    Dr. Suzanne Humphries said she does. But in the You tube she doesn't say which animals she has herself.
    The sodium ascorbate type...
    I was doing the calcium ascorbate type but too much calcium is bad for myself that is..
    I know that guinea pigs and human cant make their own Vitamin C . but occ it should help
    I sure believe in it for us, even though the " pharmaceutical controlled medical community' says opposite
    ONE OLDER POST SAID SOMETHING ABOUT IN their feed and another said put the powder in with some raisins
    I just know that the powder crystal form will sink to the bottom
    Now I dont mean everyday use but occ use for the girls
