    Hold the baby to your ear and listen for a persistent clicking and let us know if the clicking is present.

    What antibiotics do you have, what strength are the antibiotics and how much does this baby weigh? All that info is necessary to assess if antibiotics are warranted and determine the proper dosages.

    Here is a link to a guide on baby squirrel care...
