    I will be out of critical care for a day or two (expecting my Amazon order to arrive)
    How can I make my own mixture for syringe feeding? I have Oxbow adult rabbit food (pellets) thanks

    Just soak pellets in warm water until they make a slurry. You can use a blender and add some other things too if you like. Some greens or whatever.

    Depending on what the critical Care is being used for, you may not want to add anything extra -- especially not something like apple which has natural sugars already. Too much sugar can cause a bacterial imbalance in the gut which can just complicate whatever health issue you are dealing with.
