The Pet Glider Fresh Diet: The Pet Glider Fresh Diet consists of unsweetened apple sauce, whole milk yogurt, calcium-fortified orange juice, oatmeal, protein (chicken, turkey or eggs), fresh or frozen vegetables and fruits. 1 ½ tablespoons per glider per day served in late afternoon.
Vitamins: You must sprinkle a good multivitamin/multi-mineral, with calcium, on your gliders food everyday. These should be specifically made for sugar gliders with calcium to phosphorous ratio of at least 2:1.DO NOT USE REPTILE VITAMINS FOR YOUR SMALL MAMMAL! CLICK HERE TO ORDER
Fresh Water: You must be sure to provide your sugar glider with fresh water daily. We recommend you use filtered water and never let your water bottle be empty. WE DO NOT recommend Glideraide because it is high in sugar and it contains an unspecified amount of vitamins which could be too much when combined with other vitamins given on a daily basis. We recommend the Lixit glass water bottle and it is available on our store on our website. CLICK HERE TO ORDER
Brunch: The premium cereal (brunch) we use here at The Pet Glider is high in protein and low in fat. It has human-grade chicken, whole grain rice, and many other nutritious ingredients. Keep a small bowl in the cage at all times. We recommend 1 tablespoon per glider. Throw out old cereal, clean the bowl and put fresh cereal in. Cereal is not a nutritional requirement for our diet, however, it is a nutritional staple food they can snack on between meals. CLICK HERE TO ORDER
Monkey Biscuits: We recommend and sell the Mazuri Growth and Repro biscuits which consist of 25% protein. Monkey Biscuits are not a nutritional requirement for our diet, however, they contain a dental guard and will help keep your sugar glider’s teeth clean and healthy. Our recommendation is ½ to 1 biscuit per glider per day. CLICK HERE TO ORDER
Mealworms: The favorite healthy treat of a sugar glider (and they have told us this) is the live giant mealworm. It is a high protein treat and can be given to them on a daily basis – no more than 10-12 medium sized mealies per glider. It is also a great treat to use when bonding with your sugar glider or having fun hand feeding your pet. CLICK HERE TO ORDER
Treats: Excellent treats for sugar gliders include yogurt drops, dried fruits such as pineapple and mango, dried vegetables, and more. The Pet Glider store carries all of these treats along with other sugar glider supplies, and you can order them by clicking on their names. Also cutting up fresh fruit such as watermelon and oranges, or sweet potatoes will make your sugar gliders jump for joy. CLICK HERE TO ORDER
