Description

This item has been MANUFACTURER DISCONTINUED. We recommend trying Zinpro ProCare ZN (2 lbs)

Daily C Stabilized Vitamin C Supplement lets you eliminate the guesswork when it comes to making sure your pet receives a guaranteed, stabilized amount of vitamin C.

Unlike the vitamin C in vitamin drops, which deteriorates and may make an animalís drinking water unpalatable, Daily C is a veterinarian recommended, great tasting, stabilized form of vitamin C for guinea pigs as well as other animals that may need a supplement due to stress. Daily C provides pet owners a way to responsibly prevent disease and help lengthen the lives of their pets.

    What is calcium ascorbate? Calcium ascorbate is a mineral salt that is used as the stabilized Vitamin C source in Daily C. Calcium ascorbate provides a buffered form of Vitamin C, which means it is less acidic and more absorbable.

    What if my guinea pig won't take the tablet? Guinea pigs are sometimes suspicious and cautious of new foods. As with any new taste, some training may need to be implemented before your guinea pig learns to love the taste of Daily C. With a little attention, your guinea pig will soon begin to beg for Daily C on a daily basis.

    Is it okay to give supplements to a sick animal? Under a veterinarian's guidance, Oxbow treats can be used to ease sick or injured animals back into a regular eating routine. Oxbow supplements (which animals think are treats) also can help prevent illness. Daily C, for example, prevents Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) deficiency in guinea pigs, which can cause scurvy, anorexia, diarrhea, and lameness among other things.

    What is the benefit of supplying Vitamin C in a tablet? The Vitamin C found in Oxbow Daily C tablets is more stable than the variety added to water. Vitamin C loses its potency when added to water. Approximately only 20% of the Vitamin C sources added to water still remain after a period of 8 hours. Guinea pigs may refuse or reduce the amount of water due to the taste of the Vitamin C, which may lead to other health problems. Feeding a tablet guarantees that pets receive the entire stabilized amount of Vitamin C necessary for optimum health.

    Easy to give, tasty supplement by Jackie10/12/2011

    My Guinea Pigs both really enjoy their Daily C tablets, the tablets are easy to break in half so they fit in my pigs' mouths easier and they love the taste.

    Vita C by Carmel from Medford, WI05/16/2014

    My sweet little guinea pig chews this tablet so well. She shunned at it until I put her on a strict diet for an adult guinea gal and now she looks at it as a treat. Well worth it :)

    by lazydaze2209/11/2013

    I foster guinea pigs for a rescue and have one of my own. So far only one of them will eat these, but she takes it like a treat. The rest still prefer the liquid in a syringe. They are fed an excellent diet, so this was just to reassure myself they are getting enough vit c. The healthy ones get 1/4tab and the ill ones get 1/2tab. This would have been a better value if they liked it, and I trust Oxbow's quality.

    Didn't work by Thunders Mom08/13/2014

    My guinea pig won't touch the pills and I bought 2 bottles. A complete waste of money. Had to go back to the vita-drops in the water.

    if you are searching only vitamin c, i think is good product

    Great Way to Give Extra C by Luvmypets2 from West Chester, PA05/17/2014

    Over the years my 3 guinea pigs have all taken to eating these tablets. I know they are getting an extra boost of Vitamin C which is so important to their overall health. The Vitamin C treats have been hit or miss with them and if I added C to their water they wouldn't drink it. Now I just put a tablet in their bowls each day and they eat them up like candy. Couldn't be any easier.

    huge help by critter lover01/03/2013

    my 10yr old rabbit is eating these and so are my guinea pigs, it has definately helped with staving off the progression of cateracts.
