    Question Carnivore Care


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Is there any way of feeding carnivore care without being able to weigh the animal? I'd like to try it with my tokay and I don't want to risk stressing him out by attempting to handle him, and I'm pretty sure he wouldn't sit still on a scale...

    Yes, definitely!

    Add water to some powder until the Carnivore Care becomes semi-liquid. Hopefully your tokay will lick this off his lips. Otherwise you may need to use a syringe without the needle.

    If the Carnivore Care feedings do not help your tokay, please seek veterinary assistance.

    When you open the Carnivore Care mix up a small amount for no longer than 1 week. Keep it in a covered container in the refrigerator. Freeze the remaining Carnivore Care for up to 3 months.

    Thanks! I'll definitely get him to a vet if this fails. He may not be very friendly but he's one of my babies.

    Although, I believe this may help due to the fact that most of what he's taken has been offered by spoon/syringe. I know he's hungry and he'll definitely eat, I'm just hoping this will be appealing to him. I'll give it a shot as soon as I can get it.

    You're welcome.

    Is he captive bred?

    Amazon carries Oxbow's Carnivore Care. Some vets do too.

    Yes. He was bred out of Florida, I believe.

    I'm a happy camper... it arrived today and I just tried it out. He loved it. I've never seen him so enthused over food.

    For sure It's nice to see him eat, and to enjoy it. I'm glad I decided to try it!
    Now to see how it works for him over time..

    Thought I'd give a quick update. Though it's only been a few days, he clearly loves this stuff. This is a screenshot from a video of him eating it tonight. So far it's looking good, and he seems to be a happy boy.

    It will probably be a while before I update again, so I have time to see how it goes and how his appearance changes.
