a little over a month ago my gagey passed away, the vet had no clue what made him sick or why he died, he was examined countless times, before he died he rapidly went blined and his neck was stuck in this upwards position, he wouldent stop jumping everywhere, but couldent control his movements, he would often tumble over on his back, he passed away quickely after this happened, it was painful but i thought the nightmare was over, but last night my little pandi came down with the exact symptoms, by the time i got her to the vet she was allready blind, the vet had no clue as to what was wrong with her and just put her on pain meds, a few hours later she passed away as well, now just a second ago Deigo has come down with the same symptoms! i gave him some of the left over pain meds that pandi had but im stumped as to what is killing my babies! it must be contagious if they are all getting it, and my vet has no clue how to help me! can someone help my save my diego before its to late for him as well, i just dunno what to do!!!

Oh my...I am so sorry! I hope someone with more experience can help you! Apollo my sons glider lost the use of his front hands, we found out it was a toy from burger king that we had put in the cage and got it out, he has gotten better but not complete use of his hands back. Is there anyway you can take him out of the cage an totally disinfect everything?

hug2 I am so sorry to hear about this tragedy!
Have you tried making a check list?
1. Cleaning Products
2. Plants
3. Carbon Monoxide
4. Pesticides
5. Type of foods:
a. fruits
b. veggies
c. Bugs (mealies, crickets, etc..) fresh, or canned
6. toys - anything that could have toxins - coated wood,
certain plastics, pine, cedar
7. Bedding for drop pan

I hope that some of this will help. Many hugs and prayers.
Godspeed sweet babies.... gangel

I wish I could tell you. I am praying they can find an answer. I cannot imagine the pain you must be in. Loads of prayers going out.

i feed them equate, and the veggies and fruits are allways the frozen stuff in bags, i also give them the pet store glider pellets on the side and crickets from the pet store as well, as for toys, everything is fleece except for their stealth wheels, some cat balls and a plastic ferrit tube that they like to play in...i cant think of any toxins that they may have been exposed to....denise for now is okay, should i get her outta the cage before this happens to her too? could it mabye be a parasite of some kind?

I had purchased a bag of cat food for my cat last year, and noticed that it had a strange smell. I brought it in to the vet, when they analyzed it they found that it was contaminated with mold.

Not sure if this would the case here with your glider food, but I would certainly have it checked along with the crickets.

I am so sorry Stef, I pray that Diego will be alright. hug2

A necropsy is where they will examine and run tests on all the organs to try and determine the cause of death.

Have you thought about having the glider pellet food and the crickets checked.

A necropsy is basically an autopsy on an animal to try to find out what caused it to die. I am surprised where it came on like it did, he did not suggest having it done. I hope Diego will be ok and that Denise does not come down with whatever it is.

Oh Stef, I am so sorry. Please keep his body in the fridge (I know that sounds awful, but it will preserve the body) and get him to the vets asap and have them look to see what is going on. Praying Denise does not have whatever the other three did!!

So sorry for your loss. I dont know if the body needs to be refrigerated until you can get it to your vet but maybe someone with that kind of experience will come on.

I am pretty sure refrigeration is required to have the necropsy, not frozen good luck, and some one correct me if wrong ..
