Please do not try to self-diagnose or self-treat your glider. However, that doesn’t mean it’s GOOD for them. Just like any type of infection, if you catch it early, it’s usually not a big deal and just requires an oral antibiotic, which is relatively inexpensive at any vet. Again, while rare, an abscess can get very serious – very quickly – because it can spread into their sinus cavities and respiratory tract and quickly cause death if not treated as soon as it is noticed. f) Serve approximately 2-4 Tablespoons of this mixture to the potentially-sick sugar bear evenly THROUGHOUT the course of each day. Now, in many cases if you call ahead to their office, they may tell you they do not work on these animals. As we’ve already covered in the Quick Start Audio CD and this guide, Sugar Bears (also known as sugar gliders) – in general – are not really prone to any particular illness or disease. HOWEVER, under periods of stress (like the kind associated with traveling across the country and moving to a new family) it can SOMETIMES “bloom” inside their digestive tracts and cause a wide range of problems; including severe dehydration. This stress extends all the way down to the cellular level – causing every system in the baby’s body to effectively go into “crisis mode”.

Again, for much more detailed information on how to treat this – or any kind of medication condition in these animals – simply ask them to go to and join the Association of Sugar Glider Veterinarians™. :-). Like I said at the beginning of this email, if you follow the precautionary instructions exactly as we’ve laid out above for the first few weeks of their lives – you will be WAY ahead of the game and probably NEVER have a health problem with your new little addition(s). As always, if you have any other questions on this topic – or anything else – make SURE to log-in to the “Family Circle” Section of our website. If this happens, it’s pretty easy to treat using a warm, wet cloth and a substance called “triple antibiotic”.. The symptoms to me were unapparent . If, however, you don’t catch it early, it can get serious very quickly, require surgery, and even kill an animal. Now, if you happen to be one of those “extra cautious” parents who wants to be prepared for anything, you can go ahead and whip up a batch of this and just keep it in the freezer. In retrospect, she may have been twitching long ago and I only recognized the slight movements as part of her own natural processes. As we have mentioned in previous emails, the ASGV™ is a “vets-only” association that is free to all licensed Doctors of Veterinary Medicine. Other symptoms to watch for include, but are not limited to: The following symptoms are illustrated for educational purposes. Now, in the rare case where your sugar bear will NOT eat the ERM, immediately try giving them the individual parts of it separately (ie. :-), IMPORTANT NOTE ON MEDICATIONS: One of the most common mistakes people make when giving their animals prescribed medications is that they stop giving it to the animal before the medicine runs out. :-), From there, all you have to do is just follow their instructions. ************************************************************************, Ok, now that we’ve got all that “legal stuff” out of the way, let’s dive into today’s topic. 4) Possibly an additional hydro shot every other day for the next week or so (depending on how severe the dehydration was). This is Luna my Sugar Glider. This is simply because the process for treating diarrhea, dehydration or intestinal bacteria/parasites is identical to virtually any other small mammal. Notice how the eyes and ears rapidly twitch out of sync with one another. But it’s VERY important you read (not skim) the entire thing to help ensure your baby lives a long healthful life. Now having said that, if your baby is exhibiting any of the symptoms outlined above, in most cases your Vet can quickly determine the source of the problem by simply doing a quick fecal check (or “float”). All pictures are used with the original photographers' permission and are intended for educational purposes only. e) Stir everything together by hand, and then blend for approximately 3-5 minutes using an electric blender. For example, as we state in several other reports, unfortunately many Vets who don’t see Sugar Bears/Gliders on a regular basis are still relying on very outdated dietary information that has not been updated for many years.
Now, having said that, it’s important to point out that there is a BIG difference between having a simple eye “infection” or a much more serious problem called an “abscess”. For example, even if the baby’s stools become firm, always finish any prescribed medications exactly as outlined by your Vet, because that will prevent any re occurrence down the road. :-). Hopefully you’ll never need it, but this way it’s ready just in case. In addition, the following is a special “EMERGENCY RESCUE MIX” that we’ve found works wonders in a very short period of time. I received a call, as I was away from Luna, for work, and drove home in the middle of the night to be with her. These emails – while rare – are our TOP PRIORITY – and we will ALWAYS try to get back to you immediately. Just like people, most these issues are no big deal AS LONG AS YOU CATCH THEM EARLY AND TAKE APPROPRIATE MEASURES.

First, in almost every situation, your normal neighborhood Vet (that already sees hamsters & gerbils) can easily work on Sugar Bears (aka Sugar Gliders) – even if they’ve never seen one before.
All that being said, while we are still on the subject of potential illnesses, one more quick thing I want to cover is about the importance of washing your hands both before – and after – playing with your new little darling(s). Use about 1/2 TEASPOON of Kaopectate (or Peptobismol) – and 1 TEASPOON of Glide-a-Mins per standard-sized cup of yogurt. kyro298 Glider Sprinkles CO, USA 15262 Posts www permalink . The information in this article is a compilation from many GC members' input to a thread titled "Body Language of a Sick Glider". 2) they have diarrhea for more than a day or so, 3) their stool is “sticky” (possibly a sign of a Giardia “bloom”), and/or, 1) 10 Tablespoons of warm water (bottled of course – Remember to NEVER give your baby city or tap water because of potential “spikes” in chlorine levels.
