The usual preys of a carnivore are normally other vertebrates. Their carcasses are generally similar between species when we talk about important nutrients. The carcasses contain protein, calcium and phosphorus in big quantities and in good proportions and also a good amount of vitamins and minerals. The amount of water and fat will depend of the time of the year and the body condition of the prey.
The fat present on the carcasses is also really important due to the high quantity of minerals and fat soluble vitamins. The lack of Vitamine E and Selenium in captivity cause many cases of White muscle disease.
When we talk about wild carnivores or piscivores under human care, usually the main source of food is meat. Meat from farm animals, so we are mainly talking about muscles. When a predator catches his prey, normally he will eat the entire carcass, and the composition of the muscle is many different from the composition of the whole prey. The muscle is a good source of aminoacids, minerals like potassium, selenium, zinc and some vitamins, but really lacks in calcium, Magnesium, Vitamine A, D and E. So we can say that feeding a carnivore (under human care) exclusively with meat will have a predictable end…
Use of supplements
That’s why the use of supplements is so important. Because of this, we developed Wisbroek CarniPro to make sure that carnivores and piscivores under human care will be properly nourished. By adding Wisbroek CarniPro to carcasses, meat and fish, the animal gets all necessary nutrients for their daily activities.
We would like to explain what makes Wisbroek CarniPro different from the other supplements already available on the market. For example, part of the vitamin A is used as the safe form of B-carotene that cannot be overdosed. It also contains Probiotics that will help to keep a balanced intestinal flora. In addition it has increased vitamin E and organic selenium levels. As I mentioned, those are strong antioxidants that support immunity, especially in high-fat diets. Wisbroek CarniPro also contains extra Vitamin B1 which is broken down in frozen fish by thiaminase and we all know how important this is. Besides, at least 50% of the minerals are added in their organic, safe and natural form and finally yeast cell walls are added to support the immune system.
Add Wisbroek CarniPro
The way to add Wisbroek CarniPro to the feed is really easy. Just use the recommended dosage mentioned on the product label. Divide 1% Wisbroek CarniPro over the carcass, meat or fish. Add the correct dosage (10g per kilogram of feed); the supplied scoop facilitates this. A leveled off scoop contains 10 grams of Wisbroek CarniPro. Depending of the target specie there are a number of techniques that can help to ensure that the animal eats the supplement. Of course we are always open to give some advices about that!
