3 years ago, a discussion was started about pinkies not digesting Fox Valley 32/40 formula.
Seasoned rehabbers were losing babies, from undigested formula that sat in the babies tummies
like cement, with the milk line never disappearing.
I won't rehash the nightmares this caused.
Most people have since switched over to Powdered Puppy Esbilac for babies under 4 weeks
and some have continued with just the Esbilac until the squirrel is weaned.
This is just a reminder that Fox Valley 32/40 kills many/most pinkies, they cannot digest it.
We've been complacent about alerting members of this, thinking that most already knew.
I believe that after 3 years some felt the problem was rectified, (AS IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN!!!!)
because we don't bring it up.
However, in the past 3 years we have NOT recommended it to ANY new member, and this needs to be
mentioned again as a reminder.
This just happened again to a seasoned rehabber. She fed Fox Valley 32/40 and it sat like cement.
Three of the babies have died.
Discussion from 8/2013
IF you have already fed this, a long time member has come up with this protocol below that has helped save his babies.
