    Default Cat caught

    Hi i have one that was cat caught she is a juvenile/ adult gray. We havent taken her to a rehab center because the ones around we have worked at all euthanize adults. She has a damaged eye that probably needs to be removed so im looking for somone to pm me the vet that will treat them in NC or in sc. Shes on antibiotics and pain meds we have spent a lot of years rehabbing but are not currently liscensed so just need to find her a safe vet that will treat her or even a rehabber that can take her to a good vet. Thanks

    Dr. Dan Johnson is the vet. They are in Raleigh.

    Cat caught usually means Pasturella infection, which is more of an acute issue than the eye at this point. Cats carry this in their saliva - it even affects humans ("Cat Scratch Fever" isn't just a song. If it is going to be days before you can get the squirrel in to the vet, you will need to deal with this. Call your friends, look through your own medicine cabinet and see if you can find any unused human antibiotics. Amoxicillin clavulanate (not plain amoxicillin) or Cipro would be good. We can help you to dose the squirrel wit this. We will need the size of the pill in milligrams and the weight of the squirrel; YOU will need a 1cc or smaller syringe with clear markings to dilute and dose it.
