These were fantastic and Oreo loved them!
This has been an immense help in dealing with MBD.
My squirrel had MBD and this kit saved him!! I followed the directions and I am happy to say that he is recovering. The people at Henry's were also super helpful in answering my questions. Absolutely fantastic product!!
My church rescued a baby squirrel, who's mother never returned for her. Even though I had no experience with squirrels, I've rescued many different types of baby animals throughout my life, so I volunteered to take her home. I was not aware of how many things that could go wrong. I was up day and night, with feedings, researching, calling anyone I could find for help, but they either didn't have room for her, or didn't have enough knowledge about it. Her health was deteriorating everyday, I was desperate. I found out about Henry's Pets from a squirrel rehab discussion board. I finally figured out she had developed MBD. I immediately ordered this kit, while giving tums in the meantime. She had good days and bad, she was definitely a fighter. The order finally arrived, and I was able to give her the treatment for one full day. Apparently she was too far gone by that point, and she passed away early the next morning. I was so upset, I wanted nothing more that to save her, however, caring for her was one of the most rewarding, interesting, sweet, and blessed times in my life. If I ever get the chance again, I will definitely take it. Thankfully I will be much more knowledgeable next time around. Henry's Pets offers a plethora of beneficial information and products to help a baby squirrel grow up healthy and thrive. Thanks Henry's!!
Recommended by our vet to cure a calcium deficiency problem with our pet squirrel.
My flying squirrel HATES the taste of the powders no matter what I mix them in to, but they made an immediate difference for her. Seriously, follow the directions for emergency treatment as soon as you notice MBD behaviors. Her reaction to the Tums (within 4 hours!) confirmed what was wrong, and I ordered this kit. When it came, her strong negative reaction to the powders meant cleaning out her stashes and following the directions was really important. I found drying out the little balls of medicated food (babyfood, nutbutters, yogurt, tried them all) helped in terms of getting them to a better texture. This kit was definitely what she needed.
I still don't know about the Picky Blocks. She absolutely loves grabbing them first thing, but I've noticed she doesn't actually eat them so much as she just...tears them apart. But she's enjoying herself? Jury's out on what they're doing for her.
I’m not doubting that these are fantastic nutritional supplements and food, they just were not palatable for my particular squirrel. She’s never had anything like this and I think that’s why she refused to eat them. On the upside after 7 days of calcium gluconate injections and eating calcium rich food items she is much better and I think we have solved our problems with lack of UVB light with a new lamp In her nest. I appreciate the product , but for us it was unfortunately throwing money into the wind.
My squirrel Punky is on the road to recovery thanks to Henry's! I thought I was going to lose her but she has improved rapidly after using this kit and changing her diet. Thank you Henry!
Great product. Great service.
