Product Information

Oxbow Critical Care for Herbivores is a complete “assisted feeding” formula for herbivores that are not eating due to illness or surgery. Whether an animal’s lack of appetite is a result of illness, post surgical recovery or pain, Oxbow’s Critical Care plays an important nutritional role in the patient’s recovery program.

Oxbow Critical Care for Herbivores should only be administered on the advice of a veterinarian. Inappetence is normally a secondary symptom of an underlying health problem. Due to the likely compromised health of animals that are not eating, Critical Care® for Herbivores is to be used under the supervision of a veterinarian and the guidance of Oxbow. For more information call your local vet and visit http://www.oxbowaustralia.com/ 

Forage based fibre is necessary to encourage proper microbial growth in the digestive system of small herbivores. Timothy grass hay, the main component in Critical Care, provides the proper balance of forage based fibre and soluble carbohydrates needed to support the natural microbial population in the digestive system.  For a  rabbit or guinea pig, the product contains all the essential nutrients of a complete diet.

Developed in response to veterinary requests for a forage-based, syringe-feeding formula at the 1999 International Conference on Exotics, Oxbow’s Critical Care is now the product of choice for leading exotic animal practices around the globe. It has been successfully used in numerous species including: rabbits, guinea pigs, herbivorous reptiles, water fowl, wallabies, kangaroos, alpaca, hippopotamus, giant tortoise, wombats, possums and koalas.



Ask your vet for advice on feeding. Mix one part dry powder to 2 parts warm water. Various methods of administration may require more water to be added.

For herbivorous mammals: mix 3 tablespoons of dry product per kg of body weight daily (note: wombats require less); divide into 4-6 feedings per day.   Often it is best to first divide the dry powder into the number of desired meals for the day and then add water to each meal as required.

For herbivorous reptiles: use 1.5 tablespoons of dry product per kg of body weight daily.  Again, divide into 4-6 feedings per day.

For omnivores: visit http://www.oxbowaustralia.com/specialised-animal-nutrition/critical-care-for-herbivores/ for more information.

Refrigerate any unused portion after mixing and use within 24 hours.  Best results are achieved when small amounts are mixed at the time of each feeding.
