Here at The Pet Glider, we like to make sure that our glider families are happy and healthy.  That means regular checkups, new pouches, nail trimmings, and more.

This also lets us keep an eye out for new joeys!  As we welcome new gliders into our home, we check their vitals, verify that everything is going well, and then give them back to the loving embrace of their family.

Fun fact:  This little girl is this family's first joey!

Houston, Texas (December 29, 2014) – Sugar glider licensed breeder, The Pet Glider, recommends GreenStump All Natural Cleaner to pet owners for a thorough and safe cleaning of their joey’s cage.

The usual practice is to collect debris and waste from sugar glider cages using a liner, which is to be replaced daily or several times in a week. Containers must also be cleaned every day, and toys be regularly sterilized as well. When neglected, a buildup of old food and waste exposes sugar gliders to the hazards of bacteria, pests and parasites thriving on dirt. A toxic cleaner, however, also puts the sugar gliders at equal, or even greater risk of harm, especially with repeated exposure. This is why pet owners would also have to be very careful about the kind of cleaners they use for their pet’s homes. To answer this concern, The Pet Glider offers GreenStump, an all-natural cage cleaner among its array of accessories, food supplies and high rise sugar glider cages for sale.

Houston, Texas (December 29, 2014) – In continuing its efforts to consistently improve sugar gliders’ nutritional diet, licensed breeder The Pet Glider has recently added Wholesome Balance Chicken & Brown Rice Blend to its menu of nutritional packages, along with its line of healthy sugar glider supplies.

By nature, sugar gliders are omnivores, which means meat is a necessary part of their diet. Wholesome Balanceis the first dry sugar glider food to use a more natural approach. Its primary ingredient, chicken, is rich in protein that’s almost as good as insect diet in the wild. It is specially formulated to help sugar gliders become healthier, and it provides a great balance of essential amino acids.   "Our Wholesome Balance of Chicken and Brown Rice cereal blend is free of soybean meal and soybean oil, full of healthy chicken and brown rice, and loaded with many other ingredients that are specifically designed to meet your sugar glider’s needs,” says The Pet Glider. Supplies are available in the same size and price as the previous cereal.

Sugar gliders are very social animals.  In the wild, they live in groups called colonies, so in captivity, we highly suggest to interested pet lovers to purchase a minimum of two so every glider has company.  Gliders also love being with their owners, inside their shirt or maybe in their pocket, which they treat as their sleeping pouch. But like all other animals, each sugar glider has its own personality. While they are known mostly for being highly social pets, there are some that may have difficulty bonding with new companions and adjusting to its new home.

One of the newest sugar glider accessories from The Pet Glider is designed to help those gliders feel at ease.  Sugar gliders have a very keen sense of smell, and botanical formulas for aromatherapy can help to speed up the bonding process. The more the animal feels relaxed in an environment, the faster it will feel at home. We now have the Original Bonding Potion™, a calming botanical, toxic-free mix, that helps your sugar glider ease into its new home, and should keep them from being stressed.

Responsible breeders and owners of sugar gliders know that there are several factors that determine whether a particular cage is the perfect habitat for their cuddly pets. For one thing, cage coating must be correct to avoid paint from peeling off easily and contaminate the food that sugar gliders eat.

That is why we’ve already made sure that all of our available sugar glider cages for sale meet the highest standards for housing your furry friends.

Here at The Pet Glider, we have a strong commitment to ensuring that our sugar gliders have only the best nutrition available.  That commitment extends to your gliders as well, whether or not they were raised here.  In addition to our Pet Glider Fresh Diet (aka The Priscilla Price Diet), our recommended nutritional plan includes the cereal and monkey biscuits that we have both used in-house and offered on our website as part of our Nutritional Packages.  These have served as a fantastic complement to our homemade recipe, and have nurtured many generations of happy, healthy sugar gliders.  Never one to rest on our laurels, however, we are always on the lookout to improvements that can be made to our overall nutritional package.

That’s why we’re excited to announce the introduction of our new Wholesome Balance Chicken and Rice cereal, which will replace our existing cereal not only as part of our nutritional packages and single cereal items, but will also become our new standard for The Pet Glider’s own sugar gliders.  It is free of soybean meal and soybean oil, chocked full of healthy chicken and brown rice, and loaded with many other ingredients that are specifically designed to meet your sugar glider’s needs and please their taste buds. Thanks to your continued support over the years, we’ve been able to become a distributor for this particular cereal blend, and we know that your own sugar gliders will love this tasty, and nutritious, cereal.  It will be available in the same size and price as our previous cereal, and we will be offering larger supplies as well for those with larger colonies.
