I got out of the shower and went to peek at my boys and Tigger was floating! His pouch is all puffed out on one side! Please help, I have to leave for work like, now. Will he die?!??!?!? If he's alive when I get home at midnight, is there anything I can do for him? I'm so scared for him!:(

I just checked once more before I walk out the door... he's down and hitched by Bob again but he's still puffy. Is this gas bubble disease, or does he just have air or water in his pouch? Is this when you're supposed to take a pin or something and try to pry his pouch open? I'm afraid I'd kill him by trying! Is there any way he could flush his pouch himself?

sounds like air, don't freak anymore- its just gonna stress you out!!!
I don't know how to do the pouch evacuation: I think you can start out by holding him and rolling lightly twords the opening-but I'm not sure, So I'll let someone whos experience this tell ya!!!!
but, don't freak out-he'll be ok...

oh gosh I hope so... I'm at work right now and we can get online on breaks... I was hoping there would be more replies... I'll have to go to the .org's and see what I can find there. It was so scary seeing him floating like that!

orgs will have articles in the library on pouch evacuation.
I have never had this problem so I can't really offer advice.
