    I was gonna comment on one of the pictures you posted of Foxy. The picture with the clearly defined red circle on her leg looks like ringworm to me. Ringworm can be treated with otc medications used for yeast infections or athletes foot. It can be transmitted to other squirrels so if youíve handed Foxy off to another rehabber, I think it would be prudent to point this out and have her treat Foxy.

    Yeah she's a good one, I checked with a somewhat local exotic vet we have in the area to get their opinion as well. When I dropped her off I showed her the spot to make sure she saw it and knew it was possibly ringworm. They even suggested I come out an volunteer there to help out and I can keep up on her progress that way.

    I'm going to call her in a couple days for a progress update.

    I showed her the spot as soon as she started to do the intake exam to make sure it didn't get overlooked. I know some people confuse ringworm and mange. The woman ensured me she was going to be on an anti fungal. And gentle antibiotics rather than the clavamox I had.
