This is the best formula for raising baby squirrels. I also use it to supplement my adult pet squirrel. It is easy to mix and use, and smells (and tastes) yummy. I recommend Fox Valley to anyone raising a baby mammal.

I've been caring for a baby that was abandoned after the nest tree was cut down, the siblings died, and the mama ran away. I estimate she was about a week old when we got her. For 5 days I fed her Esbilac, and it almost killed her. She wasn't gaining weight, she became weak, she basically looked like a tiny little skeleton...I felt terrible; she had been in better condition when she came into my possession. On the 4th day I ordered Fox Valley formula on a rush delivery, but still had to find something to feed her until it was delivered. I got Pro Biolac kitten milk replacer from my vet and it worked miracles (I'm including this bit in case someone needs something to feed a little one while they wait on FV), if I hadn't got the Pro Biolac, she would've died that night. There's no doubt in my mind. I finished out that small container and started FV a couple days ago. She absolutely loves it. She's gained more weight and her stools have become much more regular and normal on FV than they were on the kitten milk replacer.
Would def. recommend it to someone raising a squirrel. :)

I have a very young squirrel, likely a nest fall, and he is doing fine with this product. The folks at Henry's are an excellent source of advice. All in all a great company.

Our squirrels are so healthy. We get them more dead than alive, and the Fox Valley Day One formulas are the best. They love it!!!!

I raised my first baby squirrel on Esbilac and he did ok, but did not thrive the way the triplets I have on this do. It mixes much easier, I don't have to add anything to it, and it costs half as much. Win all the way around.

I have been a squirrel rehabber for fourteen years. Started out as a complete novice. Now I feel I could write a book. The squiirels really do well on this milk replacer and it is easy on their system.

This product came highly reccomended so I bought it. I had no problems with this and neither did my squirrel, Talula. I followed the directions very carefully and this helped save her life and keep her well nutritioned. She had a steady weight gain and shinny coat of black fur.
