I forgot to put in my last post. I just put new pictures of the coons on our website, http://all-gods-creatures.tripod.com/. I only got a few group photos but I want to get some individual ones soon.

Aaaaw, they are so adorable, I can't wait to get some! Thanks for all the info! Does anything speak against using Esbilac on them?

In the book I bought "Wild Mammal Babies" they say that if the coons don't do well on KMR you can use Esbilac but it seems they don't say it should be used otherwise,but if you can use it then it seems like maybe you could use it to begin with.most places I've read usually suggested feeding dog food to the adult coons so I don't think puppy formula sounds like it wouldn't work.

I hope I get one soon, so I can practice, hehe.

Say, do you have a standard admission form for the different species? I know I'm supposed to keep records, but they neglected to send me any forms with the permit (even though it said they are attached) and what I found online I couldn't either get to work or it was insufficient.

Do you have the book " minimum standards of wildlife rehabilitation? If not go to the google search and type in minimum standards of wildlife rehabilition pdf file. You can print the whole book that way. There is a sample admission form in there. I changed it quite a bit, I just have a place to write what kind of animal, the date I got it, the name address and phone number of the person who brought it to me, why they picked it up, where they picked it up, the date of when they picked it up, If they previously fed it anything and if so what, and then lastly do they want the animal to be released where it was found. Of course the last question depends on if it would be best for the animal to be released near where it was found.
I am sorry I haven't gotten new pictures yet. The coons are really growing. All but one are eating like pigs and doing great. Right now one of the best eaters has suddenly decided that she does not want to eat at all period. I have to use a syringe to feed her 2 oz of formula. And she still fights that. I don't know why she is doing that. I even trying changing her formula hoping the new taste would peak her interest but that didn't help at all.

Ya, I have the standard thing...but I thought that one was for birds.

The TX Parks and Wildlife Dep. doesn't seem to want name and address of the people who brought the animals, nor do I plan to take them down each time somebody brings something in. I never let people inside my house, I always go outside and take the animal off their hands while they are either still in the car (drive by or drive through lol) or at my door, so it's hard to take down all that information when they are holding an animal that needs help right away.

However, I wanted to keep better records for myself, so I can look back, have some sort of statistics etc. I guess I'll just go with good ole Excel.

That looks like the it is the annual report form. It isn't at all like our annual report though. We are required in Indiana to get the name, address, and phone number of anybody who brings us an animal and that has to be included on our annual report.
The form in the book is for birds but I just used it for a general idea about how to make my own. I just write it out on binder paper. I also have a seperate sheet I use to keep track of the ongoing care of the animal. Although I must admit once they are all going strong there isn't much to report. But I use it to record worming dates, any medications, milestones such as spending time outdoors, eating some solid food ect.

That's what I thought it would be like here too. Maybe that form is in addition to the other stuff? I think I better call there or email and make sure.
