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?

Expert:  Terri replied 1 year ago.

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?

Thanks,

Terri

Right now he is holding down his food. I was just wondering if and how much goat milk can he have?
Expert:  Terri replied 1 year ago.

That is GREAT news! I am SO HAPPY to hear it.

How much goats milk has he been getting up to now?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have been mixing in 3cc in with the other stuff all equal parts but I had a little maybe 2cc's left over and l put it under his nose and it seems that is the only thing he will lap up.
Expert:  Terri replied 1 year ago.

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.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He doesn't like the ad so it is mixed with equal parts chicken baby food, goat milk, and pedialite to make a loose gruel.
Expert:  Terri replied 1 year ago.

That sounds great.......does he like it that way?

What food was he eating before he got sick?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He's not crazy with any of it but won't eat on his own so we syringe. He was eating taste of the wild kitten crunchy food. I have given him a few morsels to try but he won't touch it or anything he has to chew
Expert:  Terri replied 1 year ago.

Does taste of the wild make canned food?

Does he like tuna?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He only drinks the juice from the tuna and I'm not sure about TOW in cans.
Expert:  Terri replied 1 year ago.

Tuna water is good for him. It is hydrating and replaces his electrolytes.

What about trying some fish based canned food?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'll do anything to keep him alive and he seems to be able to relax when he sleeps.
Expert:  Terri replied 1 year ago.

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.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Will do👍🏻
Expert:  Terri replied 1 year ago.

GREAT, let me know how he reacts to fish
