I've taken in two gliders who were originally on pocket pets diet. The previous owner was informed of the dangers of feeding such a diet, and by the time she was looking to find them a new home they were eating cucumber, carrot and apple.
She informed me that my male was severely allergic to egg, which narrows the choices for a staple down to less than a handful. They are on Reep's and absolutely love it. Unfortunately the Ca:P ratio of Reep's is 1.2:1. I've been calculating day and night, rolling over in bed trying to create recipes of fruits and vegetables to bring up the calcium.
Does anyone else feed Reep's or have any thoughts on other staples that contain HPW powder, no eggs or a substitute for the egg offered by the creator?
These poor little guys have basically had a poor diet their whole lives (4 and 5 years) and I'm just trying to finally get it right, or at least do the best I can for them. If you could assist me or possibly point me in the right direction, I would be eternally grateful.
Thank you in advance for your time.
