    Liquid Ionic Vitamin B-12 with trace minerals.

    This B-12 methylcobalamin vitamin source lends support to animals in pain and stress from nerve and joint injuries.

    One needle drop from a 1cc (ml) needle syringe daily; dosage noted for this source only.

    As for the formula, try adding some Honey to the mix and see if that entices him.
    This is an alternative source for honey as you noted to add to the formula to entice him to drink it.

    One tiny drop of organic Maple syrup.

    One tiny drop of this source of organic Vanilla extract, with a trace of (0.5 %) organic ethanol, may improve the aroma and flavor of the formula.

    All three sources support the better absorption of calcium and lower its loss if the amount of sugar added is minimal.

    The squirrel is a Persian Pine squirrel (Sciurus anomalus) native to the region. Scroll down to see Figure 8 photo (page 131)

    Hello

    Update on his health: he has started to walk again, and he is improving, and he has started to drink formula himself although he still doesn't let me feed him, but it's a relief to me as he gets it at least, even though it may not be an adequate amount,

    Thank you to all those who replied to my post and helped me a lot!

    I will try to upload a video to show you how he is,

    Mani

    You should consider bathing him up to his chest, in lukewarm water, as the urine will scald his skin.

    Have the room warmed up, the towels ready, one to dry him very gently, and a light blanket (fleece) to cover him up in in the container you presently house him in. A heating pad set on low, placed beneath one end of the container, will allow him to move onto and off of the warm spot.

    Update: He has gained use of his legs and his tail, but he still seems to have no control over his urine, it may that or he just wants to pee everywhere (including on me -.-), I don't know what to do, he also sometimes urinates and starts licking his urine -.-, which makes me very angry, why does he do this?

    I don't know what to do, any ideas?

    I bathed him 2 days ago with so much difficulty as he wanted to escape my hand, and after that he escaped my hand and went into his cage, so he didn't let me dry him, but luckily the weather is warm here, so I hope nothing bad has happened, and he looks fine still.

    Oh, he can likely control it - he WANTS to pee everywhere! It is how they territory mark and every time you clean up he has to do it all over again! And licking up their urine? That, too, is a normal squirrel thing.
