Excel Dual Care
Burgess Excel DualCare is a complementary feed for recuperating rabbits and guinea pigs. Each box contains 10 x 60g sachets.
Excel DualCare is a recovery and recuperation product for rabbits and guinea pigs. It can either be fed in its dry form alongside good quality hay, or can be mixed into a paste that can be *syringe fed using a wide tipped syringe. The product contains all of the necessary vitamins and minerals required to meet the nutritional needs of rabbits and guinea pigs, including high levels of protected vitamin C.
Suitable for feeding after illness or surgery
With magnesium and tryptophan to support in times of stress
High levels of beneficial fibre to support gastrointestinal function
*Syringe not included.
Syringe feeding requires time and patience as after each 1-2 ml the rabbit or guinea pig should be given the opportunity to swallow with the syringe tip removed from the mouth. To make the syringe feed paste we recommend adding 2 parts warm water to 1 part Excel DualCare, allowing to soak for 3-4 minutes and then gently mixing into a paste.
The patient should receive a maximum of 10ml of paste per kg of bodyweight per syringe feed session, and so will require regular feeds throughout the day, depending on the nutritional requirements of the individual patient. We recommend that the solution is made up fresh each time to the required consistency. Clean the syringe thoroughly after each feeding session.
As the patient starts to recover, very gradually progress them to consuming Excel DualCare as a nugget with no added water. Once fully recovered the patient can be transitioned onto the appropriate life stage nuggets from the Burgess Excel feeding plan.
Fresh good quality hay should be available at all times to the patient, so that as soon as they want to they can start consuming hay.
