    Question Need new Vit C source

    My girl, Pumpkin, has decided she doesn't like bell peppers anymore so I am looking for a high Vit C lower Calcium food to give her.. Cilantro is low in Vit C, parsley is high but parsley is high in Calcium. Suggestions welcome. Thank you!

    You can always use Oasis drops. Make sure you get the Vitamin C one, and not the multivitamin. Packaging is almost identical

    Just draw up .3 or .4 ml and give it straight to your pig, or sprinkle it on other veggies.

    We love Oxbow vitamin c cookies, if you want a non-veggie.

    Stop feeding the peppers for a while, then try again in a few weeks. Sometimes they get tired of something and when it shows up again they are interested.

    Mine decided she didn’t like peppers right after I had just bought several. So to keep them from spoiling I cleaned them, sliced them up and froze them. Turned out she liked them frozen.

    Thanks! I have never tried frozen before. I'll put some slices in the freezer and switch to parsley for now.
