Critical Care is a complete "assisted feeding" formula for herbivores that are not eating due to illness or surgery.
Whether an animal's lack of appetite is a result of illness, post surgical recovery or pain, Critical Care plays an important nutritional role in the patient's recovery program.
Forage based fiber is necessary to encourage proper microbial growth in the digestive system of small herbivores. Timothy grass hay, the main component in Critical Care, provides the proper balance of forage based fiber and soluble carbohydrates needed to support the natural microbial population in the digestive system of small herbivores.
Critical Care is the original high fiber syringe feeding formula for:.
* Rabbits * Guinea pigs * Chinchillas * Prairie Dogs * Degus * Wallabies * Iguanas * Tortoises * Waterfowl
Mix one part dry powder to 1.5 parts warm water. Various methods of administration may require more water to be added.
Feed 50cc of mixed product per kilogram of body weight, divided between 4 - 6 feedings per day, to any herbivorous mammal or reptile.
Refrigerate any unused portion after mixing and use within 24 hours. Best results are achieved when small amounts are mixed at the time of each feeding
