Some recovery and emergency cases require added versatility when it comes to delivering critical nutrition. Critical Care Fine Grind contains the same essential nutrition as Critical Care, but in a finer particle size made to flow easily through nasogastric feeding tubes as small as 5 Fr. Because of its smaller particle size, Critical Care Fine Grind is ideal for use with small and young patients.

  • Finer particle size than Critical Care
  • Powdered formula mixes easily to desired consistency
  • Highly versatile – can be tube fed, assist-fed by syringe or spoon, or self-fed by bowl or as top dressing
  • High in fiber; low in carbohydrates
  • Contains readily-absorbable chelated minerals and beneficial prebiotics

As a general guideline, mix 1 part Critical Care Fine Grind® to 3 parts warm water. The volume of water may be adjusted to obtain optimal feeding consistency. Amounts are general guidelines and should be adjusted based on patient condition. Divide daily amount into 4-6 servings, or as indicated by your veterinarian. Critical Care Fine Grind is best utilized with feeding tubes, 5 French or larger, including nasogastric tubes. Flush the tube thoroughly with warm water after each use to prevent the product from hardening and obstructing the tube. Water should be available to the animal at all times.
