Why would a 3-week old orphaned baby mouse suddenly become hyperactive and start losing hair in patches after being fed goat's milk or heavy cream diluted with skim milk?

EVERYONE knows about goat milk and babies. You can't feed 3-week old human babies goat milk either or they get hyperactive and start losing hair too. I tried it with my nephew and happened just like you said.

Actually, the reason is because goat milk contains antibodies that mice are allergic to. Their hair falls out because it is an allergic reaction to the foreign antibodies in the milk. The hyperactivity may or may not be due to the milk, or just because the mouse is getting older and more sexually mature. At 3 weeks old, mice are usually weaned anyway, so you should just start feeding solid foods such as grains (non-sugary cereals, barley, oats, hamster/mouse food from pet store).

Apparently the accelerated spoilage in lower fat milks has to do with the displacement of the fat to water ratio. Because of this, lower fat milks usually contain more lactose than higher fat milks. The more lactose there is, the faster the milk will spoil.

Is enriched skim milk available in californi?

Vitamin A and D fortified skim milk is most certainly available in CA.

Most milk in the United States is fortified but this wasn't the question being asked. I have also been on such a search for enriched skim milk. This is skim milk that has added calcium and some other minerals added to it. Generally 2x more calcium then regular milks. It is thicker and made white so it is more visually pleasing.

It tastes better then normal skim milk, much the same as 2% milk and is great eaten on cereal unlike watery tasting skim milk. In Fresno and other surrounding areas I have not seen it. Call or write to your local milk producing dairy and ask them to add this to their product line.

If there are enough letters to folks like Producer's in Fresno they might be open to starting this line of products. Enriched Skim milk tastes great and you can feel good about drinking it. It is an easy way to get rid of saturated fats and cholesterol. It is a great nutritional choice. If only California Dairies would would let Californian's get as happy as the cows by letting us have this choice. Great question!
