    Liquid Vitamin C dosage-Scurvy

    I recently made a post about my piggie but to recap, my Laci is an elder pig and recently developed Scurvy. She is fed a wide range of veggies and she is on oxbow pellets which she does not like to eat. She eats her hay and veggies just fine. I was told by my vet that it is likely her age that made her develop this and gave her a large vitamin C shot and recommended I give her some extra veggies. However, I took it on myself to order the Childlife liquid vitamin C so that I know sheís getting more vitamin C in her diet. The only problem is that I only have ML syringe and canít find any suggested dosage for a pig with scurvy. The closest thing I can find is a review on Amazon who says they give their pig .5ml. Now, I understand they pee out any extra. But I donít want to force her to take more than she needs. Hope I am making sense and any help is appreciated!!! Thank you again!

    You can copy your post above and paste it on your pig's original thread. You're allowed only one medical thread per pig -- it makes it much easier for people to give you good responses if all the information about the pig is on the same thread. I'll close this one.
