Well, what I did was take some Cheerios and let them soak in water for two days. I then let my little babies lick it up. They're only a week old. I feed them kitten formula from Wal-mart or a pet store. If you don't have that, I successfully kept them alive for a couple of days with a mixture of …milk, vegetable oil (dash) and honey (two dashes). I soaked a piece of paper towel in it and they would suck on the towel. Now, I am feeding them the formula with an eyedropper. They will lick it off my hand and also suck the milk from a washcloth. If you get the mice wet with the milk while you are feeding them, clean them off with a Q-tip dipped in warm water. Simulate their mother licking them. Then be sure to dry them off as well as possible with a tissue. (MORE)
Baby mice should be fed by their mothers until they are ready to start eating solid foods, which they do on their own terms. Until then, just make sure the mother has a ready supply of seeds and regularly has other foods available to eat - enough to cater for her and her baby, because she's got to m…ake the milk. (MORE)
Answer . feedings should be between 1 and 2 eye-droppers full of watered down soy baby formula every 3 hours during the day, and the same amount once or twice in the night
not a lot, just a little and then if it eat its all then give it some more until you have excess food then scoop it out :)
It depends on what kind of formula you choose. Name brands run about $20-30 per can of the dry powdered formula, where their store brand equivalents are about $10-15... and they are nutritionally equal. I suggest taking a look at the nutritional information labels and comparing for yourself.
You have to feed it baby wild bird food. You can get at a pet store and get a syringe to feed it with.Then, you have to add warm water, but make sure the water is not too hot. Then, mix up the food with the water, and you load it up into the syringe. Then when you feed it, it will let you know how m…uch it wants to eat. The mother will feed it. (MORE)
First answer: I think veggies and grass Another answer: If the babies aren't weaned and they've been orphaned/abandoned, you have to feed them a milk replacer. Do not give them cow's milk: it will kill them. You can use goat milk instead. It's terribly difficult to hand-rear wild baby rabbits: fo…r their sake, you should contact a local authority (like a chapter of the House Rabbit Society or another rabbit rescue group, or a wildlife rehabber, or a government agency, or an animal shelter, etc). Many people find wild baby rabbits and think they've been abandoned, when really they haven't. Then they take the rabbits and basically kill them, because they usually don't survive without their mothers. Mother rabbits don't stay with the babies all day: they only visit once or twice a day to feed and groom the babies. Don't take the babies unless you're positively sure they've been abandoned. If they're warm and plump, leave them alone! If they're cold and wrinkly, they may be abandoned: to do to a test, criss-cross some sticks over the nest, and wait a day to see if they've been moved by the mother rabbit or not.

without teeth: don't try to do it yourself, call a petshop, or a wildlife rehabilitator now! With teeth: but a gallon fish tank,mouse food,and heat pad. Turn the hat pad on low, place the tank on-top of the heating pad, place two to four inches of shredded toilet paper in the bottom of the tank, c…ut the center of a toilet paper roll in half to make a tunnel, place one half under a thin layer of paper, the other half on-top of the shredded paper, and then get a water/soda bottle cap, place inside of a jam jar cap or a larger lid (to catch any water that is spilled, and fill center cap ONLY with CLEAN water. Now get some cheese (American) tear into four quarters, and then put two quarters aside in the fridge, and one quarter in the half tunnel on top of the paper, and the other in the burred tunnel.

It depends on its age, whether it is getting any milk from its mother or not. If you are providing all its feed then the milk formula should have a dosage and mixing rate on the bag.
Mother rabbits feed their babies milk . For the mother to be able to do that, you have to feed her a healthy rabbit diet. (See the related question linked below about what to feed a rabbit.) If the mother rabbit isn't eating well or is otherwise unhealthy she will become stressed and may kill her b…abies. Once the babies are weaned , they need to have unlimited access to alfalfa hay, high-quality pellets, and fresh water. At 12 months you can start introducing fresh greens, but only in tiny amounts, and only one at a time (watch for adverse reactions, like gas or diarrhea, for about a week before trying a new green). Treats, like fruits and sugary veg (like carrot), should be avoided until about 6 months . At 7 months you should start slowly transitioning them to an adult diet. (MORE)
Hi, my baby is 7 months and her schedule is as follows;. 7am - 200 mls formula. 8am - baby cereal mixed with 60mls formula. 9-11 sleep. 11am - offer 120mls formula but she rarely takes it at this time for some reason. 11.30/12 mix left over formula with baby rice and jar of fruit.. 1-3pm sleep…. 3pm - 200mls formula. 4.30-5 half hour nap. 5pm - meat & veg and yoghurt for desert. 6pm - bath. 7pm 200mls formula. 7pm-7am bed (MORE)
Baby rabbits should drink their mother's milk. Once they're weaned (at about 6 weeks), baby rabbits should have unlimited access to three things: . water . alfalfa hay, or an alfalfa-grass mix (like alfalfa-timothy) . high-quality pellets (see question below for details about pellets) At …12 weeks, small amounts of fresh dark leafy greens (like romaine lettuce) can be introduced. Always introduce new foods carefully. Start with just a bite or two, and stick to one new food at a time (wait a week or two before the next new food). Day by day, little by little, increase the portion size. Baby rabbits don't need a big salad: only about 1/2 ounce for an average-sized baby (baby giant breeds, a bit more; baby dwarf breeds, a bit less). At 6 months , tiny amounts of fresh fruit and non-leafy vegetables (like carrot) can be introduced as a treat. A small bite or two is enough! Too many treats will make a rabbit sick. Between 7 and 13 months , rabbits should slowly transition to an adult diet. See the related links/questions below for details and helpful info. (MORE)
you should feed it pinkies they are baby mice you ussualy get them at the pet store they are healthy for the snake
microwaving baby formula, although babies find the taste more appetizing, is a personal choice. there have been studies that say babies can die at an earlier age from microwaving baby formula. it is much healthier for healing power in a young child to microwave it. so you choose whether you want a h…ealthy baby, but one that will most likely die early or an unhealthy baby, who will most likely live a long life, unless he needs healing power, and has very little, it is a hard and sometimes regretful decision, but its one that every mother needs to make.

Give him/her 1 carrot every 3 days if they ate it or change it every 3 days and a little pile of lettuces every 2 days or change it every 2 days.
If you are serious about helping this baby, find a wildlife rehabilitator. You can find them online by state. . I am a wildlife rehabilitator and as cute as they are, you do NOT want to do this. I know. They are adorable when they are small...but befor each feeding, you have to rub their genitals …to make them pee or their bladders will explode. You can't feed them from a bottle because they are hogs and suck up milk till it comes out their nose and if they don't sneeze enough, they can get pnuemonia and die. And you have to feed them 5x a day but sometimes they won't take food when you think they should and you end up giving them feedings during the night until you get them hungry enough without killing them, to eat when you think they should. When they are full, you have to make them pee again-at least until they get older...and you have to keep rubbing while they pee or they'll stop when you stop. Oh...and you'll need a gram scale to make sure they are gaining the proper amount of weight. They'll slowly die if they aren't gaining enough. You have to keep them warm, but not too warm or they'll die and if they get too cold...they'll die. . Here's some good information: . http://www.orphanedwildlifecare.com/woodchuckcare.htm I hope anyone thinking it would be easy to raise a baby groundhog reads this and changes their mind...;-) (MORE)
about a teaspoon every hour or hour and half. They fill up quickly. Usually they go to bed at about 9 and then are up from 6 onward looking forward to food.
on average every three hours it should have a 4 to 6 oz.bottle, in a day about 40oz.
Yes, if it is abandoned by its mother you have the chance to save its life. If you find a abandoned baby pigeon feed it bread soaked in milk or water with tweezers. Take a Cotton bud and put it in a bowl of water, then let the pigeon suck on the Cotton part. that will give it enough water. feed it e…very half an hour or when it seems hungry. depending on how old the pigeon is you will need to let it free when it can fly. Pigeons learn to fly at about 4 weeks, so let it fly about in your house when it is about 3 weeks and a half. if it has got all its flight feathers and you are confident it can fly very well and find food for itself, then let it free in your garden!

Buy another baby dormouse and put him in the blender, then feed the other dormouse to him(he will not know the difference)
A baby three months old should be getting fed breast milk as it isbetter for your baby. It has all of the nutrients and vitamins ababy needs. A baby should get about 4 ounces of formula.
I think your hamster is feeding the baby..but maybe you doesn't realise it or doesn't know it...Hamster are nocturnal, they sleep in the day and wake up in the night.http://wiki.answers.com/Are_hamster_a_nocturnal_animals#ixzz19q8JCj2v
the question is un ansered but if the babys mice's mom dies then you have to feed it baby milk and it takes atleast 2 months. so does that answer your question?
Swallow milk? No idea what kind of milk that is but if your referring to just milk, you shouldn't give a baby from ages 0-10 months of age any milk because it's thicker then formula milk.. A baby a year older would be ready for milk.. Should seek for doctor advice for any other details..
once a day is good because if you over feed them they will eat it any and die.
It is better for the puppy to be given puppy formula available from the vet.
Its hard to forecast the eating habits of an infant. Very often the amount will vary but will probably reside between 2 to 4 oz. Slightly more or slightly less should be expected depending on mood, time of day, and sleep habits. Try more when the infant first wakes up and measure the difference.
Because if you do not feed your baby it will die and you will have committed a crime for which you will be arrested.
The amount of formula will vary from child to child. Follow the instructions on the formula's packaging and also listen to your baby and talk to your health visitor.
No, it needs its mothers milk to help it stay strong and healthy. The Mother's milk has antibodies in it to protect the kittens from different diseases & viruses. If there is no Mother cat to feed the kitten, then purchase a ready made formula for kittens (not puppies) at a pet store or feed sto…re plus a baby bottle. Heat the formula up to room temperature. Test by putting few drops on the inside of your wrist, if you cannot feel it, then it is room temperature. Do NOT feed the kitten if it is cold, it must be warm before eating or will not be able to digest the food. Feed it every 2 hours and use a warm cotton ball to rub the anus & where it urinates from to stimulate the kitten to urinate & defecate, it cannot do it by itself, the Mother cat would normally lick at it to make this happen. (Ask Paisley response/addition) If you have a litter of kittens with no mother, you need to check with your pediatrician vet or your regular vet if there are no separate specialty vets in the same practice but ask to learn the best course of care but with regards to the need to feed or lose the little, it's best to stop into a livestock or livery store b/c the old-timers who run these stores have been caring for mother-less animals their entire lives and give excellent advice. Our vet took care of everything from babies through geriatric animals though most farmers with livestock have a tendency to put down any animal that reached a geriatric age where the animals are too old or are in too much pain to move. I've done my share of the same as it is much more humane than allowing them to suffer when age and worn out bodies won't allow them to move or function as they did before those last days. FYI: Livestock stores worth their salt, as the saying goes, carries kitten milk on the shelf in power form for mixing and in liquid form to use straight out of the can along with various sizes of bottles and nipples. Most also carry the tick-tock clocks because they work well with kittens along with pups as well. Wrap a tick-tock type of clock w/o the alarm on in a medium heavy small towel b/c it mimics the mother's heart beat and will settle the kittens in well enough. Add a bit of a heat lamp to keep them warm or use a hot water bottle but keep a check on the heated bottle - not too hot/not too cold. It needs to be Mom-cat temperature or warmer to keep the kittens warm. It helps to rub the kittens in a fluffy warm towel to ensure they stay warm to keep from losing any of them. As for the urination and defecation, this can be easily done by wrapping the kitten in a small towel and keeping one hand with the bottle to feed b/c they will be more interested in the food than anything else. You can massage the genitalia to stimulate urination and defecation but don't be too concerned if they don't defecate within the 1st day or so because there is so little food in their bodies and it is milk so they will urinate more than defecate. defecation becomes much more important when introducing soft foods such as canned kitten food, especially when they learn to lap it up although it does help to mix kitten milk with canned food in a low bowl to make it a mushy mix that is easier for lapping than for eating. They will ingest the soft food but slowly at first until they learn how. The biggest concerns in the early weeks is keeping them plenty warm, staying on schedule with their feedings, and changing the covering of whatever container (box, kennel carrier, open kitten breeder box, or even small kiddy pool (guide dog puppies are born in kiddie pools that are sterilized while the mother is in labor then after the birthing process, a second sterilized pool with blankets and plenty of warmers in a sterile environment are available for the switch to make mom & pups comfortable so I would consider a very, very small kiddie pool for the kittens since at this point their eyes aren't open and they can't get out but the "tick-tock" clock wrapped in a towel along with hot water bottle will save you some sleep if you don't have access to an actual mother cat's sounds after giving birth in addition to the heart-beat & mews toward the kittens. It's best to make them feel as at home as possible and you need to take on the position of Mama Cat). I say this because I have nursed regular kittens from bottles as well as helping a bobcat I brought home as a pre-teen who gave birth to more kits than she had teats to feed. Our vet who handled our farm animals set up milk, bottles, mixes, and food that was as close to what a bobcat would need until he could return with more information because it wasn't an every day question or request for assistance he received. In fact, my bobcat assistance was a first for him. The kittens all survived as did the mother and after a bit of help, we taught them to hunt and take down prey (not our farm animals though) but they were hunting, capturing, and eating their prey without any problems so it was well within time for them to go live their lives out at a Wild Life Reserve that was approximately 20mi from where I lived with the hope they would stay on the preserve without attempting to come back to me or come up to people. People are afraid of what they don't understand and the last thing I wanted was someone to kill these beautiful animals I had months to a year invested in both in caring and in my heart - to have some idiot come along and take their lives for their pelts. The ranger who traveled the Wildlife Reserve run across them every now and again and I did as well when I went out on horseback with him. Although, once I ran across the mother bobcat in our pasture land again and once we sort of said our good-byes (she wouldn't come too close to my horse, which I believe was her way of not spooking him, she left in the direction of the reserve with the couple of kits she had with her although they weren't kits anymore at all. They were grown but I recognized each one. We tagged their legs as babies and rotated out nursing from the Mom and nursing from the bottle to be sure that all the kits received their share of the mother's milk to keep them growing and make them strong enough to survive whatever life threw their way, with the exception of an idiot with a firearm. But, I never saw them after that day. I hope they lived a long life and the kits continued to breed and grow in the safety of an area where hunting was not allowed. (MORE)
Any commercially sold fish food can be fed to crappie. Also any insect you can catch and small bits of earthworm are good.
You would probably think i am lyin im not. u want to but it in a squirter and shoot it up his or her Anise
weaning ideally should be started from 6 months.note that weaning is a process and you start supplementary feeds and not withdrawing breast feeding at once, but progressively and ideally you can fully wean by 18 months
It would have different formulations - it is preferable to feed your goat kid specifically produced goat milk formula or if you can't get that full cream powdered milk.
No, you shouldn't feed baby bunnies fruit. Once they're weaned, baby bunnies should have unlimited access to water, hay, and pellets. They shouldn't have any fruit at all until they're about 6 months old. At 12 weeks, you can start introducing, in small amounts, fresh, dark-coloured leafy greens (l…ike Romaine lettuce, and carrot greens); any other vegetable (like carrot, squash, and fruit) should be considered a treat (none until 6 months, and then only in tiny occasional portions). New foods should always be introduced gradually to rabbits, in small portions, one at a time; and you should watch for digestive upset or any other illness. Always search online to find out if any given food is safe: many kinds of fruits and vegetables are dangerous for rabbits! Some rabbits are sensitive to some foods, so watch your rabbit and make sure she's healthy, and bring her to the vet if she falls ill. See the related questions below for more info and helpful links.

Generally, the amount of formula a baby needs is the baby's weight doubled, in ounces to the baby's weight multiplied by 2.5, in ounces. Ideally, feedings would occur more frequently, with smaller amounts each time.
This is dependant on the weight and age of the baby. A midwife or doctor will be able to give you suitable information on the correct amount to give to the baby.
I feed mine chick crumbs ( you can get them from most farm stores). I read in a book that they should have constant access to food and a shallow bowl of water, but mine eat the food as soon as I give it to them, so I tend to just feed them a big meal around 3 times a day. I have had many chicks and …they have all grown up healthy on this! (MORE)
Food should be availabe to ferret 24 hours a day, regardless of age. A young ferret may prefer that the food be soaked to an oatmeal like consistency for ease of eating.
Well I think it depends on the parents. A maternal mom would feed the baby. But a tired mom... Dad youd better take over
At about 4 weeks , bunnies will start weaning and taking nibbles of their mother's hay and pellets. By 6 weeks the rabbits are usually fully-weaned. You don't have to feed them at any particular time: they should have unlimited access to hay and pellets so they can nibble on them whenever they want,… any time of day or night. At 12 weeks , you can introduce dark leafy greens into the bunny's diet. You can do this once a day, in the morning or the evening (mid-day is not good because that's when the rabbits sleep). Introduce new foods carefully because changes in the diet can make a rabbit sick. (Stick to one new food per week or two, start with a bite or two only and gradually increase the portion, and watch for signs of gas or diarrhoea.) Too many greens will make your bunny sick: daily portion for a 3-7 months old rabbit is about 1/2 Tbsp only. Between 7 and 12 months the rabbit should transition to an adult's diet. At this point you can also introduce treats (like fresh fruit), but only in tiny portions. See the related questions below for more details about how to feed pet rabbits. . (MORE)
You should get the deer to the vet for a check up and see if they can supply you with a good substitute for deer milk.

LIVE food - their natural diet is amphibians such as frogs & toads. They are also known to take fish and earthworms - but taking dead food is extremely rare - as they prefer to actively hunt their food than have it offered by hand ! INCIDENTALLY - Whoever asked this question - if you are in… the UK, and you took the Grass snake from the wild - you must return it to the wild - NOW !! ALL native UK reptiles are now protected species by law - and you can be fined , imprisoned or both for taking wild reptiles into captivity ! (MORE)
It will depend on the age and weight of the kittens. Check the formula instructions or ask the vet
Breastfeeding is recommended for the first six months before switching to baby formula. There are more nutrients and health benefits to the baby when using breast milk.
A baby cottontail bunny will typically nurse until the age of 4 or 5 weeks at which time the mother cottontail will wean the baby. After the baby cottontail bunny has been weaned it can easily feed itself on grass and other vegetation that it finds.
There are certainly valid medical reasons why a mother who iscapable of doing so should do so, in general. However, in specific cases, there may be even more compellingmedical reasons why she should not.
