Default Sunshine Factor

If I notice no problems with my pog's skin or quills, is it still a good idea to put her on an intake of sunshine factor you all talk about? Much like we take vitamins........

Where do you get it? Do major pet store chains carrier it?

Thanks. Kathy

When I asked my vet about SF, she thought it was a great idea, even though we've never had any flaking or quill issues with Hercules. She said it's made up of mostly B vitamins, and nothing he could actually overdose on (he'll just pee out the excess his body doesn't need). I don't give it to him all the time, maybe only every 4 or 5 nights. I bought it from Herc's vet, but it can also be purchased online (I think it's quite a bit cheaper online too). Herc loves the stuff, he gobbles up his dinner like a madman when I put SF on it!

My vet sells it, so maybe ask yours? since they're the only exotic clinic in the area, and treat birds etc

Can anyone recommend a reputable website to buy SF from? I'm cautious of giving websites my credit card info because a family member once had their identity stolen.

Do any pet stores sell sunshine factor? I've been using flax seed oil it helps with the itching but my hedgie still has some dry skin. I thought I would give SF a try.

I bought my Booster (made by the same company, like SF with extras added for sick/injured/stressed animals) from this website, and they were very nice in helping get it shipped to me (I was in Germany at the time).

I have my boy Charley on it about 2x weekly for his skin which is chronically dry. I started giving it to him when he came down with mites earlier this year.
