Poor baby doesnt look to well, it misses some of
Its fur on the back, looks a bit depressed, i have it for a week and it only sits in its house. I never intended to have one but when i saw how badly it was treated I decided to adopt it. I have red about the diet but it looks as if it was caged forever, how to start some kind of physical therapy i guess and what to do with the missing fur.

P.S. the country i live in has a poor veterinary system they had never heard of a sugar glider so i guess its not an option

1. get a big cage or atleast a safe area you can take him out to at night for
an hour or so.
2. get a glider safe wheel, I think this is very important, will give him
something to run on while in the cage. he may not use it at first but maybe
over time. get custom cruiser or raptor (www.mygliderwheelsandmore.com/shop-for-wheels.html) or my favorite
atticworx.com stealth or freedom wheel. this webpage is acting funny but i did
get it to work.
3. get him on a healthy diet, consider getting him a friend, and maybe start
adding some stuff to his cage slowly. toys, foraging cups with treats.
mealworms they love.
4. I would also recommend keep calling the vets in area and see if one will
see him anyway. specially if you can afford it.
