Hey debbie we have talked before on the internet. You might not remember this is Muntito. you sent all this to me I tried everything and like I said he still came out all the time until last week. Pads don't work he shreds them. Diapers don't work he shreds them. Giving him gatorade to maybe help. xrays also showed possible weakening of the stomach. If you want you can call me at 904-657-1285 I am willing to go for anything I have four skunks 3 I went to the flea markets to rescue from that horror. 2 are 6 yr and 2 are 7yr been a battle and lots of money to keep them healthy.

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?
