Re: New Charge

Too cute! I am so glad you are getting into rehabbing. You really did do an amazing job with Miracle to keep her alive as long as you did.

At that age, I still give my possies formula in a lap...

Re: Brazilian Opossum

Possie mouths are funny how they come unsealed. I don't think the hole on the side is unusual at all. Her little hole for a mouth will gradually open up until her mouth is unsealed and she can open...

Re: Brazilian Opossum

It must be so cool watching her grow and develop. I remember my first pinkie squirrel I had notes all over the place on when her ears opened, her teeth came in, her eyes opened, she got fur, all...

I am not sure about the milk replacers you have there, but ours in the states all (at least the ones I have seen) have the directions to mix 2 parts water to 1 part powder for the end mixture. No...

Re: Brazilian Opossum

The ratios to use are powder to water, not mixed formula to water. So you would start your little one off on 4:1 (4 parts water to one part powder) then you move to 3:1 after they have adjusted to...

Re: Brazilian Opossum

The easiest way I have found to measure the amounts and avoid the confusing conversions (not sure if your conversions were right or not, didn't really figure it out) is to use 2 of the same size...

Re: Brazilian Opossum

I have been told that the heavy cream doesn't contain lactose. It is the fat from the milk. That is why it is important to make sure it is just cream and not skim milk then cream (some heavy cream...

Re: Brazilian Opossum

Did you mean 3 or 4 by 3/4 or .75? Hopefully 3 or 4 because 21 ccs water with .75 tsp. powder would be way to dilluted.

Thoughts on the condensed milk... I know of someone who swears by it with...

Re: Brazilian Opossum

That is great news. Are you using the puppy formula? I think 3:1 may be better than 2:1 for her on the puppy formula. Of course, you have had her for 12 days now, so you probably have a good feel...

Re: Brazilian Opossum

She should be on 3:1 (3 parts water to one part powder) and that is the mix she should stay at. Opossums have sensitive digestive systems and need everything dilluted more than other mammals, so 3:1...

Re: Brazilian Opossum

I am pretty sure that possies and other marsupials do not clean out their pouch at least not well. When you get older babies in they are often yellowish from being covered in poop (gross I know, but...

Actually, surprisingly, as long as it is already a liquid, the fat and protein levels are good on what you are using! Looks a little low in vitamins though. Do you have brewer's yeast? You could...

Sorry to hear you had a scare. I lost my last tiny possie on day 5, it was so heartbreaking because I had given him my all and he seemed to be doing so good and then he bloated and died. Just watch...
