I talked to the vet last night and they said that they wouldn't see him unless it was a trauma. They said that since he is eating and playing it is hardly a trauma. So this morning I called the normal vet and he said to get back on the reg diet obviously and that he wasn't worried since Squirt was eating and playing but if he quit eating to bring him in immediately. He said that is a huge sign they are sick if they don't eat. Well when I got home today I checked on him and he let me hold him and I fed him some mealworms which he ate like a pig and I let him pee on me and it looked normal and didn't stink like last time. So they will get their normal food tonight with the leadbeaters and some non acidic fruits and see if that helps what do you think?

Think you need to at the very least take a urine sample in to him for a urinalysis. Yes getting him back on his normal diet is what you need to do. I agree. but definitly have the urinalysis done, It is better to be safe than sorry. Some gliders eat with no prob, his problems was not in his fecies it was his urinary tract.

Well they are going in the day after Christmas that is as soon as I can get them in without it being an emergency. I went ahead and went out of town and have the numbers of two vets here that will see them if anything goes wrong. They are back on their normal diet and I am checking on him every couple of hours to make sure he is OK till Tues. He seems great now but we are definitely going in Tues
