I recently adopted two sugar gliders from a woman who no longer had enough time to give them. When I got them, one of the gliders, Edgar, was rather fat. He's about twice the size of my other gliders.
I know that it is very unhealthy for gliders to be overweight. What health problems should I be looking for? What are the symptoms?
What diet should I put him on to help him slim down? He is in the same cage as my other gliders. Do I need to separate them while he is on a special diet?
Right now I am feeding them bourbon's leadbeaters mix, meal worms, fruits, veggies, rep cal, hardboiled egg whites, and boiled chicken breast (once or twice a week). Is this diet balanced correctly? I just wanted to check and make sure that I was doing everything right.
I would greatly appreciate any advice.
