Scared that out flyer may be sick or even dying! Help please

Scared something is wrong with our flyer I'm afraid. I have only fed her dried fruit and acorns because I knew no better. She has been acting down all day. I just gave her a half of a slice of an orange. I'm worried though. She let me put her on my chest and rub her head. She was closing her eyes like it was putting her to sleep. She has never been so calm. What can I do to find out if she's ok? She is a wild flyer that I just rescued less than two weeks ago.

You need to get her some sweet potato baby food, and some calcium in her. They sell rep-cal at pet stores and maybe walmart, that is a good source of calcium. Read this forum

Or this one. Try to remain calm, and just pick one treatment.

I wouldn't assume MBD in a wild adult you've only had 2 weeks. Here are symptoms to look for: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=6933

After reading that, it's does sound a little more (and I'm praying) like "freezing" I can't give her too much calcium can I?

I hope that I haven't waited too late and hurt her.

P~Nuts only symptoms are she won't come out of her pouch, won't eat, and lets me handle her. I put her on my chest last night and rubbed her head until she went to sleep. I'm going to find her some calcium today.

No, it is not. The diet section does not mention green leafy vegs which is probably their major food source.

Yes, you can. Too much is as bad as too little.

What kind of green vegetables should I get her? Where do I find that?

So sorry to hear this. With a wild flyer, there is no telling what was going on. You did your best and that's all you could do. I'm sure she had her best 2 weeks of her life with you.
