 Single mom, premature joey

Posted by: Chrislomas
-----
We adopted a trio (1 male 2 females,not fixed) not to long ago and were having issues with the females fighting. We separated the females with the plan to introduce a new friend later. Well the original pair got pregnant, yay!. The problem is the single female got pregnant as well. Both are fine and healthy.

Up to a few days ago tje single moms joey was in pouch and ok. Last night we noticed a tail and back side of the joey out of pouch. Momma was trying to get the joey back in. Joey was still attached.

Tonight things have changed. The joey is oop. Its ears are up, but momma seems to be more interested in running on her wheel the being a mom. Held the joey just fine, put back in pouch and mom would go in for a second then leave.

When holding the joey and mom she would clean and the Joey tries to feed but mom moves on.

Not sure what to do.

 Need Help ASAP to stop glider from chewing at surgical site

Posted by: Xtonsuggieluv

We have a 3 year old sugar glider that somehow broke his little leg. We had it fixed twice but it wouldnt heal correctly. We did an amputation about 2 weeks ago. The vet put a thick bandage over it because he apparently has a bad habit of gnawing at it. We took him in for his follow up to get the little cast off and his staples out. Even while still under partial anesthesia, he immediately started biting at it. He actually bit himself so bad, they had to rewrap it. The vet called and I could hear him crabbing. They had to constantly stick a pen in to distract him. We got him and did our best to keep him from biting himself in the pouch. In that short ten minute drive, he bit other parts of his body and ripped the fur. The vet said to put him in a towel. We usually dont carry him around free. The vet cant tell us how to stop him from self mutilation (besides to watch him). I dont know how we can do that 24/7 for the next two weeks. I want him to live. Ive sunk about $1500 in to saving him. But, I am at wits end. I know he can have a good life if he would let it heal. But, how to get that to happen. Please advise. We are so desperate. This is horribly heartbreaking.

Posted by: Potpot29

Hi guys!
Can anyone tell me how I would know if my baby has broken bones or fractures?
My stupid husband was playing with her and accidentally dropped her becauase he was cleaning her poop. She is 6 weeks old now. Im not sure if she has any broken bones because right after that happened she was still very playful and jumps eferywhere in the bed. No signs of hurt or limping but I read that they can be really good in hiding their pain or sickness. Help pls.

Hello all, I have a 2 year old male sugar glider named Freckles. He is on his own unfortunately as haven't been able to get another one. I've had him since 4 weeks old and he bonded very well with me. 2 months ago he bit me and has been aggressive with me ever since not letting me near his cage and crabbing. He is fine with my partner though and still loves him. I'm a female so not sure if it's because he's reached sexual maturity? CAN ANYONE HELP PLEASE!!!! I JUST WANT MY BABY TO LOVE ME AGAIN #128557;

 P A R A D I G M ____ SHIFT

Posted by: BatGirl

I don't even know where to start - everything's changed and yet nothing's changed...
_________________________________________________

FIRST - lots of edits to my photos and journals... postings too old to edit, so tailor them with this new paradigm information...

-------------------------------------------------
The RE-NAMING


Been awhile, and been getting more familiar with my three wonderful little Sugar Gliders as time goes on. Finally able to handle them more as they've become more comfortable with me. Playing in the tents really helps ;-)

Seems I've been a bit confused - I assumed the two bigger Sugar Gliders were the mom and dad, and the smaller one the daughter - but apparently I was wrong... The two bigger ones are both females with pouches, and the smaller one is actually a neutered male.

The one I assumed to be the mom, 'Piper', seems to be the 'dominant' one who does all the initial 'growling' (aka 'crabbing') when disturbed. But, she only does this when she's in one of the beddings/nests, and these two female Sugar Gliders stop when I run them out of their bedding/nest. The other female who joins-in as support - and whom I've mistaken for the 'dad' and been calling 'Aerrow' - is the daughter? Why is she so big compared to the smaller male 'dad' that I've been calling 'Starling' - mature male Sugar Gliders can be much smaller than mature female Sugar Gliders? WOW! I guess I don't really know how old any of these three are anyway. I now presume the 'child' Sugar Glider is over a year or two old, so she's rather 'grown' and no longer a 'baby girl'... she's very mature, but not 'dominant' like mom. And the neutered male, the 'dad', never joins in when the 'growling' starts up by the two females... I had assumed he was the 'baby' and just more timid - wild!

SO, while 'Piper' will remain being called 'Piper' (ie "pipe-down Piper"), the other female I've been calling 'Aerrow', I'm re-naming 'Starling', but will not refer to her as the 'baby girl' since she's quite mature and an adolescent female - however I will retain the 'Darling Starling' nickname for her as she was always just so very friendly, which I assumed it was because of her being a neutered male, but it's actually because she was just younger than the other two (even been calling her my new boyfriend as she was so friendly - have to start calling her my new girlfriend!).

Then, the male will no longer be called a 'baby girl' (probably pissing him off without knowing it, but then again being neutered he's probably not that offended either, heh, heh...). He'll no longer be 'Starling', and so shall be re-named 'Aerrow' ... and change his nickname from 'Hello Aerrow' to 'My Lovely Aerrow'... he's just so little, cute, and adorable!

Paradigm shift to say the least!!!
