    Default Swollen lumpy paw pads

    Our regular very friendly Squirrel last week suddenly developed a limp as his / her front right paw pads look slightly swollen and lumpy a week has gone by and the Squirrel visited yesterday and its still the same it has plenty of energy and looks very healthy, so any advice welcome thanks in advance.

    It could be broken or infected. For a wild, homeopathic remedies are a good option; especially for breeding females.


    Homeopathic remedies:

    The first remedy has antibacterial properties, and the second is known to reduce tissue swelling from tissue damage.

    Both these were recommended by a rehabber for our female yard squirrel, who showed up one day with an injured swollen front arm.


    "Gun Powder" (8x) https://www.amazon.com/Boiron-Gun-Po...s%2C120&sr=8-2

    "Arnica Montana" (30 x) https://www.amazon.com/Hylands-Homeo.../dp/B006JG6TPO


    Place one tablet separately into (1/4 Tsp.) of water to dissolve; then add two drops of the dilution to a walnut leave it a few minutes

    for the water to evaporate and then offer it to the squirrel.

    Sadly, no. The remedy is reduced down to the size of nano sized particles in water.

    Hi. Just a suggestion to move this thread (or re-post it) in the non-life threatening section, as I think you will get more responses (than in the current, "other" category). Good luck

    Moving thread to the non-life threatening section.


    One thing to consider, do you or your neighbors use an outdoor grill? A squirrel could hop on a grill cover not knowing it is is in use or has been recently in use and could get burned paw pads. Most mild injuries to paws heal up on there own within a week or so.
    See my wild squirrel adventures in the thread "Squirtle's yard!":
