"My boyfriend and I have a male sugar glider ( I believe he's 4 years old, I am the new addition to the family). Recently our little guy's scent gland on his forehead has become swollen and red. At first we thought nothing of it that maybe we just never noticed it before, but after over a month later the painful looking mass remains. Now, his behavior has not changed nor does he seem to be bothered by it. I thought maybe it could just be a build up of oil that needs to be released, especially since it appeared to be wet around it last night. I've done some searching and found that if it is just a build up it is easily taken care of. HOWEVER, my concern is that a few months back my boyfriend had a random outbreak of MRSA and though he never handled our sugar glider at the time, I know animals are prone to developing staph infections when in close quarters with an afflicted person. I'm concerned it may be an infection or worse...a tumor. I called the vet, but lack the funds to take him in unless it is a life or death scenario (which I am willing to sacrifice for). I just wanted to see if anyone had experience with this before, explanations, opinons, etcetera. Any help is greatly appreciated before we embark on a what could be an expensive trip to the vet. Thank you!"
