    Exclamation Does anyone have a picture of a Downs Syndrome Baby?

    I'd like to compare a picture of a downs syndrome baby squirrel around 6 weeks if anyone has one they can upload?

    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?

    Thanks,
    Joanne

    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?

    Thanx,
    Joanne in Jacksonville FL
