Make sure first that you are eliminating any other possbilities for your babys reason for not eating. Does he have a sunning area? Is there enough water in your tank? Also make sure check the water temperature. Normal temp should be between 82-85F for sick or young turtles. A sustained temp. between 65-72F can contribute to loss of appetite and cause respiratory infection. Try small live feeder fish. Crickets only as a treat. Chopped green beans, carrot tops, dandelion. Make sure is is getting enough calcium and minerals. Cuttlebones are good.

I raised a litter of 4 baby squirrels. I would feed them 2 or 3 times a day. You can tell when they are done eating when their bellies are big and round and sometimes (depending on the squirrel) they will just stop eating on their own.

If you feed it small crickets, then he should be eating about three crickets a day. If you feed it large crickets; which you shouldn't be doing at the baby age; then about one or two. However, I strongly suggest the baby crickets. When he gets bigger, then he can graduate to two big crickets.

no you shouldn't feed your turtle dog kibble.

You can't ·Automatically as a mother is eating the child is being fed

it matters if you your rabbit is a baby because if its a baby their mother will feed them until they get old enough to feed them selves or if your rabbit is an adult they eat nuts and veggies and if their not eating that means that their sick or do not like the food you are feeding it.

no, the baby will just feed off of your body. Like your fat then your muscle. DO NOT DO THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!It could not only hurt you, but hurt the baby, because the baby will be born small and sick

Crickets and meal worms from a pet store initially; (1) chick will devour 100s of crickets thus buying bulk online is affordable and having them on hand makes rescuing the birds doable. A temporary alternate; boiled eggs mashed and served via bigger syringe with the needle removed.

You have to feed him milk three to four times a day and feed your baby fruit pulp and rice cereal three times a day to stay healthy. The food proportion varies from baby to baby according to their built and weight

Your turtle can eat feeder fish.
