      This can be supplemented by a boost of vitamin if your guinea pig is sill or stressed to help support the immune system. Too much vitamin C on a regular basis can ironically lead to scurvy (vitamin C deficiency) as soon as the vitamin C input drops and can lead to problems in the long term.   Re: Human Liquid Vitamin C Liquid C is fine as long as it's only C and no other vitamins or minerals. However, if the pig(s) is/are eating a nice variety of veggies, adding more C into the diet would be overkill.

    CALCIUM per grams -- Vegetables mg -- Lambs quarters mg -- Spinach, Mustard mg -- Dill Weed mg -- Turnip Greens mg -- Dandelion Greens.   Like humans, guinea pigs can't make their own Vitamin C (also known as Ascorbic Acid) and as such, the only source of the vitamin is through their diet. Vitamin C is important for healthy bones, blood vessels and connective tissues, it also plays a vital roll in several biological systems and processes within the body including collagen production.

    Vitamin C drops are added to your guinea pig’s water, and they’ve long been a traditional way of giving guinea pigs vitamin C. But, they have several drawbacks: They alter the taste of the water, and if your guinea pig dislikes it, they now risk scurvy and dehydration.   High doses of vitamin C increased the severity of spontaneous knee osteoarthritis in guinea pigs, according to a recent study by Duke University Medical Centers. The finding contradicts earlier short-term studies in guinea pigs and an epidemiologic study in humans that suggested vitamin C and its antioxidant properties might protect against osteoarthritis, said Virginia Kraus, M.D., .

Other key points supporting the use of guinea pigs as models for human cholesterol and lipoprotein metabolism include: 1.

The Biology of the Guinea Pig focuses on the use of the guinea pig as a substrate in book provides a comprehensive coverage of material related to applied care and management of guinea pigs and their diseases.

Topics on guinea pig behavior, genetics, specific pathogen-free technique, biomethodology, and colony husbandry are also covered.5/5(1). These include man, other primates, the Indian fruit bat, and the guinea pig. Most other animals possess the necessary enzyme for vitamin C synthesis and for them ascorbic acid—although essential—is not a vitamin.

It is interesting that the agouti, which is closely related to the guinea pig is able to synthesize its own vitamin C. Guinea pigs spend most of their waking moments eating, and even short periods of anorexia (12–24 hours) can trigger them to break down their body fat to produce ketones as an alternative energy source, leading to the development of ketoacidosis which will be fatal.

VC Richardson feels this is a very useful vitamin for ill guinea pigs, especially if they are weak or not eating. Vitamin D, unique to this family of compounds, functions more like a prohormone in that it can be synthesized in the skin and carried to other organs where the metabolic effects occur.

As for the water-soluble vitamins and vitamin-like cofactors, the same statements cannot be made. Recently we have shown that guinea pigs also respond to drugs known to affect TG metabolism in humans.

One of them is the MTP inhibitor, which was shown to reduce plasma TG without increasing hepatic lipid accumulation. [ 30 ]Cited by:   And it does say B vitamins rather than C in the Lynx text: "Sometimes your guinea pig will ingest some of these pellets if you feed them to him, however, more often than not, you will have to supplement his diet with vitamin B-complex (25mg per day dissolved in water, applied by syringe).

A cavy’s diet should be higher in.Introduction. Vitamin C (VitC) deficiency can have detrimental effects in the brain of juvenile guinea pigs.

We have previously shown that a postnatal VitC deficiency in guinea pigs results in an impaired spatial memory function and a significant reduction in the number of neurons in the cornu ammonis (CA)1, the CA2–3 and the dentate gyrus (DG) of the hippocampus, unveiling a Cited by: Total Ear Canal Ablation and Ventral Bulla Osteotomy (TECA) for End-Stage Ears in Dogs and Cats.
