    I think you should give her anything that she will eat. If you can get her to drink the goats milk, heavy cream, yogurt, egg mixture, then feed it to her. She has to have some nutrition.

    Many squirrels won't eat blocks, even mine don't always.
    Try any foods just to get her eating. Do you have corn on the cob🤔 it's more a treat since it has a lot of sugar but maybe to perk up her appitie. I've even used frozen veggies before just let them defrost naturally.
    Maybe this was already suggested but can you get dried meal worms? Most squirrels love them.
    Hard boil an egg, let it cool and give her small pieces, my Conker loves egg, even scrambled just not in a lot of butter, I use a small amount of avocado oil however usually he gets some of my scrambled egg and it's fried in butter😶 can always microwave scrambled egg in no oil 👍

    Have you tried grinding the blocks into a powder and then mixing it with some baby food and coconut or avocado oil?

    If she doesn't eat those blocks try a different recipe....keep trying until you find something she likes...please! Did you try the recipe I sent in an earlier post? One of my past squirrels wouldn't eat anything until I made the squirrel crackers and she LOVED them! Nuts in shells are very important to keep their teeth ground down otherwise her teeth will get out of control and turn into an issue. You should be able to order nuts on line. Also most squirrels will not turn down any nuts when they are hungry.

    At this point, don't worry about MBD because if she doesn't eat more she is going to spiral down.

    If you have to give her a piece of a pecan or a walnut to get her appetite going, so that she will eat other things, that is okay.

    Since the block you made for her doesn't appeal that much, keep trying things until you find something she will eat. There may be one or two ingredients in there that she doesn't like. They are notoriously picky.

    Do you have the block you made for her stored in the refrigerator?

    Squirrels prefer food that is fresh and I am pretty certain that homemade block will go bad if not refrigerated.

    The less fresh something is, the less they like it.

    Some other ideas... I don't know if you have these around you but Mulberries and Apricot is something Buddy enjoys. I know they are not stables/regular food, but might be worth trying to get some nutrition in...

    I also noticed that my squirrel, who is ~13 weeks, doesn't take any formula during the day, but a few hours after sunset, when he is sleepy, he is more likely to take his formula. Not sure if you tried different times.
