Hi, this morning when I went to play with Skyler, my glider, I noticed that he had diarrhea. It wasnt to bad, but its not normal. He usually has hard poop. he doesn't seem as if he were under stress. Last night his meal was.... A table spoon of leadbeaters and some straw berry yogurt with 3 mealies. I might have put a little to much yogurt in, but if you can think of anything else that would be causing this please write back. Please!

The vet is the best person to ask this. Have you recenly changed diets? Sometimes a change in diet, stress, and parasites.

As I posted on another post my glider had girardia...this caused him to have it could be a parasite.

Just go to the vet...the vet needs to analyz the poop and see if its ok..they can also give him something to stop it.

thanks for all the help but an hour later after he had the diarrhea, it was all gone. no more, just like that. I think he might of had an upset tummy, but nothing more.

More than likely it was the yogurt. Be sure to use fat free and plain yogurt. I just mix a little fruit in it. Might want to give just a teaspoon of it twice a week.
