Molly hang in there. I have a female glider that had to have her tail amputated also, like a hampster. She wouldn't leave the tail in the badges even with a e-collar. Just keep up with the good work you are doing and give it time. I had to give more attention to her during this time and eventually she got better. My prayers are with you. hug2

He's getting alot of attention - the only time he can be without the e-collar is when he's sitting on us. He's been in my shirt since 3 today!

I really don't know the answer to that because it depends on the glider. Dehydration is a bigger problem, but you are watching for that. The only advice I can give is to give him more of what he will eat that's also fattening, like mealworms, corn, peanuts, avocado, yogurt, etc.

If you are concerned he's not getting enough calcium & vitamins you can "dust" his treats (very lightly) with Repcal Herptivite & Calcium with Vitamin D.

Of Course encourage him to eat his regular food, too, but if he won't, anything is better than nothing!

Molly, have you tried "glider junk"? (not its real name...edited myself to comply with GC rules) It's a combination of avacado, chicken meat, apple juice and ??? It's a rich, HIGH CALORIE concoction that'll help put some grams back on his frame.

You're really inspiring me to post some new pics of Magellan, ya know? Even though my digital camera isn't able to "zoom in" like I'd want....maybe it'll help you cope? (maybe I could borrow hubby dear's camera?) I've tried to put him back in with his family (he stressed out BIG TIMES) and to put ONE family member in his cage (that's failed too: THEY stress & he ignores them frown )

Lemme see what I can do tonight...

He was off his glider 'junk' for awhile. He finally started eating again 2 or 3 nights ago and has actually gained a few grams back! He ate solids for two nights now - pieces of fruit - and avocado, chicken, HPW pollen and a wee bit of bee pollen. (Modified 'junk' if you will! grin )

He is sleeping without his e-collar, but in the room next to the bed. He is also keeping himself clean and using both hands to eat. (sounds odd, but these are two things he was not doing well before surgery!)

He will not touch anything with honey in it. dunno I really don't know why - I've never had a glider turn it down. But, when I put honey with his avocado, he left it.
