Zazoo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Zazoo
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Leucistic sugar glider
Home: Quebec, Canada
   Zazoo is my cute and cuddly pet sugar glider. What makes her special is that she was born with a disease that ate her skin internally. So Last year I discovered this bald spot on her leg and I brought her to the vet. They told me that it was too late by the time I noticed so they told us that we couldn't really do anything about it. But we still kept giving her her medications and she stayed for one month at the animal hospital.

    Finally it was just getting worse and we were so sure we were going to lose her so they told me to bring her home and give her a lot of love and try to do my best. I just couldn't let her go like that so when I got home I called another vet and he suggested that we do this treatment but with chemotherapy. He told me that there would be a risk but I wanted to do everything to save her so we went for it.

    After three months of chemo she was back at home and I just couldn't believe it. I was so sure that she was a goner. So she's my little miracle... That's why she's so special to me and she's the one I luv most in the whole wide world. She's my life.
