Oxbow Critical Care Herbivore Apple Banana

Crafted with the collaboration of top exotic veterinarians and nutritionists, Oxbow's Critical Care Herbivore Apple Banana stands as the gold standard in recovery nutrition for herbivores facing nutritional deficiencies from illness or surgery. Formulated to mimic the natural diet of small herbivores, this innovative formula contains high-fibre timothy hay alongside essential nutrients, fostering optimal gut health and digestion. Whether aiding in post-surgical recovery or supporting animals experiencing appetite loss due to illness or pain, Critical Care plays a pivotal role in the recuperative journey. Developed in response to veterinary demand at the 1999 International Conference on Exotics, it has since become the preferred choice for leading exotic animal practices worldwide, boasting a track record of successful use across various species including rabbits, guinea pigs, reptiles, and marsupials.
