    I can help you with this, but what makes you think she has pneumonia?

    Someone will be helping momentarily via pm.
    What formula are you feeding, how much, and how often.
    Is your little one peeing and pooping?
    Have you ever raised a squirrel before?
    Would you like for us to try to find a licensed
    rehabber?

    Thank you so much for your help. I responded in pm. I have raised a squirrel before but its been a while and I made the mistake of feeding with too big of a syringe. My friend who is a rehabber will be back in town this week so she can take them back. I just want to get them stabilized. I feel awful.

    You also mentioned "Distended belly," could you be over feeding?
    Is baby moving it's bowels when stimulated?
    Can you post pictures? Always helpful to assess with another set of eyes.

    Never have I heard of mixing formula like that! Is the esbilac powered or liquid?
    That baby is dangerously bloated and needs to be addressed asap, do not feed that baby
    again while bloated like that.

    Edit: We have been in communication, member is working on addressing the bloat.
