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 vitamins essential for normal growth, development, good coat condition and overall health. OASIS VITA-DROPS for GUINEA PIGS are a multi-purpose and balanced supplement formulated especially for rabbits and contain all known essential vitamins as listed in the latest recommendations of the Committee on Animal Nutrition of the National Research Council.
WHY DO GUINEA PIGS NEED VITA-DROPS EVERY DAY?
OASIS VITA-DROPS for GUINEA PIGS is the only formula to provide the full amount of vitamin C guinea pigs (cavies) need daily. Like humans guinea pigs cannot make the vitamin C required to prevent illness – specifically scurvy. The vitamin C humans and guinea pigs need must be consumed daily as part of our regular diets. Vitamin C is an easily oxidized vitamin that will be destroyed by direct sunlight or mere passage of time – 60 days is about the limit unless the vitamin C has been stabilized. Oasis uses only high-grade stabilized vitamin C in our Vita-Drop Focus-Formulas.
HOW MUCH VITAMIN C DOES A GUINEA PIG NEED?
An adult guinea pig will drink about 4 ounces of water per day – a bit more during warm weather and a bit less during cold winter months. At that rate Oasis Vita-Drops provide 10mg of vitamin C daily. This is the amount agreed upon by guinea pig experts and breeders. Younger smaller animals will consume less water – but also require less vitamin C. The vitamin C requirements self-adjust as the guinea pig grows and consumes more water.
