Take her to the vet. Also make up a recipe of Leadbeater's (I use Bourbon's recipe).I use RepCal with vit D3 Supplement, and also give mine boiled chicken or turkey.They can't just have fruits and vegetables, they need proteins too.Good Luck


: I purchased a baby Sugar Glider about a week ago.
: Up until this morning she seemed to be adjusting just
: fine, she was eating out of my hand and the last day or
: two she would even walk on to my hand by herself. This
: morning I woke up and went to check on her to discover
: that she was laying in an odd position. I picked her up
: and placed her on the floor and she just rolled around a
: bit. She then started to walk but didn't seem to have
: full use of her legs (I think just the hind ones). I've
: read about hind leg paralysys but don't know how to treat
: it. I've been having a hard time finding a vet in my area
: that knows anything about Sugar Gliders. I thought that
: I was feeding my sugar glider properly. Everyday I have
: been giving her fresh fruit; Apples, grapes, waterelon,
: ect.. I have also been giving her dry low fat Iams cat food
: mixed with a dry Sugar Glider food that the breeder gave me
: with the glider.

: Please help!
