    Pet squirrel had frost bit that tail fell off and still not healed
    deelux posted:
    We have a "pet " black squirrel that we released at our home that was rehabbed at my sister's licensed wildlife center. she is about 5 years old. her tail had gotten broken a year ago and during the hard winter it got frost bit and 5 months later it looks like she is still chewing on it and it bleeds occasionally. Now that the fly season so here I am worried it will get infected. She is touch friendly and I was wondering if and what I should put on it or if there is an oral med I could give on a peanut?
