Intensive Care Nutrition
The Emeraid System for Exotic Animal Critical Care is designed to quickly provide life-saving semi-elemental nutrition for a wide variety of exotic animal patients during the critical first week of care.
Emeraid Intensive Care nutrition products contain high levels of glutamine and arginine for the debilitated patient, purified essential amino acids and hydrolyzed proteins, dietary nucleotides to provide DNA and RNA precursors, a highly digestible blend of fats and simple carbohydrates for energy, and balanced omega 3:6 polyunsaturated fatty acids.
Intensive care nutrition products are indicated for debilitated, cachectic patients; individuals with reduced digestive capacity, highly stressed patients needing the minimal numbers of feedings, and/or patients that require additional calories to maintain or gain weight.
Intensive care nutrition for debilitated piscivores. International Bird Rescue has tube or gavage fed Emeraid Piscivore to many fish-eating birds including pelicans, cormorants, grebes, fulmars, shearwaters, loons, gulls, terns, egrets, and herons.
Fish oil is added to Emeraid powder in-house, which allows the dietary fat content to be varied from 5% to 35%. Adding fish oil immediately before feeding, allows Emeraid Piscivore to remain stable for a year.
