The starting point is improving health of pigeons by means of supplying food supplements. These natural nutritious substances contribute to an optimal health. In moulting-, breedingand racing periods, these supplements improve the wellbeing and the condition of the pigeons and increase performances. These food supplements are no veterinary medicinal products, but just additives that can help to prevent or reduce antibiotics and chemotherapeutics. That decreases the chance for outbreaks of deceases.
In (Western) Europe a few veterinaries and clinics seriously focus on medical guidance of pigeons. Not many veterinarians consider pigeon sport as one of the most fascinating aspects of their profession. When necessary, medication is prescribed, it is however questionable if they meet up to the needs of modern pigeon sport.
Now a days medications are still supplied based on doses and traditions from the Seventies and Eighties of the previous century. However, in the meantime scientific insights concerning infections caused by bacteria’s, viruses and parasites are strongly improved! For example, adjusted dosages are required for resistance of bacteria’s and protozoans.
Most veterinarians orientate mainly on regular veterinary science when we talk about the medical supervision of the pigeon sport. In case of illnesses, mostly a medicine is prescribed, for example a vermifuge or an antibiotic; purpose is to kill the pathogenic agent as soon as possible. Naturally we fully support this ambition to eliminate the cause of much misery as soon as possible.
Most veterinarians primarily orientate on regular veterinary science when we talk about medical supervision of the pigeon sport. The healing of sick animals is the focus point. In case of illness a medicine is usually prescribed, for example a vermifuge or an antibiotic agent, with the aim of killing the pathogenic agent as quickly as possible. Naturally we fully support this ambition to eliminate the cause of much misery as soon as possible.
However we take supervision of pigeon sport one step beyond. The last 35 years Diergeneeskundig Centrum Beek searched for new ways that contribute to the general, natural resistance of pigeons. For example, they can process the negative effects of an infection faster. The principle op the BonyFarma food supplements is creating an environment that optimally supports the natural resistance and therefore minimizes the chance for illnesses. In the modern pigeon racing, the margins between winning and losing are very small. It is therefore of the biggest importance to leave nothing to chance.
We stay as close to nature as possible and we fully use the many possibilities offered to us by nature. That is why the BonyFarma products are mostly based on a variety and combination of nutritious substances and herbs that support the immune system, improve bronchial tubes and intestinal flora and maximize performances.
In short, our philosophy towards pigeon racing is a combination of regular medical science (medicines) and a natural approach (herbs).
Basic element in the natural approach of pigeon racing is formed by Bony S.G.R., a resistance-drink and also acidifying herbal-drink.
Consistent and regulary supplying Bony S.G.R., strongly contributes to (young) pigeons rising healthier, more powerful and generally in need of less medication. Their immune system develops much better because they do meet ‘childhood illnesses’ but show none of the symptoms. Because of that they need less energy to fight these illnesses. That energy they need for optimal development towards strong pigeons in top condition!
The BonyFarma product line contains several food supplements that support the health of pigeons in a natural way! Generally known now are the Bony Omega 3 Flight Oil, Bony Omega 3 Flight Oil Octa 20.000 with octacosanol, Bony Omega 3 Nucleovit with nucleotides, Bony Omega 3 Breeding Oil with a high content of EPA and DHA and Bony Omega Fly Oil 2.0.
The BonyFarma food supplements are developed to support healthy pigeons. During moulting, breeding and racing season they improve the wellbeing and the condition of the pigeons. Resulting in better performances.
However, function of the supplements is not to hide deeper causes. In case of illnesses a specific treatment must result in curing. Food supplements can then be useful to stimulate recovery by improving health and supporting the own immune system of the pigeon.
