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. Our concentrated formula provides the full amount of vitamin C guinea pigs need daily. Vita-Drops are a multi-purpose and balanced supplement formulated especially for guinea pigs and contain all known essential vitamins as listed in the latest recommendations of the committee on Animal Nutrition of the National Research Council.
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.
The preferred method of using Oasis Vita-Drops is to add the concentrated liquid supplement to the guinea pig's daily drinking water (whenever possible, use a sanitary water bottle instead of an open water dish, which can be easily contaminated with debris). Guinea pigs readily drink this mixture, but if desired the vitamins may be applied directly to their food.
Directions in Water: 2 drops per ounce of drinking water: Shake or stir to mix. To insure freshness, change the water at least every 1 to 2 days.
Directions in Food: Randomly scatter 2 or 3 drops of vita-drops directly onto the surface of the food every 1 to 3 days. Check to be sure that the vitaminized food has been consumed within 24 hours. If the guinea pig refuses to eat the fortified diet, feed the usual plain diet for 3 days and try again. Guinea pigs can be creatures of habit, and may not accept the new vitaminized feed immediately. It is very important that the guinea pig not go without food by simply refusing the fortified feed.
Excess dosages should cause no ill effect. Store Oasis Vita-Drops in a cool dry place...may be refrigerated.
