Myths & Methods of Neutering

Today I will be talking about the different methods of neutering, some myths that surround it and important things to know before sending your boy off to the vet. For a more in depth look at what the neutering day and recovery looked like, check out my other post here where I shared my experience with Ink’s neuter. Methods of…

Ink’s Neuter: What To Expect

Hello friends. Today I’m going to be sharing my experience with getting a sugar glider neutered. I will be doing a whole different post about myths, methods and other such things related to neutering. This post, however, is just about Ink’s neuter. After a lot of thought and consideration of Dreamer’s health, I decided that I would get Ink neutered.…

5 Reasons Play Dates Are Harmful

I hear a lot of people talking about doing play dates with their sugar gliders. I personally am very against the idea. Here are five reasons that play dates can be harmful to your gliders. One: Passing Sicknesses When a person gets a new sugar glider, that glider is almost always quarantined for a month before being introduced to the…

My Favorite Recourses

Hey guys! I have a bunch of stuff to do today and am running out of time, lol. SO this post won’t be too in depth. 🙂 I’m going to be sharing my favorite sugar glider resources – places where I have learned and grown! I hope that you will find these helpful as well. Forums Both of these forums…

Road Trips: Three Week OOP Joeys

Before I begin, let me say that I would NOT recommend traveling with joeys this young. Travel stresses gliders very much and this is a time that you want to keep stress as low as possible to reduce the risk of rejection or worse cannibalization. However, if you do not have anyone who is trained in caring for gliders (especially…

Glider Safe Treats

People say that the way to a glider’s heart is through its stomach. That is a very true statement. Sugar gliders LOVE sweet things. It is important to remember that treats should be fed in moderation. Too much is not healthy for them. That said, I have a bucket load of treat ideas that you can use for bonding time!…

Inexpensive Toy Ideas

Toys that are marketed to sugar glider owners are INSAINLY expensive for what they are. Because sugar gliders are an exotic pet, people price the toys incredibly high. What’s sad about it is that half of the things that are sold as “safe for a sugar glider” really aren’t. Anything that has strings, many metal toys, anything with small parts…NOT…

Help For Constipated Gliders

I had only had my gliders for a month or so, when I noticed that Dreamer was acting strangely. She would hiss and hunch over while trying to go poop. Over the next few days, it continued to get worse and I could see that she was in a lot of pain and having a lot of trouble. Insert me…

When Gliders Bite (+ baby pictures)

Hey guys! I am finally getting around to writing this post. I’ve been meaning to write it for months, but every time I even think about writing it, Ink has a relapse and goes back to gnawing on my hands. *rolls eyes* It is partly my fault. When I’m too tired or stressed or whatever, I end up not caring…
