Papaya Fruit Plus

Oxbow’s Papaya Fruit Plus contains a measureable concentration of active enzymes. Made from the freshest papaya and pineapple (natural sources of digestive enzymes papain and bromelain), Papaya Fruit Plus contains guaranteed levels of active enzymes that are present at a higher level than can be achieved by feeding the same amount of natural fruit. Veterinarians often recommend papaya and pineapple as supplements to aid in the rabbit digestive process. Designed specifically for small animals, Papaya Fruit Plus contains no simple sugars, such as sucrose or corn syrup, and is artificial color and preservative free. Try using this great tasting supplement as a training aid or as a treat to reward your special pet. Sizes: 90 ct.


**Effective September 1, 2014, Papaya Fruit Plus will be discontinued. Please note that this product will be available until September 1, 2014, or until all remaining inventory has been liquidated. For Papaya Fruit Plus customers interested in continuing to feed a digestive supplement, we recommend Natural Science Digestive Support. Natural Science Digestive Support contains long-strand fiber in the form of Timothy hay and various beneficial ingredients to support the overall digestive process by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut and supporting digestive motility throughout the digestive tract. Please note that Natural Science Digestive Support is not an enzymatic supplement, and is therefore not an exact replacement for Papaya Fruit Plus.**

Guaranteed Intake

Feeding a tablet guarantees that pets receive the entire guaranteed amount of the supplement necessary for optimum health. Supplements lose their potency when added to water. Animals may refuse or reduce the amount of water due to the taste of a water soluble supplement, which may lead to other health problems as well. Feeding a tablet, on the other hand, lets pet owners take the guesswork out of supplements.

“The new Oxbow Papaya Fruit Plus tablets caused rabbit riots with those buns who had never had them before. Before even getting the chance to pass them out, the bunnies could smell the sweet aroma and were chasing each other's tail ends, making sure the other bunny didn't receive one before they did. Yes, it was an all out brawl in the bunny barn! They don't just like them; they're willing to trample over their partners for a second helping.”
