last week my baby sugar glider chewed he tail off at the base, i have been applying neosporin to it, but satuday she slowed down eating and has lost around 2 grams so far.....here is my question i am going to get her to the vet, but in order to do so i have to take out a loan, im wondering if anyone can give me a rough estimate on how much i should take out , and in the mean time what else can i do.

I would call the vet's office you plan to take her to and just ask how much an office visit, round of antibiotic, e-collar, and wound care will be. Explain what happened and ask about applying for CareCredit.

You're welcome! please keep us updated on your little girl. If you need mutilator advice you can contact Cora Holt or Val Betts, they're both quite versed in mutilators.

This little one needs to be seen sooner rather than later by a vet. Try applying for Care Credit also.

I'm not surprised she didn't stop eating before now or didn't do more damage than she did.

You can also beg the vet to work out a payment plan if you are not able to pay everything up front or it you don't work out the finances.
