Compared to us, Amazons, African greys, and other parrots seem to age gracefully, at least outwardly. After all, they don’t have as noticeable changes in appearance. These long-lived parrots are, however, susceptible to many of the same age-related conditions we face.
And like us, their healthcare needs change as they age, especially their nutritional requirements. Fortunately, Senior Bird Nutri-Berries was specifically formulated to give your bird all the nutrients he needs during his golden years without sacrificing the tastes or textures he craves.
We added herbs like milk thistle for its anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic effect, as well as dandelion to support bone health and improve liver function. We included ginger — a powerful anti-inflammatory herb — to help ease tendonitis, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and to help prevent blood clots. We also combined the joint-health supplements glucosamine, to combat osteoarthritis, and chondroitin, to ease joint pain and swelling.
Senior Bird Nutri-Berries are also packed with real pieces of age-defying fruits: plums, which provide dietary fiber and are high in vitamins A, C, K, potassium, fluoride, and beta-carotene; cranberries, which are full of antioxidants that strengthen the immune system by flushing out harmful toxins; and dates, which are iron-rich fruits that contain flavonoid polyphenolic antioxidants known as tannins that possess anti-infective, anti-inflammatory, and anti-hemorrhagic properties.
Senior Bird Nutri-Berries offer the same balanced nutrition as our Classic and Gourmet Nutri-Berries, plus they are formulated to meet the special needs of mature birds. They contain 61% pellets, 26% wholesome grains, and 13% fruits and herbs — the perfect recipe for a long, happy life for your pet bird.

I have a 38 year old parrot that has liver disease, therefore he has a very strict diet. Most treats are too high in fat.
He misses having some form of treats I was very happy to see a treat made for senior birds. He got the treats for Christmas he loves them and he has had no reaction. If he eats fatty food he will pluck his feathers from the pain. He gets 4 treats at the time 3 times a week and so far so good.
