Hello all! I have recently adopted a lovely older cockatiel from a less-than-ideal situation. Due to her age and an all-seed diet, she has(thankfully only) a minor liver deficiency, she will need to have a daily supplement (around .3ml) indefinitely.

Does anyone have a specific food that they use for administering medications or supplements?

I have used bread or boiled egg in the past for temporary medications, but would like something a bit healthier for use long-term.

also a photo of the scraggly old lady (in a temporary cage) as tax. IMG_6464.jpeg
