Question Torn skin

I just got a family of 4 gliders. 2 males and 2 females. I really don't know what to do. The two females each have a hole on them.one is on the shoulder of the younger glider and the older glider has it on the top of her body. i at first thought it was a male and i looked close at it today and found out that is a hole on her . i will put neosporin on it but don't know what else i should do. they said once the younger one is healed and i leave them alone and let them adjust they would be fine well luck is running out it has only been a week and they each have holes on them again. At first it was only the youngest i had to take out now i had to take out the 2 females anyone have any info on what i should do now ? should i keep them seperated. because its a family issue. dad and his son and his two daughters.

I would seperate them and you probably should take them to a vet who knows about sugar gliders.They probably need antibiotics for infection better to be safe than sorry with them.You never know when a tear can turn to a deadly infection.

sorry to hear about the injuries, this sounds like it was probably from a fight or another animal grabbing them through the cage or something sometime in their past. they definitly need vet care for this.these kinds of injuries often need a round of antibiotics to kill or prevent infections,these infections over time can even become infections of the blood,very serious. sorry to hear about it and i hope they get better,best of luck with them.

I would suggest taking them to the vet actually.. have you considered an illness or bacterial infection?

Yup, I agree. Separate them and call the vet. Infections can be deadly

They are doing better. The father is healing nicely. I think i need to give them each there own friend or partner. And then i think everything will be ok with them. I think the reason for all the problems is that the children are all at maturity and trying to find there place in the family. They will be ok though.
