Do you have a bald squirrel?



We have been feeding our local squirrels for years now and have never seen a bald squirrel until this past month. "Harry" showed up about 2 weeks ago and the last time we went to
the Backyard Bird shop we asked what we could do for the hairless guy. So, they gave us this recipe:


For Squirrels with Mange
  • slice of whole wheat bread
  • butter with flax seed oil put on top
  • spread peanut butter over that
  • sprinkle with brewers yeast
  • roll up into a log and cut into 3-4 pieces
  • kind of squish each piece into a ball
  • serve to your mangy squirrel

"Harry" seems to like this treat and he already looks healthier as his tail no longer is droopy but is curled high ! Thanks Backyard Bird shop!


PS it's been a few days now and he looks much
better...maybe we see hair growing? YAY!
