    I should think Baytril as soon as he is hydrated. Do you have Baytril?

    Absolutely as long as you warm him up first. He needs to be warm before he drinks anything.

    Ok, I am not sure if I have a boy or girl but is eyes closed, not visible signs of puncture wounds. He took the water and peed good. I am new to flyers, I did not know we had them here. I will take pictures and post tomorrow. I know they have different eating habits from grey squirrels but do they still take the goat fomula, and with fox valley do I need to order tonight?

    Same formula I believe. I just sent Mrs. Skul a PM asking her to come take a look at the thread. If you can take a phone pic and text it to me I can post it now. 203 214-7427

    Heat first - heating pad half under a plastic container (cardboard drys them out), hydrate every 2 hours or more until hydrated, then start the GM formula but leave out the whipping cream for the first day. Going to try and get Uni to come in since she is in the middle of Alabama and may be the closest one that might have meds.

    Now there are 2 while I was gone my husband found one hiding in the monkey grass. Should I keep looking to make sure there is not a 3rd one? I got to hydrate again. No signs of injury 2 healthy babies. I do have cipro but no scales but can weigh them in the morning at work @6. I will take them with me, thank god for a good boss

    Yeah, keep an eye out for more. Glad the little one is taking the hydration. Remember to keep them warm so their little bodies can process the fluids.

    They are nice and toasty, they both took sugar water good. Since their eyes are open is there anything I need to get for them tomorrow? I got goat milk formula. gotta find how to mix I don't remember. I think they are little boys. I will take pictures tonight and post them tomorrow. I am going to go check the monkey grass again to make sure I didn't miss one they are so tiny.

    If the goat's milk calls for mixing it with water do that. Right now that should be all you need. Reminder though that fleece or flannel is recommended over towels that can catch little nails. Proper feeding technique too, head up, belly and tail down and nipple coming up from underneath the squirrel to prevent aspirating them. Go slow. A 1cc syringe is best when they are this size. GM formula should be warm too, never cold. Stick syringes in a baggie and submerge in a cup of hot water. If you don't use the baggie then sometimes the hot water will switch places with the formula, diluting it.

    Yay for your boss!
