How to:

Make Critical Care

Critical care is a nutritionally complete formula designed for herbivores made by Oxbow. We recommend Critical Care is used to supplement feed patients with illness or who are recovering from surgery.

STEP ONE 

Prepare everything you need before getting started.

  • Spoon for mixing

  • Catheter Tip Syringe 

  • Bowl

  • Water

  • Critical Care

STEP TWO

Add the powdered Critical Care and water in a 1:2 ratio

HINT..

Use warm water

Allow the mix to set, it will thicken a lot.

STEP THREE 

Mix the Critical Care and water. 

The consistency should resemble a sloppy porridge.

Suck the mix up with the syringe

OR

Remove the plunger and use a spoon to scoop the mix into the syringe hub

STEP FOUR

You are ready to syringe feed your bunny!

Your bag of Critical Care can be kept in the freezer for 12 months once opened.

We recommend you keep any left over wet mixture in the fridge for no longer then 24 hours. Adding warm water to a refrigerated mix can make it more palatable for your bunny.
