Red Squirrel

As we enter full speed into baby season our doctors at the National Wildlife Centre continue to help all creatures big and small!

This infant red squirrel was assessed by our doctors for a head injury after falling out of his nest and onto his head. Thankfully he did not sustain any significant head trauma. However, he had a large hematoma (pocket of blood) on his head. 

With some pain medications, time and tender loving care, we expect a full recovery for this little one! 

Thank you to Shades of Hope for caring for this squirrel.
