    Default Baby grey with clicking plz help!!!

    I have a three week old baby grey who had the clicking. Idk how the ppl before me treated him but I know they do not know how to care for them. He isn't as big as his brother and acts like he's stil dehydrated. He isn't eating as good anymore and can't keep his self as warm. This isn't my first baby squirrel I just couldn't get into my account so I made a new one for this baby. I don't have any surfurm or how ever you spell it but he weights 1.6oz plz help this baby I need other medicine I can give him. I'm in Florida and we're in the middle of a hurricane so all the stores are closed. He's a fighter and I want to do everything I can to help him! His name is rocket like the raccoon from gardiuan of the galaxy

    Do you have any antibiotics? He sounds bad but if you can start Baytril (animal drug) Cipro (human drug) tonight it could help him. Do you have Clavamox (animal) or Augmentin (human drug) even Amoxicillin will help until you can get other drugs mentioned. We will dose it for your baby. He is about 42plus grams. We can dose if you have drugs. Let me know.

    Gonna dose it for you but it is not recommended for ASPIRATION PNUEMONIA. Since it is an antibiotic let's go on the assumption that something is better than nothing.

    How is it presented? Is the doxycycline a powder, capsule, tablet? Need that info to tell you how to prepare it?

    Empty the capsule on a small sheet of paper and crush it into a powder if it is not already. Put the powder in a shot glass or some thing small. Add 20 ml of water to the powder. If you do not have a syringe add 1 Tbsp + 1 teaspoon of water to powder. Shake very well. Give 2 drops tonight and 1 drop two times a day after tonight. Keep looking for the other drugs. My favorite is Baytril or Cipro

    Hi IR,

    I responded in another thread. All she has is doxycycline and I did dose it hoping against hope that something was better than nothing. We looked doxycycline up in Plumbs and it did say that it was effective again mycoplasmal pneumonia. Hopefully it will help.
