Companion mammals are living longer, healthier lives because of improvements in veterinary care, husbandry and nutrition. With this longevity comes an increase in chronic health conditions that need long-term support. Natural Science's powerful supplements for small pets address these issues:

Vitamin C supplement is a hay-based, high-fiber supplement containing the essential stabilized Vitamin C that guinea pigs need. Its antioxidant properties also help support the immune system of other small pets during times of stress, illness, or recovery.

Senior Support contains long-strand fiber and various beneficial ingredients to support the overall wellness of senior pets. Ginkgo Biloba is an anti-inflammatory agent and helps enhance cognitive function. Milk Thistle is antioxidative and helps protect the liver, while Ginger Root supports the circulatory system.

Skin and Coat contains long-strand fiber and various beneficial ingredients to support skin and coat health in small pets, such as the red palm oil, chamomile, and canola oil.

Digestive Support, created to maintain healthy digestion, so important for small pets. Ingredients in this supplement include chicory root, ginger root, and fenugreek seed.

Joint Support, formulated for animals advanced in age, or who need cartilage and joint support. It contains ingredients to support your pet's aging joints, like glucosamine, yucca, turmeric, and ginger root.

Urinary Support, designed to support a healthy urinary system in your small pets, another especially important concern in small pet health. Included in its ingredient list are cranberry, dandelion leaf, astralagus root, and pumpkin seed.

Multi-vitamin formula, to give small pets the vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids that they may be missing in your small pet's diet, especially if they eat only hay and greens. Ingredients for overall wellness include vitamins A, C, D, E, and B-Complex. Also includes flaxseed, which contains the powerful Omega-3 fatty acid, DHA.

From Oxbow Animal Health: Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I feed more than one kind of Natural Science supplement at the same time?
Yes, but be sure to follow the feeding directions at all times and do not exceed the daily-recommended amount of any Natural Science supplement. Overall, it's a good idea to consult with your veterinarian before adding supplements to your pet's diet.

How do I know if my pet needs a supplement?
Some of the most common ailments veterinarians see in small animals are related to digestive, urinary, joint, and immune system issues. If you have a pet with chronic or recurring issues in these areas, a supplement given daily may help improve and maintain his health and wellness. If you are unsure, consult with your veterinarian to decide if adding a supplement is the right choice for your pet.

Do I need to feed Natural Science foods in order to use the supplements, or vice versa?
Natural Science foods and supplements are not dependent on each other to be effective - you can feed Natural Science foods and not use the supplements, or you can feed the supplements and not use the foods. Natural Science supplements can be used with any nutritionally correct fortified food, although we recommend feeding them with one of Oxbow's foods. The Natural Science foods are nutritionally complete on their own and contain all of the vitamins and minerals required by adult rabbits and guinea pigs.
