I have a few gliders and one of the smaller ones that struggled is losing his battle. i have had the gliders for a few weeks and have isolated him with 2 smallewr gliders to keep an eye on him. a week ago he was moving slower, eating less and sleeping outside of the pouch away from the other 2 babies. over the period of 3 days he has almost quit eating and will not even swollow apple juice or pear juice when being force fed. Sunday morning 4am. i have woke up every hour -2 hours over last two days to attempt to force fed him with syringe with almost no success. his nose and feet are almost yellow they are so pale.
after getting him to take down about half cc of pedialyte he stood up and urinated on my hand bright yellow. Almost like iodine. it even stained my hand. keeping him warm and only trying to administer warm fluids. losing my battle and no vets avail. as i am on the road traveling in Kearny NE. i got a hotel to get on email in efforts to try and save him. PLEASE help scooter!!!!!!!!!

I'm going to sleep for an hour or so and check back. I hope he is still with me. if he is im wondering if it if poss to put the catheter all the way down his throat to get fliuds in him. is there some thing wrong with his liver or kidneys because of the neon yellow urine? if i can't find a vet in the area should i use any meds or oral B1 vitamins?

That color would indicate extreme concentration of urine/possible dehydration. Has this little one been to the vet...and what EXACTLY do you feed your gliders?

Also, where, exactly, in NE are you? I'm in Utah, so will have to look things up-and the closer I can get to you, the better, and I'll see what I can find. For now, here's the vet database for NE.

If you can find a 24 hour vet I can also tell them what to do, experienced with gliders or no.

Link to NE vets:
Okay, we have one listed in Omaha...if you can pinpoint surrounding areas/cities, I'll try and get closer:

Your diet may very well be at issue, but no time for that now.

Glider will need subq fluids and probably calcium with
Urine test isn't likely if dehydrated, and fecals are iffy
KEEP THE BABY WARM

I found a listing with Kearny, NE vets, and if you can post a phone # will try and have suz call you-she is VERY experienced with the little ones.

First, here's the link:

Okay, I'm on the phone with an answering service in Kearny for West Villa Animal Hospital-they connected me with an on call vet and I gave the number to the poster. Keep your fingers crossed for this baby.

Just so you know, the vet is welcome to call as well, and I will give what info I can. It woulnt be the first time I've consulted with a vet-although I am not a vet, and won't recommend dosages, I can point them in the right direction, with the many rescues with healt issues I've had.

Good luck, and I hope your little one makes it. Update when you can, and we would welcome you as a member (it's free) so you can post in any forum. This may be in Health & Hygiene when you update, so look for it there. All my hopes and prayers for your wee one. hug2

As I said when I spoke to you on the phone, it is very important to get this little one into a vet asap. Jaundice (yellowing of the skin) is a sign of liver failure and can only be treated by a vet. Try to force some liquids into the little guy until you can get him in. Place a drop of liquid on the back of his tongue and then force him to swallow by rubbing his nose and/or throat. Continue to do this as he needs to be rehydrated ASAP.
Please do update us on his progress. Hopefully the vet will be able to give him sub-q fluids and possibly be able to treat the jaundice as well.
I'll be praying for you & the little one.
hug2
