can eating an infected squirrel cause unusual dacay in teeth? i recall seeing this on the history channel afew summers ago. maybe discover health channel.
To the best of my knowledge, it cannot. That being said, if a mother had gotten an infection during her pregnancy, the tooth development of the fetus could be affected. That would not be specific to a squirrel infection.
