confused Oh my, that sounds horrid, poor baby. If you think there is any chance that she has broken a bone please take her to your vet as soon as you can for x-rays and treatment.

Is there any possibility that you could be feeling her shoulder blades? Can you tell a difference from the time before you felt her back? Please come back and post with an update.

It really does sound like you need to get her to a vet as soon as you can. Gliders will hide any signs of pain or distress until they are critical, just because she appears to be acting normal does not mean she is ok.

If she has a broken bone in there it will need attention to help relieve her from pain and any further damage.

Is it possible she was ever microchipped? A friend has a dog that you can feel the chip on her back between the shoulder blades, and it does seem kind of loose when you feel it.

Wow, that sounds really strange. I'm sorry she is having a problem. Please let us know what the vet says after he sees her. And while you are going to be up all night anyway, please take just a couple of minutes and register so we know who you are and you can also post on all of the forums on the board.

Yes, please register so we can get an update on this. Posts can't stay in the Emergency forum long to keep it uncluttered, but until you register, you can only post in Emerg., Help I'm New and Board Help.

I hope it was just her shoulder blades feeling strange to you, but it sounds like it was a change. worried

no she does have something there.... and i went to the vet today :(((( this is where it gets bad :((( the only vet in town that would do anything too them is no longer there and i checked the phone books and stuff and they must have went out of business or something cause they are gone :(( i just hope she is fine cause i went to the other vets and they wouldnt even look at her i am really bummed but i guess atleast she can walk and she seems to be doing great no signs of self mutilating or anything such as that she eats well and loves the wheel still...

Where are you located? Have you tried the vet directory on here to try to find another glider friendly vet? It sounds like she should be seen, just in case, because as stated, they can really hide illnesses very well. Maybe if you tell us where your located another member can recomend a vet in your area. Hope things go well and she is ok, Im keeping her in my thoughts!

You know, the post above asking if she could have been microchipped is a good thought. You could just take her down to the animal shelter where they have a chip reader (or many vets offices have them for that matter) and see if they pick up a chip when they scan her. That's assuming you haven't had her for her whole life.

How big is the bone? Are you sure it isn't a shoulder blade? They are flat bones with a ridge running down the middle. They sit on top of the rib cage and can be moved easily. If you felt something oblong, it could be the edge of the shoulder blade, or the ridge.

A microchip would be neat, but those are usually square shaped.

Just wondering and hoping she is okay!
