It is all too common for a sugar glider to need an amputation.

If a nail gets stuck and a wrist or arm gets broken, it may need to be removed. If a tail gets bitten, it has most likely been broken and will die and need to be removed. Issues such as prolapse, tumors, tooth infections, swollen eyes and even extended genitalia may need to be removed.

Broken tail has caused overgrooming and self mutilation.
