PostSubject: Shipping a glider for a necropsy/histopath   August 8th 2010, 23:06

Received the pictures from Dr.T for shipping a glider properly for a necropsy/hitopath IF needed/wanted.

If you have questions please ask and I will try my best to go over everything but doubt I will do it as he did at the SGGA.

First of all, a picture of ALL supplies needed (minus the glider)



Now for the breakdown in steps...

Glider goes in smaller ziplock baggie. (Keep in the refrigerator (DO NOT FREEZE)until you are ready to ship.)
Glider in baggie gets placed into smaller box.
Box gets placed into larger baggie and closed.



Place frozen ice pack in bottom of Styrofoam container.
Place box container glider on top of icepack.



Place second ice pack on top of box containing glider.



Place and secure lid on Styrofoam container. Place Styrofoam container inside shipping box.

Glider must be shipped OVERNIGHT. Unless you ship FedEx (which is the most expensive) you MUST be at your post office BEFORE noon in order for guaranteed overnight delivery.

Write down information for Dr.T (or whomever you are shipping your glider to). Place on top of lid of styrofoam container in plastic baggie. (just in case of water leakage)

(Bourbon, if you can, would you post a copy of what was printed out at the SGGA for this and maybe we can keep it attached to this thread please?)

Basic info however,

Name
Name of glider
Age
diet
housing
any illnesses
meds?
last time to vet
etc...

Once I get that list he had there, I will post it.

Hope this helps.

If you also need his address let me know and I can post that also.

He said that if he is the one who is doing it :

Necropsy cost $25.00
Histopath cost $150.00 (Simple)
Complete Histo (including Brain) $250.00


The Histopaths are sent to the lab he uses in California. They specialize in exotic animals so they know the different things to look for. The costs listed above are his costs, nothing more added.

Also, your records will be included in his studies he is currently working on with the necropsies/histopaths.

Thank you Peggy! I know you're not feeling well and I do appreciate your help. I have to know what happened to my little guy, especially since he went so fast with no apparent cause. I hope this will help the necropsy study.

Let me know if you ship him out tomorrow so I can let Tim know to be expecting him. Have you tried to get back in touch with Val as I really think they will be able to do more than Tim will for less cost.

When I talked to Bourbon, she said my only cost would be for shipping. If there is more $$ involved I'm stuck right now. I do have a little bit of cash but nothing coming in til Friday and having just returned from the gathering, I'm nearly broke. But, if Val can do more for less, that is what I will have to do. I do need to know! I will call her first thing in the morning. I have not slept and after the night I had and then having to drive over 5 hours to get home, I'm beat.

On my phone message you left Lynn you stated that you were on the phone with Val and you lost signal.

The cost would be for shipping and I forgot about the $25.00 for the necropsy. If he needs to send out for a histopath it would of course cost money to do that as they dont do those things right there in the office.

That is why I suggested you speak with Val.

I was dealing with a MAJOR migraine ALL day yesterday so of course I really wasnt thinking of anything but getting rid of it.

Sorry for your loss Lynn. But the costs that Dr.T gave at the SGGA is stated above.

They can be costly, just depends on how detailed the lab has to get. Sometimes they can guess from a necropsy but usually they recommend taking tissue samples and that's where the cost go up, with the histopath. My recent one just cost nearly $300.00

The necropsy effort with the Sugar Group can help(if funds available) you with those expenses but it is a refund type of help. Once they receive your paperwork (necropsy, histopath & survey) they will send you a refund in the amounts you qualify for. You don't have to have a histopath done but it's usually the only way to have a complete cause of death.

Lynn, did you ship this glider out today? If so, whoever you shipped it to will need to know to be on the look out for it.

I am sorry you had a migraine. Hope you are better now. I did originally talk with Val and lost the connection while still at OGG. I was and still am very upset about this and really want to know what & why this happened. I am not able to teach right now so have very little $$ coming in but I was able to get the money together to have Chance shipped out to Val today. He should arrive tomorrow which will allow Val to take him in personally for the testing to be done. I will be posting all of the information I get and hope it will help all of us. I do thank you for all of your concern. I still can't believe he is gone! It was only a short time he was here but he was so awesome! Gorgeous & sweet! God I miss him so much! Crying or Very sad
