- Product Details
Critical Care Formula (CCF) has been developed for the nutritional support of birds, mammals, and reptiles whose metabolism may be disturbed, helping them to develop and maintain a healthy body for a happy life.
CCF is a complementary feed energy supplement for reptiles, birds, and small animals. It is comprised of a unique blend of energy supplying dextrose with protein concentrate, which can be used in all species in instances such as loss of appetite, starvation, surgery, and periods of recovery.
The formulation is a mixture of selected short chain maltodextrins (derived from corn starch) and a protein concentrate supplemented with amino acids. It has great benefits over commonly used liquid formulations of easily digestible carbohydrates in that it is a powder and can be stored until a small amount is needed. CCF in powder form remains stable for months (provided that the container is sealed) and provides a suitable protein source which counters the hypoproteinaemic states of catabolism, which in birds especially is a major problem.
CCF Critical Care Formula should be used when the animal is not eating and should be made up freshly each time.
