ADVICE FROM THE PRO’S:
If you think your glider is having a problem you MUST take them to a vet. Some of the things you may observe is staining, an odd smell, eyes droopy, ears down, weight loss or weight gain. Gliders hide their illness. If your glider is lethargic or cold you need to go to the vet IMMEDIATELY as your glider is likely dying!
