Oasis® Vita-Drops™ can be added to the food or the drinking water, whichever is more appropriate an accepted by the ferret. The preferred method of using Oasis Vita-Drops is to add the concentrated liquid supplement to the ferret's daily drinking water (whenever possible, use a sanitary water bottle instead of an open water dish, which can be easily contaminated with debris). However, some ferrets may prefer clear non-fortified water, in which case the vitamins may be applied directly to their food.
For drinking water:
2 drops per ounce of drinking water:
Shake or stir to mix. to insure freshness, change the water at least every 1 to 3 days.
Randomly scatter 2 or 3 drops of vita-drops directly onto the surface of the food every 1 to 3 days. Check to be sure that the vitamized food has been consumed within 24 hours. If the ferret refuses to eat the fortified diet, feed the usual plain diet for 3 days and try again. Ferrets can be creatures of habit, and may not accept the new vitaminized feed immediately. It is very important that the ferret not go without food by simply refusing the fortified feed.
Excess dosages should cause no ill effect. Store Oasis Vita-Drops in a cool dry place...may be refrigerated.
Use 1 1/2 to 2 times the dosage listed for young, aged, or ailing birds. If bird is ill or stressed and not drinking water, put 1 drop of Vita-Drops directly into beak followed by 0.6mL water. Seek the advice of a qualified avian veterinarian if you think your bird is ill. Occasional excess dosages should cause no ill effect. Store Oasis Vita-Drops in a cool dry place. Vita-Drops may be refridgerated but DO NOT FREEZE.
