The Pet Glider Exotic Diet


The Pet Glider Exotic Diet also referred to as The Priscilla Price Diet (Sometimes abbreviation as The PP diet, not to be confused with the Pocket Pets Diet), The Exotic Diet, and the Pet Glider Nutrition System was created by Priscilla Price, owner of the large sugar glider breeding company; The Pet Glider. The diet uses "The Pet Glider Complete" Multivitamin supplement which can only be found on their website and has no published nutritional analysis available to the public.

Ingredients:

8 ounces Fruit (Minimum of four different fresh or frozen fruits, no canned fruits.) 8 ounces Vegetables (Minimum of four different fresh or frozen items, no canned vegetables.) 6 ounces Plain Non-Fat Yogurt 3 ounces Calcium Fortified Orange Juice 2-3 ounces Uncooked Oatmeal (Use five minute regular oats, not quick cooking.) 32 ounces Applesauce (Unsweetened is best.) 6 ounces Protein (Low-fat choices such as: chicken, ground turkey, eggs, etc.) 1 tablespoon Ground Flax Seed or Wheat Germ (Optional)

Directions:

  1. Finely chop your fruits and vegetables. We recommend using a food processor. If you do not have one, make sure you chop your fruits and vegetables into small pieces. Remember the size of the animal you are preparing food for.

2. Cook your protein chicken, turkey, or eggs.

3. In a large bowl, put all ingredients except the oatmeal and stir vigerously. You want to make sure all ingredients have been incorporated and mixed thoroughly.

4. Depending on the thickness of your mix, add oatmeal. You do not want a runny or too thick of a mix, but one that has the consistency of a cake mix.

5. You will want to divide the mixture in smaller containers to freeze. Here are some recommendations

a. Use ice cube trays. Measure two tablespoons of the mixture into the individual ice cube holes. After they have frozen, you can pop them out, put them in a freezer bag, then into a plastic freezer container and take out to thaw on a daily basis to feed your babies. You also have the option to feed the portions frozen because they do thaw quickly.

b. Or you can divide your mixture into 10 smaller containers and freeze. Each container will last 2 gliders for 3 days. You would not want to divide your mixture into larger containers because you want the mixture to be fresh. You do not want the mixture to be in the refrigerator longer than 3 days.

6. Sprinkle your multi-vitamin with calcium on top of the food your serve each day. Use 1/8th teaspoon of vitamins per sugar glider. Always keep your multi-vitamins with calcium powder in the refrigerator, but do not freeze.

Feed Nightly Per Glider: 1.5 Tablespoons of The Pet Glider Exotic Diet .5 to 1 Mazuri Monkey Biscuit 1-2 Tablespoons Premium Cereal (Keep in habitat at all times, replace any leftover cereal with fresh cereal.)

Treats: No more than 10-12 medium sized mealworms per glider daily. Other treats such as yogurt drops, dried cherry drops, dried mealworms, dried crickets, etc. can be fed as well.
