    Do you have prune juice or apple juice? You can give either one to it but dilute it with water first. Give some slightly sweetened water in between normal feeding times.

    You can also hold it in warm water up to its armpits and gently massage the abdomen in a downward motion. Make sure heís warm and dry afterwards. Rub a little olive or coconut oil around his rectum.

    Stop the wheat flour, it might be too binding for him.

    Do you have access to goats milk instead of cows milk? Hereís the recipe for homemade goats milk formula: 3 parts fresh goats milk, 1 part heavy whipping cream and 1 part full fat yogurt. The goats milk is better for them than cows milk.

    Is there any type of powdered puppy formula available in pet stores there?

    Wheat causes constipation for squirrels. Grains in general are bad for squirrels. Baby food cereals are also often going to contain wheat as the most common ingredient, so avoid those as well.

    Have you tried whole milk, plain Greek Yogurt?

    (The yogurt should have no added sugars or fruit. Those types usually have too many grams of sugar.) If you warm the yogurt up to body temperature it become pretty liquid. Just give it a drop at a time.

    As long as the squirrel remains hydrated the constipation should hopefully resolve on its own.

    I did a little research and it appears coconut oil may help. Do you know what your squirrel weighs? Since itís a palm squirrel Iím going to assume heís pretty small. Try giving .1cc of liquified coconut oil and see if that helps. Continue to provide lots of water to drink. Do the warm water soaks and massages of his belly.

    Yay! Donít feed any wheat flour or grains. Here is the link for the recipe for homemade goats milk formula. If you can get these ingredients, we know that squirrels can survive on it. https://thesquirrelboard.com/forums/...06#post1299706

    Each one makes a different amount.

    Can you get any type of hard extruded rat block? Like this https://www.chewy.com/oxbow-garden-s...xoCi84QAvD_BwE

    Or monkey biscuits like this? https://www.mazuri.com/mazuri/primat...nch-20-biscuit

    These are the types of food she should eat when she no longer wants milk. They are fed along with some fresh veggies from the feeding chart. https://thesquirrelboard.com/forums/...5&d=1391033425

    I know things are limited in your country but this will give you an idea of the types of food to feed. You can also provide natural foods that you see other palm squirrels eat in the wild.
