This is the best formula for my squirrels by far. I am still a little new to being a rehabbed for squirrels but I have not had 1 baby squirrels that did not take to this fomula. They love it lol my daughter calls it squirrel crack lol haha.
The powder is very convenient and easy to mix.
The formula contains “ dried corn syrup solids” and a few other chemicals that I am very unsure of..
The first time I fed my squirrels the formula I mixed just a small amount in with the Goat Milk Formula.
One of the squirrels belly was very hard after the feeding.
Also , the squirrels act super chaotic , hyper and mean after eating this formula.
I switched back to GMF and they act much better .
Because I’m not sure of the nutritional value they are receiving from the GMF I again have tried the FVF & again they are crazy hyper , they eat a bit more of the FVF but they act like toddlers on a sugar high!!!
I’m not quite sure what to do .....
Baby squirrel loves this, he was 3 weeks old when I found him didn't think he was going to make it, but this milk has him growing and healthy.
This is the best formula I’ve ever used. Smells good too.
great for squirrel's. I have six and they love it.
I made sure to make super super hot (boiling) water to mix with the formula powder and it never clumped or "cemented" as I read in comments all over. I did make it when he needed to be fed and I never let it sit longer than the 1 usage I needed. Id always make a fresh batch every time feeding time was.
This milk has saved several squirrels that has fell out of nests. Thank you for a great product.
My squirrels love these and I feel like they are healthy for them.
