Feeding Methods

Assist Feeding:

Syringe
Prepare a thin paste in a mixing bowl and either draw the mixture through the top of the syringe or scoop the paste into the back of a syringe in which the plunger has been removed. Replace the plunger and slowly administer small amounts until the recommended dose is fed.

Spoon
Mix a thick paste and offer it to the pet from a spoon. It may still be necessary to wrap the pet in a soft towel with this feeding method.

Self Feeding:

Bowl
As the animal recovers, it may not be necessary to continue assist-feeding. Mix a thick paste and place it in the pet’s favorite feeding bowl, enabling the pet to feed itself. Be sure to clean the bowl between feedings.

Top dressing
When the pet is ready to try eating its normal diet, mix in wet or dry Carnivore Care as a top dressing to improve food flavor and stimulate the pet’s appetite.
