How do you care for a newborn baby?
If you find a newborn mouse or more you need to get a tall box and poke holes in it first. Then you can get a medicine tube with a squeeze handle and get baby formula and warm milk. If it doesn't eat try again later. If it eats later and you take care of it for a while you need to clean the box ever…y day. If it doesn't eat or anything call a vet and they will try to help. P . S If you don't see the mouse in the box and the box has inside flaps check under the flaps! Hello, If the baby mouse has hair and it's eyes are open you can feed it by using a medicine dropper. You can go to the store and buy similac infant formula (already liquid type for human babies). Follow the directions on the can and store it in a plastic or glass covered container in the rifridgerator. Every time the baby wakes up it will want food. Gently hold it in your hands and watch out for its little tail and whiskers too. It will squek when it wants food. Pull the milk into the medicine dropper. It is not ready yet. You must first get it warm by running it under hot water. Now do not just give it to the baby without testing the temperature on the inside of you wrist to make sure it doesn't feel too hot or too cold just like you would for a human baby. Once it is lukewarm, patiently hold the dropper and gently squeeze a drop of milk in front of the baby head and eyes so he can see and smell it. Be patient as it may take a while for him to try it. If you want to try to get the baby to eat solid food. You can get Gerber Banana 1 for a human baby's first food. Pull it up into the dropper and warm it again and test it again and dangle it and wait for him/her to eat it. Be patient. The baby will usually only eat about five-six drops of banana every hour. Also you can give gerber 1 apple juice warmed up and water. Remember to keep the baby warm but not too warm. I used thermacare heat wraps for (menstrual cramp relief) and it simulated the warmth of a mother and other baby mice. However, if the baby chews on these it is toxic and can kill it. So watch carefully. Also, wrap these in a washcloth to decrease the amount of heat put onto the baby. Plus keep in mind that too much heat will make the baby dehydrated. (MORE)
Keep it in a warm area. With some bedding. If it doesn't have any hair, they are very hard to keep alive. You can feed them some kitten milk from the local pet store. They need to be fed a drop or two out of a eye dropper every 2 hours. They need a heating pad set on low. You need to put them in som…ething that they can't craw out of. You will be suprised. They can craw out of small buckets. Do not get any milk in their nose or they will die. That is what happened to my baby hamster. If they get fur and their eyes open. You can then keep them in a fish tank with bedding and a water bottle with some bird seed. If they are that old you should keep them for a week longer and then let them go. If there is a male and a female the mice will multiply fast. Mine had 3 litters in a week. They have up to 7 mice per litter. And it is very very hard to tell if they are males or females. GOOD LUCK!!!!! If it has a mother then she will do all the work, but if it is an orphan, a newborn mouses first danger is the cold. Mice are born naked and need to be kept warm. But the mouse in a warm container with soft materiel such as cotton wool or bedding on the inside. Have a heat pad or lamp keeping it warm. Feed the baby kitten milk replacement formula about every hour with an eyedropper. As it grows older and begins to grow fur (ten days) you can start offering it solids, try some soft bread, perhaps try soaking it in the milk formula. The mouse will be weaned at three weeks, and will be independent. If you want to keep it, buy a cage, toys, food, a water bottle, and bedding. You may also need to buy your mouse a buddy, when you can tell the mouse's gender, try and get a mouse of the same age and gender. Mice are social creatures and may because very sad if they don't have a buddy. Also give the mice different nest making material. Mice adore making their sleeping nest bigger, better and more comfy, so put shredded paper and paper towel, fabric and other such things. Good luck with your mouse! hi every1 i would just like to correct some of the things said above (wasn't me). 1st of all you should never wean baby mice earlier than 4 weeks old to the exact day of birth. females can't get pregnant until theyre 4 weeks old so at 4 weeks old wean the males (which another thing are really easy to sex) keep the baby girls in with the mothers (if u have their mum) because although they can be weaned at 4 weeks old it is better for females to stay in with the mother untill they are 5 to 6 weeks old. always give the mumy mouse a minimum of 4 weeks break from breeding AFTER she has weaned her pups as it can kill mumy mice,shorten their lifespan and their babies or can cause a real weak mummy and babys. always cull down males aka put them in a container in the freezer its a sad thing but they fall asleep before they die (don't feel a thing). culling the males down will increase the chances of the others surviving,gives them more milk which helps them be healthier plus males are harder to sell better to do it in a way where they can't feel any pain than not being able to rehome them and have them and the other males rip each other to shreds which they will do. also the only way for mice to have 3 or more litters in a week is if there is 3 or more females pregnant at the same time. please for any other information on mice just email me on firstname.lastname@example.org i am a mice breeder and also have experience with rats (MORE)

hi,. 1st thing is to remove the babies/frys to a different tank.. possible a 1 feet x 1 feet tank with a sponge filter.. 2. get minutely grinded fish flakes or u can beat the fish pellets with small beater/hammer /stone and grind them to powder.. 3. fill a small container with this food as u wil …need this powdered food for atleast 2-3weeks.. 4.feed moderate amount as per no of babies.. feeding should be 2-3 times a day.. donot use power filters or any high suction equipment which might kill the fries.. put some plastic plants so the fries can hide and play around.. put some good light . good food light and water wil make them grow fast.. u can add the fries back to main tank after hey are more then 25m long (1 inch). enjoy..

Keep it with the mom in the box until the puppies have opened their eyes. And if you want to hold it, wash your hands because there are some infections that humans can transport to dogs. If you plan to sell the puppies, be sure its at least 3 months old.
Intensive care for a newborn is a special care nursery where only immediate family members are allowed access to the baby. Either the baby was born prematurely or developed complications that need to be monitored. According to my doctor when there was a threat my son would be born too early & requir…e the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), it would cost 7 times more a day than the baby being in the regular nursery & my private room.

just let them be, pu t them somewere where no one really ever goes and cheek on them every once and a while DONT touch them or mommy will kill them The mom will feed them at first and you will know when they want hamster food they will come out of the nest and start taking food.
First, you should take it to the vet and check if it has any diseases and if it has a chance to survive. Depending on it's age, you should probably start it on an infant-sized bottle. Slowly work your way up to wet food, then regular food, if this is a long time arrangement. I suggest JustBorn or Es…bilac. also, you can use goats milk, or make your own:. -1 can evaporated milk (15 oz) 2 egg yolks 1 carton plain yogurt (8 oz) (add 6 oz boiled water and mix well). or -1 can evaporated milk 2 cans water 2 packages unflavored gelatin (dissolved in cold water, heat and blend) 2 beaten egg yolks 1 tablespoon cream (or half and half) 1 tablespoon honey (reduce is stools become loose) Mix. Don't bring and unfriendly or ill dog into your home if you have dogs or kids, lest they get infected with something. (MORE)
The best thing you can do is leave well alone! Rabbits are very good mothers and will care for their kits perfectly by themselves. Just make sure your doe has plenty of good quality hay, veggies and water and let her do her job. Remember a mother bun will only feed her kits once a day, so even if… you don't see her feed them unless the kits look bony they are doing just fine. If you absolutely have to hand rear kits it is good to be aware starting out that the survival rate of hand reared babies is very low, so it should not be attempted unless there is no other option. You will need to contact your vets to get appropriate milk to feed them, they must not be given cows milk. You should try to disturb the rabbit's nest as little as possible, however it is a good idea to check in the nest for deceased kits (baby rabbits) every day or two for the first ten days. During this time, it is not uncommon for kits to die. The mortality rate is rather high for kits (as it is with most rodents) because rabbits reproduce so quickly. Kits often die due to genetic abnormalities, or simply failure to thrive. (MORE)
You try to leave it with its parents to take care of it usually that is the best way. if its an orphan, good luck. try looking on google
Newborn babies tend to sleep lots in the early days so make sure they have a comfortable and firm mattress and swaddle them to keep them warm.
Eat, sleep, cry, and go to the bathroom. As they grow older they will be able to do more.

The mother will take care of it. If there's some problem which means she can't, seek veterinary advice (an animal rescue centre will help) on feeding, housing and so on.
How do you take care of wild newborn baby rabbits. their mother was killed and we don't know what to feed them?
Rabbits are vegetarians. Try asking at your local pet shop for bunny food, and see if they have any hints for you. You could always toss in a small carrot or two as well.
The best way to care for the babies is to feed them human baby formula through a dropper. Other than that keep them in a warm dark enviroment. It's sad, but true, they don't have a very good chance of survival. If they do 'make it' don't worry about letting them go into the wild. Once they are 8-12 …weeks old, nature will 'kick in' and they will be able to fend for themselves. You could also contact your local SPCA for help. (MORE)
You don't. The mother takes care of her young. If you touch them, she will reject them, and that's how you end up in the situation you are now. If you found it in the wild, take it to a humane society. Tell them how you found it, and where it was. They will take care of it. Hope this helps.
The mom will take care of it until its about 4 weeks old then you can take care of it.
\nWarmth, water and small sized grain. They need soft bedding and the best warmth is a heat lamp. It should be warmer than room temperature but cool enough that you can leave you hand under the lamp for a long time without getting too hot.
The best option is to allow the mother to take care of the baby.If the mother will not take care of the baby parakeet then you will have to feed it using a dropper which you can get from petsmart and also get special food to feed the baby also from petsmart .Also be sure to keep it safe from dangero…us stuff and only keep it in the nesting box.

Though they may seem weak, defenseless, and at times, kind of pathetic... well, they kinda are. Boring, too, if you don't know what to do with 'em.\n. \nThere are actually lots of activities you can do with a newborn baby. \n. \nStimulating the senses is the key to having fun with a newborn - and …getting a reaction out of them. \n. \nSight: At first, babies do better with high contrast colors, especially black and white. Watch them stare at high contrast objects you put in front of them... especially black and white pictures with defined outlines. Babies love to look at faces even more than high contrast colors. We are actually programmed to look at and learn from faces as infants. Just put your face up to his/hers (about 12-18 inches away, they are quite nearsighted) and make silly faces... You'll probably get a smile if the baby is over 6 weeks old. \n. \nSmell: This one is trickier; the most fun thing to smell for a baby is pretty much: mom, especially a breastfeeding one. \n. \nTouch: Does the baby grab yet? Kick? There are all kinds of interesting objects to feel, and once baby has started grabbing, it can get fun for him/her to test it all out. \n. \nTaste: Like smell, this one is a bit limited for now. Babies can actually taste differences in mother's milk based on what she's eaten. They also know the differences between formulas. But at this point, they are all pretty much on a liquid diet. \n. \nSound: Sound is probably the quickest way to stimulate an infant since they've been hearing their mother's voice since they were inside the womb - along with all kinds of sounds from within. But now you can have them listen to all kinds of things: ringing bells, rattles, your favorite music... 'Dancing' with a baby to your workout playlist is not only fun for you and stimulating (and bonding) for him/her, but it's also a great way to rock the baby to sleep when you need a break. (MORE)
When a horse is born it is usually a good idea to keep awatch of the newborn to see if the mother is accepting the newborn itself. In many cases horses to accept the newborn so it isn't really a great idea to go and takeit away if it's quite safe and healthy with it's mother it would put to much pre…ssure on the mother and baby and sometimes can lead to horses running into fences and getting hurt. (MORE)
Keep it warm, generally with a heat lamp suspended over them. As they get older gradually raise the lamp. Make sure they have wood chips to nest in, food and clean water. Baby chicks are a lot of fun. I raised my first batch last year, and they are all faithful egg layers now.
For New born baby care you have to choose the best care products tomaintain his skin smooth, supple and nourishing.
I would not give it or any baby, kitten or puppy, cows milk. In the case of a possum, crush up some high protein cat food, dilute with small amount of water and give it in an eye dropper. Dried mill worms would work too, available at pet stores in the lizard/snake food section. No milk. Yogart, gato…rade, strawberries, blueberries. feed it warm milk and raw meat Get a baby animal milk replacer, and a syringe, and let the liquid go slowly into the side of its mouth. Give it some diluted Pedialite as well, and put it in some sort of small mammal sack, with a Snuggle Safe to keep its body temperature up. ( You can get these at PetCo). (MORE)
It depends if you have the mother. If the mother is there the best advice is to LEAVE THEM BE!! Put them in a warm room, and give the mother all she needs (soft blankets, favorite food, lots of water.) If you do not have the mother, you will need some sort of baby bottle to feed the infants, you …will need to keep them very warm, and be there all the time to make sure they are okay. You can get all the necessary equipment from a vet or animal shelter. Animal shelters may even have a nursing cat that will be able to take on more kittens. I got my babies with their mother, so I didn't touch them. They normally have their eyes closed the first week, and can NOT walk at all at first. Then they walk like little turtles and have weak little whimpers. I let their mommy tend to their needs, and now we have 5 extremely strong and healthy cats. (MORE)
Never touch it, you can look at it with a flashlight...don't let the siblings live with it forever. A girl can live with its mom forever, But NOT the boy!
you don't have to care for a baby guinea pig if its mother is with it. if the mother is protecting the baby you don't need to do any thing for the baby. but if you notice the mother isn't interested in the baby then you might have to remove the baby from the hutch and hand raise it but providing it …with milk and dry food. you may also need to stimulate they babys bum to get it too poo and pee you can do this by having a wet cotton ball and wiping around the bum hope this helps (MORE)
Being a hamster breeder as well as a rat breeder, you really don't have to do anything except for make sure she has her own cage before she gives birth, and provide her with something to make a nest (toilet paper works well). Also, make sure you separate the babies before they're 5 weeks old or momm…y might get hungry and eat them. Just be sure they're weaned, and atleast 4 weeks old. Also, don't touch babies for atleast a week after they're born or mommy might reject them and they'll probably die. (MORE)
YOu can go to petsmart and talk to someone there, and they can help you out alot more than i can.
Sing to him the sweetest lullabies you can find. Talc on his little buttocks, feed him with your breast milk, and love, much love.
let the mama bunny do it. is there no mama? then get an empty, uncontaminated eye-drop thing and put instant kitty milk in it and feed them a few drops per day each at the same time each day.

Galactosemia occurs when an enzyme, called 'galactose-1-phosphateuridyl transferase' (GALT) is either missing or not workingproperly so the children are examined carefully for this enzyme
Well look at it this way imagine yourself as a baby now what would people say bout u or maybe express your feelings to your parents tell them how you feel i dont have any siblings so i wonder what it would be like to have a brother or sister
Jaundice is caused by the body having an excess of bilirubin in the blood, which is produced by the normal breakdown of red blood cells. The baby liver is often immature and still developing and cannot pass the bilirubin out of the body at the rate at which it needs to. Also if the baby is premature… it is often more common, and if they are not getting fed often enough to flush out the excess. The excess bilirubin gives the skin a yellow color. (MORE)
In or out of what? Their nest box? They should stay in their nest box until they are able to get out by themselves. Is that your question?

First Watch to see if the mother accepts the foal if she does let nature take it's course! Unless the donkey seems listless and sick don't worry. From my experience on their first day they should NOT eat solid food but SHOULD jump and gait about. They may even rear.
Any 16 year old with or without a child needs to go before a judge to become emancipated.

This is what a judge will ask about and determine if there is income and support f…or a 16 year old mother to be emancipated. (MORE)
Keep them warm, leave out a price of lettuce in a cage for them, maybe a grape or two cut on half, and a bottle cap or something shallow with water in it for them.
Newborns are cared for at the Nurturing Center until they are placed with a family at around one year of age.
just leave them alone and when they are 2 weeks old you'll be able hold them treat the mother like a normal gerbil and never hold the babies before 2 weeks old !!!!!!!!!!!
I keep my newborns in a small cage under a heat lamp in my room for about 2 weeks. I put a layer of shavings and 2 layers of paper towels. They will eat the shavings if they can get to them and its not good for them. I change the paper towels every night and morning if necessary. If they are really …young I grind up their food into a powder. They also get yogurt in the 2nd week and chick grit. You want to introduce them to their water by gently dipping their beak into it until they take a drink. You also need to put a chain or marbles in the water thing so they wont drown. Keep them by an open window but not in a draft. They can get brain damage if they get over heated. Put your hand on the bottom of the cage and hold it there, if your hand gets too hot the lamp needs to be raised. They need a place where they can be away from the heat lamp too I find that if the lamp shines in the middle they get shade in the corners. Hope this helps and have fun : ) (MORE)
keep it in a warm cloth or towel to keep it warm, feed it diluted pedialyte or crushed up cat food and water out of an eye dropper and call a vet immediatly if it has no fur.
The newborn gerbils must stay with their parents for at least a month. Their parents will take care of them, and the mother will feed them her milk. When they turn 3 weeks old, you can start feeding them real gerbil food, cheerios, and canary seed.
you feed it only veggies and cover its cage with a blanket so it feels safe and don't take it outside at all don't leave it lonely .
Actually, the mother will do the caring! You take care of the mom!A newborn rabbit is helpless; blind, deaf, and hairless! Provide a clean, warm nest box (wood) with fresh hay or straw (I use brome hay; works great) inside of it for the mother to be to make her nest in. She will have her babies in t…he nest box hopefully (if she has fur pulled outside of the nset box, put it inside; this might help her continue her nesting in the box). Just make sure the mom has fresh water and fresh food daily. This way she can provide good milk for her young. Baby rabbits can not have greens until they are 3 months old or older! Just think though, you are taking care of mommy and if it weren't for you the babies and mom would be in agony. So, you are sort of taking care of the babies too! (MORE)
well to take care of a newborn you need the right equipment, now because babys eat, cry, poo, wee, sleep you need the right equipment to take care of that challenge, hope that answers everything
