    If this is MBD, he will need more than 300 mg. Give him the rest of it. You're in good hands with Jackie.

    hoping dwight will call in the morning...
    you can also put calcium in peanut butter or yogurt...avacodo always works...if he will eat.
    you're doing great guy...push the fluids...

    as his cal level rises he should gain appetite ...
    normally, does he crack nuts?

    I am slowly giving him the rest of the 300 mg calcium mixed with water. He won't take a piece of walnut. His movements aren't jerky anymore and he just walked around on my lap.

    as if he was paranoid...jerky?
    'on edge' jerky?
    was he limp after he 'twitched'?

    andrew...you are the eyes...is this a calcium issue...?
    if so...just keep on doing it...get calcium in him ...consistantly but not too fast... pace,...we do not want too much too fast...because calcium overload will also stop calcium absorbtion and he will eliminate it as waste...
    so just alternate fluids...
    molasses has calcium in it and you can mix with water to the color of tea and syringe that also...
    i will post my milkshake recipe...it's perfect for him...

    yeah as if he was nervous. He was a little stiff after he twitched. he hasn't been jerky since then. He just vomited a very small amount. About the size of a dime and now he curled up and went to sleep

    he has the symptoms of lethargy and weakness and it sounds like it's MBD except for the vomiting. I don't have any of the ingredients for the milkshake but I will give him mollasses with water. Should I keep giving him pedialyte?

    not really needed, but won't hurt either ...just alternate the calcium water, tap water, diluted fruit juice...apple maybe...and molasses tea...but continue to offer him solids until he takes something...even a saltine at this point...I understand he is still too weak...but hoping he will get hungry before morning...

    yup. Chuck is dozing and won't drink much at a time but I'm alternating calcium mixed with water and mollasses, orange juice, and water.he still won't take solid food. He is sleepy but his back legs are a little stiff.

    he's on a heat pad. His back legs feel a little stiff compared to his front legs which are limper. he seems to be slightly better though

    Is he sleeping at all? Are you still doing the calcium? I am going to try to look for other rehabbers near you...and then post here. I do hope that Dwight calls you back...perhaps give him another call around 8:30 or so. Will you be with your squirrel today or do you work?
