"Boo-Too" The Squirrel
At the age of 9 weeks, "Boo-Too" was spotted in a friend's front yard walking in circles and occasionally falling over. When we rescued him, he was skin and bones and had a small hole in the top of his head, slightly to the left of center. We immediately took him to Beneva Animal Hospital where Dr. Janet Whitlock examined him and administered the necessary treatment for his head wound.
We brought Boo-Too home and began our job of getting some meat on his bones. He took to his Esbilac formula right away and attacked it like it was the first meal he had had in days. He ate like a pig and in no time began to tip the scales at his normal weight for his age.
At first we thought his vision might be impaired so we had his eyes checked by Dr. M.A. Salisbury at Animal Eye Care and his eyes checked out perfectly. Dr. Salisbury told us that Boo-Too was seeing correctly but that his brain's ability to interpret what he saw was impaired, probably due to the head injury he had sustained.
We also discovered that Boo-Too's top front teeth came out of the gum left of center and angled back toward his throat. This would mean perpetual dental care for the rest of his life.
Between his impaired brain interpretation and his teeth problems it became very apparent that we had gained a new member to our permanent family here at Boo-Boo Acres.
Boo-Too has a very loving personality. He loves to be handled and he loves to wrestle with your arm. Well actually, he will wrestle with anything that will wrestle back, including a foam gator.
Boo-Too's dental care is graciously provided by "Dr. Jack", who specializes in Exotic Services.
