A new member here has a 15 month old girl squirrel who he recently posted about: https://thesquirrelboard.com/forums/...treatment-help

Her UTI symptoms have cleared with meds, but her privates remain very swollen. I have only had boy squirrels. Those of you who have or have had females, can you weigh in as to how long the genital area is normally swollen during estrus? I strongly believe this is what is going on with this girl, her age is right, and the timing is CERTAINLY right - my backyard is decidedly X-rated right now. I know that they are only able to get pregnant for a VERY short time during the estrus cycle, but I do not know how long the actual cycle lasts and for how long the physical signs are present.

Thanks!
