 Affordable Glider Vet for Sarasota Area & West Coast FL People !

This vet is your best choice if you have gliders who need new glider, regular care - like a neuter and fecal (not emergency care!

They have experience and are knowledgeable in Gliders. Their receptionist owns Sugar Gliders herself and the staff is incredibly sweet.

They are located in Lakeland, FL.

- Neuters (They do "Pom On") are $45.00 per Sugar Glider and it includes pain meds in that price.

The "Pom On" neuter leaves the Scrotal Sac intact. They make a tiny slit and remove the testes. The slit is closed with a drop of surgical glue.

- Fecals are $17.00 per Sugar Glider but they may only charge you 1 fee for 2 fecals if you bring 2 gliders in at the same time. Ask if they can do 2 for 1 on fecals.

 Sugar Glider Society of Sarasota (Florida)

We are holding seminars and workshops, having educational classes, conferences and other meetings to educate owners and the public regarding the health, feeding, housing, breeding and other aspects of sugar glider ownership.

Until we get organized properly, SGSS will hold informal meetings and operate informally.

My News
We adopted/rescued 2 male gliders from 2 different homes. Quincy and Craig. I am trying to give them the best of the best. They are now neutered and passed their fecals and exams! When they are all healed up, blanky swapping begins! :-D
Favorite Quote
"When a woman births without drugs...she learns that she is strong and powerful...She learns to trust herself, even in the face of powerful authority figures. Once she realizes her own strength and power, she will have a different attitude for the rest of her life, about pain, illness, disease, fatigue, and difficult situations." -- Polly Perez
My Bio
My husband and I have created the Sugar Glider Society of Sarasota. We are NOT looking to be a rescue home, but down the line, with the right people helping me run the show, we will hopefully be able to offer a rescue/adoption/foster program.
