clutch of two eggs about every 4 months or so since I got her so I add a little sprinkle of crushed bone to her seeds to help maintain her calcium. Her avian vet marvels at her coloration and activity when I take her regularly for a checkup, wing clipping and toenail trimming.  It really make me feel good to hear her comments about how good Ruby looks and the care I give her.  Ruby takes a shower outside at least three times a week and really seems to enjoy preening her feathers.  Thank you for the through explanation of your use of alcohol in your products. It answered all the questions I never asked you before. I encourage anyone who owns (or is owned by) and loves their bird companions to use your wonderful products.  As long as Ruby and I live together she will be consuming your products, so I hope you don't go out of business for at least another 50 to 70 years.  Yours Sincerely,   David and  Ruby,  Waimea, HI     Editors Note---If you have questions about the alcohol in our products please go here  http://www.petmedicinechest.com/avian/newsletterarchive.asp  and read the article David is talking about.

Toxins

Pulling Skin Off  Her Feet-----Mega thanks!!!!!!
A few weeks ago I had written to you about my 10 year old Mallucan cockatoo hen that I took to the vet for pulling the skin off her feet and was told that she supposedly had "allergies".  You recommended the Pro-Bac, Systemajuv, Hemotox and Metaltox and Oxyjuv to heal her wounds in order to save her.  I purchased all 5 and began giving her the medicines right away.  The next day she started chewing up my toothbrush, something she hadn't done for a few months and last night she put on a good cockatoo scream show, complete with ruffled feathers and lots of body motion. Once again this was something she really hasn't done for about a year.  While she scared my cats, it was good to hear her scream so loud and look so happy doing it.  Her feet are all healed and no new lesions or skin peeling (other than normal) has occurred.  She doesn't seem to have itchy skin any more.  I have also noticed that her feathers are really starting to grow and she has regained the spunky part of her personality, in addition to having a much improved appetite.

Thank you for helping me get her well.  The cost of your medicine was less than half of the vet bill and was way more effective.  I can't wait to show and tell the vet how I "cured" my bird.  
I have become a huge believer in these products and I am currently setting up a personal website so that I can become an associate and direct my pet-loving friends to your website for help.  I am also going to get my recently rescued (from death row at the pound) cats on their own Probac and Systemajuv.  I can't wait to see what these 6 and 7 year old boys will transform into.  Thanks again!!!  Julianne H., Arizona

After meeting you at the AFA convention and telling you I had spent over $5,000 to test and attempt to save my birds, you suggested the Metaltox™ and ProBac Adult™ which cost me a total of $38.  I went home immediately to begin administering to my birds.   Within hours the worst ones showed signs of improving.  I thought I was wishing it, but it turned out to be the treatment my birds absolutely needed.  The bad part is I knew they had zinc poisoning from all my research, but the “brains I spoke with” told me I was wrong.  Thank you so much for being there and helping me bring my birds back to health for a mere $38.  I still can’t believe it.   Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Linda N., Whitehaven, Pa.

I treated my entire flock with the Metaltox™ after reading about the metal filings in the foods and they have never looked healthier. Incidentally, I also tested the food I was giving my adult birds and also my babies.   I can’t believe it, there really were lots of metal pieces.  Now I know why I had some of the odd problems I had from time-to-time.  Thank you so much for making me aware and thank you so very much for your wonderful natural remedy for this metal poisoning.
Pat D. , Eldridge, Calif.

I would like to express my appreciation to you and your company for resurrecting and saving my beautiful Canary, Luca.  My dear Luca had just been given a terrible diagnosis from an avian vet of a hereditary skin disease with a fatal outcome.  He had stopped singing and had lost all his feathers on top of his head.  The vet said he would eventually lose all his feathers and die from the cold.  I was devastated.   You advised me to use Hemotox™, Systemajuv™, and ProBac Adult™.  For the first three weeks there was not much improvement, but he did not get worse.  Then one day two weeks ago as I was doing some housework with the stereo on, I heard Luca singing.  I was thrilled, I had not heard his beautiful song in so long.  He has now re-grown most of his feathers and seems to be very happy and healthy thanks to you and your wonderful products.  Thank you so much.
Brenda L., Westport, CT.
P.S.-----It took almost sixty days to bring Brenda’s little friend back to health because he was so toxic.

A quick note to let you know our African Grey that was deathly ill in August and the Vet told us to prepare for her death by Aug. 16th is alive and well and singing.  The products are incredible.  We gave her Hemotox, Metaltox, ProBac, Systemajuv and Trace Minerals daily.  She is slowly being taken off the herbs.  One day off every 21 days right now.  She has never been so alive, vocal and is biting again.  Love bites of course.  Please share this in your newsletter if you wish.  Thank you and keep up the good work.  Melanie R., Silverton, Oregon  

Smoking and Birds------A week or so ago I talked to you by phone about washing the cigarette smoke off my son's birdie, that I was keeping while they were on vacation. She has had two baths in Veggie Cleanse.....she looks SO much better and it's VERY obvious that she feels better. I also cleaned her cage!  And have started to de-tox her! The GOOD news is when I told him why she looked like a feather duster instead of a birdie, he was SO UPSET that he has stopped the smokers from smoking in the house.....he doesn't smoke. They got back from vacation Sunday and he said he isn't taking Taylor (his birdie) home until everything is washed down, painted and aired out!  Not only will Taylor be healthier but, so will he!       Barbara S., Clarksville, In. Editor's Note--- Detoxing consists of Hemotox and Metaltox.

Smoking and Birds----I have been a long standing customer of yours for several years.  You have published my story about my White Cap Pionus, Lucky, who was not so lucky.  He died due to being exposed to smokers for the first year of his life.  He died at age seven.  Anyway, I use to have to ask a vet. to look at my birds (11 large birds) often for various illnesses until I began using your products.  Well, I have not had to have a vet. look at a bird for, what, three years?  And now, I use your products on my lizards.  Thank you, keep up the great work.   Tam

About a fire and a Bird:  I just have to tell you another little life is saved.  My parents neighbor went away for a few weeks.  On New Years Day we were at their house when the fire engines and police and ambulance came next door.  The people upstairs were taken to the hospital with carbon monoxide poisoning. The downstairs apartment was empty except two little parakeets. One was dead but the the other one was still alive. The firemen rushed them outside in the freezing cold. I took the cage and brought it inside. We buried the dead one and worked on the live one. We kept it warm and gave it fresh air. A few hours later it was slumped at the bottom of the cage kissing the floor! Well I thought it was over by now. My husband is an EMT so he said lets hook up the oxygen tank and make a tent out of his cage. I laughed, but 10 minutes later he was still there. A half hour later he was still alive.  I of course said my prayers for the little guy and gave him the cat's herbs (yes Feline herbs)--- Systemajuv, Probac, Trace Minerals, Hemotox, and Metaltox.  We saved this little guy's life and are thrilled to let everyone know.  Gail H.

Nutritional Support

Heavy Moulting-----Also want to tell you how our Alexandrine,  Ringo, was going through a very hard moult...we had him on the ProBac and the Vita-Pack and Trace Minerals which kept his immune system strong, but his overall appearance was dull and mealy.  So we gave him a course of the SystemaJuv and in ten days, the glossy feathers just POPPED out of him. He is just gorgeous now and full of pep.   Thanks for providing sane products at a sane price.  Sincerely Yours,  Cathy M., Orlando, Fl.

About Nutrient Deficiencies----Cheryl R. from Houston, Texas had a bird that was eating its own droppings.  We recommended Concentrated Trace Minerals because it obviously was lacking something in its diet and was looking for it.  Within a matter of days, her bird stopped this nasty practice and is back to good health.  Cheryl used the ProBac with it to make sure her bird absorbed the nutrients that were lacking.  Cheryl is definitely happy now!!

About Calcium Deficiency----Donna S. from Damon, Texas, had a bird that was having seizures due to a calcium deficiency because she had forgotten to give them "cuttle bone".  After taking it to the Vet for calcium injections to get over the crises,  Donna began giving them Concentrated Trace Minerals along with the Avian Vita Pak.  No problems now!   Another product that Donna recommends is the Hemotox to clear her bird's liver and kidneys of impurities on a monthly basis.  People tell Donna that she has the prettiest feathered birds and the healthiest birds they have ever seen.  Donna swears by all-natural products and her birds reflect her dedication.  

About "incurable" diseases/viruses in the Aviary------Joan H. from Troy, Texas was advised to get rid of her more than 300 birds if she wanted to get an inexplicable virus from her aviary.  She called in a panic and asked we had that might help.  We sent her Terra Cleanse which she misted in her entire aviary---on the birds, in their water, in their food, on the ceiling, on the walls, the floor absolutely everywhere---everyday for six weeks.  Then she had a technician come in and take swabs to test for pathogens.  They found absolutely no pathogens in her entire aviary or in any of the birds.  Talk about a happy and relieved customer!!!  Now Joan uses Terra Cleanse two times weekly to prevent any future situations.  The enzymes in this natural product developed by Dr. Joe Sprull in the 1940's still do a wonderful cleaning job in the new century.  

About Breeding----I had been trying for five years to breed my birds without success.  After reading your literature, I decided to try the Fertility Supplement™ and the ProBac Adult™.   Our little girl laid her first egg today.  We are thrilled and so thankful for your magic products.
Chris S. , Evansville, Indiana.
PS:  Chris called us three weeks later and told us her hen’s four eggs were indeed fertile.

I bought at the bird show this spring some ProBac Adult Maximizer™ and some Fertility Supplement™.   I must say thank you.  I got the baby love birds and other pairs of breeder birds to finally breed and have babies.  I am a very happy customer.  Please send me a catalog of all your products so I may order more.  Thanks again.
Ron R., Altoona, Iowa

Going Light and/or Fading Away

After helplessly watching several of our birds fad away and die, we heard about your “cure” .  We used your recipe and saved all but the two birds who were too far gone to save.  We will never again be without the Concentrated Trace Minerals™ and ProBac Adult™ in our aviary.  Every aviary should be using them on a regular basis.  Thank you and your company for finding a solution to this horrible problem.  I just wish I had known you a year ago when this all started.
Dale W., Ontario, Canada

As you know canaries have a real problem with the “going light disease”.   I lost four beautiful award winning birds before I learned about your solution at the Denver show just in time to bring my birds who were exhibiting the same devastating signs back to health.  I was skeptical at first, but felt I had nothing to lose, because they were “going to die anyway” .  Within only two days I could see a noticeable improvement and within two weeks they were almost completely back to normal and singing again.  My birds will never be without their ProBac Adult™ and their Concentrated Trace Minerals™ ever again.  Thank you so much for helping me save my beloved birds.
Paul M., Golden, Colorado

Just a note to say hi and I want to thank you for that container of Botanical Bird Food.  We had moved four breeders to other parts of the house and one pair “decided not to eat”, so I sprinkled that supplement over their feed for a few days.  I have no problems with them eating now.
Faye G. , Wimberley, Texas
