    Default Milk replacement 3 week old (eyes closed) 68 gram Red Fox Squirrel

    I'm so confused. A ton of forums said to use one formula, then that was dangerous. Then I rushed to order Fox Valley 32/40, but read that is sitting in their tummies like cement. PLEASE tell me what I'm supposed to be feeding this hungry little one.

    After eyes are open you can gradually switch to Fox Valley 20/50....
    I get both from Amazon 👍

    So, am I NEVER supposed to use FV 32/40 or should I be using it before her eyes open? Right now she is on Esbilac and with the small small mammals expert recommending I add a small amount of heavy cream bc she was underweight. She is eating 4 ml every 3 hrs. I have had her for 4 days. The first 24 hours was rehydration, and after that she has been on the Esbilac. She's gone from 41 G to 68 G in 4 days due to malnutrition and dehydration. I just got the Fox Valley 32/ 40 in the mail tonight. Do I switch her to that or wait for the 20/50 to come in on the 11th? She is urinating every time she eats and also pooping. Poop is regular consistency and ranges from dark yellow to Brown

    I'd just use the Esbilac I see no reason to add heavy cream but others here can comment on that.
    Unfortunately the FV 32/40 isn't good to use anymore.
    The FV 20/50 can be used after eyes are opened at approx 5weeks of age.

    Thank you! She was 41 grams when she came to me and is up to 68-70 grams now. I will stick with the Esbilac and move to the 20/50 when her eyes open.
