The first semi-elemental diet designed for the critically-ill fish eater. Developed by veterinarians and nutritionists, Emeraid Piscivore provides an easily absorbable and highly digestible blend of purified aminio acids, hydrolyzed proteins, stabilized vitamins, dietary nucleotides to provide DNA and RNA precursors, plus simple carbohydrates for energy. Fish oil is added just before feeding so that dietary fat level can be varied from 5% to 35%.
The International Bird Rescue finds Emeraid Piscivore to be an excellent stabilization diet for debilitated sea birds. International Bird Rescue has fed Emeraid Piscivore to hundreds of birds from dozens of species including Charadriiformes (gulls, terms, alcids), Ciconiiformes (egrets, herons), Gaviiformes (loons), Pelecaniformes (pelicans, cormorants), Podicipediformes (grebes), and Procellariformes ( fulmars, shearwaters).
Emeraid Piscivore® is a fish-oil based diet with fat levels that can be modified from 5% to 30%. Fish oil is added to Emeraid powder in-house.
