    I have been wanting to buy some vitamin c tablets to have on hand for my goats and I am wondering if there is something I should look for when buying them. I would have just gone to the store and bought whatever looked right at the store but with the coronavirus going on all the stores are out of it. So is there like, any ingredients I should look out for or will any do? And what about amount of vitamin c in each tablet? Thanks!

    Same as Groovyoldlady - Nature Made Chewable C, 500 mg, 70 tablets, orange flavored. I think they are about $6 at Walmart. They even had coupons for $2 off that brand earlier in year. I cut them in half and give them a piece in winter time, they love them, and no issues with runny noses or coughing or anything.
