I've been trying for months to get my cage of 2 and my cage of 3 into one large cage. Well, they were doing ok...so I thought until I got Pogo out(the female from my previous cage of 2 gliders) when I realized she wasn't using her back legs very well and she's REALLY skinny!!! She's always been REALLY small, but not this small!!! I'm really scared. I think she's been scared to go down and eat because some of the other gliders are food aggressive....even though I put 2 large bowls of food in the cage and 2 glider kitchens.

Anyway, I took Pogo and her brother Herky out of their new cage and put them back into their old cage so they could eat and not be stressed. I kept the wheel out...because she runs all the time and with her being this small I don't want her running. Not to mention she would almost fall out of the wheel because she's so week. I don't think it's HLP because she's week all over...probably from not eating.

She's eating really well...and I've been giving her as many mealworms as she can eat. She was in my bra for a long time, but I just put her back in with her brother so she can rest.

But I do have a question...I feed the Priscilla Price diet and I was wondering how I get her to eat more of the mix as opposed to all the other fruits and veggies? She doesn't eat much and I'm afraid she's picking out all the good things and not eating her veggies(so to speak).

I had this problem with my girls. Jacobi was getting thin, but for a few weeks, I would take her in the bathroom with the tub of BML and some fruits and veggies. I would scoop a bit of BML with a baby spoon and wouldn't let her have a slice of any fruit or veggies until she ate most of it. She gained weight back, and Dakota started to allow her to eat at the same dish, so it's been fine since then.
Try that for a while and see if it works.

I'm praying for her. Keep us updated!

Just got off the phone with Cindy(Hollysmom) and she was very reassuring! I'm going to be getting up every 2 hours to make her eat and to check on her. I'm also going to go and get some chicken baby food and mix her up some glideraid. She's is doing a little better...she's out of her pouch and following her brother around. He must know she doesn't feel good because he keeps licking her. Wish me luck that she keeps perking up.

April - I tried to call you. Hope you are getting some sleep and that she's doing better.

Anything I can tell you is probably too late. I would say, don't give her too much all at once. Make her eat small amounts frequently, rather than all she wants all at once.

Let us know!

One thing you can do with the PP diet, blend all your fruits, veggies and the yogurt together in the blender, than add it to it. Then when you feed it put a couple of her favorite fruits/veggies on the top. I do this and found it works great! Praying this little on is ok. Post an update when you can!

Hey, I just spoke with April.

She separated Pogo and her brother, and Pogo seems to be doing much better. Poor little thing actually fell asleep in her glider kitchen last night!

April was wondering about food she could leave in the cage all day? Any suggestions?

She is also going to go get some wax worms ...

Happy glider, Brisky's and Zookeepers are the only ones I know of for gliders. I don't feed that stuff so not sure which she may eat.

I don't have any dry food because I've never feed it...so I think I'm just going to change the PP mix out several times and just leave that in her cage.

Like Alden said though, I woke up at 10:30 and her and her brother weren't in their pouch...I found them sleeping next to their food bowl in the glider kitchen. After I woke her up she started eating. So I'm going to be waking her up every 2 hours to get her to eat.

Thanks EVERYONE for helping me through this!!! hug2 hug2 hug2

Just an observation -- I may be late in stating this, or you may already be doing this -- do you add a multi-vitamin/multi-mineral suppliment to their food at all?

She needs to get in all her nutrients and I'm not trying to be a jerk here. I'm just looking out for you and her. You didn't mention it, and I can't assume you do or don't give it.

Yes...I feed the multivitamin...it gets sprinkled all the fruits and veggies. And you're not a jerk...it never hurts to ask wink I'm going to be trying a different diet here in the next week to see if that makes a difference. Some of my gliders are just too small for my liking!!!

Just woke her up and she ate some avocado and Priscilla diet mixture. She's definitely feeling much better because after she ate she wanted to play. I didn't let her play long...she's still weak so I put her back to bed.

April, one thing that may help is to put her in a much smaller cage for now. That way she isn't having to climb to get in her pouch or get to the food from her pouch, etc...If you don't have a smaller cage, hang the pouch as low as you can and keep everything on the floor, then put lots of hammocks, in case she falls.

I thought about moving her to a smaller cage, but the only small cage I have isn't suitable for 2 gliders and I didn't want to separate her and her brother. He's moral support and won't leave her side, plus he helps keep her warm in the pouch since she is so small and gets cold easily.

I already moved the pouch to the lower half of the cage...just forgot to mention it. I don't want her to burn energy trying to get to her pouch. The hammock idea is good too...I'll have to do that, at least until she's stronger.

I need to go and get a digital scale still to see how much she weighs.

Also, I fed her again and she's eating GREAT!!! At this rate she should be better in no time smile

It's not Hind Leg Paralysis. At first I thought so, but then I realized she was weak all over...not just her back legs. She's doing much better since I first found her and I've been getting her up every 2 hours to eat. She was starving!!!

Also, just thought I'd let you know HLP is caused by a calcium deficiency and needs to be treated by a vet.

The avocado is a good choice, April. Good source of fat - and also has potassium and other nutrients. Things like that, and also protein should get her strong in no time.

April best wishes with your baby, I am glad that you figured it out quickly and hope to see some happy updates on her real soon.
She's staying in our thoughts and prayers, and you try not to get too run down thru this.

I'm so sorry for you and your baby. frown
I'm so happy you found out soon enough, and things are getting better! smile

Did you ever get her to the vet, or are you satisfied with your treatment?? Just wondering if there can be an underlying problem??

You have all my good thoughts and good wishes for the evening! heart
