    Default Flying squirrel with possible aspiration pneumonia

    Iíve got a baby flyer, just opened itís eyes about 3 days ago, so I am assuming itís going to be about 4.5-5 weeks old. I noticed durning the last feeding she acted like she had gotten too much formula. I heard a slight clicking so I used a small dropper to suction her nose and some milk did come out. She seems to be sort of weak now. Iíve read multiple posted and read that cipro can save the baby. Iíve got Cipro but Iím not too sure on the dosage I should use, a lot of the posts are about grey squirrels rather than flyers and there is quite a bit of size difference in the two. Thanks in advance!

    In order to dose your baby we need her weight in grams and the size of the Cipro pill in milligrams. YOU will need a 1cc or .5cc syringe in order to dose it.
