I feel so horrible because not only did this happen to my baby, but I handled it all wrong. My Ellie Bear is 3 months old and about 3 inches got torn off from the tip of her tail, I'm referring to 3" of skin, not just the hair. But I didn't understand that that was what happened until hours later when I saw something similar on this site. The person used 2nd skin and put the tail back on. I had thought her tail had been bitten off. This happened on Thanksgiving and I could not call out of work because I work in health care and would have been written up. Also nowhere was open and I couldn't find 2nd skin at the local convenience stores. By the time I got home the tail piece had been sitting for 10 or 11 hours. I put it in the fridge in case it can be saved, but I think it's too late. I also saw that some of you know some vets in Maryland that will treat squirrels?
