Hi Patience, thanks for your question. I think some of the original question may have been lost in transmission as all we see on this end is "Now that he seems to be tolerating food, how much goat milk can he have?" Was there more to your question?
Good morning Patience,
Thanks so much for requesting me
How is Simon today?
How much goat milk have you been giving up to now?
What food are you syriging? A/D?
Is he eating anything on his own?Any diarrhea?
This IS Terri......how can I help Simon?
That is GREAT news! I am SO HAPPY to hear it.
How much goats milk has he been getting up to now?
OK, if he laps it up on his own,there is no limit. Let him have as much as he wants as long as he does not have diarrhea.
It is keeping him well hydrated plus providing potassium which strengthens his muscles.
If you are syringing A/D keep in mind its thick.....so dilute it to make gruel. Perhaps he will lap it up if its thinner.
You SAVED Simon''s life so bless you and keep up the awesome care of him!
If you need me I will be here for you.
That sounds great.......does he like it that way?
What food was he eating before he got sick?
Does taste of the wild make canned food?
Does he like tuna?
Tuna water is good for him. It is hydrating and replaces his electrolytes.
What about trying some fish based canned food?
Let's get a can of Little Friskies classic seafood or mariner's catch smooth pate canned food.
You can get it in the supermarket or Walmart.
Maybe he will like it better.
GREAT, let me know how he reacts to fish
