Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) for Animals

Most animals except primates, guinea pigs and fruit bats produce their own vitamin C, however if your animal (or pet) is stressed or ill then it is a good idea to supplement with Ascorbic Acid. Take a goat as an example... a 65kg goat produces 13 grams of vitamin C daily and it will produce much more if it is sick.

As a guide; one teaspoon equals approx. 4 grams of Ascorbic Acid.

Ascorbic Acid can be added to food, drenched or mixed in with the animals drinking water.
