Description

Emeraid Herbivore.
Developed by an expert panel including exotic animal veterinarians, emergency clinicians, and nutritionists, Emeraid Herbivore® is a high fiber, semi-elemental diet designed to meet the needs of the critically ill herbivore.

Emeraid Herbivore is a part of the Emeraid System for Exotic Animal Critical Care, which is divided into three categories: Carnivore, Herbivore, and Omnivore. By using these products singly or in combination, many different ill exotic animals can benefit nutritionally.

Available in 100-gram, 400-gram, and 2-kg pouches
Designed for herbivorous mammals including rabbits, guinea pigs, and chinchillas and herbivorous reptiles such as green iguanas and tortoises

It can also be fed in combination with other Emeraid products to a variety of species, including box turtles, geese, mice and rats, gerbils and hamsters

Powder is easily mixed with water to create a formula that can pass through tubes as small as 5-French

Emeraid Herbivore is a therapeutic diet to be used only under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian or wildlife rehabilitator.

Features and Benefits
This diet contains:
High fiber content to enhance gastrointestinal motility. The primary source of fiber is cellulose, a relatively gentle source of fiber that will not irritate the already hypersensitive gastrointestinal tract of the critically ill herbivore.
All essential amino acids, making protein more easily absorbable
High levels of arginine and glutamine to meet the needs of the debilitated patient
A highly digestible, easily absorbable blend of fats and simple carbohydrates for energy
Balanced omega 3:6 polyunsaturated fatty acids
Dietary nucleotides to provide DNA and RNA precursors

Preparation, Administration & Expiration Date
WARNING: Emeraid has been scientifically designed for extremely high digestibility. Avoid contamination. Handle product carefully. Keep dry. Use a clean, dry scoop. Do not cross contaminate with scoops used with non-Emeraid foods. Contamination can cause harmful bacterial growth.

The 400 g (3.5 oz) pouch and 2 kg (5 lb) tub come with a red scoop that has both large (1 tablespoon) and small (1 teaspoon) ends. Use the smaller end of the scoop to prepare a relatively small volume of formula. To prepare larger volumes of Emeraid, fill the large end of the scoop with powder.
Measure level scoops, and do not pack the powder. Shake dry powder to facilitate mixing.
Mix one part powder to one part hot water measuring 122°F (50°C).
Stir the mixture until smooth
Use a syringe to draw up the mixture. To minimize any risk of the tube plugging, do not load the feeding or gavage tube with formula until immediately before tube feeding.
When mixed as directed, this product will pass through a 18-gauge stainless steel feeding needle and 5-French red rubber catheters.
Feed your patient immediately whenever possible, and always within 30 minutes of food preparation.
Keep the gavage tube and syringe in very warm water 103-105°F (39-41°C) until ready to feed.
 
In the adult animal, crop or stomach volume is estimated as 30 ml/kg (3% body weight). The first feeding is often one-third to one-half of this calculated volume, however the volume and number of feedings must be adjusted based on patient species and condition.

Feed as the sole diet for 10 days or less unless directed otherwise by your veterinarian. For patients with poor weight gain or malabsorptive conditions, Emeraid can also be mixed with the regular diet to boost enterocyte function and enhance digestion (25%-30% Emeraid; 70%-75% regular diet).

Discard any leftover formula. Make formula fresh for each feeding.
Flush and clean feeding syringe.

Refrigerate Emeraid after opening. Look for the “Best Before” label on the package. The shelf life of Emeraid is approximately 1 year from the date of manufacturing. When frozen, Emeraid may be fed to patients up to 2 years past the date of expiration. Use Emeraid Herbivore within 9 months of opening.
