Onder de naam ZOO Specialties wordt een speciaal assortiment van voeders voor dierentuindieren op de markt gebracht. Bij de samenstelling van de voeders is vooral gelet op de voeding van het dier in zijn natuurlijke leefomgeving. Daarnaast is de in de literatuur bekende voedingsbehoefte van het desbetreffende dier als leidraad gebruikt. Zo ontstonden per diersoort voeders die uitstekend aansluiten bij het unieke voedingspatroon van de soort. De voeding is zeer gevarieerd van samenstelling en zorgt voor het opbouwen en onderhouden van een goede conditie.

Voeding van muis tot olifant. Het is met name dit assortiment Zoo Specialties, dat laat zien dat daarmee geen woord teveel is gezegd. Kasper Faunafood kan deze voeders op de markt brengen omdat er binnen het bedrijf een jarenlange kennis is opgebouwd voor wat betreft specifieke voedingseisen. Wilt u meer weten neem dan contact met ons op, wij vertellen u graag meer dan we op deze beperkte ruimte kwijt kunnen.

In many zoos and sea aquaria, the daily portion of fish that fish-eating animals get was first frozen. In fish that was frozen and then defrosted enzymes and oxidants that were active are associated with the decomposition of dead animals. This means the effectiveness of part of the supply of vitamins in the fish is lost. This can be easily compensated for and specifically targeted by adding Akwavit tablets behind the gills or into the mouth of the fish that are being used to feed the animals.

Where possible, feed the Akwavit products half an hour to one hour prior to the normal feeding time to enable better vitamin absorption.

The table below shows the recommended dose for the different kinds of fish-eating animals.

The Akwavit range includes following products; all of them provide in the essential vitamin needs of the specific species.

Akwafit Fish-eating Animals
Feed supplement for fish-eating animals. Akwavit Fish-eating Animals is a daily supplement specially developed for various fisheating animals such as penguins, ibises, and pelicans. Akwavit Fish-eating Animals contains all the necessary vitamins and minerals in the proper proportions. Akwavit fish-eating Animals contains a limited amount of vitamin A and in addition beta-carotene as pro-vitamin A. Betacarotene is converted into Vitamin A as the animal requires.

High levels of thiamine help prevent thiamine deficiency. This is particularly important when feeding the animals dead fish, as decomposition enzymes are present that specifically target thiamine. Thiamine must be provided in the feed every day, as it compensates for any lack of the vitamin and so prevents any attack on the central nervous system.

The tablets have a dividing line, making it easy to provide a half dose.

Akwavit Dolphins
Feed supplement specially developed for dolphins. It contains a balanced level of vitamins and minerals. Currently it does not contain vitamin A. This is because research has shown that levels of vitamin A in the blood are naturally lower in the wild than in captivity. Vitamin E has been reduced to avoid any overdose. Thiamine vitamin B1 is likewise sufficient for lactating dolphins. In addition, it contains magnesium needed to develop healthy bones and to play its role in the muscular system and in the nervous system.

The tablets have a dividing line, making it easy to provide a half dose.

Akwavit Pinnipeds
Feed supplement specially developed for pinnipeds, such as seals, robs, sea lions and walruses. Akwavit Pinnipeds contains a balanced level of vitamins and minerals along with natural antioxidants. In the form of pro-vitamin A, it contains beta-carotine. This is then turned into vitamin A as the animal requires. High thiamine vitamin B1 content helps prevent thiamine deficiency.

Akwavit Pinnipeds contains various natural antioxidants: grapeseed extract, lutein, zeaxanthine and alpha lipids. These antioxidants are linked to various health aspects for finfooted animals and contribute towards making vitamin E and C more effective.

Current focus on health aspects includes:

  • UV-induced damage to lens and skin
  • Support for the wound-healing process and protection against adverse reactions to infection
  • Reduction in physical complaints due to the ageing process

The tablets have a dividing line, making it easy to provide a half dose.

Akwavit Shark
Feed supplement specially developed for elasmobranch fish-types such as sharks and rays. It contains a balanced level of vitamins and minerals.

Akwavit Shark contains only limited amounts of vitamin A as well as beta-carotin in the form of pro-vitamin A. Beta-carotin is transformed into vitamin A as the animal requires.

The tablets have a dividing line, making it easy to provide a half dose.
