Gemini--Make sure you have some fresh water for your glider so it does not get dehydrated. What volume and how frequent is your glider vomiting? Did your glider vomit right after eating something or was it later? Do you have any pedialyte handy--just in case you need to get to a vet if the vomiting does not subside soon?

While you are answering these questions--I am going to be here with you so you are not alone. I will try to do as much as I can from here. Do you need to talk to me directly? Just click on my e-mail icon and send me your number. I will give you a call if that will help.

Check these links, e-mail me your number, and I will walk you through the rest of the way.

she vomited a couple times in a row, she stopped now, but I can tell she is not feeling good. She is not using her wheel, just sits in it.

I've called the vet in charlotte, but he is on vacation over the holidays.

I don't have any pedialiyte. That's about the only thing I dont have here right now. ahhh, figure.

raleigh is a long ways,so as new bern(I think over 6 or 7 hours)

i found this link:
http://www.isga.org/vetlist.htm#SC

this vet is about 4 hours, but I am not sure if she accepts emergencies at this hour.

Gemini--Craig and I are going to team up and help you on this. E-mail me your telephone number and Craig is going to remain at his computer checking out some information for you. I can talk to you on the phone while Craig does some research on your behalf and I can talk to you on the phone to get more information. Craig and I are IM'ing each other now. We think we have a couple of solutions or stop gap measures for you. We are not vets, but at this hour of the morning would you consider two Moderators in place of the vets? LOL

We just want you to know you are not alone and will do everything we can to help with our limited veternary knowledge.

Surfside is basically Myrtle Beach, you could get there in a couple of hours if you can contact the vet. Good Luck!
In my prayers!

The main issue, until you get to the vet is to make sure that she remains hydrated. Try to get a sample of the liquid that she vomitted up so the vet can test it.
Some of the possible causes could be an alergy to food, giardia, or some stomache virus, intestinal blockage, or UTI. It may have been a reaction to "bad" food/bugs also. I'm still reading, will post more when I find it.

Gemini,

You are doing the best you can for her right now by keeping her hydrated. The vet in newbern is a good one, but also a long drive. I could try them if you would like. I will be on until 6 or 7 am if you need any help, what little I can offer.

I saw the new bern, but all the emergency vets are not glider experienced...at least it seams like it. Why did this have to happen on a holiday weekend? ahhhh. I am still searching too.

I think new bern is about 7 hours or so (yahoo map can't even find it, so I am guessing by looking at a regular map)

The clarksville, tn office is closed until monday. this really bad.
I pretty much checked all surounding states. No vet at all in georgia.

I'm about an hour from Newbern and can get to Charleston in 5 hours, but I'm not sure how that relates to Columbia. Columbia is 2 hours from there but in a different direction (down I-26). She is highly reccomended as a vet if we can get ahold of her.

Update: The glider took the water so she is getting rehydrated. She also took the yogurt and it did not come back up. I went over with Gemini some of the reasons for vomitting and Craig was posting all of those exact same reasons at the same time--Good work Craig! Gemini has a number to the vet now. She has my home telephone number and she is going to post any updates or changes. Give her some time because she is trying to get her glider to a vet even though the glider's condition is now stabilized. Gemini's condition is also stabilized! LOL

Gemini--Any emergency vet, even if not one that specializes in gliders is OK for emergencies. Mein Deutsche ist nicht ausgezeichnet aber nur gut. Es tut mir leid! Bist du mude? Veileicht, ich bin mude. Haben Sie eine guten Abend oder Morgen? LOL Auf Weidersehen!

Gemini--Any vet in an emergency is better than no vet at all.

I'll drive, that's not a problem, but I don't think we can get a hold of anyone right now, not over the holidays. I called pretty much everybody but new bern.
If you make it in 5 hours to charlston then I should be able to make it too (going I 20 and I95 , then taking hwy 70 to new bern)

Gemini-I just tried to reach the glider-knowledgeable vet in Florida that did a good job treating Petunia while I was there. Unfortunately, their 800 number was answered by their answering service and there's noone on call right now. Sh-t. They may have someone in the office tomorrow and it would be better if someone else called them next since my last words to the answering service lady were "thanks for nothing". It's Marathon Veterinary Hospital and we saw Dr. Doug Mader. I'm pretty sure that their other docs also have experience with gliders, but Mader takes care of 4 gliders at a small zoo on Stock Island. Their phone numbers are 800-832-7694 and 305-743-7099. I'm pretty sure they give priority to established clients, so feel free to use my name (Alice Senturia) on the off chance that it'll help. I wish I could help more. Hang in there.

alice, where in FL??

I can't thank you guys enough. You don't know how much better you make me feel.

Babi is still not looking like she is doing better, but she is not throwing up (unless I've missed it while on the computer - she is in her cage right now)

You could also try a nearby vet and have that vet do a phone consult with a glider knowledgeable vet. Craig will be monitoring this post for the rest of the morning. Try calling Bourbon again if you can not get ANY vets in the next hour. She may be able to help and know of a vet that is closer. I know you tried once before but she was probably in deep REM sleep.

Is the yogurt and water staying down still? How is your glider acting? Any lethargy?

ohh, she is out of her wheel and climbing. I guess that's good news. Still, I read a post after I searched for "throwing up and vomiting" and found one message saying that her glider died the day after it vomited.

That really gets me.... I wish I could find a vet tonight

I just spoke to a local vet who has seen gliders but doesn't consider herself very knowledgeable. I read her all the info I had and she suggested that you not push oral fluids until your glider hasn't vomitted for 2 hours. When I inquired about a subcutaneous shot to rehydrate the glider, she agreed that that would be good and you wouldn't have to wait or see a glider-knowledgeable vet for that. Hope this helps alittle. alice

That vet is at an emergency clinic in St. Louis-the phone number is 314-739-1500.
I just tried 2 other emergency clinics and neither one had anyone there who knows about gliders. Sh-t.

answer machine on bourbon's line.
Alice, not to affend the vet, but I really would like to have a vet that knows at least a tinny bit about gliders. I am not sure if it's a good idea not to give her any liquid. they dehydrate to easily, I think water is probably neccessary at this point.

Thanks anyway. I know you are trying to help too.

ahh, I just checked yahoo, st louis, is 16 hours away. Now that is too far <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="images/icons/smile.gif" /> by the time I make it there It's sunday evening, then I could've waited until monday. Don't forget guys, I did not sleep yet, and I don't know how far I am able to drive. (don't want to fall asleep on the wheel now)
