Morning,
One of my boys has another prolapsed cloaca. I separated him and put a water based gel on his area. I don't know what to do anymore. They have an open water source- please give some suggestions.

I do have left over antibiotics from before.

I am nervous and scared as I am sure he is.

I would not administer the leftover antibiotic. He will have to see a vet asap. I'm going to review our previous conversation and be back.

So looking back at your last post, we recommended open water source.

I will assume you have kept the same.

Are these gliders related? Like maybe brothers?


Does this glider have same symptoms?
Is he straining?

Are they neutered?

I'm asking for others to read. I have no experience, but want to get info gathered.

How is Jake(?) doing?

The glider (Chip) in concern is not related to any other gliders. I am going to the vet.

He is sleeping now, I am hoping the sleeping will let him relax a bit. I put a water based gel on him and he has an open water source.

He is separated for now with an open water source. No body else has symptoms. They did in the past and were all put on antibiotics and did well. They are all neutered.

I haven't seen Chip strain at all.

This is all so scary frown

I have not administered any leftover antibiotics- thank you for the suggestion.

Just an update, Chip has a blocked anal gland- surgery next week. Heís on different antibiotics until then. The vet showed me where and what side he was blocked.

Glad you found out what was going on and that he didn't try to express his anal glands. That makes it 1000 times worse.

It's good news they identified the problem and there is a solution for it. Continued prayers for you and your little Chip.

Hey what is the name of this vet?
If you can't say it publicly, please PM it to me.

So RARE to find a vet that will actually take a serious look at a suggie--much less be able to do an advanced diagnosis and SURGERY?

I want this person in my Rolladex.

The vet I went to is Dr. Medlin- http://www.scottmedlin.com

I donít see why I canít give out his website smile

He gave me more knowledge and explained the procedure as well as the reason for the surgery, he said just antibiotics will only mask the problem.

He also explained post surgery care. The blockage is the size of a lentil.
