 Hair dyed hair strand digested

Posted by: Nerodemo
-----
Had a recent incident with one of my gliders raiden(11 years old) he seems ok now

I had my hair bleached and dyed a week back and I don't think it was toxic as much as permanent hair dye
Anyways

Raiden at first seemed constipated and he'd lift his butt high up while trying to poop and poop came out with difficulty and bunched up and it was pitch black and smelled strange and he even pee blueish clear and looked to be in pain for 2 to 3 days and I was in a panic due to picking up his worse state right after my vet closed down for the weekend so I went all over town trying to find ingredients to at least calm him down before I can get ahold of a vet only to later on find out the culprit of his illness and as now he is no longer in pain but still pooping black but his poop contained a piece of blond hair with the other half of it being black/green
I'm going to give him a lot of fruits and stuff to flush out what's left of the dye that was on my hair strain he pooped out and since he pooped it out he no longer seem to struggle pooping

I'm posting this here incase someone hasn't posted any similar situations or has any questions about dyed hair and harm to gliders from it

So far I'm monitoring him but he now wants to play and is very active compared to before

If your not extremely careful I'd suggest not to have dyed hair

My problem is that I turned a whole room into a gliders play pen and it's basically their exercise space as my sleeping quarters so there was a chance of this happening

But if manageable for someone to have dyed hair and handling gliders without worry of this incident it's probably OK but for me I'm no longer going to dye my hair I'd rather give that up because my gliders are really old and I've already lost one for different reasons back in December he was 14 getting close to 15 and he was the father of raiden but I still ohave the mother to keep him company

 New Joey mom, her poop looks strange

Posted by: Mc2304

Hi, new Joey mom here! Our baby is 12 week old female and we just lover her so much. Im just a little worried about some of her poop. Most of it looks totally normal but then a few pieces are round in shape and like a light brownish orange color and almost opaque looking and definitely more wet. Im assuming that is diarrhea? The person we got her from says more than likely its just the introduction of new fruit. She was feeding vegetables with OHPW diet and we have kept that but also tried adding a few new fruits to that along with yogurt treats to help with bonding. Did we just do too much too soon? Or should I be worried about and infection? She is eating great and she has a new pee spot on her pad every morning so I can assume she pretty well hydrated. I just need a little advice and maybe some piece of mind as well as I am a new, nervous joey mom. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

 My sugar glider has a golf ball size swelling above genitalia

Posted by: Freyahbing

I am at a loss my boy banana is 5 years old on BML diet I rescued him from a pretty bad situation. He had shown no signs of any illness till last month he started to cry when using bathroom & swelling began above (two balls one bigger then the other) he was on antibiotics for 14 days. It didnt get better. Swelling got bigger. So back to vet. They test his poop for parasites & it was negative. She said swelling can be the intestines from him constantly straining?? On the way to vet he prolapses & they couldnt get it in with just a sugar soak. So they had to stitch it & give meds to help him poop smoother with pain/ anti inflammatory meds. 6 days later he showed such a good progress till today. Its back to the swelling size it was day one & he is crying again when using bathroom. Stool is liquid. He is eating okay. Not his normal self much more picky. He has another appointment with another vet on Tuesday for x rays. I have his meds still & will continue till then

 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.
