Trying to come up with something they will eat that will give enough C to keep them healthy. They look great now, so maybe the pellets are enough? I have always supplemented all my pigs with a bit of red pepper daily and any other greens they got that had it and it's always been fine.
Ok, gotta run. TIA for any info. I will make a point of checking back and trying to update.

Otherwise, a good quality, fortified pellet really should be enough. Sometimes my guys get the little Oxbow Vitamin C biscuits as a treat.

Lacey loved the Oxbow wafers. She would grab them and run into a hidey so no one could take it away from her. That was her favorite treat. Gidget would nibble the edges, drop it and forget it. So I mixed vitamin C drops, water and a little CC and offered a syringe every day. Most days she would take the whole syringe (1 ml.) Millie kind of likes the vitamin C wafer if I hold it for her. She likes it better if I put a few drops of water on it first, but it's not her favorite.
I think at one point I tried a few drops of apple juice or watermelon juice on the wafers, and Gidget liked that for a while, but then lost interest.

I just spritz it on lettuce or other veggies and it seems to work really well. The downside is that it's hard to know precisely how much vitamin C they're getting in a spritz, but if you're supplementing more as a preventive vs. treating scurvy, it should be adequate.
ItsaZoo-only one of these monsters like the wafers. I wish they both did, it would be so easy. I did think of syringing part of a vitamin c tablet, maybe that might be good too.
Sef-Hmmm, never saw that before. I think along with other stuff, this might just be a good thing. IF they eat the vegs! It is certainly worth a try. Thanks!
