    What is 100 miles per hour? I think there is a typo.

    Will the system allow you to use the 'attach' icon, the paper clip?

    I have sent Mel a message. I don't know when it will be seen. I have looked and I don't see any other admins online at the moment. I am working every angle I can think of.

    Yeah, with a new account your account will have a number of restrictions. I am trying to contact an admin to see if that process can be sped up.

    I don't know if you can PM yet either. That is accessed by clicking on one's user name at the top of the screen and then in the middle left there should be a button about sending a PM. I have PM'ed Mel1959 to see if we can get you some help.

    When you hit 'reply to thread' In the first row of that box their is a paper clip icon, the icon for putting in an attachment.

    Right. That's a big part of what this forum is about. Helping people who can't afford a vet visit and helping people who are struggling to help their squirrel.

    Have you called friends and family to see if they have any of the four antibiotics that I mentioned?

    Squirrels are very emotionally sensitive. They will be monitoring you very closely. So, it is very important that you remain as calm and relax as possible. If you are stressed out, the squirrel will become stressed out and anxious and that will only make matters worse.

    Talk to the squirrel in a calm and soothing fashion. Doing so will also help you monitor your own feeling and allow you to be aware if you are being calm.

    Also, stay active on the thread. User you can see that you are active and on the thread and will be more likely to wait for a response to an inquiry or question that they may have asked.

    Okay. Thanks. The arm wound definitely looks it could use some antibiotics.

    How did the squirrel come to you?

    Is it possible that it was bitten by a cat?

    SMZ/TMP, Doxycycline and Clindamycine are other drugs that have been used in squirrels, each has a preferred use based on where the infection is.

    If there is any cat action, this needs to be treated with antibiotics as their bites cause nasty wounds for squirrels.

    Excellent. That is critical. They are practically mind readers, in my experience.

    Keep it between layers of your clothing and in a relatively upright posture.

    What has the animal been fed? How is it being fed?

    Has it been peeing?

    Has it been pooping?

    Do you have a one cc syringe? Smaller is better. 3 cc syringes are problematic for squirrels that are that small.

    It also looks like it might be dehydrated.
