He is one of 8 kits (4 per litter)that I have had since June 23rd. The others were moved to 2nd stage which is outside cage, yesterday & are with another group of 2 week older skunks on dirt floors. The babies sleep in large dog kennels at night so the only metal in on the front door. Yes they climb on it but have not found any injuries, cuts, sores or anything. Have looked under magnify glasses and had 2 other senior rehabbers look at him also. If he is contagious how long until it could show up in the others?
He does drag himself around and has a great appetite and is drinking water. He does have diarrhea tonight but I was thinking it was because of the antibiotic. He is very alert and I have listened to his chest and it is clear, no ticking sound.
None of the others show signs tonight of swelling and are moving fine.
Any other suggestions?
