Quarantine

Quarantine




In the office of every vet I've been to, there's a clear container of various parasites from our furry family members. Unfortunately, our gliders aren't see through, like those containers.

Gliders may be riddled with parasites and you won't know it until yours is deathly ill. To make things worse, one glider can spread whatever parasite it has, to other gliders, making them ill too.

UNLESS

You follow safe quarantine procedures.

When you get a new glider, no matter who or where from, the very first thing you need to do, is take it to a glider experienced vet for a checkup. This checkup includes (but is not limited to) a fecal float and smear. A snap fecal test is best, if your vet can do it.


This first test is a baseline. This test may or may not show any parasites. Just because it shows negative for parasites, does not mean your glider is safe.

Parasites have 'shedding cycles'. During those cycles, they can be detected. To catch these cycles, it is absolutely vital that you take your glider in for a second checkup at the end of 30 days.

During those 30 days....

  • Your new glider is to have NO contact with any other gliders in your home, at any time.
  • For tent time, the tent, and contents, must be throughly sanitized between gliders.
  • You are to change clothing and wash your hands and arms between handling the new glider and your other glider(s).
  • The new glider is to be in a separate room from your other glider(s).
  • Food dishes, toys, pouches, cages, wheels, are to be washed separately and kept separate from each other.
  • Check the pooh of the new glider, every morning and every night, for any changes.
  • This regime must be followed for the full 30 days. At the end of that time, repeat the fecal test. If it shows negative, you may begin intros with your other glider(s).
  • Because parasites are so easily transmitted through our skin, through our other animals or on fruits & veggies, it is an excellent idea to have a fecal test done monthly.
