What supplaments do you have your skunk on?  Have you put a diaper on him? 
Do you use the incontinent (sp) pads for humans for him to lay on?  that way 
the pee goes into the pads.  Can he  pull himself along?  Can't you put him 
in  a pen and lethim drag himself?  Have you looked over these pages?
