My household has recently grown concerned with our female glider and think she may be pregnant?

She's been housed with the same male for her entire life, who was thought to be fixed. (That is what we were told by The Pet Glider when we got our suggies nearly two years ago, and he has never had any bald patches that I have been aware of.)

But we've noticed she is eating much more than usual and her abdomen has recently gotten bigger. Is it possible the male was in fact not neutered and our female had joeys without us noticing?

Our male hasn't put on any weight, and as previously mentioned, only the female's pouch area has seemed to gotten bigger. There's been no changes in her behavior other than the fact she's consuming more food. The female has never had any health issues and seems to be quite healthy rather than the sudden issue with her abdomen, so this is really troubling to the family.

I've scoured the web looking for answers with no luck, so any insight you may have will help greatly!

We plan on calling the breeders we got them from first thing tomorrow as it's currently rather late in the night.

If he has no bald spot I would say he is neutered. Plus, you would have had joeys before this.

Your female is older and that plus it is winter she is just putting weight on.

If your concerned about her weight gain, then take her to the vet.
