    Pet Stores are closed.poly is what I came get rite now. I'm not sure how I feel about syringe feeding or watering. As the smallest cvs had probably won't due. I was able to get him to open his mouth to receive two drops of water. How do I administer the poly?

    They did nor have tubes. i got poly v sol and baby food. the dropper that came with the poly is tiny. A 1ml syringe. After watching several videos, each twice I made my first attempt. 11:45pm - 25ml of water. Success! Next I gave him a drop of poly. And then .75ml water, .25ml at a time. Finally time for baby food. .75ml 2x, .50ml at a time. After each time he was given baby food I offered him water, he gladly took a sip. "Source feeding went well. Now how often do I feed him, and give poly?

    I do vitamins once a day. Water is more important than food right now, so get as much into him as possible.
