No substitute for veterinarian
The medicinal herbs listed here do not replace a visit to the vet, but may only be used as a support.
Medicinal plants are not only healthy in certain amounts, but can also aid in the healing of certain diseases.
Like medicines, many medicinal plants are harmful or even toxic when overdosed.
Therefore, as long as these are not expressly bird food plant declared, they must not be fed as fresh food or even in larger quantities.
