I'm not entirely sure what happened. I have two gliders who have been together going on 3 years at least. Both girls.

They were fine last night and morning, but tonight I went down to do tent time and Isis was hanging by her leg. It was very obvious that she had passed. When I took her out, her face was really puffy. Her eyes were closed, it looked like her nose had something that came out of it and super puffy cheeks. On her neck was a raw like wound that certainly hasn't been there.

I'm not sure what could have happened =( I'm wondering if Abby went to check her out after she was dead and that's how the neck wound got there. It doesn't look deep or anything.

I feel like a horrible glider mommy =(

The only thing I could think of is maybe she choked.

You are not a horrible glider mom...we have all been through losing an animal and it's never easy and we always ask ourselves if we could have done something different. Know that gliders especially don't show us their ills until rather late sometimes. You had beautiful Isis for 3 wonderful years, remember those times when you think of her. I am truly sorry for your loss.

I guess I just don't understand what happened. I cut up mango and apples for her last night - I'm wondering if a stray seed got in there and she choked/was poisoned by it.

It sucks because I had a near death experience about 6 months ago with Abby when I found her in her pouch cold and very very lethargic/dehydrated - I nursed her back to health and now she's fiestier than ever.

Thank you, I appreciate all your kind words. I just wish I knew what happened. My vet said the reason her cheeks were puffy/swollen was because when she died she was hanging upside down so everything just rushed to her head.

He's not sure why she died either at this point. Said the wound on the neck isn't deep and is definitely not the cause of death. it's just raw and probably was caused by scratching.
