Please Help Me..

:iconreaper-grell:
My pet sugar glider keeps clicking her teeth together and making funny chirping noises. None of my gliders have ever done this and I'm scared for her. I don't think that she needs a vet (I don't even know a vet).. I'm just not sure what to do. I thought that she might have swallowed something the wrong way so I rubbed her throat to get it down... This idea worked for a little while but then she started doing the same thing again.

If you have a sugar glider or pet that does this.. Please tell me what to do.

My sugar glider, Vita, never did that. But if I were you I would locate a vet and take him there as soon as posible. Or call a local vet to see if its a normal noise for a sugar glider to make. Alot of people say its a happy noise but you can never be to sure. People say cats purr when they are happy but truthfully, due to scientific reasearch, cats purr when they have any sort of human interaction. This could be something like that. But like I said to be on the safe side I would ask a vet about it. Hope that helps. And I hope your little buddy will be ok.

sugar glider sounds

I've never had one, but I raised a gray squirrel and she made WAY more noises than I thought they did.

I'm glad there's nothing wrong with your pet, but I would like to add that maybe establishing a vet for them might be a good idea; next time it might be serious and they'll want treatment quickly.

How did you get a sugar glider? I didn't know they were allowed as pets. I thought it was totally illegal for them to be taken from the wild. Unless they were injured, and kept by a wildlife carer.

I'm gobsmacked. Sugar gliders being sold on mass in America and called sugar bears. That's seems so nuts to me. Please tell me you at very least needed to get a license to own them, or to breed them for that matter?

If you've got several of them and especially if you are trying to breed them, you really should find a good vet that knows about them and can deal with them.
I have to take even my chickens to a specialist vet because most normal vets won't treat them. I can't imagine there'd be a huge amount of vets in other countries that deal with australasian marsupials.
