Description

Provide essential Vitamin C to support your small pet's overall health with Oxbow Natural Science Vitamin C Small Animal Supplement. Like humans, Guinea Pigs cannot produce Vitamin C on their own and rely on their diet for this essential vitamin. Without it, Guinea Pigs can develop a condition that in humans is known as scurvy. This condition can cause lethargy, weight loss, poor tooth development and nasal discharge. Oxbow Natural Science Vitamin C Small Animal Supplement is a hay-based, high-fiber supplement containing the essential stabilized Vitamin C Guinea Pigs need to stay healthy. Other small pets can benefit from this supplement during times of stress, illness or recovery. Along with Vitamin C, it contains timothy grass, barley flour and oat grout flour for fiber and flax seed meal for protein. Feed rabbits, Guinea Pigs and chinchillas 1 tab a day and rats ¼ tab a day.

Key Benefits
  • Provides essential Vitamin C and prevents scurvy in Guinea Pigs. This supplement will help strengthen your pet's immune system.
  • Formulated to relieve stress in other small pets and while also aiding in recovery.
  • Produced with a hay-based formula, this product is high in fiber which will help support an overall healthier system.
  • Made with all-natural ingredients to specifically support a small animal's overall health. There are no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.
  • Perfect for small animals like Guinea Pigs, rabbits, and chinchillas.
Precautions

When adding supplements to your pet's diet, always consult your veterinarian.

  • Overall, they're great to have on hand!

    By on

    So this is my first month in Chewy.com's "Influencer" program and I got Oxbow Vitamin C tabs. The upside to these is they store well in the resealable bag they come in and they're in a form that's easy for guinea pigs to eat. Guinea pigs are generally getting enough vitamin C in their pellet food and fresh veggies but I do like to offer extra to pregnant or nursing piggies. The drawbacks are that the tablets are hard to break in half if you want to use half a tab or less and only about 50-60% of my guinea pigs really like them. So some piggies will pick them up quickly and hog them, and in other cages I'll find the whole tablet still there from a day or two ago.

  • Great stuff but my guinea pig hates it

    By on

    I bought these for times when my guinea pig may not have access to veggies with vitamin c between grocery visits or during times when she is under the weather, but she hates them. Man, they’re great on paper, but she just throws them into her litter pan and doesn’t look at them ever again. Lol. In fact, she hates all the vitamins and treats I got for her, so I can’t fault the product for her pickiness! Honestly, I’d give it one star based on the fact that she won’t consume it, but I know other animals that have loved it and it has done them so much good.

    Two of my four Chinchillas like these, the others are just fussy. But it helped my smaller and younger chinchilla up her immune system and start looking healthy after coming from a not so healthy home. She looks amazing now and healthy as can be!

  • 6 Buns Give 5 Stars

    By on

    All 6 buns L-O-V-E these and stand up for them. 2 were picky at first, 4 loved them right away. Every day each bun gets 4 tabs ~ Multivitamin, C, Digestive, Urinary (for Calcium buildup). 2 in AM, 2 in PM or spread thru the day. 3 buns are totally healthy, 3 have health issues ~ 1 digestive, 1 snuffles, 1 head tilt. Since using these, there is significant improvement (and preventive for other 3). The snuffles discharge less and the guy with head tilt is stronger, stands better. I'd rather spend $ on something they love that keeps them healthy or gets them healthier than going to the vet and using meds. They also get noni juice, Manuka honey and Grapefruit seed extract plus filtered All 6 buns L-O-V-E these and stand up for them. 2 were picky at first, 4 loved them right away.

So only 4 get Joint Support on occassion. The Skin and Hair tabs contain canola oil so I won't buy them again. I'd totally recommend the Multi and C Tabs daily for any Bun. Digestive is important to have on hand for warding off stasis. Calcium buildup shows up as a white sludge in the litter box. Hoping Urinary tab helps this as 5 are siblings and their healthy mom died suddenly from a calcium block. That's why I'M using all these daily...to PREVENT a problem. With 6...1 adopted and 5 born at home, it's not always easy to see a problem immediately. OXBOW tabs give me Peace of Mind, the buns LOVE them and Hopefully will keep them as Healthy as Happy. BTW All my buns also get Oxbow pellets and hay. … more

  • My guinea pig loves them!

    By on

    I have a guinea pig who didn't really get into eating her oranges and so I was worried that she would end up with a Vitamin C deficiency all because she wouldn't eat her oranges. I got her two bags of these in hopes that she would get the Vitamin C that she needed and she eats this stuff like there's no tomorrow! I am so very satisfied with this product and would highly recommend this to any guinea pig owner who needs to get their guinea pig started on some Vitamin C.

  • Our Guinea Pig Loves This

    By on

    Just started using this instead of putting a liquid vitamin C, in our guinea pig's water bottle.Seems to be a little hard,and our guinea pig seems to have a hard time chewing/swallowing it,so we tried what other customers reccommended was to wet down the piece with water before giving it to our guinea pig.This seems to help and works fine,He's now able to chew /swallow it easily and loves eating it,We would recommend it.

  • Great treat!

    By on

    I have been on the fence about buying this for. While and I finally decide to try it. I moved and one of my chins was stressing out from it. This treat helps reduce stress and I definitely works! After a week of giving her this treat i noticed a huge change in her behaviour is she is no longer stressing out. Love oxbow!!
