What are some of the symptoms of a sick squirrel?
You will frequently find squirrels if you are living in North America, it is winter time, and your house is located at the edge of a wooded area. Squirrels can be found as well in urban places since they will easily adapt to a place if it is a source of food and shelter
Squirrels with Diseases
Squirrels can be cute and furry to look at. However, they can bite humans, damage the furniture inside attics and they can leave droppings inside your property. Squirrels belong to the family of mammals the same as humans. Since humans are prone to different kinds of diseases, squirrels are also the same. They are more exposed to bacteria and viruses especially if they don't get enough food. If you are not used in handling squirrels, it might be difficult to identify if they have diseases. Not all squirrels are sick. However, you should still be careful when handling them. You can call a wildlife specialist if you suspect that a squirrel might be a carrier of a disease. A professional staff can treat the wild animal and release it afterward in the woods.
Dehydration is one of the factors that can tell if a squirrel is sick. If you are an expert in handling a squirrel, check for any signs of water in the mouth. You should also look at the nose and see if there is moisture. If you can find any signs of water, the squirrel might be suffering from dehydration.
It can be hard to tell if a squirrel is suffering from shock. You can try to transfer it to a dark and warm place. If the squirrel is simply stressed and doesn't require any medical attention, try to leave it alone. Call a professional who knows the right way to handle a suffering squirrel. You have to pay attention if the squirrel shows signs like the following:
-Wheezing, coughing, shivering and sneezing
- Incisor Overgrowth
These are some of the visible signs that a squirrel has a high chance of being a disease carrier:
-Blood on its Furs
You have to help the squirrel in whatever ways that you can. You also have to keep in mind that they are wild animals and should be treated with caution. They can have an irrational behaviour when in pain. I you don't know what to do contact a professional. Do not take down or relocate a squirrel without any knowledge of your state laws. A baby squirrel can fall down from a tree and might have been bitten by a dog. You need to treat any external injuries if you know how to. Do not cause any unnecessary stress to the squirrel. An ill squirrel might show other signs that it is infected with a particular disease. If you found a lethargic or a weak squirrel, or anything that is far from their normal behavior, contact a professional.
