Good afternoon, and thanks for your question. My apologies for the length of time it has taken for someone to get in touch with you concerning Koala. I just logged in and saw your post. Do you still need some assistance?

Hello again! If you still need some help, I have an important question for you that may be related to Koala's behavior. You mentioned that the Mother cow had a difficulty with milk production. Did Koala drink any of the cow's milk when first born, or was she given the formula plus some of the cow's milk within the first 24 hours? Was the cow's milk initially a bit thicker than normal and yellow in color?

Thanks,

-Dan C., DVM
