    Default 12 week old acting strange

    We are noticing that our little guy is acting strange. Drowsy, whiffing sound and just not right. We had given him cranberries. Could it be that? He is acting kind of "high"..... What can I do. I don't want to lose him.

    What are you currently feeding him?
    Can you please list everything he eats in one day?
    Can you post a photo?
    Sometimes seeing them helps us when trying to
    "diagnose" a problem.

    YES if he ate the peel.
    Hydrate him as much as he will allow, and try to do it ~ every half hour
    as much as he will take.
    Then if he'll let you, stimulate him to get him to pee.

    Please keep pushing the fluids..... as much as you can get your squirrel to take, don't worry about food atm, that will come later..... we need to flush this poison out of the body.

    Should I try to keep him awake and active or let him rest in between?

    I would keep him warm on a heating pad set to low and let him rest in between hydration times. (place fleece over the heating pad)

    If you can sub-q the fluids that would be great, but keep the oral hydration going as well.

    Not the same purpose. You want to keep pushing fluids to flush out
    the digestive system and get him to pass out the toxins.
