Liquivite is a canned liquid food, available in a 395g can
Veterinary Use Liquivite both feeds and rehydrates the sick, convalescent, post-operative or anorexic cat or dog, which cannot or will not take solids or drink liquids. Liquivite is smooth enough for syringe feeding when appetite is absent, and readily consumed as appetite returns. Liquivite has a high-quality meat-based recipe, plus vitamin and mineral supplementation needed for these 'stress' levels. It also contains fish oil to provide Omega 3 fatty acids, a pre-biotic to feed the beneficial bacteria in the gut, and yeast. Further, Liquivite's high moisture level means that it replaces fluid when dehydration has occurred, or is a risk. As well as cats and dogs, Liquivite has been found suitable for other meat-eating species - such as hedgehogs, ferrets, tortoises coming out of hibernation, and reptiles. Note that the contents are identical whether for cat or dog - just the instructions will vary slightly according to quantity to be fed to the consuming species
Non-veterinary use Liquivite is suitable for the older cat and dog, perhaps less able to handle solid foods as easily. It can be fed either as a meal by itself, or mixed with other foods, particularly dry foods. For weaning kittens and puppies, Liquivite helps in the transition to solids, introducing meats in a familiar liquid form. Rescue groups find Liquivite useful in aiding the recovery of the debilitated cats and dogs they treat, as well as other carnivorous species. Benefits Levels of vitamins and minerals meet the requirements of the cat or dog when under stress conditions. The meats, eggs, milk and yeast provide a balanced amino acid profile in a readily assimilated peptide form. The yeast also contributes B vitamins content and is a source of nucleotides. Fish Oils provide omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, important to the immune system. The natural anti-oxidant has a two-fold role, firstly preserving the food against fat oxidation, and then once absorbed act in the animal's body to protect it against free radicals. The pre-biotic, Profeed, promotes the beneficial bacterial population of the intestine. Cereals, poorly utilised by dogs, and especially by cats, are not included in Liquivite. Of the copper inclusion, 30% is chelated, to make it more available to the animal. Taurine is added, particularly important in perfecting eyesight in cats.
Feeding Directions Amounts to feed reflect Liquivite's higher moisture content and its role in re-hydrating as well as feeding the sick cat or dog. For cats, introduce at 100g per kg of bodyweight; increase by 50% as appetite returns. For small breeds of dogs introduce at 100g per kg of bodyweight, for medium breeds at 80g, and for large breeds at 60g. Increase by 50% as appetite returns. These directions are given on the labels, as are amounts to feed the weaning kitten or puppy.
Shake can well before opening. Once opened, use within 24 hours, refrigerating any unused portion. Return to room temperature before feeding.
Liquivite also freezes well, allowing its use over a period of time, for example where small daily amounts are needed for the weaning kitten or puppy. Freeze Liquivite in serving-sized amounts. When required, defrost and allow to return to room-temperature, stir well, and feed as normal.
