PostSubject: Tail injury pictures   Wed Mar 31, 2010 11:41 pm

Here are a few pictures, two different gliders, same night injury. I left 2 cages too close together one night, 1 cage had no injuries, the other cage had 2 tail injuries. This was after I had already taken them to the vet. The vet didn't think they needed official amputations (new to gliders but tried her best) she cleaned up the ends and put them on antibiotics and pain meds. They had started to heal and then one night I found them both open and nasty again (see pics below). They both had to have official amputations and did fine after that. Just adding this for informational purpose. Never leave your cages too close together and make sure your vet understands that if the break is not cleanly between two bones, an amputation will be needed.

More photos of tail injury (this one a result of a fight):

This glider did have to have her tail amputated as well.
