 Tooth Abscess that won't go away!

Posted by: Llllllllllavender
-----
I have a sugar glider, Beauty, and she has had a bump under her chin for a while. Every time I take her to the vet she gets a new round of medication for it such as antibiotics and pain relief.. it'll subside for a minute and then come back. The last visit to the vet they said they don't want to pull a tooth because of how small of an animal she is and how she could not wake up from the anesthesia as well as they would have to take xrays and see if the infection spread in which it wouldn't really be treatable???

Now, her bump isn't subsiding quickly this time and it has me so worried. I am freaking out at the thought pf her not waking up from being put under and if it has spread.

What is the likelyhood of it spreading and her not making it? Any thoughts would be so appreciated.

 New Sugar Mama

Posted by: vaperluxe

I am a new mama temporarily to 2 adorable sugar gliders. They are both neutered males. Bandit and Morpheous belong to my brother and I am currently fostering them for the next at least 6 months while my brother is hospitalized. (No worries he's fine)

I have begun the bonding process and am glad to announce that after the first 4 days we have not had any crabbing and they have allowed me to put my hand into their snuggle cube and they have even climbed out of their cage and onto me. :) The bonding process is going very well I assume. I will be getting a bonding pouch in the mail soon also. I just went and bought a bunch of glider safe fruits and veggies and greens. They have kibble/pebbles and although I don't know alot about their diet and care just yet I am willing to learn and doing as much research as I can. I have read that fresh fruit and veggies is better than the kibble. I am open to any and ALL advice and help possible. I want to take the best care possible of these babies. Thank you all!

 Glider death

Posted by: Mushu.nala

My sugar bear, Mushu, died unexpectedly last night. I would like to have his body cremated. Does anyone know how much that costs? Also how do you cope with this? I don't know if I should clean out his cage or not or what to do with his toys. He didn't have a cage mate as he didn't get along well with others

 Sugar glider Lack of energy. Please please help me.

Posted by: Liz_aristi

I am absolutely obsessed with my babies. When it comes to money or time both resources are plentiful in the care of my sugar gliders. Please hear me out.

There only symptom really is lack of awake time. And perhaps over grooming although there is no physical indication of this. As in they seem to be over grooming, but there are no missing patches of fur.

Im used to my boys waking up around 8 PM and playing hard in the cage until maybe five. But as of recently both boys seem to be only awake
for maybe two or three hours a day at the most.

Of course I already brought them to the vet for an evaluation, she said that they both seem to have a fever but really no further information was given. They are on a 10 day course of antibiotics, were on day five currently. But I have yet to see any improvement.

Ive been dismissed before, because the boys are eating, they are drinking, their poop and pee is good. They physically look well but I know my boys and something is not right.

They have a staple diet, I followed the cage requirements to a tee, double critter nation packed full of forging toys and multiple sleeping options.

Room is at 74 degrees. I keep the cage very clean in order to promote health. I could go on and on, my point is that I have genuinely given them all of the things to be happy and healthy.

So what is going on? Im losing my mind over here and Im scared to death that something is wrong. Please please, if anyone on here has an additional information I would so much appreciate that.

 Pregnant female question!!

Posted by: Scrichey
-----
Hi, I have a long story. I will start from the beginning. Two years ago I started researching sugar gliders. Then I wanted some. I found a family ( male, female, and two joeys, male and female). I purchased them in October. After I weaned the joeys I wanted to sell the joeys. Sadly the female Joey passed away. Now I have the mother father and the older male Joey. The mother got pregnant again. The joeys are now in the pouch. That was about 5 weeks ago they went in the pouch. Now I have the two joeys and the older male joey. I am worried about the new joeys. The older male joey is aggressive towards me and sometimes his mother so I am afraid he will hurt the new babies. I want to sell him to a new home who can take care of him and bond with him and then he can have a family if his own. I have no clue where to post him at. I am also clueless with how you take care of the mother and they joeys. I need major help!!!

 My gliders arent eating!

Posted by: Vanessa2000

So my female Luna and my male Stitch havent been eating for a week, Ive put their fruits and vegetables with boiled egg and their vitamins every night but in the morning its still there, my male will take the meal worms when I feed them to him, and hell eat the yogurt drops, my female doesnt seem to like the worms so she doesnt take it from me, shell only eat the yogurt drops and papaya treats as well, they started breeding, so I feel like maybe that could have something to do with it. Theyre still very active though. Does anybody know what I should do? Or have any suggestions?
