It's been a while since I posted on here. Back in the summer I where given 2 baby squirrels that had fallen out of a tree.
Lucy, one of the babies now grown, is still in my care. I had noticed her teeth looked a little funny. so after watching the way she ate for a few weeks I felt she needed a real examination.
Our appt was this morning where it we found her teeth where misaligned and on the verge of causing problems. The vet trimmed her teeth under anesthesia. She seems to be feeling much better. He said I would have to come back every 4-6 weeks to keep her teeth in check. He said there was an option of surgery to remove her teeth all together but stressed that his was very risky.... and made it seem like he didn't feel comfortable doing it .
At this point I guess I'll keep an eye on her and bring her back for another trim in a month or so. Not sure of I could do it myself
He believed the problem with her teeth was from when she and her brother fell from a tree as babies.. her brother has been released months ago and I have not seen him lately... I still have Lucy because of her unique color
