    Exclamation Red ant attacked........!!!

    i found a fully grown one about 10.am in the morning laying on the ground covered with red ants (folic acid) on eyes, ears, mouth, paws. barley moving paws. i think little fellow on his first voyage and ended at a red ants colony.

    i keep him warm and apply soframycin skin cream which contains Framycelin, Mythyl, Propyl on eye lid, ears, paws.

    After 10 hours he starts move so i wish to know the next step. he looks not dehydrated. but make no sound. moves a bit. looks still sleepy. shall i feed him with dry food

    By red ants, do you mean Fire Ants? You can give him Benadryl to help with allergic response. Do you have a weight on him? I can send dosing directions if you have weight. I would try to get him hydrated ASAP.

    1.67oz is equal to 47g. What kind of squirrel is this? A 47g should not be running anywhere, it's eyes should be closed.

    Keep trying to get him hydrated/ If you have Children's Benadryl (it should say 22.5mg/5ml strength on the bottle) you can give 0.04cc (0.04ml) up to 3x per day (morning/afternoon/evening). That should help with pain, irritation and reduce inflammation somewhat.

    dear friends...! good news for today..!
    Last evening with some warm water i rubbed her eye lids gently, slowly then opened. he is very active and so tired by trying to escape.
    this morning under the warm sun, i set him free.
