    Default 62 G squirrel with probable pneumonia

    I'm a rehabber and someone just gave me an approx 6 week old squirrel who they tried to feed for a couple of days before calling me. Squirrel is lethargic and with clicking sound when breathing. Have clavamox pills, baytril by injection or penicillin by injection. Which is best and at what dose?

    Can you post a picture of both sides of package?
    Would there be a number on pill?

    I will write this up for you and send in a pm.
    This will take me a while because I also want to send
    a picture of a syringe with an arrow showing you where the exact amount will be.

    Edit: Dosing sent.

  9. 5 TSBers pass along the fuzzy thanks to Nancy in New York:
