Ouchy. frown

You have to stop him from messing with it. He will only make it worse.

I would love to see the video. You can email it to me at- ericswife0216@yahoo.com



I would also be interested in seeing that link to the thread if you can find it.


I just hate seeing my baby in so much pain and not feeling well. I wish it would hurry up and be 8am so I can get him to the vets so he can start feeling better. I feel like he is one of my kids. I just want to take all of his pain away. I feel so helpless. frown

I keep trying but nothing seems to be working. I'm on bite #3 now on my fingers from trying to stop him. I know he doesn't mean it. I try to keep thinking that as he's sinking his teeth into me but that doesn't make the bites any less painful!

Is vasaline okay to use on them? I was wondering if that would help the urine not to sting so much when he pees. It seems like the ky jelly just washes right off each time.

Nope, my vet told me no Vaseline. Just re-apply the KY each time.

Just talking to me has helped a lot. I really appreciate it!
I'm trying to stay calm I'm sure if I wasn't able to talk to someone I'd be about to lose my mind right now.

Oh, the emergency vet I spoke with did say adding a little sugar to the ky jelly will help with the inflamation but she said the only thing she would be concerned about with using the sugar is that it may make him lick it even more.
I've never heard of using sugar for inflamation have you? I'm not going to use it but I just thought that sounded odd.

I just remembered my vet mentioning and looking to see if Muchu had a penis prolapse. That is also a possibility.

I have read about it, but have not used it myself. The KY should be fine till you get to the vet.

You may want to read up on several things as you are not going to your regular vet.

UTI/urinalysis
Crystals and nerve damage
Prolapsed penis
PH levels - A normal Ph level for sugar gliders should be around 5-7

Brandi, do you have a bottle of soda? You can cut the top off and pad the edges and it will make a MacGyver E-Collar. It's not the best, but temporarially it will work to help him out.

I just went through penis issues with my Ryan and they are no fun. You need to make sure that he stays lubed up with the KY. If he starts to dry out you could be facing an amputation issue. Plus it will help to cool and soothe his tissues. He definately needs to get into the vets office and will need pain medication and an antibiotic.

I don't have any bottled soda just cans. Now I wished I used the bottled ones. frown
The only other thing I could think of that might work would be one of my kid's book covers. It's one of the soft covers so it's flexible. Do you think that would work? I think my kids would understand why mommy cut up their book.
I just don't have anything to cover the edges so it wont hurt him. I thought I had some duct tape but I was wrong. All I have is the stuff that sticks to itself. It doesn't actually have any glue on it.

Now he is trying to attack me when I try to put the ky jelly on him. It's also looking more swollen and getting redder.

The book cover didn't work. It was too flexible and he just bent it to get to his penis.

All he wants to do is go in my shirt and sit there messing with it and fussing. frown

Brandi, is there no way you can take him in? I am scared that it would become necrotic or even that he will hurt himself. He can cause a lot of damage in seconds.

I'm calling the vet in about 45min to see if they are in their office yet. They open at 8am (in an hour and 20 minutes) but I am guessing they should be in the office before that. I hope they are.

If I don't get anyone when I call in 45 minutes then I may just load him up and go sit by there door and wait for them.

Brandi, can you wrap him in fleece, to prevent him messing with it? I know it's early morning hours and he is most probably very active and alert, but maybe he will allow you to wrap him and comfort him.

Well, I just tried to call and I got a recording saying they don't open until 8:30am. They changed their times! Now I have to wait another hour until they open! They didn't even update their website with their new hours! frown

Brandi, I'm sorry your little fella is going through this. Do you have a plastic lid (one from a yogurt container, or butter dish) cut a hole in the center, pad it with fleece, and slip it over his head.

My prayers are with you and your little guy. hug2
