Bene-Bac Plus is a FOS & probiotic supplement powder for birds and reptiles. Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are naturally found in chicory, onions, asparagus, wheat, tomatoes, and other fruits, vegetables, and grains. They also can be derived from cane sugar and seaweed for use as a low-calorie food sweetener and supplement. They improve food taste and texture while aiding immunity, bone health, and the growth and balance of important bacteria in the digestive tract.

Growth and Maintenance:
Feed birds weekly by top dressing Bene-Bac Plus powder on moistened or oiled dry food or fresh fruits or vegetables. Use table above as a guideline for amount to feed, up to a maximum of 1 teaspoon per feeding. Discard uneaten food after no more than 8 hours and thoroughly wash dishes. Changing Conditions: Use quantities indicated for growth and maintenance, but provide 2 feedings, 3 days apart, before and after periods of environmental or nutritional changes. If the bird is anorexic, consult your veterinarian.
If several birds are maintained in a common cage or flyway, use the approximate total weight for all birds to determine feeding level. Mix with feed so that all birds receive appropriate amount. For large ratites, use 1 teaspoon for growing birds and 2 teaspoons for mature stock. Follow frequency feeding directions in Directions for Use. Reptiles should be provided Bene-Bac Plus Powder on the same weight basis as birds. Wash all feeding dishes, water bottles or water dishes thoroughly with hot soapy water and rinse well after each use. Be sure to contact your veterinarian for any illness.
