Self Mutilation

This is a very deadly problem, the glider will literally chew themselves to death. Although there has not been a single cause for this problem, it is deadly. There are several reasons for this, For both males and females, it could be stress, urinary tract infection, parasites or a fungus, for females we can add a possible yeast infection, for males we can add sexual frustration, over masturbation. These causes are not the only findings, but at least it is a start. By the time a vet gets to see them, much damage has already been done. A vet exam immediately is necessary, if possible an E- collar made of x-ray film with a double layer of moleskin, to protect the edges around the neck, and make it tight enough that they can't get out, but not too tight as to choke them. I suggest staying in the vets office for an hour, to be sure the glider keeps it's collar on. Many times the collar is off by the time the people reach their home. We are currently working with a few vets to find a med. that will keep them from chewing on it. -Bourbon
