    You can give her some formula, not as much as usually. Something like watermelon would be good is it is something watery and something she likes.

    Did you give any pepto bismol? If yes, that will cause very black poop... don't be alarmed by it.

    Yes, I gave her two tiny drops of pepto and I just gave her some watermelon. She seems very hungry now. I'm scared my powdered formula is spoiled since CritterMom said it should be stored in the freezer not the fridge. So I ordered some and its not coming in until July 31st. So what should I do until then? Would Esbalic be an option or would the further her problems?

    At 400 grams + and 10 weeks old she should be fine for a few days without formula if you fear yours is bad.

    You can give her some veggies and / or block.

    So Friday morning Luna only threw up once around 5 pm. This morning she threw up again really foamy lots of bubbles. Been trying to keep her hydrated, just wondering how long it takes for this to pass.

    Trying to fill in the timeline.

    Wednesday she was throwing up, pepto was given and formula stopped.

    Friday evening she threw up around 5pm.

    Was she okay Thursday and most of Friday? Was she restarted on the formula, if so when?

    I am just wondering if there is a link with the formula if she was okay while not on the formula.

    Sorry, Wednesday she was throwing up most of the day and pepto was given.

    Thursday she threw up once and friday she was fine.

    My milk came in on Friday I put in the freezer and mixed some up last night for this morning. I gave her a little piece of a peach while I was warming up her formula. She threw up before I could give her any. There wasn't any bits of peach in the vomit, it was liquidity and then foamy.

    I have been trying to get her fluids, I "tented" her skin and it went down within a second. So I dont think she's dehydrated despite the vomiting.

    I live in north western PA, im willing to drive to get her help through a veterinarian if someone can help me. Squirrels aren't legal here so I'll get fined and she'll possibly be euthanized. Our game commission isn't very friendly when it comes to helping critters. Our family friend rescued a Canadian goose and it ended up being a war with her and the local game warden. I'll pay for your time to help and of course veterinarian bills. I'm trying the best I can right now to get her better (all thanks to your help, I really apreciate it). But she doesn't seem like she's getting better. Unless she just needs to "get out" whatever is upsetting her stomach.
