- Thanks for the Memories
A lady I pigsat for crushed up her tablets and sprinkled them on fav foods, like lettuce. You could try that, too.
I still prefer not to supplement as long as the pig is healthy and eating a varied diet, including plenty of high C veggies and fruits.
- I GAVE, dammit!
Mine love most of the high Vit C veggies, especially red bell pepper. Parsley, Cilantro and Dandelion greens are very popular as well. It´s healthier and cheaper to supplement with the fresh veggies.
The most popular C for my guys has been the Safeway Generic childrens chewable C. Oxbow C treats went over here like a lead baloon but many pigs seem to like those.
Like people, they each have their own likes and dislikes.
I had a Houdini pig. Is yours an escape artist?
Hope this helps
To Lisam & Julian: Yes, Houdini is an escape artist. Before I built my C & C cage I had him in a plastic store-bought cage with a wire cage perimeter similar to the cubes & he twice climbed out of the plastic part. Fortunately, he didn´t get too far b/c the wire part kept him fenced in. While I was working on the corroplast part of the new cage I let him run around in the cube part & he snuck through one of the wire grids. He also went through a cardboard toilet paper tube. As you can see, he is aptly named!
Yogurt drops aren´t too popular around here. Most people believe they have too much sugar and are not a good treat for cavies, even though some of them are marketed for gps.
