2 sugar gliders suddenly passed, 1 barely hanging on - 02/02/21 06:42 PM

Hi! We got sugar gliders back in September and then another about a month or so ago. They were doing great until this weekend. I found one of the first ones we got dead, eyes gone, face bloody, and the other one was beside him. Then yesterday, my sister found the newer one dead in his cage, he had a bloody nose. The first one was about 5 and the second was 2. The other 5 year old is still alive but barely hanging on. He won't drink, he licks things but won't bite, he grasps onto whatever he can, I had to clean him today. They were all fine last week but they just suddenly went downhill. Trying to keep little man alive but I'm struggling. Nothing new was introduced to the environment and they weren't handled rough. The only one that has been handled is the one alive. Please help! frown

You need to get the remaining gliders to the vet ASAP.

You should have the others necropsied to see what they died of.

The closet vet that would see him is over 2 hours away. He is drinking Gatorade and eating honey sticks right now. He's doing better right now.

Well, he passed. We put him in the bathroom to get some quiet and we went to check on him and he was gone.

I am very sorry for your loss. These gliders passed much too quick. Whatever it was, they all had.
