    Default 7 week old fox squirrel with fleas

    Just got a baby in and she is a mess! Massive amount of fleas, anemic, dehydrated emaciated....yikes. I got her warmed up, sub q fluids, she has taken in some formula after I gave her a little karo syrup on her gums....she was hungry! I gave her a little capstar and bathed and dried her to get rid of the fleas, she is perking up some now. I noticed her ears are crispy...think that's mange? I don't want to give her ivermectin on top of it all...I think I have some revolution...anyone know the dose? She is 126 grams. Suggestions dor the anemia? I can't seem to find much info on it. Thanks for a reply.

    Just a single drop from a 1cc syringe of revolution. Good luck with that little one...

    Get him on formula and a good diet. I believe that should take care of it since the fleas are gone now.
