THANK YOU!!

I just phoned the vet and he has put my mind at ease. He told me that originally he did have stitches and he put the collar on Milo, but Milo pulled off the collar and ripped open the stitches, and that is why he used staples. He told me that Milo shouldnt go at the staples (which he hasnt) and that the staples arent in deep at all so I must not worry.

I feel much better!

oh natalia...that IS such good news!! SO glad you called your vet...I'm sure no one could put you at ease more than your vet.

I'm curious (sorry to have so many questions, but you are the only person I know in SA with gliders, so this is a HUGE chance for me to learn) are your gliders there bigger than those we have here? like do you know how much Milo weighs?

most people use a gram scale...like for weighing food. Do you have any other pictures of Milo? like maybe one where you are holding him or something?

All his photos (and Mia's) are here:



Sugars

But this photo might help, he is next to my cell phone (samsung e740) so you can compare there?

Milo & Cell Phone

Does this help?

And about the weighing thingy - I can get the scale but how do I make him keep still long enough to weigh? blush

most people weigh the sleeping or bonding pouch to get an idea of how much the pouch weighs, then weigh the glider in the pouch while he is sleeping...

In Australia they tend to be bigger...Peri's aren't THAT much bigger than ours, but they have MUCH fuller tails. There are some Squirrel Gliders in the US...VERY few, actually my Mentor Peggy (SRLB) has a pair and so does Priscilla Price...they are a little bigger, & more brown in color with much more round faces. Then there are SOME in Australia that are HUGE by our standards...in some pictures I've seen they appear to be the size of a small cat!

WOW!!! that is so weird hey? Like I'm sure a South African German Shepherd would be same as yours, so you wouldnt expect gliders to be different!

true...I guess because there are sub-species within the species...Peri's a member here, her screen name is Winkle; I bet if you drop her a PM she can give you some good links for checking out the different gliders!

If it helps, I weigh my gliders in a cup or bowl - I find it hard to get an exact weight on my pouch as it's much larger than my scale. I just get a plastic cup, put a treat in there, and weigh them in that. They usually hold still long enough if you put a treat in.

Another quick update.
Milo is still doing absolutely fine, and I'm calming down a little bit too. He is grooming but no more than usual.
Only thing now is to get him to like me again frown I cant even look at him without him crabbing at me frown
Have been waking up every hour on the hour to check the wound and it is all good now!
5 days down, 11 to go!!

Hope he continues to do well. The incision, though big and weird, didn't look red or infected or anything. If he is not bothering it, then calm down. sounds like you are crabbing more than he is. grin

Initially from what you said I thought your vet was CRAZY. That's one heck of an incision for a neuter. sounds like Milo's been a bad, bad boy though! I hate that he needed staples but they're likely the only thing he isn't going to rip out. It does sound like he's going to be OK right now though and the incision looks fine. Keep us updated.

Just an offside: the squirrel gliders I've known have all been ENORMOUS. The big ones are the size of small house cats and their tails are really poofy (like a squirrel's, duh.) I wouldn't think about owning one because I don't have room for an appropriately sized cage. They're really fun to spend time with though.

Just to update everybody, Milo is doing just fine!

His pom is really looking like a dried up umbilical cord, but other than that, his staples are looking fine, and he is >touch wood< still not fiddling with it.

Only five more days, then we are home free!
His staples get removed on Saturday morning first thing, so depending on how that goes, I am going to do first intros on Saturday afternoon :):):)

Can't wait!

Do you have a poc? Perhaps because his surgery was so invasive, it cause it to fall off. How does the incision site look otherwise? How is he acting?

Here is a pic of my guy that was neutered with a pom off neuter last night. He is being a champ about it and I do not think he has been effected by it much, please don't mind the penis in the pic, he is 12 weeks old and very infatuated with his male parts, or somewhat lack there of now. The actual pom spot you can see the pom has been fully removed and every thing may be slightly more pink due to the surgery approx 31 hours ago but all looks well and the black you see is the stitch/suture used to close the incision site left due to the pom removal.

I don't think it's
normal for the pom to dry up and fall off with a pom-on neuter. However, I know that it does happen occasionally and it is nothing to be concerned about. It won't hurt the healing process at all and he'll be just fine hug2 hug2 hug2 You sure have been through quite an ordeal with Milo's neuter frown

I know - it has been the longest 13 days I have ever experienced! frown I'm sure Milo feels the same way. Once he gets this in the past, he deserves a big blob of avocado as a treat!!
