My little princess is sick cry I brought Lidia home about a week ago and all seemed fine with her except this weird bald spot on her belly. She was eating great and acting perfectly normal. Last night I checked on her and she looked to have some swelling around her cloaca and she looked wet/ungroomed. I continued to watch her and noticed that she was grooming the area a lot and hissing. I stayed up all night keeping an eye on her to make sure she didn't SM. I wasn't sure what could have been wrong but I knew it was something. As soon as the vet opened this morning I rushed her in. She had diarhea right away and I had it rushed in for a fecal. The fecal showed that she had parasites. Forgive for not knowing what the classification is called, it started with an A and she said it was in the same family as hookworms and coccdia, so not good. I asked her to tell me exactly what it was, but she said it was just a class not an exact parasite. . .something like that. So I have her on two different meds in hopes that it clears up. She goes back on Monday for a checkup and on Wednesday I have a home visit and my vet will be checking on her then too. I feel so bad for my baby, you can just tell she is miserable. I had to seperate her from her mate Tokyo and completely sanitize everything today. My vet said that Tokyo should be in the clear since they have only been together for a week because this parasite takes longer than that to pass on, but I will be watching him closely. Please pray that my baby girl makes it through this with a quick recovery.

i am so sorry that you both are going thru this.
but, i would get tokyo into the vet, also. you have no idea as to how long she's been sick. they hide it real well, until they can't anymore, because in the wild, the sick ones are killed. so, he may be sick also.
please do make sure that they are getting more stuff to drink because they can dehydrate real fast.
just sit back, relax, & close your eyes, & empty your thoughts,& BREATH. breath from deep within, so this way you can get calm. one of the most loving persons i have delt w/here, told me to do that, so i am telling you too, also.
i know you have got to be [censored] out, as i was, but if you stay that way, your babies will know that, & the healing time will drag longer.
she could loose some weight, to, on the meds, some do.
i know you will do a good job, you're already proving it now.

Thanks guys!

Josefine, I assure you that I am doing everything as instructed by my vet. I do have experience with gliders and know how well they can hide an illness. Tokyo has only been with Lidia for one week, I know that for a fact and my vet said that should not have been enough time for him to get anything from her, BUT he is on close watch and my vet will see him on Monday and on Wednesday along with Lidia. I am upset that my baby is sick but I am not [censored] out, right now I just need well wishes for my baby.

Good news though. Seems like the meds are starting to take affect already. Lidia is looking a lot better and she had a solid stool just a bit ago.

Lidia didn't eat anything last night confused I have her meds to her along with a little pedialyte this morning and I will be going to get some ensure after work. I weighed her and she hasn't lost any weight yet, so that's a releif. I just wish she would eat, it would make me feel so much better.

so sorry your baby is sick. I hope she will be okay. I want to stress for any newbies reading this that this is a reason why we alway stress to quarantine. Some illness takes a while to show up.

I got her to take about 1cc of ensure but she still has diarhea. The vet said the diarhea is actually good though because it means that her body is trying to push the parasites out.

She's still doing just okay. I got her to take 2 more cc's of ensure and I gave her a bath because she was really nasty and it made her perk up a lot. She's out in the cage now but doesn't seem interested in her food. She's still hissing when she poops and seems to be very tender down there.

Little bit of an improvement, Lidia was drinking out of her water bottle tonight. It doesn't seem like much but I didn't think she was eating or drinking anything so I was really excited to see her drinking out of it. Now I at least know that she's getting ensure and water/pediatlyte.
