Dr Greg Harrison developed Harrison’s in the mid 1980’s. He only used Organic ingredients in his products, that have been certified by the USDA (US Department of Agriculture.)
Dr Harrison has worked with animals all his life. He grew up in a farming community in Iowa and then earned a degree in Veterinary Medicine. He opened a small veterinary practice in Florida, before moving onto working in a zoo and small animal park as a consultant.
Greg owned over 150 Parrots and wanted to develop a better diet for them. Together with other avian vets he created the very first Organic complete food for Parrots. Dr Harrison remains the main developer of the products and uses his 30+ years of experience to produce the finest food for Parrots. Greg believes the most important thing owners can do for their Parrots is to feed them properly.
Harrison’s Complete Food
The complete foods provide your Parrot with balanced nutrition. This means your bird doesn’t need to eat anything else whilst on the diet. Harrison’s food contains no artificial preservatives. Before changing a bird’s diet though, we recommend you seek the advice of an avian vet.
The Harrison’s High Potency Coarse Food is available in a 1lb, 5lb and 25lb bag. The ingredients are all whole grain and are suitable for human consumption. High potency food should by owners during stressful periods in your bird’s life, such as wearing, illness and breeding.
It could also be used as the main diet for African Greys and Large Macaws because of their increased nutritional requirements.
