My 12 week old squirrel has what looks like mange on his

Customer Question

My 12 week old squirrel has what looks like mange on his back. It just startred about a week ago. We rescued him when he fell out of the nest about 4 weeks ago. So far he has done well on pet formula and now he is eating pieces of walnuts and pecans and drinking less formula and more water. WE would like to let him go free but don't know if he can survive our hash winter. Any advice is appreciasted.
