I have freaks for pigs, I swear.
A Lab person at Oxbox who helped us when my Spunky was failing terribly said to try it, when the Critical Care wasn't coming as fast as they promised it would. She gave me a few tips to try and get him to eat.
The pumkin is supposed to be really high in fiber and has some good nutrients when all else fails. She also said that adding anise to some foods will attract a not hungry piggie to eat. It is the flavoring in their most popular formula of Critical Care. ( that licorice smell ) She said something like 9 out of 10 pigs go crazy for it. She even suggested putting the pumpkin in the empty Critical Care package just to flavor it a little.
