Another update on Gus. He is still on steroids and calcium but he is doing much better. He has started to play a little and is using his wheel for a little bit each night. I'm only force feeding him once a day and he has even started to eat a very small amount on his own. He does eat a decent amount and more variety when I hand feed him. He has gained another gram! jump

That is just too adorable. Now who doesn't love the beach. My family used to go to Ocean City, MD when we were younger. Loved it.

Gus was off all meds and 100% normal for 2 1/2 months. He was super active, eating well and gaining weight. Last Wednesday morning when I went in to check on him he was totally neurological out of nowhere!!!! Constant head tremors, shaking, spastic movements. Went to local vet. Started back on calcium, Steroids, and antibiotic. Went to a second vet a few days later started another antibiotic. Went to exotic vet at Red Bank and started on another medication in case it is infectious like toxoplasmosis.Bloodwork showed an elevated liver enzyme (possibly from steroids) and a really low neutrophil count. A few days after starting the first round of meds the tremors have almost stopped but he is only eating what I hand feed him. Then since Monday he is blind. He is active and will eat some things for me but does not eat on his own (does know where the food dish is). I am force feeding HPW and he is maintaining his weight. He had really bad diarrhea from all the meds but now stools are more formed. It's horrible not knowing what the underlying problem is. Theresa

I am sorry to hear that your going though this again. I hope that you and your vets can get to the bottom of this quickly. Poor little Guz, sending prayers.

I am wondering what type cage he is housed in. Is it possible it is an environmental issue?

He's in a cage that another glider lived in for 7 years with no health issues. Grinch and Gwen who I have now also lived in this cage for a few months when they were babies without any problems.

Gus is still not eating on his own but will eat when hand fed. He finished the 1 antibiotic yesterday and will be done with another one tomorrow. Hopefully his appetite picks up after that. He's still blind but much more active and all the neurological signs have lessened. Fecal antigen elisa for cryptosporidium is still pending.

Just giving an update on Gus. He is 10 months old now. He has finished all his antibiotics and his meds for possible toxo. I am slowly weaning him off the steroids. He is still a little neurological and still blind. worried He eats really well on his own, is gaining weight and is very active and playful. He would constantly bark and try to get to the other two gliders but they would attack him any time they got near him. For Christmas he got a new friend Cara who accepts him and he is crazy about her. mlove He is much calmer and more settled now. I hope he continues to improve. Merry Christmas everyone. :santa: Theresa

jump Thanks for the update Theresa, I saw you posted and my heart just sank. I am glad that he is doing better.

I have a blind glider, he is in with a bunch of geriatric gliders and they take really good care of him.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

So glad to read your post and see that Sweet Gus has a friend who will be his buddy. I think you will find she will take good care of him and will make his life much easier.

Thanks so much for the sweet picture of the two of them. Look forward to many more pictures.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Just another update on Gus. Yesterday was his birthday bday :party2: He is 1 year old now. He is doing great! He is off of all meds for about 1 month. Still a little neurological and is still blind but he is very active, eats great (gained a lot of weight), and is very loving. He adores his friend Cara mlove

I had such a sinking feeling when I saw the title in my e-mail notifications. What a wonderful read when I came to the board. Those pictures are adorable heart

Happy Birthday, Gus party
