About Blue Bay HPS

Directions for Feeding
FRUGIVOROUS ANIMALS: Fruit can represent a large proportion of the diet for some animals and birds. To ensure that there is sufficient quality protein in their diet disperse 2 heaped teaspoons of Blue Bay High Protein Supplement over each 100g of fruit.
POSSUMS and GLIDERS:
For animals being fed fruit, disperse 2 heaped teaspoons of High Protein Supplement over each 100g fruit offered. For animals fed plain biscuit prepare a 25% w/v suspension of High Protein Supplement in water and use at the rate of 10mL per 25g of biscuit. Also include up to 20% of prepared Blue Bay Small Carnivore Food in their diet.
FLYING FOXES: Disperse 2 heaped teaspoons of Blue Bay High Protein Supplement over 300g of fresh cut apple and feed this quantity to each adult animal. Increase the amount of supplement to 4 heaped teaspoons when feeding pregnant or nursing females and juveniles.
OTHER USES: Wombaroo High Protein Supplement can be substituted for the High Protein Cereal used in the many food recipes for animals and birds. You only need to use half the quantity of Blue Bay High Protein Supplement because of its superior protein quality and higher concentration.
