You can also use just plain old flour to stop bleeding. Or your pet store may have something called Quick Stop (I think that's what it's called) that is designed for nail trimming oopsies.

Update!
<img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" />Things are going very well for Special "K". I think we got the nail thing down. Thanks for all the advice! (We are checking his nails weekly) <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/party.gif" alt="" /> Special "K" finally had his big day! We moved him into the glider room Saturday! I must say I'm amazed at how much more active he is just being in with the rest of the kids. He is moving around very well and seems to be eating more. The two bald spots behind his eyes have filled in and his fur is now very soft. I have to share a funny little thing he started doing. "K" likes having things he can hide in or behind in his cage.....So we put the top half of one of the many monkey barrels we have lieing around in his cage....he likes getting in the barrel and actually doing barrel rolls!! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/roflmao.gif" alt="" /> Its so funny to watch but I'm so happy to see that he's having fun! I'm hoping to have some new pics to share real soon!

Also, if you are worried about trimming, a wodent wheel is the best thing. It is an exercise wheel that has a kind of sand paper in it that will trim down the gliders nails while they run. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/multi.gif" alt="" />

Hello again everyone....it's been quite awhile since I last logged in. "K" is doing very well. What he lacks in mobility he makes up for in personality. In working with him I don't think he will ever gain back...what he's lost due to his past life (poor diet and lack of interaction with people) but he and I have developed a pretty good bond and I love him very much. I have to admit he gets spoiled with more treats than anyone else......I just can't resist that little face and paws popping up out of his pouch....he knows it too!!!) I just got a new camera for X-mas and plan on getting some new pics of him. Playtime....when he feels like it...ha ha ha..(he's stubborn and set in his ways) is always exciting! Although he doesn't glide..which I'm not real sure he has ever done....he is surprisingly fast when he runs around!!!(He amazes me every night. He plays with his rings....and is so determined to get them in his pouch. (all of our gliders do this) It takes "K" a few days but he does get them in there. Its so hard trying to explain all this. For those of you that have dealt with special needs gliders I think you know what I'm trying to say. It's great to read all the comments you all have posted. I must say we didn't do anything other then give a little love to another little kid that needed a home with someone to love him.

Thanks for the update, Ed! grin Been wondering how the little guy was doing-so glad to hear he's hanging in there and doing so well! Riker wasn't nearly so bad or long term with the HLP, but because he was growing, his legs aren't right and never will be...but he's a special and loving little 'floor glider' anyway! Looking forward to some pictures. smile

Here are a few new pics of "K" in the new cage Daddy built for Xmas! These were taken while "K: was exploring his new home for the first time! K's new cage is the smaller one on the left! The cage to the right is our families home!

Ed...I wanted to reply the other day, and didn't get a chance...he looks SO GOOD!!!! agree

His balding areas may not come back in with hair, since he was like that so long, but WOW!! LOOK at him hang from those back feet NOW!! He could barely move when you got him. Fantastic job Ed!! And even if he had to go to the Bridge tomorrow, I know he KNOWS he's loved and cared for. Way to go! hug2

Thanks! He's a real trooper. I really wish I would have got him in a bigger cage a little sooner. (No way I could take that risk) I am amazed at how much more active he is from just last week. I don't know if its just do to him marking his territory or he's happy to be able to move more openly. Over the wwekend I saw him do something I have never seen from him before! He jumped!!!! it was just a couple inches from the bottom of the cage to one of the sides but it was very exciting....and I am very proud of him!

K has been to a vet many times and has been living with his daddy who loves him very much. He's a very special glider who already has a very special family. smile

Hey Everyone!

Sorry it's been way to long since I logged in last. K is doing very well. We had a scary moment a little while back....K managed to get his foot tangles in a string from his pouch...(I still can't believe it) but after a trip to the vet all is well. We decided that a pouch was to much work for him so he now lives in tree stump stuffy that I picked up at Petsmart!!! He absolutely loves his new bed!!! In fact....he now has grown all his fur back!!! Wooohooo!

He is my special little buddy....I can't sneak into the room without him popping his head out of the tree for a treat. I think he eats more mealies and yogurt drops than all 5 of my other cages combined! ha ha ha!! I'll get some pictures together so you can all see what a handsome little guy he's become.
