Hi all. My husband and I own two sugar gliders, a male and a female. the first night we got them, the male somehow got stuck on their blanket. Seeing that they are over a year old, they were not bonded with us yet, so touching him was not gonna happen. He hissed at us ALOT. Well we figured he would get it unattached himself. Well he did, but there is still some attached to his underside. It has been about a month now. He doesnt hiss at us anymore, let's us pet him, but not hold him yet. The female on the other hand does.
I don't know what the fabric is attached to and if we should continue to be worried. We didn't know if we need to take him to a vet and let them remove it or not.
It is hard to see the piece of fabric in the photos because it is a little dark/blurry as the cage is the forefront of the photo making the glider the background. But, you can see it if you look really good. However, I can't tell how it is attached. It is somehow wrapped around his pom? If so, I would take him to the vet and let them remove the piece of blanket because trying to do it yourself probably isn't a good idea.
Took Brain to the vet. The fabric was wrapped around his pompom, but it wasn't cutting off any circulation. The vet was able to cut the fabric off without putting him to sleep, which is what worried me the most. Brain actually let the vet hold him and cut it off. He is a little bruised from it but the vet said he would be fine. I can now breath a little better. :-)
