“Topsy-Turvy Thursday” – My Pet Squirrel

Fox Squirrel

Since this is “Topsy-Turvy Thursday” I can post about anything that I feel like posting about and the thing that is weighing heavily on my mind today is the fact that I had to have my squirrel’s left back leg amputated.  😦  He broke it somehow and the surgery we tried to repair it failed.  The only other alternative was to have it amputated because it was very infected and the bone was beginning to disintegrate. 

Well, Romeo made it through the surgery but now he barely eats and won’t move.  I think he’s depressed and I don’t know what to do to help him.  It breaks my heart.  I am taking him back to the vet tomorrow morning for a check up so hopefully she’ll have some ideas for me. 

Until then, though, if any of you have had a pet that had to have a limb amputated, please give me some advice about how to help my poor Romeo through this.
