Default Vitamin D query

I've read the articles etc about the importance and benefits of sufficient vitamin D for the health of our budgies. Apologies if the following has already been asked, and I missed the answer. As I live in the UK and Vetafarm Soluvite D isn't available to buy here, and isn't currently available on Amazon, what would people recommend in its place? I'm hoping for a powder to add to food rather than liquid as my new budgie isn't drinking much.
Thanks

Soluvite D may not be available in shops or on Amazon but it can be purchased mail order direct from Vetafarm Australia through their international site.

Sorry I can't give you the direct link as it picks up that I am in Australia and takes me direct to the Australian site and not the International.

D3 is what you're interested in. Many of the good pelleted diets contain it. Roudybush
pellets have it. That's what I feet, along with seed. Too much vit D can also be toxic and if it's placed in the water, the birds don't have a choice and could consume more than is needed. My opinion

Thanks - I'm looking for the Soluvite-D one as is a powder and so hopefully I can control the amount consumed within the seed intake.
