    Default My 7 year, male gray squirrel is lethargic, please help

    Hello, when I checked my squirrel this morning I immediately felt my squirrel was kind of slow, sometimes lethargic. He ate a bit this morning. Now, she is not eating even the avocado, his favorite.
    he makes some noises like sneezing.
    I have a new bottle of clavamox.
    Please help

    I'm not an expert, but in case that medication is necessary you will need to weigh your baby for dosing.
    I'm sure someone will be here to help soon.
    Make sure that you keep him hydrated.
    What is his name?

    Hi, please post up his weight. Also, what is his regular diet like? Is he walking around at all?

    Thank you for responding so quickly.
    I don't have anything to get his weight,
    He eat, sweet potato, zucchini, green beans, mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, pumpkin seeds and Henry Blocks
    He is not walking around, he has been sitting on my lap, he has a huge cage.
    Noticed he is slow, I just put him in the cage and I got some water in my hand and he drank it. I checked and the water bottle works, but I will change it anyway.

    Thank you so much

    We really need a weight to give you accurate dosing if he needs any meds. People use kitchen scales, weigh an empty Tupperware container, then put him in it and weigh again. Subtract the empty container weight from the squirrel in container weight to get his body weight. Could you post up a photo from him from today?

    1)Does he eat his Henry blocks regularly/daily?

    2)Have you sen him pee and poop today? If so, does the pee and poop look/smell normal?

    3) Could he have eaten something that he was not supposed to (candy, cleaners, ant poison etc etc)?

    4) Have you seen him walk at all today?

    A lot of questions but it will help us to determine what is going on with him.
