#430229 - 12/08/07 10:21 AM What causes Jaundce?

I was looking at some pics from the sick glider post. I saw the jaundce photo but couldn't really tell what I was looking for. This morning, Spice was hanging on the cage and her belly color was a little yellowed. With her being dehydrated, I wasn't sure if she could have a case of jaundce. Maybe it was early and my eyes still had sleep in them smirk

In female gliders, you will notice a slight discoloration around their pouch area. Sometimes discoloration is caused by poor diet as well.
In a glider with Jaundice, the bottoms of their feet, their nose, and under the fur will be a yellowish color. This is usually a cause of liver problems.
If you can post a pic for us to see, we might have a better idea of what your seeing.
If she is acting strange, or you feel that something is not quite right, please bring her in for a vets opinion.

Linda gave a very good description. Here are two pics, one is scent gland staining. The other is jaundice in a very sick glider. Jaundice affects the skin. Staining affects the fur.
I don't have any pics of pouch staining, sorry!

LSardou, I am currently having issues with my home PC. I have been working solely off of my laptop from work at home. I don't have a place for my memory card on it. I have a pretty good pic of Spice's belly but can't upload it until my home PC is fixed. I will post the pic in a new thread as soon as possible.
