    Look around for any leftover antibiotics you, ask family and friends what they may have. You will need only 1 tablet / capsule.

    Cipro will work best for squirrel pneumonia and its commonly prescribed, especially for women. Once you know what antibiotics you have, create a new post in Help Needed, explain your baby is clicking and list the antibiotics you were able to locate. Someone will help with more instructions from there....

    Call everyone you know and see if they have any antibiotics left over from their last illness. Cipro is normally given for either urinary tract infections and often for upper respiratory issues. All you will need is ONE pill. See what you can get.

    One can not just give Baytril to a squirrel without knowing the strength of the medication.
    Depending on the strength it may need to be broken down. All medications for squirrels are
    dosed according to their body weight.


    If you suspect Pneumonia please post in the emergency forum giving the weight of the squirrel
    in question and the strength of the Baytril. Dosing will be sent to you in a private message, we
    do not post dosages on the open board.

    Default PLEASE HELP ANYONE IS SOUTH FL

    I have a 5 week old that I'm pretty sure has pneumonia. He won't eat and is so lathargic and limp. I thought he wasn't eating because I was in the transition process of milks and figured he just didn't like it but now I know something is wrong. Tomorrow is Labor Day and I'm sure the vets are all closed so if anyone in the south Florida area has the antibiotics on hand I would really appreciate that. I will come to you and pay the appropriate price.
    Does anyone know how much time I have I don't hear weezing or any clicking noises
    PLEASE HELP!!!

    I have re-posted your plea here: http://thesquirrelboard.com/forums/s...91#post1177591

    It is best not to attach to an old post, and also to put as much info as you can in the title - this will draw people close to you and who may be able to help.

    Has this baby aspirated formula? Bubbles of milk come out the nose - like you when you swallow something "the wrong way"??

    What you are looking for is Cipro - it is a VERY commonly prescribed antibiotic and is almost all doctors prescribe for urinary tract infections. I would immediately start contacting all of your female friends and see if you can get your hands on just ONE cipro pill. Hopefully someone near you will see this and have one.

    We will need to know the size of the pill in milligrams (cipro is sold as either 250 or 500mg and we need to know which) and the weight of your baby in grams. Inexpensive scales that weigh in grams can be found easily at Walmart in the appliance department - they are used by dieters to weigh food - less than $20. If we have the size of the pill and the weight of the squirrel we can give you very specific dosing info.

    Where is it that you can find Baytril?!

So if you're trying to determine whether your baby has pneumonia, watch this video. It is crucial to put a squirrel in this condition on antibiotics immediately.





    To reassure anyone that has a pneumonia baby, there IS hope! A course of Baytril fixed Fudge right up and he went on to become...

    ...a champion eater.

    Do you need Baytril?
    If this is for aspiration pneumonia, you will need it ASAP.
    We have some members in Maryland that may be
    able to help you if you are close.
