Did you know that guinea pigs cannot produce vitamin C on their own?
Vitamin C is required for many processes in the body such as collagen production (a
component in bones, skin, ligaments and blood vessels) and immune system maintenance. Guinea pigs cannot produce their own vitamin C and must consume it in their diet. Scurvy is a nutritional disease caused by a deficiency of vitamin C in the diet. Symptoms of scurvy may include loss of appetite, depression, lameness, poor coat condition, sore joints, and nasal discharge. Prevention of scurvy is simple by providing the correct levels of vitamin C. Vita-C Tablets have been formulated to supplement the diet of guinea pigs with vitamin C as well as a range of other vitamins. Vita-C Tablets are easily added to water and maintains the required amount of vitamin C throughout the day. Vitamin C supplementation is not necessary for guinea pigs that are fed Cavy Origins.
