 Sugar glider Lack of energy. Please please help me.

Posted by: Liz_aristi

I am absolutely obsessed with my babies. When it comes to money or time both resources are plentiful in the care of my sugar gliders. Please hear me out.

There only symptom really is lack of awake time. And perhaps over grooming although there is no physical indication of this. As in they seem to be over grooming, but there are no missing patches of fur.

Im used to my boys waking up around 8 PM and playing hard in the cage until maybe five. But as of recently both boys seem to be only awake
for maybe two or three hours a day at the most.

Of course I already brought them to the vet for an evaluation, she said that they both seem to have a fever but really no further information was given. They are on a 10 day course of antibiotics, were on day five currently. But I have yet to see any improvement.

Ive been dismissed before, because the boys are eating, they are drinking, their poop and pee is good. They physically look well but I know my boys and something is not right.

They have a staple diet, I followed the cage requirements to a tee, double critter nation packed full of forging toys and multiple sleeping options.

Room is at 74 degrees. I keep the cage very clean in order to promote health. I could go on and on, my point is that I have genuinely given them all of the things to be happy and healthy.

So what is going on? Im losing my mind over here and Im scared to death that something is wrong. Please please, if anyone on here has an additional information I would so much appreciate that.

 Pregnant female question!!

Posted by: Scrichey

Hi, I have a long story. I will start from the beginning. Two years ago I started researching sugar gliders. Then I wanted some. I found a family ( male, female, and two joeys, male and female). I purchased them in October. After I weaned the joeys I wanted to sell the joeys. Sadly the female Joey passed away. Now I have the mother father and the older male Joey. The mother got pregnant again. The joeys are now in the pouch. That was about 5 weeks ago they went in the pouch. Now I have the two joeys and the older male joey. I am worried about the new joeys. The older male joey is aggressive towards me and sometimes his mother so I am afraid he will hurt the new babies. I want to sell him to a new home who can take care of him and bond with him and then he can have a family if his own. I have no clue where to post him at. I am also clueless with how you take care of the mother and they joeys. I need major help!!!

 My gliders arent eating!

Posted by: Vanessa2000

So my female Luna and my male Stitch havent been eating for a week, Ive put their fruits and vegetables with boiled egg and their vitamins every night but in the morning its still there, my male will take the meal worms when I feed them to him, and hell eat the yogurt drops, my female doesnt seem to like the worms so she doesnt take it from me, shell only eat the yogurt drops and papaya treats as well, they started breeding, so I feel like maybe that could have something to do with it. Theyre still very active though. Does anybody know what I should do? Or have any suggestions?

So according to the internet i need to trim my suggies nails, but since they're recently adopted, they aren't really bonding with me and I'm having a really hard time keeping them still while trimming. I tried treats, and the nail trimming pouch and still not successful. Any tips?

So i just adopted 2 gliders, and I'm really new at this. One of them, the female one named kona keeps on nipping me for no reason. I take care of her a lot so i keep getting nipped, but when others take her, she doesnt nip at them. Does she hate me or something?#129402;

 Sugar Glider siblings and a new set of red males

Posted by: Mkpage319
-----
Hello, as I mentioned in a previous journal entry I purchased two 2 month old siblings. I'm starting to get the feeling that they were 2 months old including pouch time as they are still wanting milk. How can you tell how old a glider really is?

The new gliders (red bellies) are far much larger than my husband's hand! The previous owners used these boys for breeding and didn't handle much, one bites fairly often, the other not so.

I would like to find two females to breed. One white and one white and creme.

My question is- as large as these new boys are will they hurt or try to over breed the females once I find potentials?

I am new to breeding. Any and all advice is welcomed.
