 Squirrel Tumor

I have a squirrel that lives in my front yard and i’ve been keeping close track of her. But lately i’ve been worried. She’s had torn fur and small bumps on her body. After her little baby grew up, its become worse. Now there appears to be tumors all over her body. I dont think she’ll make it much longer, but is there anything i can do and can anyone diagnose her disease?

 Squirrel Tumor

I have seen tumor looking things on several squirrels in my neighborhood a while ago. I asked my local rehabilitator about them and she said that they were parasites that were embedded in the skin. It is possible that that is what it is.
