TOP's pellets were developed in 2003 by avian nutritionists, including Dr. Alicia McWatters, to be the best diet on the market. TOP's pellets are cold-pressed (not extruded or baked) to keep natural enzymes, vitamins, and other nutrients intact. Like you, TOPs are passionate about parrots of all sizes and care deeply about their nutrition.
 

TOP's mission is to provide you and your companion parrots with the highest quality food available, that's why TOPs use only locally-sourced, all-natural organic, and GMO-free ingredients from carefully chosen suppliers for their specialized pellets and seed mixes. You'll never see any dyes, artificial ingredients or fillers, like corn or soy, in their products. Afterall, healthy food makes healthy birds and our wish is for you and your parrot to have a long, happy and fulfilling friendship together.

TOP's Parrot Food will be available in South Africa as from October 2019 and Pet Habitat is excited to be able to expand the global availability of the TOP's pellet range.

TOP's Parrot Food products are Non-GMO and made with 100% pure ingredients, including organic components and sustainably-grown grains and vegetables. Other pellets on the market contain fillers such as corn, soy, peanuts, added minerals and added artificial vitamins. TOP's contains only real food ingredients.

TOP's Parrot Food offers your companion bird an ecological, sustainably-grown food that is an excellent addition to any diet. Below are a few product ingredient highlights of their pellets so you can get better acquainted with what you feed your friends.

There is natural Vitamin D and artificial Vitamin D. The Vitamin D in most pellets is artificial. When taking artificial Vitamin D you need to increase the liquid intake, meaning you have to drink more which is difficult to get a parrot to do. The Vitamin D in TOP’s pellets is provided by seaweeds and alfalfa, which are natural forms of Vitamin D. From this natural form of the Vitamin D the body can absorb as much as it needs and no increased drinking is necessary and therefore no danger of kidney damage.

TOP's pellets are an important part of a complete diet. Feed approximately as much as your bird will consume in a day. Some days birds will eat more than others so the amount will fluctuate. Discard the remainder and feed fresh pellets each time. Consult your avian veterinarian if you have any specific diet related concerns. Although an excellent source of protein, vitamins and minerals, we believe that no pellet can provide 100 percent of a bird’s nutritional needs. Please be sure to offer them vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds for a varied diet.

TOP's products are packed in consumer grade retail bags and contain oxygen absorbers to extend shelf life for more than 12 months. This process is different than vacuum sealing so some bags may contain more natural atmospheric volume than others and may be less formed than other bags.

 

Why Don't TOPs Use Soy, Peanuts or Wheat In Their Pellets?

Here's why TOP's Parrot Food pellets do not contain soy, peanuts or wheat:

Soy
Soybeans in their natural state contain large quantities of natural toxins and there is data that soy is cumulatively toxic when fed to animals. For example, The PARROT SOCIETY NEW ZEALAND claims that soy products in bird food have caused such problems as immune system breakdown, failure of organs and multiplication of the birds’ own benign bacteria.

Peanuts
It seems that more and more birds develop allergic reactions to peanuts, so we view them as a great treat for birds that are not allergic to them, but not part of their daily diet.

Wheat
Wheat is a common allergen and contains about 80 different components that can cause a negative reaction.

Other pellets on the market contain fillers such as corn, soy, peanuts, added minerals and added artificial vitamins. TOP's contains only real food ingredients.

All TOP's products are made in the United States.
