the bottle baby
We rescue babies that have been separated or abandoned by their Mother's.
In our bottle baby nursery they are given lots of love and affection to make them feel safe and to begin their Imprinting. We form a unique bond with them that will last a lifetime.
Each bottle baby goes through many phases of their Imprinting. They are given daily massages to teach them not to kick or jump when they are touched. They love their baby massages and all the love and affection they receive daily
The bottle babies are given fresh fruits, vegetables, dry foods, grass and hay from all the necessary food groups for each individual species to ensure healthy eating habits throughout their lifetime, and provide all the nutrients they will need to grow and thrive.
Once their immune systems are strong the bottle babies are taken outside to their fenced in play yard where they can run, jump, play and exercise on a daily bases.
The bottle babies are also taken to Town to interact with the Tourist and local residents. They love the car ride to town.
Some of our bottle babies can be very dehydrated or stressed when they are rescued. They must receive very special care. We immediately get I.V. fluids started in them, special medications and treatments, and placed into a crib under a heat lamp to stabilize their body tempatures, with 24 hour around the clock care.
We are very blessed to have such a great success rate with our bottle babies.
Some bottle babies permanantly remain here at the Ranch, and others are adopted by a new family.
