    I recently found a baby squirrel. It fell out of the nest and landed by my coonhound who decided to bat it around for a min before i could get to it. But i rescued the little bugger and now he has become a project of mine. he has come a long way since i found him, but i was wondering if anybody else could aid me in helping him fully recover? any help would be great

    my uncle found a few baby squirrels a year back he fed them warm milk and put them in a big wooden box with a blanket and moss in it when it gets bigger feed it nuts (ex peanuts, walnuts, etc.) then when he's old enough let him go just don't let your coonhound get to him again.

      We've raised several. A pet store has proper food for them, use an eyedropper. You'll be able to take him outside with you to climb trees and get exercise, he'll come back when you show him his food bottle. After a while he'll start acting different and one day when you go outside he won't come back but he'll hang around for awhile.

        Did this once when i was a kid. Used an eyedropper as Jim suggests. Peanut butter as he got a little bigger.

          I raise two about ten years ago. I feed then formula cat milk that you get at the pet store with an eye dropper for a few weeks then moved on the a small bottle. Once they started eating I feed them gerbil food, sunflower seeds and some nut. They did great just like pets till they hit about a year old and started to run around like crazy. They came to the back porch everyday to eat for almost 5 years then they disappeared.
