Baby Sugar Gliders First Trip to the Vet | Dr. T, Lone Star Vet

Oh, he’s tiny. I know. They’re supposedly 15
minutes out of pouch. ANNOUNCER: Next
up two furry faces are here to meet Dr. T
for the very first time. I’ve have Bandit and Boomer
here, two really young, adorable little shareholders. But here just for their first
wellness exam and to talk about getting neutered. Oh, they’re darling. So which one is which? Bandit is the darker one,
Boomer is the lighter one. Yeah. He looks like a bandit. Bandit, don’t you nibble. Boomer is a lot more
laid back than Bandit. Boomer will just find a
place to just hang out and chill, which is
usually on my shoulder or my daughter’s shoulder. Bandit loves to run around
and check things out. I don’t know if they’re
brothers or not. They were re-homed to me
after the people only had them for, like, a week and a half. There was a lady that was trying
to reach home to made news that her husband and her two
sons had bought a reptile show. She said they didn’t
have time for them. So I offered to take them. And here we are. All right, Boom. How are you? Let’s look at you, huh? So yeah, I wanted to come in
because I need to get these two fixed before I put them with–
– With your females? Yes. I understand. Yes, yes. I lost him. We don’t want any babies. I don’t want them to breed
with my adult females. They’re already
over-bred as it is. So I just I don’t
want any babies. This is the stethoscope. It’s OK, see the smell? I really like working
with sugar gliders. They’re just adorable. They have, like,
the biggest eyes. And they’re so soft. They’re just one of the
cutest animals I think that could possibly exist. ANNOUNCER: Boomer didn’t
seem to mind his exam. But Bandit is another story. [squealing] No way. Tell me about it. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry. OK, dude, I’m sorry. It’s like a skunk. Can you smell it? ANNOUNCER: Male sugar
gliders use three scent glands to mark territory. But if they’re
nervous or scared, their naturally sweet, musky
scent can easily turn sour. I know that scent glands. I just didn’t expect
them to actually smell like that
because I’ve pissed off a lot of sugar gliders. And I’ve never
experienced that smell. ANNOUNCER: Bandit and
Boomer pass their wellness exams with flying colors. But these little guys aren’t
ready to be neutered just yet. I would wait, just because I
want him to be an adult size. It’s more because
of the anesthesia. Whenever there is
neonate animal, you’re always pretty cautious
about anesthetizing them just because they’re
not fully developed. Something could go wrong. And so I always
think it’s much safer to wait for until the animal
is a little bit older to do elective procedures on them. So I’ll see you in like a month. OK.
