Critical Care is a complete "assisted feeding" formula for herbivores that are not eating due to illness or surgery.

Whether an animal's lack of appetite is a result of illness, post surgical recovery or pain, Critical Care plays an important nutritional role in the patient's recovery program.

Timothy grass hay, the main component in Critical Care, provides the proper balance of forage based fibre and soluble carbohydrates needed to support the natural microbial population in the digestive system of small herbivores.

Critical Care can be frozen and stored in ziplock bags for up to 6 months once mixed. To use after freezing, thaw at room temperature and add water. Dry Critical Care can also be frozen to extend shelf life by up to 6 months.

Available in single 36g sachets, 14 x 36g sachets (1 box), 100g sachets, 454g sachets. Also available in a finer grind - please see Critical care Fine Grind (separate listing).

Please Note: Veterinary advice should always be sought in the case of an animal suspected as being unwell. This product is designed to help in the recovery of a sick animal and is not designed to cure an illness. It should always be administered by a competent individual under the guidance of a qualified veterinarian.

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.
