Fauna Flora is a blend of enzymes designed to aid digestion. It promotes food breakdown and nutrient absorption whilst acting as a probiotic.
Based on an organic Saccharomyces yeast, Fauna Flora is suitable for use in birds, reptiles and a range of mammals where improved digestion is required.
Fauna Flora may be beneficial for:

Flora Fauna is activated by coming in contact with water which triggers the yeast into action. The active yeast then breaks down complex nutrient molecules into simpler more digestible and absorbable forms.
The benefit of using this in hand-rearing food is two-fold:
1 - Better absorption
The digestive system of baby birds is better able to cope with simple nutrient molecules as, in general, the full range of enzymes required to break down many food types is not fully established in chicks. This allows better absorption and promotes better growth.
2 - Ease of administration
When preparing hand-rearing formulas, many are initially either too thick to pass through a syringe or are too-thick to move easily out of the crop of the baby bird, potentially leading to problems. The temptation is to over-dilute the formula. Whilst this may alleviate these issues it has the problem of reducing the nutrient content per feed. By breaking down the hand-rearing mix with Flora Fauna the food is naturally thinned, as complex nutrients tend to be more ‘gloopy’ than simple ones, without losing any of the nutrient quantity.
After bag is opened, Fauna Flora should be kept dry and stored in the freezer
Birds: Add a pinch (1/16th tsp) per meal.
Other animals: Top dress the animal’s food with Fauna Flora. For a volume of food equivalent to approximately 250ml (1 cup) use ½ tsp of Fauna Flora. For geriatric animals use 1tsp per food equivalent to 250ml.
After making your hand-rearing formula, allow it to cool and then sprinkle Flora Fauna on the surface. Allow this to stand for a short while, re-mix the formula and allow it to stand until the mixture is notably thinner. If you are feeding from a spoon then there is no need to allow the food to stand as the yeast will do its job inside the chick’s crop.
