Product description

Oxbow Natural Science Vitamin C supplement (60 count) for Guinea Pigs and other animals who are not capable of producing their own Vitamin C. This tasty treat is a hay-based, high-fiber supplement containing the essential stabilized vitamin C that guinea pigs need, and other animals may benefit from during times of stress, illness or recovery.

Vitamin C or ascorbic acid deficiency is the most common and most preventable disease in guinea pigs. Adults must be supplemented with at least 10 mg of Vitamin C for every kilogram of body weight. Pregnant, nursing and growing guinea pigs need at least 30 mg of Vitamin C for every kilogram of body weight.

Insufficient Vitamin C intake leads to a condition known as scurvy. Clinical signs of Vitamin C or ascorbic acid deficiency may include rough coat, anorexia, diarrhea, bleeding from the gums, lameness and pain. Delayed wound healing and increased susceptibility to bacterial infections may also occur.

Feeding Directions
Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, Chinchillas All Weights 1 tab per day

For all other species, consult Oxbow or your veterinarian. When adding supplements to your pet's diet, always consult your veterinarian.
