I forgot to close the top door to the cage.. oh no!
Ok, here's what happened. I came in the critter room to collect food dishes. I got my gliders dish, then grabbed the pd dish. I always leave the glider cage open so they can run around. well I accidentally left the door open to the pd cage. the gliders got into the pd cage and I can only assume they scared my poor pd and he lemminged (jumped out). His top door is about 4' off the ground. I was really worried at first, but he came right to me and went right back to his cage. Didn't look hurt. Now it has been 2 days and I have noticed blood at the bottom of the cage. I believe he is peeing blood. He doesn't like strangers. So if I were to take him to a vet they would have to put him under anesthesia just to examine him. There is always a chance that an animal might not come out of the anesthesia when put under. Has anyone had anything similiar happen? The last exotic I took to a vet, well she didn't live 24 hrs after the visit. He doesn't seem hurt, no barks or warks of pain. But he did chatter all po'd at the gliders last night so I did not allow them out. any suggestions. (other than go to a vet) thanks
