Product description

Some recovery and emergency cases require added versatility when it comes to delivering critical nutrition. Oxbow Critical Care Herbivore Fine Grind contains the same essential nutrition as Oxbow Critical Care Herbivore, but in a finer particle size made to flow easily through nasogastric feeding tubes as small as 5 Fr. Because of its smaller particle size, Oxbow Critical Care Herbivore Fine Grind is ideal for use with small and young patients.

Product Highlights:

  • Finer particle size than Critical Care
  • Powdered formula mixes easily to desired consistency
  • Highly versatile – easily flows through nasogastric tube and syringe
  • High in fiber; low in carbohydrates
  • Contains readily-absorbable chelated minerals and beneficial prebiotics
  • No refined sugars, artificial preservatives or simple carbohydrates
  • High digestibility and palatability
  • Contains stabilized form of Vitamin C

Indications for use

Oxbow Critical Care Herbivore Fine Grind is a premium recovery food for herbivores with poor nutritional status. This specialized formula contains all the essential nutrients of a complete diet as well as high fiber timothy hay to help support normal gut physiology and digestion. It is designed to be used through feeding tubes in addition to traditional methods. Good for rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, tortoises, iguanas, and other herbivorous species.

Administration and dosage

As a general guideline, mix 1 part Critical Care Fine Grind to 3 parts warm water. The volume of water may be adjusted to obtain optimal feeding consistency. Amounts are general guidelines and should be adjusted based on patient condition. Divide daily amount into 4-6 servings, or as indicated by your veterinarian. Critical Care Fine Grind is best utilized with feeding tubes, 5 French or larger, including nasogastric tubes. Flush the tube thoroughly with warm water after each use to prevent the product from hardening and obstructing the tube. Water should be available to the animal at all times.
