I'm a member here but haven't logged on in a while. Don't have time to figure it out. Penelope will only curl up in a ball outside of her pouch. She is not as active as she usually is. She will eat and drink water, she has run on her wheel but then just lays there. I dont know what to do. What is this, what is happening, what do I do. It is currently midnight here in Ohio. I fear the worst is going to happen!!! Please help

She needs to see a veterinarian ASAP.

Have you checked her for dehydration?

Is she cold?

Does she have buddies? If so hang a few more pouches in the cage, she might just want to sleep alone.

Took her to the vet. They said she's hydrated and glucose levels are good. They weren't able to do bloodwork since they didn't have the proper staff. I am going to contact her regular vet about that portion. Other than that everything was within normal range. I did put an extra pouch in there but Ava just follows her around and cuddles with her.

I would get her in for a fecal, including Giardia, and have them check for a UTI.

Make sure your water bottle is working and provide them with a little ramekin size open water source.
Dehydration is a symptom and can kill a glider in less than 24 hours.

Open water source is important if you are feeding a kibble based diet.
