Southern Flying Sq.: my old buddy needs some help

howdy. (first ever posting on any chat site ) after searching through too many to count useless google references, i finally found this site which i hope may prove to be helpful. i have a close friend named 'bug' who a southern flying squirrel, and who will be eleven years old in a few days. he seems to be getting weak. yesterday, his eye was swollen. looks better today. i'm all up on the calcium deficiency. this is something different. wondering: anybody out there have any ideas? really, he has more than doubled the life expectancy of a 's.f.s.' in the wild, but i'd still like to help him if his malady is not a result of age. any ideas? thanks, dl

Have you tried talking to a vet experienced in exotics?

Good luck with him! It sounds like you've been taking great care of him.

i'd say call up your vet and have him take a look at the squirrel. it very well might just be because of old age though =[.
