Help! White Teeth

I am posting this for a friend.

She had a litter of Quads born 1 week ago today, one baby has died the other three are doing fine so far. The worry is the mother her teeth are real white. They have offered her the animax (she wont touch it) a calcium stick (the kind with the seeds) a calcium block (100% pure calcium) tums (have to melt them water then syringe feed to her) a cuttle bone, apple juice (with added calcium and vitamin c) and a few other things, There are no GOOD vets in their area. Anyone have any suggestions?

The kits are being handfed with evaporated milk and water.

Handfeeding is good, it will take some stress off the mother. Try giving her Nutrical - you can always wipe it on your finger and drag it across the back of her teeth if she won't take it willingly. Also give some to the kits.

[color=dark red]Get someFelovite (cat section) and have her use that on the mother (can't hurt to give a bit to the babies either). As for handfeeding, use baby formula instead of milk replacers - the ready to feed stuff - it's much better than mixing evaporated milk and water with kayro (that just makes it sweet where the animal wants to eat it). If the evaporated milk is going to be used, it needs an egg white mixed in. Either way she needs vitamin supplements.[/color]

I spoke to my friend a little while ago on the phone, she had a fairly good report, said that she had given Heather two doses of the Felovite today and already she is eating better. She was only picking at her pellets and hay last night when I seen her.


Thank you Christi and Jorgha for your advice. We both really appreciate it. Heather thanks you too...
