I have a 5 month old sugar glider "MOE" today he has been biting at his penis. It looks as if it is bleeding. He even fell off a branch biting at it and out of his bed he sleeps in. He rolls around on the bottom of his cage biting at it. I am holding him now and try to distract him when he starts to bite at it. I can tell he is irritated. He has, what looks like pink tinted fir around that area. I did give him a piece of strawberry two nights ago. He only ate about half of the quarter I have him. I read that can tint the urine. But he is just going crazy biting at himself. What do I need to do?? Please help. He is my baby. I do not know what to do. This is my first sugar glider.
Any advice is appreciated.

Do you have an E-collar if so please get it on him right away. He also needs to get to the vet NOW. These guys can do fatal damage to themselves in only a few unsupervised minutes.

Please RUN him to the vet now and update us as soon as you can.

I'll be thinking of you. hug2

Do you have a vet nearby that you can bring him to?
Do you have the materials on hand to make an e-collar?
If not, you can wrap him up in a piece of fleece like a burrito and hold him snugly to prevent him from attacking himself while you get him to a vet.

As already stated, he is self-mutilating. IMMEDIATE vet CARE is needed to prevent permanent damage or death!

Just got off the phone with Tammy. She's calling her vet to see if they're open today...

Tammy,
Once at the vet's you will need to have the vet run a Urinalysis and Culture & Sensitivity on the urine. In addition, the vet should do a fecal float & smear.

Can someone direct her to Bourbon? I don't have her number, but I know she is experienced in this and willing to help if there is ever an SM emergency like this... I could do some searching for it, but not sure if it's ok to post...

Hey everyone, thanks so much for everyones help. This place has been sooo wonderful.

Moe is resting now. I made the e collar and he is wearing it. He flopped around for a bit, I put him inside my shirt and he calmed right down. (he's use to being there). I'm not sure how the night will go, I'm thinking it will be a long one. I will let you all know how it goes.
Thanks for all the support and help.

Tammy Anderson
MOEsMom thanks

I spoke with her late last night, he is in an e-collar and is trying to get used to it.. sleep deprivation is always a problem the first night of having one one.. the e-collar has bought her time to go see her vet.. she will be getting him in first thing in the morning. She has an emergency vet lined up if she does need to see him, right now, he seems to be urinating and defecating fine. so that is a good thing. she is armed with loads of info for her vet.

Please keep us updated Moe's mom. I recently lost a glider under similar conditions and I am very concerned. I don't mean to scare you. But please let us know what the vet says.

We made it through another night, tho he did get out of his cage last night. I heard him scratching down the hall way towards my room (he's top heavy in this e collar)I jumped up out of bed, sure enough it was MOE, I reached down and he hopped right up in my hand. I think he was looking for me. I held him for awhile before putting him back to bed. I'm at work with Moe now,(he's in my shirt e collar and all and boy do I look lumpy haha).
The vet cannot see us until 3:30 today. I did ask her office if she was familiar with Sugar gliders and SM cases, they assured me she was.
I should thank Bourbon b/c with out that looooooong pep talk in the MIDDLE of the night Saturday night, I probably would have taken that e collar off for while as I felt sorry for him. By not doing that, I saved his life she said. Thanks again gal!
I know I said this in my last post, but you all are great and a great community, I'm so glad I found you all!!
I'll update after vet visit.

Thanks for the update.

T-by the time I got your message, B already had it, and no one is better, so I just watched the thread.

Do exactly what she tells you with this guy (my first glider was an SM, same area, and without B I would have lost him), and let us know how the vet goes. thumb
