    Critical Care Types

    Hello,
    So I've been working on getting more prepared for emergencies and I am going to buy some Critical Care (I know I should already have it on hand) but I am wondering about the different types. There is Apple and Banana, and Fine Grind, and I think there is Anise as well. What is the difference between all of them?

    Apple and banana is a flavor, which my pig Max liked before he passed, fine grind is smaller granulates so its easier to go through the syringe, and anise is another flavor, I asked and they said its licorice? Im not sure on that flavor

    Anise is very similar in flavour to fennel, which is also similar in flavour to licorice. I find that my guinea pigs who do not like apple/banana like the anise flavour, and the same vice versa. However some pigs are not picky and like both.

    If you happen to get caught without Critical Care on hand, you can also make a pellet slurry or mash from the regular food.
