EmerAid Sustain Herbivore®

EmerAid Sustain Herbivore is a high-fiber, recovery diet designed to support herbivorous mammals, including rabbits, guinea pigs, and chinchillas, recovering from critical illness, suffering from chronic medical conditions, or underweight. Sustain Herbivore is also designed to transition the debilitated herbivore from intensive care nutrition to normal feeding.

EmerAid Sustain Herbivore exceeds the nutritional requirements for rabbits, guinea pigs, and chinchillas, and may be fed for prolonged periods of time (even years) when clinical condition requires. In fact, since the energy density of Sustain Herbivore is approximately 20% higher than most standard diets, weight management must be considered when animals are fed Sustain Herbivore ad libitum.

Features and Benefits

  • Sources of the insoluble or structural fibers lignin and cellulose include timothy hay, soybean hulls, and peppermint leaves, which all help to maintain the health of the cecum and large intestine.
  • Fermentable or soluble fiber (hemicellulose, pectins, oligosaccharides) in the form of beet pulp, soybean meal, inulin, papaya, and xanthan, maintains a robust population of functional microflora in the large intestine and cecum.
  • Contains all essential amino acids.
  • A complete and balanced source of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and nucleotides.
  • Hydrolyzed soy protein is an easily digestible protein, which helps the body quickly rebuild lean body mass.
