Laurie was losing a little weight, so I took her to the vet last week. She was still eating, running in her wheel, etc. Acting normally. I started trying to give her ensure. The vet said to keep and eye on it, was a little worried that she was breathing more heavily than usual, and told me to bring her right back if she didn't improve. She still seemed her normal self until about a day and a half ago. I took her back in yesterday, and the vet said she was anemic and to change her diet. She stopped eating entirely last night, so I gave her some ensure via syringe and some water. She passed away this morning around 7:30AM CST. She was sitting on my chest and she just started gasping. Then she was gone. The other two gliders, Rory and Dani, are fine - but I will be watching them very closely.

Laurie, you were a great friend and you will be missed.

So sorry for the loss of Laurie. How old was she, if you don't mind me asking?

Hello, thanks everyone for all of your condolences.

Brownies, Laurie was about six years old.
