    Can you weeigh him? We need a weight for dosing.

    Make sure he is kept warm and very quiet. In a carrier with a heating pad under half of ot the carrier if you can, with fleece inside... a blanket to cover the carrier. No loud noise or pets or kids around.

    Baby definitely needs something to control inflammation and address pain.
    If you can post a picture we can get a guesstimate on his weight, meds are dosed by a squirrel's body weight.
    Do you have any access to any pain med? If so tell us what and we can tell you if it can be used and how to dose.
    In the absence of, you can give liquid infant Ibuprofen for pain and inflammation easily obtained at any drug store,
    Walmart, etc.
