And now my Thor has giardia. I'm freaking out. I feel like a total failure as a glider mom now. I thought I was keeping everything clean enough but apparently not.
Will be doing meds for all the gliders now and I will deep clean both cages until I'm too exhausted to continue.
I'm so worried.

You aren't a failure. You are doing everything possible for your gliders, you got Thor to the vet and you caught this, a failure wouldn't have done that.
Every once in a while there are things you can't control that pop up, this is a learning experience. I know how scary it can be to go through antibiotics as I just did two rounds with one of my gliders because we thought she may have been severely sick. It is exhausting and brutal and scary but i promise you it is worth it. You are doing everything you can for your gliders and that is what matters most.

Thank you. I should've cleaned the wheels more often. I will now.
Started the two cagemates on meds tonight. They are not fans of Tutti Fruity flavor apparently. Took me three hours to clean that stupid hex cage. Nice big cage for gliders. Completely impossible to clean thoroughly for glider slaves.
I just hope I caught it in time. Thor looks terrible.
Thank you again!

He's still not better. He's awful in fact. Keeps getting worse. Swollen hands and feet, large sore areas all over his body. The vet doesn't know what's wrong. And I don't know what to do. It's awful.

So sorry to hear, however such symptoms don't looks like giardia, have the vet considered the possibility of an allergy to the medecines?
 Look what I found on Ebay
