Subject: squirrel acts sick

My flyer who is about 3mo. acts sick. He is active as normal but squeaks when you pick him uo (like he is in pain) He also has dark loose stools. This has been going on for three days. What should I do? He is eating, drinking and playing. Thanks, this is my first post but have spent hours reading the posts.

(If your flyer is active, eating and drinking, then it's not likely ...) that there is any problem. Stool should be dark. Loose is only a problem if you really mean 'runny'. Soft stool is okay, especially if he's recently moved from formula to solid foods, or if you've introduced some new food item.

It's helpful to know more about a flyer, when trying to offer ideas or suggestions. Where did you get the flyer, what are you feeding, are you providing a source of Vitamin D3 (most flyer fanciers find using a liquid daily vitamin in their flyer's water supply is the easiest way to provide D3. Recently, it's been found that flyers can also get D3 by eating mushrooms, particularly those actually grown in some sunlight conditions.

I highly recommend you visit, and register as a user, at:
