While your locating a vet, make sure you keep him wrapped up or get him into an ecolar! Keep him warm by putting him in your shirt.
I will see what I can find for you.

He needs to be seen ASAP from what the picture looks like there could be possible necrosis at the end of his tail.
How long has this been like this? Do you know if he has been chewing on it or one of his cage mates?
It's IMPORTANT right now to get him into an ecollar or wrapped up like a burrito so that he doesn't do any more damage to it.

Not sure if these are withing your area.

I looks pretty bad. Until you find a vet make sure he doesn't make it worse by trying to groom himself or bother it. And make sure you separate him from the others to prevent more injury. Try to keep him warm and calm. Stress alone can make it worse. I hope you can find a vet soon. Good luck. My thoughts are with you. Keep us updated. hug2

I would just appear at the emergency vet clinic; they can't turn you away. I think any vet could treat an open wound like that. There are instructions for an e-collar here: How to Make an E-Collar. The key is to make sure he doesn't attack his tail any further or try to groom it. My guess is he's in pain, and if he is, he will continue to self mutilate to try and remove the source of the pain. Perhaps the vet can give you something for the pain as well as wrapping it. One possibility I've heard folks do, and a vet can decide if it would work, is to dress and wrap the wound and cut a large straw to wrap around it so the tail can't bend (and he won't be able to reach the tip). The tip of the tail does look necrotic, and unless treated immediately (amputated by a vet), could lead to blood poisoning and death.

Please, just drive to the open vet's office and demand immediate service. You can always follow up with a glider-knowledgeable vet tomorrow morning, but it may be too late if you wait. worried

After the wound is properly treated, then you can work on making and putting on the e-collar.

Please, just take him to the open vet's office now. Here's another site that may help you: Sugar Glider Self Mutilator Site.

Keep him on you, close to your body, if he is comfortable being with you. You must keep him warm and away from his tail. Maybe wrap him in fleece so he can't get to his tail. But he is in pain and needs treatment now.

hug2

Here's a google search of San Antonio emergency vets. I'm not sure who all you've called, but I'll start on that list and make calls for you.

OK; I called the first on the list. The lady answered and they have three locations. She said anyone there could look at that wound, and they do have a specialist but not on duty tonight. There is an $80 exam fee and they'll give an estimate from there:

Emergency Pet Center: San Antonio Locations
- www.emergencypetclinic.com - (210) 404-2873

*****

These guys have someone who is available tomorrow at 8:00. I'm asking if anyone is there who can treat a small animal who has chewed on its tail:

I-10 Pet Emergency
- www.i10petemergency.com - (210) 691-0900

They're one that you already called (so I'm told smile ). They have a $75 exam fee and go from there with the estimate.

*****

Some vets will work with you. When you call, ask. There are also some plans that assist, but I don't have that info readily at hand. I think it's called Care Credit. I'm in Phoenix, so I can't be of much more help. Sorry. frown

I just spoke with the one you just spoke with (210-822-2873). They must think there's an epidemic on self-mutilating gliders. tounge She said they take cards, checks, Care Credit, and of course, cash. Is this something you can put on a credit card? Or do you have Care Credit?

I don't know who all is in your area, but I believe we have members who might be your neighbors. Check out the Texas State Roll Call forum and see if anyone is online who can either help you put an e-collar on or offer additional assistance. hug2

I had this problem, too recently - it seems like 24 hour vets who will see gliders are very hard to find in parts of Texas. Is there anything we can do about that?

I am praying for your little guy, and I hope he makes it through this okay.

Also, yeah, that does look like necrosis of the tail. Cessna had that back in 2003, and the vet then at the Summertree Animal clinic (whatever happened to her? She was GREAT) helped me with her. She lived to be twelve and a half years old, so believe me your little guy may very well pull through.

And ugh, I understand about not having enough money. My local vet worked with me, and the emergency vets did a little, but they are a lot worse about not working with people who are strapped.

Hang in there.

I have some ecollars I can mail you, I might be able to overnight them. I am in Dallas and it wouldn't take long for one to reach you. PM me for my phone number/email and I'll try and get it out to you tomorrow if you haven't gotten one by then. I'll do it for free. Just please keep an eye on him, and keep calm. Try and keep calm yourself, too...I remember panicking over Cessna, and believe me things like this are scary. Just try to breathe and remember these are hardcore little guys who can make it through a lot.

Sending big-time prayers and hug2 your way to both of you. That's easy enough, and I have an endless supply of both! hug2 heart

Once treated, he'll pull through and be right as rain in no time. After this storm passes, you can think about what might've led to this behavior and what you maybe can do about it.

Good luck! hug2

It cost me around $300 to have the tip of a glider's tail amputated and she's doing fine six months later. Do you have an e-collar on to stop him from continuing to chew on his tail? Keep him separate from the other gliders too. Why don't you call to see if any vet offers a more reasonable price for this surgery? He has to have this treatment or he won't make it. Hopefully someone will be able to help you further. I'm so sorry to hear about Thor.

The entire tail does not need to be removed - just about an inch up from the swelling. Any vet can do this - it doesn't have to be a vet with glider experience. I went through this with my Darwin this past February. I know how terrifying it is, but try to relax... I've put in a call to try to get you some help... hug2
