Loc: Wallis Texas
Aussie came to us about three months ago. He was prolapsed and had mutilated his tail to the point that it was turning black. We got him to the vet and the tip of his penis had to be amputated. We also had him neutered and his tail was removed. Aussie had been housed alone in a small cage and fed a very poor diet. He was very bonded with his owner and when she had to go out of town for three weeks Aussie was left in the care of her nephew. By the time the owner returned he was in very bad condition. That is when he came to us.

The vet that did the tail amputation did not do a very good job. After a week the tail had not healed properly and was still seeping blood. We took him to another vet and within ten days his tail was healed. We monitered him for a couple of more weeks and he is doing fine. Free from the e collar and a happy little camper. The owner also had another male glider but he had been in a separate cage. When she brought Aussie, she also brought Dumas along. We had Dumas neutered and introduced him into Aussie's cage. There was no crabbing or fighting. Dumas seems to adore Aussie and wants to be with him all the time. I built a large cage for the two of them and two wheels. Last week-end they went home with instructions on proper diet and care. Now that they are together life should be a lot better for these two. Also, with the change in diet both of them have gained weight and their coats have become beautiful. The lady could not believe how chubby they are.

It was a long three months for Mary and me but Aussie is now completely recovered. Minus a tail, a powder puff, and the tips of his penis. But he is recovered and has a buddy. Hopefully he will have a long and happy life.

Aussie is living proof that mutilators can be saved!

You and Mary worked so hard with Aussie. Its so great to hear good news, and gives me hope for so many other gliders out there. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yelclap.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/dance.gif" alt="" /> I was on the phone with Mary right after Aussie and his brother left, athough she was happy he was well again, she still was <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> because she loves him and knows she will miss him. Mary, I tell you that you have the biggest heart in Texas, and this shows its true.
