My baby Tobias died in my hands tonight. I just dont know what to do with myself. The tears wolnt stop. I came home gave them their food (he has a twin brother Maximus) When I went to the cage Tobias looked sad and I took him out with the pouch he was laying on. He rested on my cheast which he never does. He was actually spread eagle. Slowly he stoped moving each limb. He started doing what looked like dry heaves where his tummy would move and he would move his mouth. Then he started biting down on my shirt. I called the emergency vet immediately and she told me to bring him in but as she was telling me where they were (my normal vet was away) he stopped breathing. I told the woman on the phone this and she told me how to do cpr. I blew gently into his mouth and nose and felt his lifeless body fill with air but he didnt start breathing. He wasnt moving and his body started getting stiff..I just started bawling. I dont konw what happened. He was eating good. He was jumping around the cage yesterday. He was healthy. I fed him a good diet of fruit veggies leadbeaters and inscets..either crickets or mealworms. I dont think he was choaking cause he hadne eaten yet..God what happened..Now im more scared of what will happen to his brother because ive heard stories that they can get very lonely and die as well. I feel so bad and sad..I dont know what to do with myself. Im about to go burry him in a park with lots of trees so he can feel free..I hope he knows how much i love him and how sorry I am. I dont konw if this was my fault or not but I cant help but think it is..If anyone has any advice or anything please let me know..Thanks for listening =..( <BR>Jazmine

Jazmine, PLEASE consider taking him to a vet and getting a necropsy done. This sounds similar to other deaths recently and you could be helping out a LOT of other gliders and glider owners with the results. <P>------------------<BR>Lucy

I am not sure what I can do. I dont mind taking him for the surgery if it would help other gliders, but my vet is gone for the next three days and there are no other exotic vets in my area..Does anyone have any suggestions.

Jaz...<P>I know this sounds morbid, and I really don't even like posting this but you could keep him in your fridge. Not the freezer as it can damage soft tissue and then it wouldn't tell a vet anything. I think it is wonderful that you are willing to have a necropsy done. This very well could help save another gliders life, possibly even Max's since you don't know what caused Tobias' death. Again, I am so sorry for your loss, and I will keep you and your gliders in my thoughts.<P>Love,<BR>Mare []http://www.sugarglider.net/ubb/images/icons/smile.gif[/]

I dont mind keeping him for the next few days, but I called the vet and they said that they probably wouldnt be able to tell anything after that amount of time. But ill just wait till then and find out for sure. Im not sure how im going to do it because as of tuesday im in school and work all day, but ill figure something out. thanks..

Im sorry about what happened.But the best thing to do is not to think about it. That's what i did when my dog died. I have had hampsters and irds die after i have had them for about 2 or 3 years.One of my hampsters lived to be 6 . ANd thats what i did is not think about it. Just be glad you didn't lose a dog or a leg or something. I was upset when my birdand hampsters died but when my dog died i was devistated.If i were you i would begin to pay alot more attetion to what you are feeding your other sg. I read that if the insects are still alive when it gets into the animals stomach it can live up to 8 hours and they can eat there way out of a small animals stomach due to the lack of acad in their stomach.Thats what happened to my bird when i was a kid i feed it a babie w

I burried Tobias today. He rests in a beautiful garden. I put him in a basket and when i was about to say goodbye I thought that I should place a flower in the basket. All of a sudden one of those fuzzy seeds came flying in the air and basically landed on the basket. It was so beautiful. My mom told me it was a milkweed seed. I placed it in his basket and put another flower in it as well. I was told that milkeweed is the soul diet of the monarch butterfly. I just kept picturing that next year their would be a milkweed plant where tobias is burried. and thinking that if you could look under the earth you would see the roots of the plant sprouting out of this little purple basket. I am not too sure about what happens to us when we die. But one thing I do know is that we are all energy, and energy can not be created or destroyed. So Im hoping that tobias's energy is now in the earth, giving life to plants and food to the butterflies that nourish on the nector of the milkweed. I told him that he is now free, to go play in the trees above. I put him at the base of many trees so he could play and have fun. Its amazing how something so little can touch your heart so deep. Thank you all for your support. I now shall dry my tears and hope for many smiles with my other boy..maximus..<BR>love<BR>Jazmine..<P>------------------<BR>Jessica smile (The worried mommie)<BR>Maximus :o (The crazy, sweet, exploring, houdini)<BR>Tobias :o (The loving, cranky, shy, baby)

Im so very sorry about Tobias.<P>What you wrote is beautiful....it made me cry. You may very well get some little milk weeds sprout up []http://www.sugarglider.net/ubb/images/icons/smile.gif[/]<P><BR>I buried a beloved little family member named Bug in Sept. of last year....I had decorated his little grave with tiny pumpkins for fall....about a month-month and a half ago, a strange plant sprouted up beside his grave....we finally figured out it was a pumpkin plant!! Ive been taking pictures of it at different stages. It gets these beautiful orangy colored blooms all over it and has completely covered the flowerbed and his little tombstone now. Im hoping we'll get some little pumpkins from it! Its so strange too because I could never grow anything, Ive always tried but the plants always die (I think I try too hard), but this pumpkin plant has gone crazy! I think its Bug's plant! You very well might have milkweeds sprout up!! Tobias is still here, in your heart, and like you said energy just doesnt go away....<P>Take care...Give little Maximus lots of TLC! Again, I am truly sorry. Hugs to you.... []http://www.sugarglider.net/ubb/images/icons/smile.gif[/]
