    Default Is there a basic book or PDF handout on Squirrel Rehab I can give to my vet?

    I recently found a new vet that is willing to work with wildlife. He is pretty clueless when it comes to wildlife but is willing to learn. I told him I would send him some reading material on wildlife medicine. I mainly rehab squirrels so I wanted to give him some good info specifically on them. Can anyone suggest A simple basic book or any good reading material for vets?

    I would say that by far the book we use the most is:
    Wild Mammal Babies: The first 48 hrs and beyond 3rd edition It includes many different wildlife, not just squirrels.

    It can be purchased at this website. https://www.squirrelsandmore.com/pro...nd-2nd-edition

    If he purchases it, make sure he calls the order in. The website is not designed to calculate Media rate (book) postage. IF you order online the postage is VERY high. IF you call the order in they will use Media rate which is much cheaper.

    Edit... Step posted it first.

    I do have this book but it is pretty pricey to buy another one for him lol. I was hoping there was a more simple book on just squirrels.

    Thank you! I think I'll copy this info as well as some other resources and just put something together myself to send to him.
