Default Re: I Think My Squirrel Friend Has Mange!

Hello sneha.dhardwadkar and welcome on board! We have a couple of Indian friends on this forum that have raised squirrels, so I'm familiar with the sweet little squirrels you have in your country.

I'm sorry to hear about your problem "child". Do you know how the injury to the tail happened? Is it possible that the squirrel was bitten by a dog or other animal? Maybe injured the eye as well and it all got infected?

I use topical antibiotic creme for eye injuries and in case of a dog or cat bite, I also use oral antibiotics such as Amoxicillin to fight off possible bacteria that entered the bloodstream from the dog's or cat's teeth.

The injured squirrel also sounds like he's the runt and weak to begin with. How old is he? At what age do you usually release them?

thanks for accepting!!
well this eye problem has just occured since last few days and this squirrel has been with me since last 5 or 6 months approx and i have no idea how this one got injured as when i brought him home he was ok only with its tail already broken...so i am quite unaware about its history.....till now he never had any kind of infection...as directed by the vet i am putting dexamethasone and gentamicin drops in the eyes and it seems my lil one has internal infection as well so giving him amoxicillin....occasionally i give him vitamin drops and liver tonic drops.....he has been recovering and his infection has reduced....inially i was very scared for him as i ove him very much but m very happy he is gonna be alryt now....
