Description

Support the digestive health of your small pet with Oxbow Natural Science Papaya Support Digestive Health Small Animal Supplement. Digestive issues are not uncommon for rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas and other small furry friends, but have no fear because Oxbow is here! This chewable supplement is made with premium ingredients including papaya and pineapple. These two ingredients, are natural sources of active enzymes—papain and bromelain—which aid in the digestion of proteins. With the addition of timothy hay, this supplement is also high-fiber to further help your pal’s digestion. Simply, break the tablet in half to release the aroma and either conceal it in your pet’s food, or crush it up and sprinkle it right on top!

    My rabbits did not like these

    By on

    I was really optimistic that this would be a healthier alternative for my rabbits. Besides, the ingredients list two fruits that my rabbits love, papaya and pineapple. Wrong! My rabbits absolutely hate these supplements. I tried giving it to them in whole pill form and breaking it up into their pellets to get them to eat it. Neither option worked. Now I'm stuck with an opened bag of supplements my rabbits won't take. I guess it's back to sweetened papaya and dried pineapple that sometimes has added sugar. I'm really bummed out about this.

    1 year old rabbit and 8 year old rabbit

    By on

    I Purchased these to try out with my two rabbits( 1 years old and 8 years old), I didn’t expect them to like it at first because they’re picky eaters. The minute I open the bag and fed them one they were in love and they eat them every day no problem

    A Delicious, Great Help

    By on

    My rabbit has GI Stasis and vet said to get these. My rabbit likes them, but to ensure he eats all I give him, I've started 'piecing' them into his Critical Care, which he loves, and gobbles both down.

    DON’T GIVE UP TOO SOON !!!

    By on

    Like a lot of people are saying, my rabbit also turned his nose up at these. But with how bad he has been molting I just let them sit around until he would eat it (sometimes days) then give him another. I didn’t want to give up until I know we had really tried making these work. One day my rabbit all of a sudden decided he loves these and now acts like they are treats. During heavy molt I give one in the morning and one at night. I don’t know if they are helping but he has been going great so they definitely can’t hurt! Like with anything new, rabbits need time to get used to things and I hope other peoples rabbits can benefit from these as well! Keep trying and they will eventually give in and Like a lot of people are saying, my rabbit also turned his nose up at these.

My rabbit does this with a lot of things but if I keep trying he eventually warms up to whatever it is and in the end he actually looks forward to getting it now! :) I love Oxbow and I can’t wait to see what other new products they release soon … more

    Helps my Bunny

    By on

    I give to my bunny who has hairball issues. He won't eat on his own but if I put a little laxatone (for cats) on it he gobbles it down. He looks forward to this "treat" every morning. I have not had any issues since starting. Much easier solution to his hairball problem than what I did before.

    Rabbit & Guinea Pigs Not Enthusiastic

    By on

    Oxbow used to make: “Papaya Fruit Plus” tablets that my rabbit liked, but they were discontinued some time ago. He suffers from bouts of gastrointestinal stasis so it’s important that I use whatever preventive supplements that are available to keep his digestive tract moving. My rabbit doesn’t seem to like these, nor do my guinea pigs. I am going to keep trying, especially for my rabbit, in the hopes he’ll start eating them; they do suggest that you conceal it or crush it up and sprinkle it on their food; I had hoped I could just break it in half to “release the aroma,” that way I would be able to track their consumption better.

As other reviewers have mentioned, they are not like the other: “Oxbow Natural Science” Supplements, they are small and soft. They do make a digestive supplement, but it does not contain the papain & bromelain that especially help with GS. I already sprinkle: “Bene-Bac Plus Powder” on their fresh greens, but it does not contain papain or bromelain either. Perhaps Oxbow needs to consider reformulating these tablets to make them more palatable, as the former ones were. Since every animal has different likes/dislikes, I suppose you would have to try these for yourself to know if they'll eat them. … more

    Bunny refused these

    By on

    I love Oxbow! They are veterinarian recommended and my pets love their products. When I saw this item I was super excited about this. As soon as it arrived I offered it to my bunny who refused it. I tried hand feeding it to her and she just broke it into tiny bits. I tried other methods even making a mush out of it and nothing. I still give her a tablet with every meal hoping she'll eat it but it's always the only thing left in her bowl. She goes crazy for papaya and pineapple though. I ended up buying a papaya tree instead. I'm hopeful Oxbow can make it more palatable to bunnies.
