(1) These dosage tips apply to any new food or supplement.
There is no set dosage for the optimal dosage. The optimal dosage varies from animal to animal. The optimal, or effective, dosage has to be found by testing, administering incrementally. Similarly, there is no set combination of products. The combination of supplements has to be found by testing. You are looking for stability not a preset dosage and combination of products.
(2) Start with any one product of your choosing.
(3) Proceed little by little. Incrementalism creates steps in the dosages and combinations. You may increase or decrease dosages every four hours .
Keep a diary if necessary. By proceeding in steps, you can back up to a previous dosage, stay at the present dosage, or move forward by increasing dosages and adding additional supplements. These products have no toxic dose, so you can test safely, without the risk of serious side effects.
(4) There are no hard rules for adding additional products. You will have to judge by the results. Everything is safe and the worst thing that can happen is diarrhea or vomiting. In which case, you back up.
(5) Judge your animals reaction at each step. Are the symptoms getting worse? getting better? or are they staying the same? This will help guide you as to whether you should increase, stay the same, or go back to a previous dose.
(6) If at the first step, you get an increase in diarrhea or vomiting, stop that supplement, and try another. If there is no change, continue raising dosage until you start seeing symptoms getting better, or add another product to the first, as they could work better together
(7) If you reach a step where symptoms seem to get worse, go back to the previous step.
(8) At the step that symptoms improve, stay at that step, unless you feel there is room for even more improvement, then keep increasing.
(9) Feed only one type of food. Preferably “Limited ingredients, grain free, single protein”. Rabbit or venison. No snacks or food variations. This will eliminate variables.
(10) If your animal will not eat the supplements on food, then go thru the preceding steps by syringe feeding.
(11) Wet powders to add to dry food to ensure the powders are not inhaled. This is so the animal does not inhale any powder.[/col] [/row] [title text=”recent blog posts”] [row col_style=”divided”] [col span__sm=”12″] [blog_posts columns__sm=”1″ animate=”fadeInLeft” posts=”4″ image_height=”70%”] [/col] [/row]
