I'm not sure if this is urgent , but wanted good advise . It looks like Bailey had a large patch of hair pulled out yesterday while in heat. Her skin is raw in a couple spots but no broken skin. Should I separate her immediately or see how it looks tomorrow

Yes, you will have to separate her until the hair has grown back. Her buddy will continue to help her keep it clean, doing more damage than good. You don't want them making it better.

If you can get some Veterycin or Microcyn (the hydrogel) is best and spray it on the wound a couple times a day.

This is the second time it has been bad. Do you think it's ok to separate her when she is in heat to avoid this issue. My other female doesn't have this problem, but she is a lot more strong willed than this glider.

Yes, it would be good idea to separate her from him when she is in heat.

I'ts now over a month, her wound is a lot smaller but still there. I've let her play with the others, and the other girl bites the wound off. Could it be absessed? She has lost so much weight from being alone,, I take fear out everyday, but I know she wants to be back with the other gliders. It makes me sad.

Add some avocado to her diet, she needs to stay alone until the hair grows back or her buddies will open it back up again.
