I need some quick help here, please. Laredo is sick and I need to get him to the vet ASAP. He is showing signs of dehydration and although I have syringes-( I'm diabetic ), I have no idea what I can use to properly hydrate him and I'm certain that I don't know what else to use. I noticed that he's been a little off his normal routine in the last day or two, but not until tonight did he appear lethargic, cold to the touch, and showing the "tenting" of dehydration. He's been eating a little less than normal the past day or two as well, but I've watched him eat and drink some. I will have to wait until morning to reach a vet in a town about an hour from here. I'm in a VERY small community with only the local large animal vet, whose totally unfamiliar with gliders. Any chance of my being able to get something for the dehydration from somewhere at this time of the morning? I know timing is vitally important and I will do my best to get him to the vet first thing in the AM, but I want to help him now. He's somewhat alert, but definitely NOT his normal active self! Judie, Karin, Sheila, or anyone logged on with suggestions, HELP PLEASE!!

One of my current rescues was also extremely dehydrated, luckily that was the only thing wrong with him. Give him some fluids if you can't get to a vet, pedialyte being the top choice. If not Gliderade, water, water with some honey in it, or appple juice are all things to try. I would try Pedialyte and then pure apple juice, after he drinks some water down the apple juice. That's all that I really know, I wish that I could be of more help! Good luck and keep us updated!! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

I did a quick search, from what I found you need to give him something sweet immediately!

This is the information that I found:
</font><blockquote><font class="small">Quote:</font><hr />
Take notice that your glider is active, sugar gliders are known to become very lethargic when their sugar intake is below normal. This happens more often when a glider is exposed to stressful conditions. If your glider shows signs of lethargy try to get some ‘Gliderade’ and or honey into him. Consult the breeder if possible and keep
it warm and quiet. Most gliders come out of this state in a matter of a day or so if they get some carbohydrates into their system.

<hr /></blockquote><font class="post">

From CV Exotics:
</font><blockquote><font class="small">Quote:</font><hr />
IF THE GLIDER EVER BECOMES LETHARGIC THE CAUSE COULD BE LOW BLOOD SUGAR. IMMEDIATELY ADMINISTER SOMETHING SWEET SUCH AS FRUIT NECTAR AND PEDIALYTE WITH AN EYE DROPPER, HONEY OR NUTRI-CAL (YOU CAN GET THIS FROM MOST PET STORES).

Thanks for replying Linda! I knew I didn't have any Pedialyte on hand, but I always have apple juice, so I concurred with your recommendation and gave him 6/10 cc of apple juice. ( I used a 3/10 cc insulin syringe with the needle removed ) He was no longer cold to the touch thankfully, as I rousted him from his warm seclusion with Kira in their nest-box. He didn't appreciate being bothered though and gave me a little nip to make his point! He did take the first syringe full of apple juice quite readily though and the second one required just a bit of coaxing. He didn't seem to want more now, but I will keep giving him periodic repeat doses of the apple juice and see if I can get some Pedialyte for him first thing in the morning. He may simply be hypoglycemic and I'm so glad that you pointed that out as a possibility. It should have been obvious to me as a diabetic, but I didn't even think about that as a possibility for a glider! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> I am quite familiar with hypoglycemia in people-( as my son and I are both Type 1 diabetics and often have to treat our own bouts with hypoglycemia ), but I didn't realize it was that prevalent with gliders too. Ironic to be diabetic and not have a clue about something like this, but again, I thank you kindly for posting this information. He's a little more alert and responsive than he was earlier-( and I actually appreciated the nip which reassured me somewhat ) I will post again later this morning with an update and whether a holiday vet visit will be necessary for him. Hypoglycemia would actually be a blessing in disguise, as I had a myriad of numerous more intense maladies running through my mind! Thanks again and I'm logging off to tend to Laredo! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Jeff, sorry did not see your post last night. D5w is the best sub q fluids to give. Will help keep his sugar level in his system if he is not eating. If severly dehydrated you can give him 3-4cc. every four to six hours till he is eating on his own.

Suggest vet care as usually glider is suffering from a bacterial or protozoan illness that is causing dehydration.

Good Luck.

[:"green"]Laredo is acting better this morning and I've just returned from the store with Ensure High Calcium, Pedialyte, and Hawaiian Delight baby food for him. Thanks to everyone for responding..Linda, Robin, Karin, Toni, Judie, and John-(Rowdy Glider) for your help! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yelclap.gif" alt="" /> John called the vets to find that they are all too preoccupied with their holiday plans to find a glider worthy of their precious time-( I think I once alluded to this fact in a previous posting with Karin ) They can't be bothered unless it means a considerable monetary windfall for them-i.e.-sick elephant, race horse, Mayor's dog, etc., but not a glider! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shakehead.gif" alt="" /> Taylorville closed, said to call Springfield-( no exotic vets listed in Spfld ); Decatur exotic vet not on call, come in tomorrow, Champaign vets are probably on call for emergencies-( U of I vet school ), but are located about three hours away from me! Since he's eating a grape, his ears have perked up, and he's not looking listless or lethargic, I'm going to offer him the Ensure High Calcium, some Pedialyte, and whatever he's willing to consume. I will keep a VERY close eye on him and update everyone as I can.[/][:"red"] Thanks Judie for the D5W recommendation--any idea where I might be able to get this considering the vets are all too preoccupied today?[/][:"green"] I'll be back in a few to check the board, need to go and tend to Laredo. By the way, Kira is fine and keeping him company in the nest-box. No stresses that I can think of....in fact, it's rather quiet as the kids went with their Mom for weekend visitation..unless Laredo prefers the normal mayhem and is upset by the lack of commotion and noise?[/] <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

Hi, Pouch Potato -- is there a chance the vet clinic in your small town could see Laredo, even if they aren't glider-saavy? People like Judie and Ellen could talk to the vet about possible problems and care, and any vet should be able to do a fecal smear and float to look for parasites.

When a glider gets sick or dehydrated, one of the principal concerns is the loss of calcium. It appears that they lose the ability to hold onto calcium quickly in these situations. At least that's been the experience of many of us here.

I will pray for Laredo, and hope that things improve soon and that you can find a vet able to help to day if possible.

Jeff...call an Emerg Clinic. They should have a bag of it on hand. It is a 1000 ml size but you can keep it in the frig for a year or so. I usually throw out mine after that and purchase a new bag. Cost is about $12.

Have you tried calling every vet listed in the phone book? It does not need to be a vet who is knowledgeable with exotics just one who is willing. Bacterial and Protozoan problems that we find in gliders are often seen smaller animals. Right now you just need a vet who is able to at least run the standard tests which they do all the time with dog and cats, rabbits and rats. When it comes to meds and ratios...we here on Glider Central can link you with a vet who will do a consultation over the phone if need be.

Jeff's area is my old "stomping grounds". From my reconing, there are no vets in Nokomis, and the ones in Taylorville wouldn't know a glider from an elephant. They are the ones that said to go to Springfield. If Springfield were the only choice, Jeff would be beter off coming to me, then we could continue on to Champaign, where my usual vet, and the best e-vet are located.

Jeff, if "The Medicine Shoppe" is open, they might have the D5W. That would be the only place I can think of, besides T'ville hospital or maybe one of the drug stores in T'ville. If you end up going to T'ville tomorrow, the Northside Clinic is up north of the new bowling alley, on Webster street.

That seems to be our only course of action right now. Jeff is contacting them to see about that.

On a sad note......the Emergency vet in Springfield said all they could do if we brought him in was to euthanize him. I told them to forget it, and went on to another vet.

BTW...I was wrong...there is a vet in Nokomis, but he mostly sees horses and the like. He should have no problem with a phone consultation, provided he isn't too picky about his "patients", and is willing to see something new.

[:"green"]Well, I took your advice Lucy and called to see if the local vet would both sell me some D5W and consult with someone over the telephone for treating Laredo. No answer, and non-functioning answering machine leaving horrific loud pitched noises only. I will have to wait until they open in the morning and have both a fecal float and smear done and anything else they can do to ascertain the underlying problem-i.e.-phone consult with someone here, run other tests, etc.

Thanks to Judie and Carrie for the great suggestion of the clinic or hospitals! It's a good idea! Only one problem with living in the boonies, as for purchasing some D5W, we have no hospital or emergency clinic in the area, just the nursing home and two local small town pharmacies-(both closed with no after hours number). The nursing home uses D5W, but said "NO WAY!!" and explained that it is against regulations to so much as hand out an aspirin or Tylenol! I figured as much, but thought I would ask them nicely, never the less. Also tried the ambulance service here, as I know they keep some on hand, but got a non-emergency answering machine. I didn't bother to leave a message on there, as the last time I was in dire need of something, it was 3-4 days before they called me back! They told me to call 9-1-1 if it's of dire importance and I don't think they would consider this as such-(although it is to us!)

So, it looks like I have only one option left and that is to do the best I can with what I have here. I'll keep offering him the Ensure and Pedialyte, orally by syringe, fruit, baby food, & BML if he'll take it, and keep him warm and comfy until early tomorrow morning. John and I concur with our disgust at the horrifying and insensitive option offered by the one un-named clinic in Springfield! I will refrain from sharing our precise colorfully worded commentary! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif" alt="" />

If anyone has any alternative options or suggestions, please feel free to share them and I'll be back later to check the board. Thanks to everyone and I'll keep you updated![/]
<img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

Sorry Carrie...didn't see your question until after I posted this...it's 240 miles away.

[:"green"]Sorry about the delay in updating! All is well at the moment and Laredo and Kira have been given Flagyll as a precautionary measure, despite the negative finding for any "unwanted little buggers" showing up in fecal flotation. Laredo was given 2cc of Lactated Ringer's with a B complex vitamin additive. Another dose of Flagyll for both will be given tomorrow and I have a 1,000 mL bag of Lactated Ringer's and several syringes for additional sub-q injections, should they be deemed necessary in the future. I expect to get fecal samples in the next day or two and return them for another testing to detect the presence of any unwanted visitors that may be "dislodged" by the Flagyll, should any be present.

It wasn't the vet in Decatur that I went to, but Animal Kingdom Pet Clinic in Taylorville, IL. Dr. Sloan is now practicing at that location and no longer affiliated with the vet in my town who wouldn't do the fecal tests and refused to see a glider! Dr. Sloan has a very competent technician who was extremely helpful and along with the gracious and professional assistance of Dr. Ross and Ellen via telephone, things are looking much brighter for my fuzzbutts! Ellen and Bruce are WONDERFUL, KNOWLEDGEABLE, CARING, AND GIVING people whom I cannot thank adequately with simple words! I thank everyone who has shown immense concern, prayers, and thoughtful advice! This truly is a great group of folks! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yelclap.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" /> (Whispers to self..."and thank God some of them don't hold grudges for past indiscretions made by yours truly!") Thanks again to all and I will update with progress reports or future findings as they unfold.

And now, despite the clutch cable going out and needing emergency road side replacement, the transmission also requiring emergency road side work just around the corner from the vet clinic-(clutch went out just around the corner upon our arrival to vet clinic), the many severe stress headaches, skipped meals-(by me and the gliders), my children wondering if I had run away from home, my overdrawn checking account, and whatever else my tired brain is leaving out....I'm content that I'm home safe and sound with Kira and Laredo on the road to recovery! (Now I need to eat a late supper and tend to children..human and glider!) <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />[/]

Weights up from initial onset of symptoms for both!
Laredo was down to 83.2 g on Saturday or Sunday-(I think..the days kind of ran together over the last few)-and Kira was down to 68.0 g. Now Laredo is up to 89.1 g and Kira is up to 72.1 g.

Jeff, Glad to hear Larado is OK. I was given the impression by Dr. Sloan that they wouldn't even see a glider, but then again, that was a few months ago. Maybe, just maybe, we can convince someone in the area to get interested enough in gliders for them to go and learn a thing or two to help us out when we need it. I would gladly drive the extra 15 miles to go to T'ville, instead of Champaign, if it meant I (read that WE) would get the help we need.

I know now isn't the time, but since the fecals came back clean, and I know that is not indictive of a clean gut, but have you checked the water bottle to be sure the ball wasn't stuck, it is uncommon for both gliders to show symptoms of dehydration and weight loss at the same time, not totally impossible just not common. Their bodies are mainly water, so the dehydration will cause the weight loss to seem so dramatic, also by giving them the fluids, it will also increase their weight dramatically as it has.

Good call Bourbon. If there doesn't seem to be a physical cause then the rule is you must look for a possible environmental cause. Also, if you have a water softener system ...it adds an enormous amount of sodium into the body thus causing dehydration. Do not feed your gliders water that has come from a softened system. It causes dehydration because inorder to compensate for the electrolyte imbalance the body will have the glider excrete the extra sodium via urine and in the process the glider loses water thus causing dehydration. Some bottled water has high sodium content and never use mineral water with your gliders or you may risk causing renal stones (caculi). My goal is to educate even if I am not being much help. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/littleglider.gif" alt="" />

[:"green"]Thanks Bourbon and Crittermom for the head's up, but I have both gliders in full view 24/7/365 and use two bottles simultaneously that I disassemble and clean every other night or two. I use anti-bac dish soap, bleach, and hot water, followed by a thorough rinse of hot water. The water I use is from the small city water department and is treated at a plant within a stone's throw from my home. I place (2) one gallon jugs of water in the refrigerator for a minimum of 48 hours prior to filling the gliders' bottles. I raise my own feeders, so I use the same practice with the gliders' feeder mice water bottle-(with one noticeable difference..I add a few drops vanilla to their H2O to reduce "mousy musk"). I researched bottled water a great deal and came to the conclusion-(perhaps erroneously <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" /> )-that our tap water here was likely MUCH safer than most bottled water, with the added precaution of allowing it to remain in fridge for the above referenced 2 days. Perhaps I need to do some further research and revisit the possibility of bottled vs. tap. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/question.gif" alt="" />

As for the weight loss, Kira has been light for the 19 mths. I've had her with me-(I was her 4th owner in her first ~14 mths. of life). She originally came from a member of this board who took her in as a rescue and then sold her to a college student, who then sold her to me with her mate, Winnie, who passed away Memorial Day of 2002. Kira's heaviest weight to date has been 72 grams-(taken quite a while ago), so the 68 wasn't drastically different and she wasn't showing outward signs like Laredo. She's also an alpha female whose never produced any joeys, despite Laredo's valiant efforts every 29 days! I'm thinking she's either eating them en route to marsupium or is infertile. Perhaps she's always been lightweight with infertility linked as result of prior diets or ???

Laredo's the one whose weight loss, lethargy, and dehydration showed dramatically and suddenly. Kira's treatment came primarily as a precautionary measure and due to her being Laredo's mate-(although she would prefer the label of "boss")! She wasn't "tenting" much, but as she too has shown a loss of appetite and did "tent" a little, it was determined that a couple of sub-q injections for her were in order as well as for Laredo.[/]


[:"red"]Current Update:[/][:"green"] They both have eaten about a tablespoon of blueberry yogurt, a little watermelon, and a little of the Ensure/Pedialyte mix collectively today. I took the Ensure/Pedialyte mix & watermelon away earlier this morning and gave the yogurt midday. I placed their BML in the cage about 9:15PM CST and they've yet to touch it. I plan to add a very small amount of fruit & veggies later, but would prefer they eat the BML first!

I picked up 5 more days worth of Flagyl (Metronidazole) from the vet tonight and will hope, despite initial negative flotation results, any unwanted visitors playing "invisibility" games will be eliminated, if present.[/]


[:"purple"]Thanks again to all for your support and prayers![/]
