Since the vomit is clear and slimy, it suggests that your squirrel may have ingested something that is irritating its stomach or it could be a sign of an empty stomach with mucus being the only content.

Firstly, ensure that your squirrel has access to fresh water, as vomiting can lead to dehydration. Offer small amounts of water frequently rather than a large quantity all at once to prevent further vomiting.

In terms of additional symptomatic situations that would require immediate attention, be alert for signs of severe lethargy, difficulty breathing, or a distended abdomen. These could be indicative of an emergency that requires prompt veterinary care. Additionally, if the vomiting persists for more than a day or if your squirrel shows signs of pain or distress, it is crucial to seek veterinary assistance.
