Thanks, Joanne

Thank you so much for those links! My baby looks SO MUCH like that and on the last link there was a description of the way they act and that sure sounds like my sweetie Pippa!

Do you know if there is any special treatment I should be doing for her?

As with any Special Needs Squirrel or Person...... Love & Patients and a Good Doctor (vet) that is there for YOU in Time of NEED!! - is most Important.
I think your most pressing concern will be with feeding....as a lot of Downs Squirrels tend to not want to eat or fail to have the functions needed to eat properly, but with a lot of patients and time this can be done.

I put pictures in Non-life threatening help needed from my other computer since I can't get my mac to recognize my camera just yet. Can you look at the pictures and tell me if you think Pippa might have Down's?
