    PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK THAT DOSE!


    Is this what your Clavamox looks like?
    If so did the vet already add suspension/reconstitute this?



    Oh no I'm wondering if it's to strong?
    Yes o believe it is mixed they said after ten days it'll turn to sugar water?
    Here is a pic of the meds and dose. I have been giving up to the .2 on that syringe per directions. I will not be giving her meds today until I here back from you guys. Also She kept everything in last night so no diarreha or poop and ate very well this morning.

    Let me direct some other members here.
    I still say this is a HUGE overdose for a squirrel that weighs 138 grams,
    unless I am missing something.
    This appears to be a strength of 62.5mg/ml

    One more thing.
    Can you take the clavmox OUT of the bottle and measure how many mls you have.
    I am wondering if the vet added more suspension so that you would give a larger
    amount, volume wise.
    Sometimes we do that when dosing on the board, if we feel the dose is
    too small/tiny to accurately measure.
    We make it weaker, so we add more volume when dosing.

    I've attached pictures of Dr. E's recommendations for Joey who weighed around 200gr at the time. I know there was some controversy about the way she says to mix it because it is in powdered form for me to mix and use as needed. She advised me to keep it in the freezer till needed.

    The amount is .04. I wonder if they made an error and meant to write .02.

    Ok I just measured it with a 1cc syringe and 5cc syringe
    There is about 14cc in the bottle still.

    IF this is a strength of 62.5mg/ml this little one should get 0.04416 twice daily,
    at 138 grams.
    I rounded it down to 0.04 twice daily.
    .2 seems SO high unless it's weaker.

    Edit: just saw your post. I am going to post
    the page from the WMB book.

    That's what I am thinking too.
    She is munching her block now still no poop or diarrhea which is normal she usually doesn't go till after her second feeding then goes a few times. Still waiting to give antibiotics I don't want to be giving her too much. Thank you guys for helping me I really appreciate everyone!

    Here is a pic of the side of bottle if that helps it does say 62.5 Should I reduce her dose it also smells like bubblegum I'm not sure if that helps with anything but I figured it couldn't hurt to share that info.

    Thank you.
    You have a strength of 62.5 mg/ml just like the book
    doses.
    Your baby should be getting 0.04 twice daily

    I just wanted to confirm Nancy's dosing. Using the weight (0.138kg), the dosage for Clavamox (20mg/kg) and the concentration of your suspension (62.5mg/kg),
    the dose is 0.04416ml so the rounded dose would be 0.04ml twice a day.

    Yes! Thank you guys! On the 1cc syringe I went up for dashes between 0 and .1. I believe that would be .04 correct
    I gave her pedialyte she took about 5-6cc she isn't a fan she shakes head and rubs her nose on her bedding. Also gave her back end a little bath warm water and blue dawn. She is dry but is now grooming herself. She wasn't a fan of that but she had poo on her hind legs and tail and a baby wipe wasn't doing the job.
    Thanks guys I'll keep you updated

    Awesome thank you! Anything else I should be doing about diarrhea she is still having some. I gave her pedialyte about 2 hours ago and i just fed her she ate 10cc. Just continue trying pedialyte between feedings or should I alternate feeding and pediatlye every 4-5 hours? Also, any tips on making her like pedialyte she really does not seem to enjoy it. Sorry for all the questions. I feel like I have so many!

    You could try the homemade pedialyte solution. 2 cups very warm water, 1.5 Tablespoons sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Maybe she will like it better.

    Ok will do, I've noticed maples fur seems to be falling out. A lot of it is wherever formula gets on her. I did give her bath last night. But she seems to get a little on her face and front arms everytime. I'm not sure if she pulling the hair off or it's falling off while she is cleaning herself.ive noticed her picking at herself here and there. Even holding her for a minute I notice pieces of hair. Could this be from the original high dose of antibiotics or the antibiotics in general? Here is a pic of her.

    This is what we call "milk burn".
    It's where the formula gets on their fur, and isn't cleaned
    off. MOST of us have had this happen before we knew better,
    so not to worry.
    The important thing is to clean off her face, paws and any other
    place the formula drops. I typically do this with a cotton ball
    and warm water. If you get her too wet, gently dry her off so
    she doesn't get a chill.You'll see the fur grow back
    in no time.
