I have talked to a lot of great people on the phone throughout the night.No one seems to know what it could possibvly be.This is the same baby I talked to you guys about before,Cassie.She started out with hlp,been taking her to the vet,on Friday afternoon her feet had started to swell and started getting raw.Ive watched her and she is just licking them.Everything else is fine with her,I am considering putting her on the RR,I dont want to, but if I have to do it to save her I will.It breaks my heart.I really love this little girl.Does anybody possibly know what it could be?

Swollen, raw joints is one of the symptoms of HLP. What type of treatment is she on for the HLP? Was MetaCam prescribed? If not, it needs to be ASAP because it is a pain medication and also an anti-inflammatory. Bring her to the vet RIGHT AWAY! If her feet get too painful, she could start to SM...
My Pika had HLP and the swollen fingers and toes were one of the symptoms she experienced. It is very painful for the glider.

Did your vet have any idea what was going on with her when you saw them on Friday? Are her feet pink still, or a darker color? Sorry about not giving much advice, but we need a few more details here.

FYI, Here's a picture of Pika's hand when it was at its worst. The Metacam helped tremendously with reducing the swelling and making her more comfortable.

Please get some MetaCam from your vet for her right away. Don't delay! I can not emphasize enough the amount of pain she is in right now...

She absolutely needs the vet.

Please offer pedialyte or glideraide immediately.

Please thin any protein supplement you are giving her, like ensure, with one half pedialyte. Electolyte imbalance and too high a protein:fluid balance can overload the system with protein and cause this. Calcium and electrolyte imbalance can cause this.

Godspeed

Ok, I have been working with Judy on Cassie's condition since she brought her home. I contacted MaryH and we were working on a treatment plan for Cassie when the condition changed after beeing seen on thursday. Her feet and toes begain to swell. Judy believes the vet drew blood from this area. She has started to lick continuasly and has develpoed raw areas. I told her it was due to the HLP and her leggs were probably having strange sensations,and needed to be on baytril asap and that she needed to have a fecal float and smear done. This could not wait any longer as she was worsening. I am not a vet not do I portray to be one. Cassie was lathargic and dehydrated. I walked her threw a sub-q of 1cc and the feeding process. I told her to give a small amount of honey on the tip of her finger. I called psycosissy at work and explained the situation to her. We needed to act asap on this as Cassie was crashing fast.psycosissy did everything she could while being at work, she was very limited. sissy called luvmysuggies and then inturn luvmysuggies contacted Vanessa. After around an hour or so luvmysuggies had the RR complete.Vanessa offered to take over her care, weather it was temporary or permanant was at the discression of the two parties. I remained on the phone with Judy as she was very upset about her babie. psycosissy and I waited patiently as we could. sissy still at work waiting to hear the news. We lost contact with Judy for a few hours. I spoke to her this morning and she said cassie ate and went potty. Her condition was the same. She had a vet appt. this morning and would let me know what is next.
Thanks for all you help.

Korasmommy,
Thank you for the background info on this glider and her condition. I doubt that the vet drew blood from the hands and feet - possibly from the leg, but not from the hands and feet. The swelling is in all likelihood due to the HLP and does need to be treated with a pain med/anti-inflammatory to reduce the swelling. Although I am not a vet, nor do I profess to be one either, I do know that this is the treatment necessary for the type of swelling involved with HLP based on my experiences with Pika a year ago. Hopefully Cassie's vet will concur and prescribe the Metacam (or another alternative) for her...

Judy has been threw alot with this lil girl. She recieved them from a underage girl. She has the mom, and the brother to Cassie. When Judy recieved these she was told the daddy had died. This was from the neglect of the owner and her dog. Judy bless her heart had brought these babies into her home not knowing she had already been having signs of HLP. We all know how to and what if, but when it comes down to our own babies, we do tend to forget everything we know. This is normal. Judy and her husband do the best they can for their babies, and I applaud that.

I am very proud of Judy. I have seen some wonderful pictures of her sugar's and Judy. She does love them and cares for them. And they are beautiful. I will continue to offer and give all my support and prayers to Judy and Cassie

Ok, I was asked by Judy to give update on baby Cassie. Judy has returned from the vet's visit. He has performed the fecal float and smear. X rays, and she said a few other tests. They have started her on both the metacam and baytril. He said her health looked pretty well. She will get the test results as they come in and let use know what they show. The swelling has gone down in one of her feet already. The feet are still raw from grooming and scraping. Judy said there was a small [censored] hole in her ankle, but undetermined if last vet drew blood from there. She was told to ask the previous vet. Other than that she seem comfortable and in good spirits.
I will continue to pray for Cassie's recovery and offer all my support.

Baby Cassie has been doing better untill this morning. Judy went in and found Cassie bloody. She has been chewing her foot, this is the foot where the vet said he had drawn blood from. She has finished all her batryl and is still giving her the metacam. She has applied neosporin to the open area and wrapped it up.I have been in contact with Vanessa, but we are needing lots of prayers and to find Kathy. With it being Christmas Eve, so many people are out of town and are un reachable. Judy and I have been trying to set up a RR to get her here to my house in Kansas with no luck. Judy is afraid that Cassie is not going to last much longer with out help. Please if anyone can help Judy pm me and lets help this little girl. Thanks Kora
