I tried another brand of formula before trying FV and my baby did not do well on it. He had constant diarrhea and had troubles gaining weight. Tried the homemade goats milk version and he did well on it for a little while until he became constipated. Once I found Fox Valley 20/50 he did amazing. Consistent weight gain, perfect bowels, lots of energy, it mixes well, and he loves it! I truly appreciate the affordable pricing and fast shipping that Henry's provides!
Excellent formula for raising squirrels. Henry's has fast shipping.
This is the perfect formula for squirrels over 4 weeks old. It mixes smoothly, smells wonderful and my babies love it. They have gained weight and have become extremely active due to drinking this great formula. Thank you for caring for the nutrition, safety and comfort for the animals in all of your products.
Baby squirrels do really well on the FV 20/50. Happy healthy & fat.
I will update the review when we’ll have a chance to try the formula
I ordered two cozy cubes my two squirrel babies Chip and Dale love them they will even lay on top of them two ! They also loved the hazelnut sticks I ordered them ! Thank you Henry’s again for top notch products !
Our little guy is growing so fast with the formula! It blends easily and is so smooth, not gritty like some powdered formula. A++ Thank you!
I appreciate the fact that 20/50 is convenient and supplies the nutritional needs of my rescue squirrels. However, I'm not in love with the new formula. Not sure what changed, but it's not the same as in 2019. I have to watch carefully for bloat on the younger squirrels. Once they are 5 wks old, this does not seem to be a problem. This is still my go-to for keeping my rescues healthy.
This is the best and really only option to consider for nursing baby squirrels. I've weaned little ones from homemade goatmilk formula to this with great success that go on to be released. Make sure to read all of the great information on baby squirrel care and feeding that is on the site because it's super helpful for those with little and no experience.
