    With the help of this amazing group… The clicking is gone! I’ve adjusted my feeding technique and He hasn’t had any aspiration issues. I’m so incredibly thankful! But now we have some diarrhea… i’m assuming from the antibiotics. Any tips to help with that? I’m currently feeding the goat milk, heavy whipping cream, and yogurt mix until my formula comes in on Tuesday.

    I'm so glad to hear the clicking is gone.
    Get some probiotic capsules from the drug store.
    Pull one apart and give the amount of a capital O two
    hours before dosing the abs.
    I use these:


    You can also cut back a little on the heavy cream for now
    until the diarrhea subsides.
    Thank you for the update.
    Your boy is just precious.

    Almost forgot.
    Order the Fox Valley 20/50 formula now.
    https://www.henryspets.com/fox-valle...aby-squirrels/
    You can start a transition real soon.
    The Goat Milk formula is just a temporary fix.

    I wanted to let you know about the Miracle nipple. It is awesome for feeding baby squirrels. They are much less likely to aspirate when using a good nipple and feeding technique. The Miracle nipple can be purchased at Henry’s Healthy Pets. Also, O-ring syringes are much smoother than the black plunger type. Those get sticky and can cause a blast of formula. Henry’s also sells the O-ring syringes.

    The baby is precious and I’m so glad he is doing better. Did I miss the little peanuts name?

    His name is Chipper 😊

    How should I mix this probiotic?

    Are you referring to the powdered probiotic? You can put it in his formula that’s already in a syringe if you know about how much he takes each time. Or you can mix it with a little water and just put it in his mouth. It doesn’t have much taste, I’ve been told.

    I went and got the same probiotic capsules that are in the picture above. I wasn’t sure how to dilute and how much to give. He’s so very little… I don’t want to give too much but I know the antibiotics have upset his belly.

    Open the capsule and give a tiny "pinch" mixed with warm water... it does not take a lot to help offset the issues caused by the antibiotics and it takes quite a bit to cause any worry. You want to give this an hour before or after administering the anti-biotics.

    The probiotic is important and also something I have used with good success is called BRAT. Do both. Take 3 Tablespoons of made formula (whatever you are feeding)
    1/2 teaspoon of Gerber rice baby cereal
    1/2 teaspoon of banana baby food

    Feed this as you would your regular formula. Do not over feed your baby. That would cause diarrhea. Feed at 5% of the baby’s weight.

    You have a very beautiful baby!

    He's absolutely precious.
    He looks a little dehydrated to me.
    Try giving him some homemade pedialyte
    in between formula feedings.
    Does he still have diarrhea?
    How much formula are you feeding each time,
    and how many times daily do you feed?

    Homemade Rehydration fluid:

    1 cup warm water
    1 tablespoon sugar or molasses
    1 pinch salt

    So you want just the teeniest pinch of the stuff. Dump a capsule out in something you can cover and store. I would use a toothpic, myself - dampen the tip and use it to "pick up" a little blob of the powder the size of an "o". It isn't dangerous - the digestive system kills lots of the probiotic bacteria before it even gets absorbed. You are basically just "re-seeding" the digestive system. The ANTIbiotics kill the PRObiotics - which is what causes the stomach upset. Put your teeny blob right in his formula - it is usually a little sweet so he won't notice a thing. Add the powder AFTER the formula has cooled to just before you feed it to the baby - last minute. High heat kills the bacteria - you don't want to annihilate them before they can do their thing! Try to have as much time between your probiotic feeding and the drug dosing as you can. For example, if you were giving him the meds at 6AM and 6PM, doing the probiotic feeding at either noon or midnight would be about perfect.

    If he has diarrhea right now, you can give him .01 cc of pepto bismol. It will make his poop turn black - don't freak out, it does it to anything that takes it. When you see that color change, you will know the pepto has gone all the way through him. If he is still having diarrhea, try another dose.

    I have been giving that mix a few times a day. I’ll add it in some more. I feed him 1.45cc every 2-3 hours of a homemade mix of goat milk, yogurt, and whipping cream. He weights 32 grams. I ordered fox valley and it’s supposed to be delivered today so I’ll start that tonight when I get home.

    You need to do a really slow transition to the new formula. Make up a batch of each of them, then in a third container, mix it so it is 3/4 goats milk formula and 1/4 FV. I would feed him that for several feedings at least before doing a 50/50 mix. And feed that for several feedings before advancing on to 1/4 GM formula and 3/4 FV. This will let you catch tummy issues brought on by changing formulas way before they are critical. Doing a hard swap can make them quite ill.
