    Default Need help with my adult female squirrel!

    Hello,
    I have a three year old female fox squirrel who is presenting symptoms of a respiratory infection. I currently have her on Cipro for the past day, but havenít seen any improvements. I am worried about her. She is not breathing normally and making a noise like she canít breathe out of her nose. I have a video I can send to someone who is willing to help! I donít know how to post it on here

    I've used a nebulizer on my squirrels before, but you'd need the machine and I used Albuterol mixed with saline

    Videos cannot be posted directly on TSB, but they can be posted to another site like YouTube, IMGUR, etc. and the link posted here.

    I have read through your threads. Have you checked this squirrel to see if her teeth are okay? First, make sure the top ones are visible and fully formed, then, a little more difficult, check the bottoms. They should tuck up behind the top teeth but should NOT touch the roof of the mouth. If they do, or worse, begin piercing that area, you will start seeing snotty nose, watery or milky eyes and other "head cold" symptoms. I actually bought a little dental mirror for a couple bucks on amazon to be able to look in that area with a little less drama, but with a properly aimed light, you CAN see up there.

    Sorry, it's been a crazy weekend guys!
    My baby girl Tiponya seems to be doing better. Her energy has improved and she is no longer making a noise when she breathes. I think I just needed to wait a few days for the Cipro to kick in. I have also checked her teeth and they are looking good. Her top teeth are present, and the bottom ones sit just under her top teeth not touching the top. I did not see any milkyness in her eyes like she would be in pain.
    I'm so glad to see improvement in her, and I appreciate the help. I will post another update once we finish her Cipro cycle. <3 Thanks again. You guys are always so quick to help!
