The following story was shared with us by the Progressive Animal Welfare Society in Washington State.
On July 1, the Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) received a sub-adult American Robin. The bird was emaciated on intake and had signs of paresis in its pelvic limbs.
We provided the patient tube feedings of EmerAid, mixing 3 parts EmerAid IC Omnivore and 1 part EmerAid IC Carnivore. The bird showed signs of improvement on this formula and was processing the formula well.
Having a diet that easily fits through a small tube is very important when dealing with emaciated songbirds, and EmerAid is so easy to use when tube-feeding. It really is a life-saver for emaciated passerines in need of an elemental diet.
