Recently I started noticing that my sugar glider is soaking wet from body to tail in his cage very morning. I don't know the cause of this but she have been acting normally. Please help!!

Does your glider have a water bowl or water bottle that hangs on the side of the cage?

Is he alone in the cage?

Please take a few moments to register on the board so you can take full advantage or all the forums.

She have a water bottle hanging by the side. and she sleeps alone. Could it be her pee? because i recently introduced pears into her diet and im wondering if it's because it is high in water content and hence she is peeing more frown im worried because I know that they are not supposed to be in contact with water.

Anonymous hey!
That is a really weird problem.
They normally won't seek out contact with water--it's usually accidental.
What's you guys' story? How long have you had her?
Can you post a pic of her all wet?
How hot is it in room where she sleeps?
How long has this been going on--more exactly--like...how many nights has it happened?
And...is it every single night, or are there some nights it doesn't happen.
What kind of cage and cage toys do you use.
A pic of that would be helpful too.

Contact with water: Don't worry--that was just a movie.

But they get chilled easily if they get wet. Hypothermia a real danger if they are wet.
Does she have a friend?

I think a vet visit is in order, have them check for a urinary tract infection.

She may be peeing in the pouch because she has a UTI, while your there have them check for parasites also.

Once you have ruled out both of those we will go from there.
