A hot topic of debate, among Sugar Glider keepers, is the strict dietary requirement for your pet. There are a number of diet options available for your pet so don’t hesitate to reach out to us here at Petware House and we will provide you with all the details you need. Use caution when obtaining diet details from the Internet as there is an abundance of misleading information online. Sugar Gliders may suffer from paralysis stemming from an imbalance of calcium to phosphorus in the diet which is in calcium/phosphorus levels being either too high or to low. This can be prevented with a proper diet and vitamin/mineral supplements.
With a plethora of cages available on the market today, one has to ask, which is the right for me and Sugar Glider? It’s a perfectly valid question and truth of the matter is there are just to many available on the market but some minimal guidelines should be considered. We suggest a cage of twenty –four-by-twenty-four inches, by thirty six inches high is a fair size for a pair of Sugar Gliders and is the minimum requirement. Bigger of course, is better and height should be your first consideration and is more valuable for to your pet. Always include a number of toys for entertainment and exercise wheel, nest box, pouches, etc. Ladders, branches and ropes always provide opportunity for exercise and are highly recommended items.
A nesting box is a necessity for your pet Sugar Glider. By nature these little creatures love to sleep during the day and need a place they can lay down and rest. Here at Petware House, we carry a number of ideal solutions that are will be perfect for your Sugar Glider. Typically you would want to consider a cloth pouch with a slit in front and attached to his cage, a plastic hamster house will also work well as well as a wooden birdhouse.
Petware House carries a number of suitable bedding solutions for your pet Sugar Glider, or any other pet for that matter. We carry shredded plain paper, wood shavings and a number of other solutions that are ideal for your pet with excellent absorbing power for urine and droppings. Whichever solution you should decide to use, ensure that it’s non-toxic, in the event that your pet eats it.
Sugar Gliders prefer to eat at heights and require heavy flat bottom dishes, or dishes that attach to the sides of the cage. A stoppered water bottle that attaches to the cage is likely your best option to provide your Sugar Glider with fresh water. It’s also suggested that your pet be provided with fresh water, everyday.
