Here's some info recently shared by peep from some of her rehab classes:
Here are a couple of things that come to mind:
for chronic diarrhea not associated with dietary problems try Flagyl (Metronidiazol), it’s better suited to secondary infections caused by parasites. More effective than Albon. In some cases we’ve even dosed with a combination of Flagyl and Albon.

Lactose Ringer solution can be given orally for hydration. It’s more effective than pedialyte.

When I have to sub-q a bird or flyer, I use and insulin needle – there is less chance of the fluid leaking back out

For wound care use Dermagen ointment, it has 3 long acting antibacterials, anti-fungal and steroid. Only has to be applied once every 2 days.

The Pet-Ag products have gotten to be too unstable for us to use anymore. We lost over 20 baby raccoons that were on KMR. We’re using Fox Valley exclusively and every animal is thriving. The only time anyone has had to amend the formula with cream or yogurt is in cases of extreme emaciation.
