get a second and 3 rd opinion!

I picked up meds for a glider and the vet said to give her 1/2 a cc of one of the meds. I knew this was wrong and told him so. He insisted it was right and IF I felt more comfortable I could give 1/4 th cc instead. I called a friend who put in a vet call and then called 2 others for input. My glider is now getting .02 cc of this med. OMG I am so glad I have friends in the community who know when I am in panic mode and they are quick to get me the help and answers I need.

This vet does not see gliders only cats, dogs and cattle. I told him who it was for and how much she weighs. This is a last ditch effort to treat a glider my other vets says nothing is wrong with. I know there is something tho. I now have a white glider that is oily and yellow, eats a lot but seems to fail to thrive. I know my gliders and this one is sick. Blood was taken, stools were run and nothing showed up so I am shot gunning treatment. Please pray for my glider she looks like death warmed over and If this does not help I fear I will lose her.

Will any of your vets do phone consults with the experienced glider vets? I'm so sorry! I know how worried you must be! Thank goodness you stuck to your guns and did not give her the wrong dose!

i would run a fecal culture and sensitivity not just a fecal test. the yellow is from marking by another glider.

For the record I have 5 vets. only one does not treat my gliders. 3 are over an hour away (one of whom did blood work and fecals 2 weeks ago and is the one I would have seen but he is closed wed after 12) I just walked in to my large animal vets office and told him what I wanted. He never saw the glider she was at home. SO he gave me what I asked for (for the most part). I had asked for flagyl but he said at this time it is only treating 70% of giardia(sp) cases so he gave me something I have never used. This was the med I knew the amount was wrong on. I talked to someone here on GC that has used the med before and got the other vet to confirm dose for my girl. I did sub q her yesterday and today when I went to give her morning med #2 she was nice and warm and her face looks better. I find doing the sub q mid day doesn't interfere with her eating at night but if I sub q late she wont eat well. Crazy kids.... and "09" years vet bills total over 4 grand just for the gliders. So don't think I am not trying. I really am and have no problem going to different vets.

Naaah that is what hubby is for he supports my bad habits (I don't drink or smoke i do gliders) smile. Although I cleaned my room and there is glider stuff in every nook and cranny. I also have to clean the glider cabinet out. Every time I open the door stuff falls on me.

Good news though. I gave Stormy her morning meds today and she looks better. She groomed herself. I am thrilled for that. Not sure if it is the sub q, anti biotic,or parasite med but something is working.

Stormy had liver and gallbladder problems that were slowly killing her. She was helped to the bridge today.

2 gliders gone in a week not much I can say but god I am hurting and miss them.
