    Just give them the Oxbow vitamin c cookies. I haven't had a pig reject them. I give one a day or two if they're ill. I have no idea if doubling while sick works, but it makes me feel better and it hasn't harmed them.

    Also, don't use the water additives or the treats with dairy. Both are bad for piggies!

    VitaDrops makes a liquid vitamin C that you can syringe to the pigs or sprinkle it on their veggies.

    Thank you! our vet recommended us these vitamin C drops that are meant for kids. I just give them one ml of it each morning.

    My senior piggy, Lily, recently started rejecting the Oxbow vitamin C and I have switched to Sherwood Pet Health's vitamin C tablet. Lily loves blue berries and the Sherwood one has triple berries, including blue berry.
