Return to Damage to Plants

Two squirrels have died in our backyard in the past week. They are hairless on one side. We have noticed several squirrels at the feeders that have hair missing in various spots. Is the any medicine we can put in the feed to cure this?

Did the skin appear gray, wrinkled, and covered with scabs? Did you happen to take pictures, or could you take pictures of the squirrels currently using the feeders?
