Hi everyone! I am a newbie to this site and hope someone can help me!
I adopted two gliders. I made the TPG diet, monkey biscuits, Glider brunch, and live meal worms. They wont touch any of it! The breeder fed them chicken frittatas, and this pedia smart vanilla beverage mix. Ive never heard of feeding gliders this pedia smart vanilla mix before but needless to say I was worried about them not eating and fed it to them. That is the only thing they will eat and yogurt treats. They are drinking water fine. Ive had them for 6 days now. Any advice???

we switch new gliders to OHPW and fruits and veggies.
sometimes it seems they won't touch the fruits and veggies for about
2 months. then its a slow process, first corn then peas, then finally
they start eating most of it.
they usually eat some of the OHPW.

I would think it rare that an animal will starve itself to death when there
is food available. sounds like a good question for a vet.

I do know that some glider take a few tries to eat live mealworms, but once
they bite into them, they seem to be hooked, some recommend cutting the mealworm
in half so they get a taste of the creamy center.

growing up we had a fat beagle. the vet put him on canned veggies. He wouldn't
touch the stuff...for awhile. soon enough he got hungry and would eat the whole
thing down.

I would just give them the new food...but they are your gliders, maybe mix in
a little of the pedia smart stuff for awhile if your worried. Also you could
weight them so you have a baseline and can tell if they are losing weight and
are to light.
