The girls are way overdue for a vet check up.

A few weeks ago, I noticed Dot's pouch has some discoloration. Should I be concerned? In direct light, I could see tiny crystal like salt reflection in the fur around her pouch.

This is Fiona, I checked her belly too, and she has no discoloration, but this pic is for cuteness only... She knew I was about to do something to her...

They have never had joeys, and I have never tried to look in their pouch.

My concern about Dot is to make sure vet checks/tests everything.

I figure a swab of pouch? Along with normal annual fecal/urine/smear tests? Is there something I need to know or the vets needs to know/ look for?

I would appreciate a non candy coat version of your opinion please. The good, bad and ugly. Please prepare me ohwell

Pouch looks good and normal to me. As gliders mature, they will get some discoloration like this. If you notice a behavior change, any discharge or smell coming from the pouch, that's a different story. But these pics aren't alarming to me.

Whew! So glad to hear it doesn't look abnormal. I never noticed my girls pouches looking any particular way that wasn't what I've always seen, so, I couldn't have told you anything about it.

Quick update:

Went for a wellness check today for both of them. Did a urine and fecal, weights checked and so on. Checked both their pouches too.

Everything went well, They both had a great check up. pouches are fine, no lumps, bumps, or smells.

But Dot needs to loose a bit of weight. I'm thinking of no mealies, and taking the corn out of their CL salad.


Still very happy with the vet visit! :hdance:

So, in this pic her moobs are covered, but when I was trying to get a pic of her pouch, I had to take this pic...

https://www.dropbox.com/s/zgf9x6hr5tevuhx/20171031_070520.jpg?dl=0

137gr of fluff!!!! Now I'm trying to hold her and take a pic by myself, it didn't happen... She is a bit squished in pic, so her fluffy really shows here... But she definitely has moobs!!!!!

Doc says she needs the 20gr to go away...

Lol! But wouldn't it be fun to run(yeah right! Lol!) as fast as you can and then hang on for the ride like they do? At my age, I'd get dizzy, fall off, and probably have a heart attack!!! Lol!

I need to lose 20+ too so, maybe Dot and I both can work on this together... Be each other's support team... Or, be each other's enabler!!! Lol!!!
