Developed in collaboration with leading exotic animal veterinarians and nutritionists, Critical Care is the industry standard for recovery nutrition for herbivores with poor nutritional status resulting from disease or surgery.
Critical Care contains all the essential nutrients of a complete diet, as well as fiber-rich Timothy Hay for digestive health and proper gut physiology. Critical Care was the first such product and continues to be the standard in emergency care for small herbivores. It does not matter if the animal’s lack of appetite is due to illness, post-operative convalescence or pain, Critical Care plays an important nutritional role within the “patient” recovery program.
Critical Care is the original high-fiber nutritional formula for:
Form: Powder in suspension
Packaging: 1.05 ounces (30 grams) bag – 5 ounces (141 grams) bag – 1 pound (454 grams) bag
Lack of appetite is usually a secondary symptom of a disease. Due to the likelihood that the animal’s lack of appetite is due to a health disorder, Critical Care must be used under the supervision of a veterinarian.
Mix one part of dry powder with 1.5 parts of warm water. Various methods of administration may require the addition of a higher amount of water. Give 50cc of mixed product for every kilogram of body weight every day, divided between 4-6 meals, to any mammal or herbivorous reptile.
