After doing considerable research and based on the squirrel babies I've raised, I decided to stick with Esbilac (mixing it with water and whole whipping cream). This has always produced healthy squirrels for me and so far my new baby is doing great on the Esbilac. **I only selected 3 stars because I had to select something. I don't feel it's fair for me to give it best, worst or average since I didn't use it.
Henry's Response: Different babies can thrive on different formulas, especially under 4 weeks of age. We're glad you found a formula that works well for this baby. We do like the all-natural ingredients in Fox Valley, as well as the great price. If you decide to try the Fox Valley, please let us know how it compares.

My wife and I are raising orphaned squirrels for the third time now, and continue to use FV Formula through Henry's Pets It has always done wonders for the little ones. They love the formula, and it simply keeps them healthy and strong. It's the only formula I would recommend.

My little baby squirrel loves this. It is easy to mix and smells good too. And he is a very picky eater

You won't find a better milk replacer for baby squirrels anywhere. I've raised several orphaned babies and it's so easily accepted it's almost miraculous. I used to mix different things to get what came closest to proper nutrition for baby squirrels and rabbits but none of them came close to this formula. They gain weight and are healthy and happy all throughout weaning. Can't beat it!

Our 5 week old rehab squirrel gobbles this formula down. Noticeable difference compared to what we were using the first few days. His poops are much more consistent and "normal" too.

Great formula! All the babies adapt to it quickly and drink it up!

This formula is great for making lovely chubby babies with silky fur and bright eyes.

I read this formula would make my squirrel babies grow up fat and sassy, and boy has it! They love this stuff! And it has helped raise them to be fat, healthy, plumpy squirrels. Henry's has been great for all our squirrel needs - miracle nipples, rodent block, formula, etc. Fast delivery and great customer service. Thanks!
