Recently, my dwarf hamster passed away and I have some of her treats left over. I was wondering if they would be safe for my suggies?
Thank you in advance! :)

I'm not sure that's a good idea but what are they all made of? The strawberries may be the best option but I don't know what else they added with them. If you can list what each is made of so we know if there's anything toxic or not good for sugar gliders

The ingredient list for the strawberries just say strawberries, they're freeze dried. :)

The strawberries should be fine then
The drops look ok to me (others who have more experience with this stuff come on later in the day) and the last one I'm not sure either but definitely the dried fruit is perfectly fine so you can at least feed them that (:

They enjoyed the strawberries but I'm just waiting on the other treats until I hear some other opinions :)

I have no clue on the "cup cakes" - are they very hard, intended to help wear down the rodent's growing front teeth? If so, they probably are not a good choice for sugar gliders.

Gliders teeth do not continue to grow and a very hard treat might cause injury.

The berry treats for rabbits are probably fine - but too big to offer a sugar glider as a treat. Cut them in quarters and offer smaller pieces in limited amounts daily.

Remember treats are just that - something you can offer 2 or 3 daily so that your glider will not fill up on the treats and then not eat the food needed each night for the nutrients they need.

You can always use a piece of fruit that would otherwise be included in their dinner as a treat during the day time or during evening out of cage play time. That will not spoil their dinner.

Yeah the cupcakes are kinda firm, like a Graham cracker consistency almost. And I will be sure to only use them as treats, just didn't want to waste them since they're both halfway full :)
