One of our gliders got hung up today panicked and started jumping and screaming and before we could get her cage open she ripped half of her tail off. we got the bleeding stopped (she barely bled ) and she is acting fine still playing and eating but what can we safely use to prevent infection and help with pain that is safe for her. There is nothing sticking out from the end and any advice would be welcome. We also need to know a vet near van wert ohio that can help. Thanks!

Hi,

Sorry your glider got hurt. The big thing before you get her to a vet is to make sure she doesn't chew on it and make it worse. If there is no bone sticking out, it will just be a matter of some antibiotics for infection and let it heal.

The list of Veterinarians in Ohio just click on the blue text.

Ok we took her to the vet and they are saying where we cleaned it last night then folded the skin over then put neosporin on it periodically that her tail is already starting to heal. So with that being the case they did a medical scrub of the area and put her on honey flavored antibiotics and pain meds saying she should have a full recovery.

Thankfully you had an easy tail injury, I have had three tail amputations and one that we are trying to save the tail on (it is up close to his butt). None of them were easy. But I am loving my new veterinarian.

Wow, glad the little one is okay. Can you tell me-so I can catch an issue early, where or what the tail was caught on/in?

She got her tail stuck between the water bottle and the cage when she had her tail stuck out through the cage and happened to catch it just right when she jumped towards the bottom of the cage.

She is doing fine and was even able to be put in with ducky so they now have a cage mate. Also our boy petrie just got fixed today and has been talking to the girls a lot this past week since he is seeing them play so we are going to do some introducing this weekend in the play tent and if all goes well he will be moving in with his roomates.
