As a general guideline, mix 2 parts Carnivore Care to 1 part water. The volume of water may be adjusted to achieve desired consistency.
Divide into several feedings. Water should be available to the animal at all times.
Prepare a thin paste in a mixing bowl and either draw the mixture through the top of the syringe or scoop the paste into the back of a syringe in which the plunger has been removed. Replace the plunger and slowly administer small amounts until the recommended dose is fed.
Mix a thick paste and offer it to the pet from a spoon. It may still be necessary to wrap the pet in a soft towel with this feeding method.
As the animal recovers, it may not be necessary to continue assist-feeding. Mix a thick paste and place it in the pet’s favorite feeding bowl, enabling the pet to feed itself. Be sure to clean the bowl between feedings.
When the pet is ready to try eating its normal diet, mix in wet or dry Carnivore Care as a top dressing to improve food flavor and stimulate the pet’s appetite.
