    Default Odd Squirrel Appearance..

    For some odd reason, one of my baby squirrels (around 8 weeks) is always soaked all over his stomach.. But I have no idea why.
    Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong? Is he just peeing on himself..?

    You have a bed wetter. Keeping the belly wiped down with a warm cloth will keep him from getting urine scald.

    How is his activity?
    I'd venture to say he's probably just...well....doing it himself.
    8 weeks eyes should be open....and thats about when I stopped "helping" them pooh and potty....also....when I noticed big wet puddles in their fleece....

    Check his belly....make sure he is relieving himself and not bloating.
    What is he eating??

    He eats Fox Valley!! Plus 2 HHBs a day. I keep him well fed! I have pics: http://thesquirrelboard.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=33595
    Both of my babies have been peeing on their own since eyes have been open, which was about a month ago. I clean him off every time it happens, I was just unsure if it was normal..
    Dale is starting to not want to eat FV, should I start him on regular squirrel diet?
    Both babies are EXTREMELY active. They will run and jump on anything (especially your head..). They love to play around together.
