Sneaking in vitamins

Postby Gail » Wed May 05, 2021 5:20 pm

Any tips on how to sneak vitamin powder into Sam? He hates the taste and knows what it looks like on his food and won't eat it. He is fine with calcium.

I was sneaking vitamins on a whole dandelion leaf, just one side so when I'd hold it for him, he couldn't see the powder. That stopped working after just a couple times.

what I do is dust his bugs bc he gets them 3 times a week which is around the number of times to give vitamins! :D

That's the problem, the vitamin dusted bugs look different from calcium dusted bugs. He knows the difference.

So what I do spray down his greens and sprinkle the vitamin powder on them so it sticks to the greens and then toss them in a bowl so it mixes in and they put it in his dish. My guy also won't eat anything dusted with the vitamin powder.

Feed the vitamins to the bugs so the bugs have them endogenously available.
