Pet store alternative to (vet) Harrisons?

NM-ended up deciding to try Roudybush Maintenance. We'll see how it goes

Re: Pet store alternative to (vet) Harrisons?

I think Roundybush is also supposed to be a very good option. Keeping in mind, my birds use pellets as "side dish" rather than main food, I use Harrison's in combination with Lafeber myself. I'm pretty sure Roundybush is supposed to be better than Lafeber.

Many people really like TOPS which might also be not-commonly found at all petstores

(ALSO you could check with your petstore or even with Chewy, they might be able to order-in Harrison's for you, IF you want them to.)

Thanks for the input, I actually just went ahead and ordered Roudybush from Chewy I've only been able to find Harrisons at our vet (none that are closer to us carry it), and then on Amazon with high shipping costs.

All right, I'm a bit calmer now LOL

Re: Pet store alternative to (vet) Harrisons?

Given the choice, I'd go with the Roudybush over zupreem. The birds seem to like zupreem, but it's higher in sugars and the like. Kind of like birdie junk food. An obvious no go for my Ekkie, even though it's what his previous owner was feeding him. Sometimes though, the best choice boils down to what you can get, and what they will eat.

I much prefer to buy local, but in your current situation, have you considered ordering on line? Might be an option to get you through, even if it's temporary.

I too prefer purchasing local but often problematic with specialty bird products. Used to order Harrison's from a nearby avian vet but no longer an option. Turned out a bit of comparison revealed lower prices + free shipping.
