    Exclamation Possible Pneumonia in 11-ish week old boy

    Hi. We have raised Tag since about 1 week. His nest had fallen and there was a single baby in it. I tried for 2 days to reunite him with his mother, with no luck. The other day he tried to drink water out of a dish and got it in his nose. He sneezed a few times. Since then I have been listening to him breath. Today I hear a possible clicking and he is very lethargic. It is illegal to have a squirrel where I live so I don't exactly know how the vet thing works. I am hoping those of you who either know how to treat my poop guy or what to do next can help!!
    Thank you in advance!

    If this is aspiration pneumonia. it can be treated with Baytril (animal antibiotic)
    or Cipro (Human), typically given for a UTI.
    OR
    Clavamox (animal) or Augmentin(human)
    Call family and friends for anyone of these abs.
    All you need is one pill and we can dose it for you, if you give us
    Tag's weight in grams, and the strength (mg.) of the pill.

    I wouldn't trust a vet, unless you know them personally
    and they treat exotics. If you don't personally know them,
    or friends/relatives don't personally know them, don't chance it.

    Tell me about the Cipro eye drops. Last week we successfully dosed Ciprodex (ear) because it was all that was available.

    Do you have your Private Messages turned off?

    And the eye drops were for Pink eye and another cipro drop for metal in eye. They are both 0.3%

    One of them does not expire until March 2020. I only see on it Ciprofloxacin. No other brand name. I have 2 droppers full of the one not expired.

    I think I will dose the Cephalexin 250mg.

    Can you go to your settings and turn on your Private Messages. We donít post dosing on the open board.

    An admin can activate your account. Sorry but I have to sign off for an hour and a half. I looked up the bottle label of the Cipro. There isnít enough info for me to dose the Cipro eye drop.
