    Medication dosing is done by weigh: How much does your baby weigh?

    The strength of the Amoxicillin is also critical, so provide that information for the Amoxicillin you have.

    What are the baby's symptoms?

    Exclamation Aspiration Pneumonia: clicking

    I have a 6 week old male squirrel, who got attacked by a dog a while back, he was saved and taken to me; i've noticed he's making a clicking sound along with a kinda snorting sound anytime he's awake, the clicking is everytime he's sleeping. he's not lethargic, still eating, but is cold. i've got him on a heating pad, i'm freaking out a bit. i have Baytril but i'm not certain the right dosage. please help!

    What is "a while back"?

    Were there any injuries identified?

    What formula is he getting? And any other diet.

    We need his weight and the strength of the Baytril to dose... but I am not sure antibiotics are indicated...

    - He's getting fox valley, there were no injuries. he's very energetic and sweet. he's on Harrys blocks for young squirrels as on right now. i'm not certain the strength of the Baytril.

    TO ADMINISTRATORS:

    Hi! I want to make sure I'm dosing correctly. I am reading so many dosages for Ciprofloxacin for aspiration pneumonia. I read that proper dosage for a squirrel is 22.7mg/mL per 100g of squirrel weight BID. I wanted to double check these numbers.

    Here are my numbers:
    I have Ciprofloxacin 500mg tabs
    Dilute with pedialyte or purified water?
    Squirrel weighs 5.7 oz currently.

    Thank you for your prompt assistance!!!

    It iwould be GREAT if you start your own thread, in the emergency section of the board. That section is heavily monitored by experienced folks who can help you through this.

    It will also be a dedicated place where you can post questions/updates, and all info will stay consolidated in one thread.

    iIt would be extremely helpful if you can give some background about the squirrel, and your current situation/why you believe AP. And a photo would be wonderfully helpful as well.

    (also, medication dosing, and details are not provided on the open board. But via pms only. Which is another reason I encourage you to start your own thread and get on the radar of the folks who are capable of dosing meds)

    Hope your baby is doing ok. Prayers are with you!
    🙂🙏🏻💕❤️🥰
