My glider stitch has a red dot that he is constantly licking. It looks inflamed and it bothers him very much. i just took him out to the tent and he was perfectly fine when we came back in he and his friend nemo went in their pouch for a while, then i went to do their food when i came back he was on his wheel licking it. Im not sure what happened. What can this be? Is it serious? Thank-you

It could be his penis and it hasn't fully retracted. How long has it been this way? Are you able to get a picture of it for us?

You can do it a couple of ways. If you would like to email it to me so I can post it, I'll be glad to do this - darlingaim@verizon.net. Or, you can either upload the picture onto Photobucket and post the link, or if the photo is small enough, you can go down below, to Switch to Full Reply Screen, then File Manager, upload your pic and hit submit.

I just wonder if his penis has not retracted and now it's too swollen to do so. I've asked a couple of people to take a look at the pic - hang tight, Vanessa.

Do you have KY jelly on it? It looks wet. Keep a close eye on him so he doesn't start chewing on it. If you're not putting KY on it, start now. I'd apply it every 20 min or so. If he absolutely won't leave it alone, I'd get him in to the vet ASAP. You can also put an ecollar on him and use Prep H to help reduce swelling and help his penis retract.

Good luck and keep us updated!

I think it looks wet because he's been licking on it quite a lot.

Vanessa...do as Connie says. If you don't have Prep H and KY, please go get some. If he's making noise, then he probably DOES hurt.

Can you get him to a vet now? If he refuses to leave it alone, put him in an ecollar so he can't reach it and cause damage. Do keep KY jelly or Prep H on it. It must be kept moist at all times.

What kind of noise is he making? Can you describe it?

Yes, that Prep H.

How old is he and his mate and are they neutered?

is that a bubble like an abcess, I have seen that before but I cant remember where. vet please and Please let us know the outcome, thats how we learn. Praying for you and your boy. after you get an ecollar on you can apply max strength oragel and benzodent (make a paste with the two to numb the area). I know others are helping you and you need a vet but if you absolutely cannot get in to one tonight then mutilation protocol needs to be followed before he starts tearing into his privates with his teeth.

Just got off the phone with Vanessa. She's running to the store to get Prep H and a notebook cover to make a shot glass ecollar. Her mom is with her and they're going to wrap him burrito style, if he doesn't leave his area alone. Right now he's sleeping. I'm sure he'll wake up and be very uncooperative once they go to put the collar on. She promised to call me back if she has any problems with the ecollar.

Cora, you've had a lot more experience with this with Spenny. Is it ok if I have her call you if she needs more help?

This has popped up many times in the last few years. It is kinda like a pimple (that's my elementary explanation). In every case so far, it has just disappeared as fast as it came on - usually within a 36 hour period. No glider with this thus far has had any complications. I know of at least 4 different people who have experienced this. Let me see if I can find one of the threads.

of course I can be called! not a fan of the shotglass but it will be ok short term. special silo bird feeders have to be used and the poor glider has to look through funnel vision. the same plastic can make a satellite collar. They can eat and drink out of shallow ceramic dishes with the satellite! Thats cool(I knew I saw it somewhere) Val but if he has irritated, is making noises and wont leave it alone then with all due respect I still recommend an ecollar.

Thanks Cora! I was trying to explain how to McGuyver an ecollar with a 20 oz soda bottle, but she was more comfortable with making one with the cover and mole skin. I believe her mom is watching him while she runs to the store. I cautioned them against leaving him alone for any length of time. He wasn't a happy camper when she took the picture.

On you tube under coras gliders I have a video of applying a satellite collar. A cd can be used for a pattern. It then needs to be trimmed up about 1/4 inch or so or it will be too long. cut a slit about 1/4 inch or a little more then veer to the right and cut out a small circle for the neck and round off the corners of the slit. make sure its nice and smooth. then put moleskin around the neck and outer aspect of the collar. look at the video, make sure that his neck is stretched out, put the collar around the middle of the neck real quick and get it tight enough that it cant come over his head, just make sure he is breathing by watching his sides rise and fall, prabably quickly because he is going to be mad then staple. He will then be sad and will try every thing he can to get out of him, if he does slip it then either the neck was not stretched out good enough or it wasnt tight enough, try try again! I use yoggies or mealworms to get them to stretch their neck out.

Thank-you guys. I put him to eat for a little before i put the ecollar. I was sleeping until now. Im going to make the e-collar the only thing I'm nervous about is making it too tight or loose.
