What is going on?????????? #157820

One of my pairs hasn't been eating much and has been spending a lot of time in the pouch. I thought maybe they were mating or something like that so I didn't put much thought into it. Well, tonight I got them out and put them right next to the food and they started eating. I noticed that the girl had licked a spot hairless and maybe even a little raw down by her pouch. The boy climbed down the cage a little and then I noticed his belly has no hair on it and it looks like his pom is missing some hair. These gliders have done very well since I got them and none of my gliders have been sick to this point. Can someone please tell me what is going on and how to fix it.

Thank you

I'm not sure what is going on, but I would recommend a vet visit for them both. Sorry I can't be of more help.

All that you are describing sounds like illness of some sort. I would see a vet and have them do an exam on the female's pouch, as well as urinalysis on both. Any change in behavior/look warrants a vet consult. Please keep us posted.

The way you describe this reminds me of a glider named Firefly. I would have a vet visit ASAP. This glider's case was extreme, but it didn't start out as bad as it looks at the point when the pic was taken.

Here is the thread (with pics) on Firefly. If it sounds/looks ANYthing at all like this case, please take the information and get your babies into the vet. worried

Firefly was my baby and I just FINALLY got the necropsy result back. t turns out he was septic, stemming from a drug-resistant staph infection. They din't know why he got it, speculation was perhaps a depressed immune system, but they had him on an oral antibiotic and a topical one, neither of which did any good. Maybe ask about a culture and sensitivity? Also, his brother Rocket now has smethiung going on. I had him at the vet tonight with what looked like a seizure and she gave me Trimethoprim. She said that this is a med used for staph infections and is one of very few antibiotics that penetrates the blood/brain barrier and can help with possible nervous system infections. Please go to the vet ASAP!! What I went through with Firefly was horrible, hopefully this imformation can give you something to go on or at least ask about! Please feel free to pm me if you have any questions/comments!

Oh Devin, I am so sorry. You might want to get a necropsy done in case that have something that was contagous to your other gliders.

Devin, I'm so very sorry to see this frown I know how much you love them. HUGS

I tried to read about Firefly but most of the threads don't work anymore. I don't understand what's going on and what happened to Firefly or Devin's babies. Is this an infection from something or SM?

I am terribly sorry that you lost your babies. I think everyone here knows how heartbreaking that is.

I wanted to ask about Rocket. Could you please descibe the symptoms he has with the seizures? The reason I ask is, we took in a little boy we named Cowboy about a year ago, who had what we feel is a seizure not 5 minutes after his owner left him with us. He was shaking horrible, had his mouth clamped down tight, and actually became to salivate and drool. We thought it may be diet related as he had not been on a good diet for his 7 years of life. We gave him some honey on our finger and within a couple of minutes he came out of it. Now I will be honest, I couldn't tell you if he came out of it due to the honey, or the seizure was simply over.

We put him with a female, and he was fine for 6 months, until in a 3 day period, he suddenly had 2 more seizures. We have yet to figure out the cause. He was being fed a good diet, the vet said he looked totally healthy, and he was living a stress-free life with his new female Sassy.

If you are able to find any information on what could cause seizures, or medications to help, please let us know. So far, the answers to this have elluded us!
