Oxbow Critical Care for Herbivores 141g

This is an excellent product to help get your chinchilla back to eating. This product saved her life when she was off her food and now she is eating her normal pellets. It's easy to administer either on a spoon or through a syringe.

Wouldn't be without this product! I have a rabbit with barely any teeth so it gives her gut a boost and when she needs the dentist and her mouth is sore this is all she will take... she loves it! I once had a recently rescued rabbit who caught myxomatosis and this product kept her alive for 6 weeks while she recovered. Also I have it to hand for my guinea pigs if ever they are poorly.
