When i used to keep pet rats, i always kept a similar product for poorly, old or sick rats. I have since spotted this one and its says suitable for guineapigs and rabbits.

Has anyone used this? My rats used to go MAD for this (a very similar product) and would make even the poorliest rat eat... but what about guinea pigs?
Is this palitable for pigs? and if so how "good" for piggies is it? I am trying to build up a bigger first aid kit and want to know should this be part of it?

Thank you

Looks like it has Cod Liver oil in and as piggies are vegan I wouldn't feed it. Looks similar to malt paste I give my hamsters though.
