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

  • Made with all-natural ingredients to specifically support a small animal's overall health. There are no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.

  • 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

    This is a daily staple for my guinea pigs. The local pet stores were out of this (they never seem to carry it in stock). Usually order from another website but thought I would give "Chewy" a chance. It came pretty fast so I'll use them again.

  • Great treat for guinea pigs

    By on

    I give 1/2 tablet to each guinea pig each morning. They love this and take it like a treat! I am glad that they love it and it gives me piece of mind because it’s a healthy snack.

  • By these for peace of mind

    By on

    I don't have anything bad to say about this product. My 2 Guineas eat these just fine & seem to like them. I can't say I have seen any real changes in my guineas that would make me think these tablets are doing anything special for them (hence the 4 stars) but like any vitamin supplement you buy these for the peace of mind that you're doing the best you can for your animal. Also, not a big deal but the packaging looks a little different it wasn't in a plastic bottle but in a reseal able plastic bag.

  • Super Snacks!

    By on

    My guinea pig loves these little biscuits! She gets so excited whenever I grab the bag. I read using liquid vitamins isnt always the best option for a small animal, so I switched to these tabs, and she absolutely loves them! Im glad I know shes getting all the vitamin C she needs.

  • Amazing product

    By on

    My two guinea pigs LOVE these tablets. They eat them as soon as they are dropped in the cage. I love the fact that they only need to eat one of these a day and they're good on their Vitamin C.

    At first our piggies didn’t like these but after a few days they recognize the sound of the packaging when we open it and come running and squeaking.

  • Older piggies love them!

    By on

    After reading the other reviews I decided to purchase these to give to my boys. I have 2 males about 7 years old. I can't always get them fresh veggies and decided to start giving them a supplement to make sure that they are getting the amount of vitamin C. I figured that they would turn there noses up as they do with some treats but so far over the last week they have taken right out of my hand with no issues. They even get for them if I forget to give it to them while giving them food at night. 2 thumbs up from these older piggies!

  • Love them!

    By on

    My guinea pig loves these. He gets one every morning and right when he hears me wake up he is standing at the door of his cage waiting for me to give him his morning "treat"! Really happy with these vitamins.
