Why I Chose An E-Jacket Over An E-Cone

I love research. So when I was about to have Ink neutered, I went on a research spree. I spent hours reading old threads on glider forums, watching videos and finding as much information as I could on the process and the recovery. One of the first things that I found was how important it is to have an e-cone…

Babies & Bladder Infections

Hey friends. Life here in the glider world has been a whirlwind lately! I’ve been really busy with the joeys. They are such a joy. I’m treasuring every moment with them – especially because I know that these are my last joeys (at least in the near future). It’s so bittersweet watching them grow. Every day brings me closer to…

I had such a hard time finding info on this topic. Hopefully what happened to me and my gliders will help you if you…

HLP – My Recent Obsession

I am a worrywart. Give me anything to take care of and I’m going to worry that I’m not doing it right. My sugar gliders are no exception. It seems like I’m always finding something to worry about and then going and doing tons of research on it. XD Most recently, I’ve been looking into HLP (Hind Leg Paralysis). Not…
