Additional Vitamin C

 

Do not try to supplement your pet's vitamin C need by adding it to his drinking water. Vitamin C degrades quickly in water, which means you'll need to change it more frequently, and it may make it taste funny or unfamiliar, which can make your pet reluctant to drink.

 

If your guinea pig needs supplemental vitamin C in addition to what he receives in his diet, discuss those needs with your veterinarian. A chewable form may be necesarry to get his level back where it belongs
