Multi-Momma

Is multi-momma ok to use as formula? I just acquired a 2 week old.

I have never heard of it, and nothing showed up when I Googled it, so my guess is going to be 'No'. You can order Fox Valley powdered formula on line. Are the babies dehydrated? You need to feed them Pedialyte for the first day, then start them on formula. Please read our 'How To' section on raising orphan flyer pups for the information viewtopic.php?f=52&t=206&p=742#p742
you will need to keep these babies alive and healthy. What state are you in? Maybe we have someone close enough to help you.

Oh yes - Welcome to NFSA.

OH hay I found that multi-momma on a blue bonnet web site or something like that but I'd still go with fox valley. Funny Judy it was the first thing that popped up when I logged onto the search engine :D

Yes, try to find a rehabber with flyer experiences, if you aren't one. Two week old pups are EXTREMELY difficult to save.

I found it on this site, but I can't say I'm fond of encouraging release at 7-8 weeks old. :?

Great ... I always like references to other sites posted especially when copyrighted.

Me either. They are not considered to be adult until 12 weeks. That seems way too young.

Well it so happens that I agree I didn't read the hole thing so I didn't see the release age I think 12 weeks is probably old enough but 7 to 8 is just too young, I agree.
