Niacin Supplement - Page 3

Got it.  And I cannot seem to tag people when I use my phone.  Very frustrating sometimes.  However, we live in an age of magic.  You and I are communicating across the miles, not even knowing where the other one is.

We have a two week old pekin that is in need of niacin.  In the past I crushed up a bit of a niacin tablet, mixed it with water and squirted it down the ducks throat.  For the life of me I cannot remember how much I gave her.  Anyone have any idea how much if administering this way?

No, I don't, @Rhondax6, can you calculate it using the 150 mg niacin per gallon of drinking water information?  That's about a mg niacin per ounce of water......How much does a two week old Pekin drink in a day?  I mean, drink, not just splash.....:hide

 

Does @casportpony  know?

As it turns out, there is no regular niacin or B3 in this entire town.  It'll be Wednesday before I can get to the next town over to get some nutritional yeast.  We've already lost one, I hope this one can hang on.  Thanks for the reply!

Try adding a tablespoon per day crushed cat kibble.

They probably drink 10-20% of their body weight per day.
