    Default My 3 week old squirrel is coughing?

    Recently my 3 week old squirrel has started what seems like coughing. I havent seen him aspirate and he doesnt click like in pneumonia videos. Plus he still loves to eat. He does it every couple minutes. Is this still pneumonia or something else that is a cause for concern?

    This is indeed a concern. They only cough if something hurts or they have an infection. And both can get worse very quickly.
    I suggest you post a list of what antibiotics you have on hand and their strength per tablet, and also the weight of the squirrel in grams.
    Then someone can see what options we have to help the baby.

    He is 38 grams. I don't have any antibiotics on hand that I am aware of.
