CON bRIO colomba

What is Con Brio Colomba?

Con Brio is an all-natural product, based on two essential oils: eucalyptus and peppermint, combined with organic menthol from the peppermint plant. The water-soluble formula can be used in both water and an atomiser spray.

How does Con Brio Colomba work?

1,8 Cineol (the active ingredient in eucalyptus oil) and menthol (from the peppermint plant) have for decades been known for their relieving effect on respiration. Both essential oils have an antimicrobial effect that has been tested extensively in many scientific studies.

During an airway inflammation, the cells in the upper respiratory tract produce mucus. Mucus can act as a blockage and cause shortness of breath. In addition to its antimicrobial effect, 1,8 cineol reduces the mucus layer in three ways: by reducing the underlying inflammation, by stimulating the cilia that remove mucus and by decreasing mucus production. Menthol is one of the most frequently used products to lighten the symptoms of a cold. It has a soothing and cooling effect on the throat and also gives the sensation of more free respiration. Higher (outside) temperatures and a dusty environment can hinder your bird’s breathing. Adding Con Brio to the water supply can support your bird to breathe more freely.

What's the proper dosage?

Curative usage: 10 ml Con Brio Colomba per 2 litre of drinking water, during 1-4 days. Alternatively, 10 drops per drinking bowl. Mix the specified amount of Con Brio Colomba with lukewarm water (maximum 40 degrees). Diluted Con Brio Colomba may be added to the water supply for 24 hours, for 1-4 days. Preventatively, Con Brio Colomba can be used continuously. We advise adding Con Brio Colomba 4 days per week.

GUSTOSO colomba

What is Gustoso Colomba?

Gustoso Colomba is an acidic mix based upon the synergetic combination of buffered organic acids such as formic acid, lactic acid, acetic acid, propionic acid and ascorbic acid. Also, Gustoso Colomba contains the trace metals copper and zinc. Gustoso Colomba can be dissolved in the water supply.

The effects of organic acids, and copper and zinc chelate

Organic acids contribute primarily to the excellent health and growth of birds. Lowering the pH value of the gastrointestinal system inhibits the potential growth of pathogenic bacteria and improves protein digestion. The antibacterial effect of organic acids is evident in both the water supply and the gastrointestinal system of the bird. With birds, this happens mainly in the crop, proventriculus, gizzard and the duodenum. Copper and zinc both play an important role in many bodily processes. The advantage of chelated minerals, as opposed to other kinds, is that chelated minerals are more easily absorbed.

How does Gustoso Colomba work?

Gustoso Colomba can be administered preventatively for a proper intestinal function, to support protein absorption in the gastrointestinal system and when the water supply has bacterial contamination. Gustoso Colomba can be used curatively after vaccination or the administration of antibiotics. Gustoso Colomba also contributes to a smooth, shiny and complete plumage.

What’s the proper dosage?

Curative usage: 15 ml Gustoso Colomba per 2 litre of drinking water, during 3-14 days. Alternatively, 10 drops per drinking bowl.

The dosage depends on the pH of the water after product addition. The pH of the water supply should be below 4; that’s when the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms is inhibited. Preventatively, Gustoso Colomba can be used continuously, we recommend using it 5 days per week.


What is Vivace Colomba?

Vivace Colomba is an energy boost with added nutrients. Vivace Colomba is based on vitamins, minerals, amino acids, glucose, organic acids and medicinal plant extracts.

Much more than just vitamins

Vivace’s complex composition is targeted specifically to supply extra energy and building blocks, and to stimulate the natural immune system. Vivace Colomba contains four essential amino acids: methionine, tryptophan, threonine and lysine. These are the limiting building blocks of proteins. Vivace Colomba also contains copper, zinc, magnesium and calcium.

Next to building blocks Vivace Colomba also contains ingredients that optimize the uptake of nutrients. Organic acids support the digestion of proteins. Lactic acid and the prebiotic inulin are known to stimulate positive bacteria in the bowels. Vitamin-B complex plays an important part in the digestion of fats, carbohydrates and proteins. The herbal extracts in Vivace are Ginseng and Echinacea purpurea. Ginseng is a medicinal plant of which the root is known for its beneficial effect on the natural immune system. Ginseng is shown to stimulate the production of antibodies after vaccination in birds. Echinacea purpurea also has a positive effect on the production of antibodies. Vivace Colomba contains glucose as a direct energy source.

How does Vivace Colomba work?

Vivace Colomba is more than a vitamin supplement or an electrolyte mix. The complex and energy-rich composition has proved specifically to have positive effects. Vivace stimulates the immune system. It’s important to use Vivace Colomba only when animals do not show signs of metabolic disorders such as watery droppings. The four categories of essential nutrients are vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and essential amino acids. Nutrients are essential for healthy bodily functions. Vivace Colomba is used when a bird has to perform at a higher level, for instance during pigeon racing or at bird shows.

What’s the proper dosage?

Curative usage: 4-7 days: 5-10 ml per 2 litre of drinking water. Alternatively, 10 drops per drinking bowl. Preventatively, Vivace can be used continuously. We advise adding Vivace 4 days per week.
