Ok I have been trying all day to get her in to the vet today they are booked up, but I finally got to just talk to the acual vet that seen her last week,
He said that he doesnt feel comfortable to put her on any pain meds, it would be totatlly experiemental, so I just said no. but he said that to not worry about bathing her and keep the vest on her at alll times! because she will get at it sooo fast! and to apply the antibiotic ointment until healed! the wound area isnt bad so he said she will be just fine! just we are starting alll over now that she got the scab off it, so dont take it off untill its completley healed! and the reason she went crazy trying to bite at it yesterday was because she got the scab off and it was hurting her, and bothering her, but once it scabs back up it shouldnt bother her anymore, but still dont take the vest off untill its completely healed or we will be starting over again!

Hope looks terrible! she is bald in some areas, so I guess she is sooo stressed! But the wound is healing its all scabbed over and she hasnt messed with it! she hates it when i put medicine on it but oh well.

But she is eating well, I started giving her some veggies and she loves them! I probably should be weighing her but I havent, she is getting bigger!
and she is such a little loving, and cuddly baby! I dont really hold her much becasue she seems to start messing with the vest so when i jsut leave her in the cage she sleeps alot! so I just keep her in her cage and when she sees me she just goes crazy licking me and jumping on me! its cute!
I cant wait till shes all healed and I can handle her better! with out the vest bothering her! and shes all greasy from the ointments!
But i guess she is doing well!

The fur will grow back. I'm sure the fur lose is from stress and also from not being able to groom herself with the vest on. The wound healing is good news. Keep up what you are doing. You say she is eating veggies now. You can also start her on the staple diet you feed the other gliders. Just watch her and make sure she can eat it good since you do feed Priscilla's diet. Just watch that she can eat the oatmeal that is in it. You could try to get more of the soupy part of the diet than the thicker part. Keep up the good work with this little sweetie. If you need anything you know how to reach me.

I'm in 100% agreement with Tonya: The fur WILL grow back. It may take time...but it'll come back. And the first day that she's free to groom herself, she'll go BONKERS cleaning every square inch! OCD on the hygiene department!

I would talk to your vet to see if there's something else that can be given to her orally.
It might not hurt at this point to even consider seeking a second opinion.
As far as I'm concerned it's been long enough to where she should have started to get some relief from the 'itchy' feeling.

I'm wondering if keeping the wound closed under the vest would make it itchy? Maybe and ecollar every so often to allow it to breathe would make it heal faster. Anybody have any idea?

I really dont know, I am going to stop putting the ointment on her because it seems to be making the area too moist, and the infection is gone so I dont think theres any need in it,

This morning she has her vest off, I really dont know what to do! She wont leave anything on, but its just around her neck and she isnt messin with the wound so I dont know if I am going to mess with her right now!

I just dont know what to do!

Since she's too little for a regular ecollar, try using a wide, thick band of fleece, around her neck like a collar, to keep her from getting to her belly. I'm sure someone has pics of that. It would enable air to get to the wound area, keep her from attacking it and it wouldn't be so moist.

I would use Emu oil on her wound area now. I've use it for years on my family members, myself and animals of all kinds, including gliders. The healing properties are amazing and Emu oil is perfectly safe for gliders if they ingest it. I checked before I used it on any of my gliders. My exotic vet (who treats all of the exotic animals at the local zoo) said it was safe & beneficial and everything I read online said the same.

You're doing a wonderful job! You're a great glider mommy!

Hang on! hug2 It's gonna get better. Wish we could do more than root you on, but emu oil might be the answer.

well I took her to the vet today and he gave her a shot of an antibiotic and pain medicine with anti iflamation stuff, and he gave me some blue liquid to put on her 3 times a day to numb the wound, and he said that should make her stop biting at it becuase it tastes nasty adn it will make the pain and itchy go away, he said to take the vest off of her, adn to not put anything on her, in a couple of days if she is still biting at it he said he could make her a collar or he might could do surgery and cut the dead tissue off and stitch it up.

so i dont know I just put her in her cage and she is sleepin so I am leaving her alone! I hope this medicine works!

This just feels wrong to me! Does he not realize the damage she could do in a matter of seconds if she did bite at it??? It worries me that he says it "should make her stop" and "in a couple of days if she is still biting"! In my opinion, she can't afford to wait a couple of days to see if she "might" stop biting and "might" need a collar or surgery! If she were mine, I would either keep the vest on her or make a fleece ecollar to keep her from "maybe" biting herself.
