The purpose of this post is to get as many health related links and articles all in one place for easy reference. Please feel free to bookmark for future reference.

Symptoms of a Sick Glider:

Health & Your Glider:

Rheasha's article regarding Self Mutilation:

Gliderpedia article on Emergency Preparation Kits:

Some other things I have for emergency purposes are:

Vet cage. This is a small cage used to take the suggies to the Vet, The measurements are 12" H x 12" W x 6" D. I also have a small, clean water bottle in a baggie that goes with it. It has a handle on the top for easy handling.

Hospital/Evacuation Cage. Again, this is a small cage which is used to quarantine a new suggie or house a sick one. It can also easily fit into the back of my Explorer. The measurements are: 24" H x 18" L x 18" D. It also has a handle on the top for easy handling. It also has a water bottle in a baggie inside it. (this might be the place to store any evacuation items.)

Magnifying Glasses. Because suggies are so small and I am old. This helps with nail clipping and seeing anything on them that I cant with a naked eye.

Iodine. A wound disinfectant and cleanser.

Hand Sanitizer. Self-explanatory

Travel Syringes. These are needle-less syringes that are in a plastic container with cap.

Suz's Video on How to do a Dehydration Test. (This glider is not dehydrated - notice how the skin goes back down immediately. If the glider is dehydrated - the skin goes down very slowly)

Help for a Rejected Joey:

Glider Anatomy:

Wellness Exams:

Peridontal Disease:

How to Make an E-Collar:

Giving Oral Medication:

Oxalate Content of Food:

Feel free to add any links and articles you want to share.

This is in serious need of a BUMP. PLEASE BOOKMARK THIS. It's worth taking the time to skim through so you know what topics are in here. Most questions asked on a daily basis are hidden in here somewhere. This is PRICELESS info!!

misscarl Posted - Apr 04 2011 : 11:17:44 PM
those WERE gruesome, but i asked for it. i just think its important to know how risky it is to breed gliders.
kyro298 Posted - Apr 04 2011 : 11:07:58 PM
There are some pretty gruesome ones in the Gliderpedia:

Luckyglider has posts with them as well but these are from his photo album since I don't have the posts specifically or the patience to find them at the moment:

misscarl Posted - Apr 04 2011 : 09:26:31 PM
has any one ever considered putting mating wound pictures up? i know it would be graphic, but maybe it could discourage people from breeding before they are fully prepared. just a thought.
