Customer Question

My sugar glider is holding its mouth with both hands and seems to be in a lot of pain. I found him laying in the cage like this and even after picking him up he just lays holding his mouth. His teeth look like they may be broken. I can not find an emergency vet anywhere that will see him.

Unfortunately we waited for more than two hours for a response and the animal ended up dying.
