Mixing directions: Add powder to warm water (l00 F). Blend until powder is dispersed in water. Feed soon after mixing. Store any leftover formula in refrigerator and feed within 24 hours. Mixing directions are based on volume, not weight, measurements.
Mix 1 part powder to 2 parts warm water. Feed 1 1/2-2 teaspoons per one ounce bodyweight daily, divided into 4 to 6 feedings. Gradually decrease both the quantity of milk formula and number of feedings per day as weaning approaches.
This seems to work very well. My only issue was that the bag is a metallic material that punctures easily, so I had to transfer the powder. That is no reason not to purchase, though. The squirrels grew well and thrived on it, which is what counts.
I like this formula a lot, especially since Esbilac now has to be mixed 24 hours in advance. My only complaint is it’s hard to mix without lumps, but my squirrel is doing well on it.
My babies love this. It has a nice vanilla scent and mixes smoothly leaving no lumps. I highly recommend Fox Valley and Henry's Healthy Pets
Fox Valley is the only formula our wildlife rehab group will use on our orphaned babies. It's nutritionally the best and priced perfectly.
So nice to have a formula that is so good for baby squirrels. Easy to use and store and the babies love it
Although my little baby didn't make it long after I found her, she did love this formula! It smells good and she was able to digest it very well. This helped her little belly process correctly, which she wasn't doing prior to. Shipping was also very speedy from time of purchase to arrival.
Thank you so much for having this formula made specially for baby squirrels. Chip loves it and in a couple of weeks she's put on weight and is looking very healthy and cute. She seems happy, playful, and very lively! Thanks again.
Baby squirrels love it, put on weight on it very well without any digestion irregularities. Perfect feeding and toileting.
Our tree squirrel always looks forward to his formula. His fur coat looks handsome & he is healthy, happy and rambunctious as ever! So grateful for this product. Takes the guess work out of making formula for our little guy. Thank you Fox Valley!
