Oxbow Critical Care Herbivore with natural flavour Anise is a nutritionally-complete, versatile assist-feeding formula designed to support exotic pets unwilling or unable to eat enough food on their own. With the help of veterinarians and nutritionists, Critical Care is the best recovery nutrition after an illness or surgery. Critical Care Herbivore Anise is for rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, tortoises, iguanas and other herbivorous species. Critical Care Herbivore contains the key ingredient high-fibre Timothy hay to support proper GI tract and digestion.

Critical Care products can be eaten directly from a dish, but for most, hand or syringe feeding is the best option. Animals are handfed until they are able to eat on their own. Handfeeding can be very stressful for both owner and pet; be calm and patient through the process. Whether your pet requires syringe feeding or prefers eating Critical Care on its own, be sure to follow your veterinarian’s instructions to help your pet recover and return to health as quickly as possible.

Oxbow Critical Care Herbivore Anise is available in packets of 36 g, 141 g and 454 g.
