The Necropsy Effort
The Necropsy Effort is an ongoing project of The SUGAR Group. We strive to acquire data and surveys following a sugar glider's death in an effort to increase our knowledge base.
The Necropsy Effort strongly encourages owners to seek answers through a necropsy and histopathology following a sugar glider's death. In an effort to help offset the costs, the SUGAR Group will reimburse owners a portion of their costs IF they complete our necropsy survey AND provide us a copy of the written necropsy and histopathology reports.
The SUGAR Group ALSO has a program that will allow you to ship your sugar glider directly to us for necropsy. If you choose this option, your costs will be minimal ($0-50) and this will ensure that you have a full necropsy AND histopathology of a minimum of 5 tissues performed. These examinations will be performed by independent professionals at the Texas Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Lab in Amarillo. Professionals who may work on your case include:
* Veterinary pathologists (perform all necropsy and harvesting of tissue samples)
* Practicing Veterinarian
You will receive a copy of both written reports and all your information will be kept confidential.
For more information, or if you would like to participate in the program, Contact Val via our "Contact Us" page.
