A premium supplement for cheetahs and small wild felids that contains 18 different vitamins, minerals and amino acids (including glycine) to meet the nutritional requirements of adult felids that are primarily fed a meat-based diet. Thirty grams of powder is added to every kilogram of meat fed. For one average size cheetah, a 5 kg tub will last between 5 and 6 months.
For young growing cheetahs, this product should be used together with the CalciCare supplement.
"I would like to share a bit of success we had. We caught a leopard in a trap that was presumed to be about 6 months old (he weighed 13 kg). At that stage, I ordered the Panthera and CalciCare powder from you for this young cat. When we released him 3 months later, he weighed 27.5 kg! I am unbelievably impressed with the powder, and your supplements are the only ones that I recommend to any clients that keep predators."
