I need some opinions.... I am going on vacation for a week. I have someone coming in every other day to take care of the piggies. They will have plenty of hay & pellets to last 2 days. My question is about their veggies & Vit C. I currently give them 1/2 a vit C tablet per day with mixed veggies at night. I am trying to figure out the best way for them to get their C without over or underdosing them. I was thinking a full tablet every other day with lots of veggies. But I am worried that it will be too much all at once. I have noticed they don't seem to stop eating when they get full....:D Any ideas?? Thanks!
 
This is my opinion only, but I wouldn't worry about even giving it. Missing a week's worth of vitamin C isn't going to hurt them, assuming they weren't C deficient in the first place. If they're getting a cup of good veggies per day, they probably don't even need it at all. My two don't take it.
