I have few suggies. 3 of which do not get along because we have a breeding female. I had had one of my suggies perched on my shoulder when my other male suggie jumped on his back and latched on to my suggies neck, causing a pea-sized hole. I believe it is infected because there is an odor coming from it. What can I do safely so he can heal?

If it smells you need to get to the vet ASAP. It will need to be flushed out and the glider will need to be on antibiotics.

If the vet wants to flush it and stitch is shut don't let them as a pocket of puss will form. Those kind of wounds need to be left open and heal from the inside out.

Please take a moment to register so you can have full use of the board.

This post will be moved to the Health & Hygiene Subforum.

Feather has given you good advice, especially about taking your glider to the vet as soon as possible. This is extremely important for the recovery of your glider.

Please register so you can post beyond this area of the board. I am now moving your post to our Health & Hygiene Forum.

We look forward to updates on your sweet little one.
