    Baytril is what is used for squirrels, but I have found that amoxicillin will help, or one valley of Cipro.

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.

    Ssrichardson28, you need to try to get an antibiotic from a friend or family that might have a leftover antibiotic. All you need is one pill. Let us know what you get and we can dose it. Ciprofloxacin would be best but we can use others. Baytril is a veterinary antibiotic that is similar to Ciprofloxacin. We can dose either human or veterinary antibiotics.

    I have an about 8week old grey squirrel. We've had him for 3 weeks. He's been doing well, eating, gaining weight. Today after feeding he was breathing heavy and if I held him up to my ear i hear a click.... not like the video. He just wanted to lay down and sleep after that. His heart seems to beating fast. His snuggle snack is moving constantly. I haven't offered food since he's been the last 2 hours. Should I treat for pneumonia? Or wait and see. I only have a 500 mg amoxicillin caplet or And cephalexin. He weighs 160g

    Question Re: Pneumonia video

    Unable to view video! I have a 7 week old, Eastern Grey, Male, Tre Mac, who I have had since he was approximately 10 days old. He weighs roughly 180g and has been doing very well eating and growing but he started making a clicking noise after he fell asleep tonight once he got done eating - not sure if it is aspiration pneumonia but I dont want to take the risk so looking to find which antibotics I may start him on ASAP? As well as the strength and amount and how often? FYI: He has only ever slept on fleece blankets so not worried about bedding being the culprit for clicking noise. I have some left over Amoxicllin Oral Suspension USP 400mg/5ml but not sure if animals/squirrels can take it safely PLEASE HELP! Thank You In Advance 🥰

    Unhappy Re: Pneumonia video

    My son was with his dad for the weekend and brought home a northern flying squirrel. It’s about 5 1/2 to 6 weeks weighs 40 g and I’ve realized he starting to make the dreaded clicking noise. I have found some amoxicillin 500 I need help with dosing to save this little guy, his name is trooper because that’s what he is a little trooper!! Please help us through this!!

    I know this is an “old thread” but it is a STICKY, and the original post and accompanying video contain critical, life saving, IMPORTANT information for ALL TSB…
    YET…the video linked in the first post is no longer able to be viewed via photo bucket.

    Im hoping someone can either track down the original video with a usable/viewable link, OR maybe we can update this sticky with a new one, that is just as helpful/valid???



    {{I know in the year since I’ve been on TSB NONE of the photobucket video links have ever worked. Which tbh has been absolutely devastating, when reading through so many amazing legacy threads with videos that I’ve never been able to watch 😢😢🥺🥺 (Jeffery, Rama Rotas earlier posts, krista, and many others) }}
