Critical Care Formula (CCF)
CCF Critical Care Formula is a complementary feed for reptiles, birds and mammals. It comprises of a unique blend of energy supplying glucose with protein concentrate, and can be used in all species.
CCF has been developed for the nutritional support of birds, mammals and reptiles whose metabolism may be disturbed, 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. CCF should be made up freshly each time, 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 also provides a suitable protein source which counters the hypoproteinaemic states of catabolism, which in birds especially is a major problem.
Instructions for use: For administering directly CCF can be mixed at a rate of 1 scoop (5ml) plus 3-5 scoops of water. Mammals: Use 1 scoop per 250g of animal being supplemented per day, usually split between 2-3 feeds.
As a simple supplement for animals needing extra energy, CCF can be added to the drinking water at a rate of 1 scoop per 200ml. For use in any other exotic species please contact our customer service team.
