    Default What's wrong with Missy

    I'm worried about my 1 yr old, Missy. She suddenly came back (she visited for a few minutes everyday) to stay in my screen room last weekend. I noticed her belly getting rounded (but no weight gain in the rest of her body) about 2 months ago. Initial thought was she was pregnant but I never saw her teats developing and as the time passed for normal gestation I realized there must be something wrong. Any ideas? She's still eating but now does so with what I can only describe as if she was VERY hungry, but is still SUPER picky. Worms maybe? Is there something I can give her?

    Default What's wrong with Missy

    My squirrel needs help. I've tried posting and emails but something must be wrong. No responses. Missy started getting a large belly around 2 months ago and now has swelling in her face. She is still eating, drinking and peeing. I never see her poo because she stays outside 90% of the time.

    When you say she is outdoors 90% of the time, is that running free or in a cage?

    If she is not running wild, please share with us what is included in her diet. How old is she?

    Spanky I just moved the post #1 above to this thread.
    It was attached to Gayle's thread, "Yard Squirrels".

    Sorry lorawil1, I see we totally missed your original post. Very sorry.
    Let’s see if we can figure this out. Was Missy a rehab? When was she released? Anything that you can think of will help. Her belly does look a little swollen in the pic. The cheeks look puffy too.

    Can you handle her?
