    I saw in another thread that you have Cipro 500 mg correct?
    That is a better choice for aspiration pnemonia.
    Is your little one clicking, and having difficulty breathing?
    What size syringe are you using.
    I just sent you a pm for Cipro 500mg dosing for a 65 gram squirrel.

    What strength is the amoxi.?
    I will dose this for you, when I know the strength
    Try to find Cipro (Human ab)or Baytril (Animal Ab), OR Augmentin (Human) or Clavamox (Animal)
    Those are your best options for aspiration pneumonia.

    You will need a weight on squirrels to medicate if necessary, all medications are dosed by body weight.
    With aspiration pneumonia you would hear a clicking sound in breathing with both inhale and exhale.
    What are you feeding them? With what?
    Can you post pictures so we may assess their probable age and overall condition.
