Product DescriptionOasis Vita-Drops Concentrated High Potency Pure C for Guinea Pigs
Oasis Vita-Drops for guinea pigs are a convenient way to assure your guinea pigs (also known as cavies) are receiving their daily intake of vitamin C. Guinea pigs, like humans, cannot manufacture their own vitamin C internally and must consume a fresh supply daily. Consumption of vitamin C each and every day is vital to promote normal growth and development and prevent the disease known as scurvy. This water soluble vitamin concentrate provides the 25 mg that all guinea pigs need daily to prevent scurvy. Oasis Vita-Drops Pure Vitamin C is formulated using the highest quality stabilized vitamin C possible, and is based on a 25 mg daily dose.
The average adult guinea pig weighs approximately 2 - 2.5 lbs and drinks 4 ounces of water per day. At this rate - using 2 drops of Oasis Vita-Drops pure vitamin C per ounce of water - the Vita-Drops mixture yields 25 mg of vitamin C. Any unused vitamin C is excreted in the urine.
Normal healthy guinea pigs of all ages & sizes = 25 mg (8 drops of Vita-Drops Pure C) daily.
Pregnant or nursing guinea pigs = 37.5 mg (12 drops of Vita-Drops Pure C) daily.
Guinea pigs showing signs of stress or scurvy = 50 mg (16 drops of Vita-Drops Pure C) daily.
Mega-dose for guinea pigs with deficiency/scurvy = 100 mg (32 drops of Vita-Drops Pure C) daily.
For use with drinking water: Use a sanitary water bottle instead of an open water dish which can be easily contaminated.
