#2482 - 09/14/01 07:11 AM Fallen star...

Vega died last night. I dont know what went wrong. When I went to play with him the day before yesterday (wed.), he was fine, he ran around the room and crawled up and down all over me. Before retreating to his cage he crawled into my cupped hand and fell asleep. But last night all he wanted to do was lay on my arm. He would lay with his chin resting on me. I set him down on the floor to see what he would do and he stood still for a minute but then his little body heaved and he threw up what looked to be leadbeaters. Some got on my arm and it felt slightly gritty. I called a vet who specializes in exotics and had expirience with sugar gliders. She told me to watch him carefully and if he threw up again to bring him in, but other wise keep him warm. After he vomited he perked up a bit. I went and got a small heating pad (the kind you microwave), wraped it in a towel and brougt it up. When I re-entered the room he was back to being lethargic. I set him on the heating pad and cupped my hand over him. About a minute later he started to convulse and have difficulty breathing. It was all over before I could do anything. <BR> He was eating the same thing that Sindel was eating with the exeption of crickets, he ate mealworms instead. I did a search on vomiting yesterday and alot of the posts had mealworms involved. I dont know if he was sick before I got him or if he got sick while in my care. I'm just trying to peice together what may of happened.

I'm so very sorry to hear that Vega passed away! It's heartbreaking when one of our little ones die. You seemed to show so much love to this little one, so I'm sure that Vega knew how much you loved and cared. <BR>My thoughts and prayers are with you.<BR>Kathy and Cerese
