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 Fine Grind comes in a 100 g pack.
