How did it get wet? Was it in the cage in the pouch, or was it in a bonding pouch? Do you mean soaking wet, or could it be sweat? Put the glider in a dry pouch - did it pee on itself?

I don't know much, but someone will be here soon to help you!

Is it water from a bottle?
How old is she?
Is it pee?

I would wrap her in a warm towel and dry her off gently. Hang in there, someone with more knowledge will be here soon!

Some gliders do pee in their pouch, unfortunately - also, sweat could be the issue. If she didn't FALL into liquid, then I think she'll be ok. But put her in a dry pouch & keep her warm until she drys thouroughly.

Please go to the vet because in a quick search on the subject I found that as a sugar glider ages they regulate their body temperature much like a dog, and that is through their feet by evaporation. With the diahrrea I think you should get to a vet as soon as possible.

Please keep us informed.

Whenever we got my boy neutered he would pee on himself and be soaking wet. It may be that she is peeing on herself because of a new environment, because some of them do. Tell us what the vet says though. Whenever ours would pee on himself I was [censored] out. He would be soaked for no reason, and one day he just stopped. If the vet says it's normal and she continues doing it just dry her off as quickly as possible

I just had a glider pass away recently, and one thing i seen was she would be soaking wet, with no real explanation. SShe was very lethargic, and also had runny stools.
I HIGHLY suggest bringing her to an ER vet, its better to be safe then sorry. I hope its just a little accident wink Good luck!!
