Hey guys i know this isn't prolly the most efficient place to put this but idk it may still help. I currently own a small but fun family of pets including 2 dogs(Alaskan malamute, a blonde pug), a hedgehog (not even lying to you he's albino *email me if you want proof) and my new sugar glider nemo :)! I just want to post that in almost every post or forum i read about proper diets its all incredibly complex and possibly expensive. To all the people out their that may read this i just want to state i have 4 happy happy healthy animals and i feed them a simple diet everyday and it dosent cost much and is very good for them. Obviously since this is a sugar glider website what im really trying to point out is what I feed my sugar glider. I don't feed her any special hpv diet or nectar or any of that sort. But I do feed her what she needs and what she's happy and willing to eat. After all I'd rather have a hyper, active, and happy sugar glider than a super super not necessary healthy one. With that Said im not feeding her potato chips and soda, but I believe it will lead her a happy prosperous life and you guys are welcome to try it or criticize it and let me know just how bad or good it is for her.
(I mix this in a blender on food chop than bag it up in 7 ziplock bags 1 for each day and put it in the FREEZER not fridge it'll spoil, then every day put one bag in the fridge so it has time to thaw but stay fresh :) then feed it to your sugar glider when dinner comes around)
1 packet of sugar free maple and brown sugar oatmeal
1 table spoon of water to soften up the oatmeal (it'll make them constipated if you don't)
1 whole fresh apple with peel still on (remove stem)
12-15 Gerber peach yogurt melts
1 cube of infant Gerber sweet potato baby food (should come in packs of 2, and rectangular shape)
1 cup of del monte diced peaches (del monte is the brand, they should come in normal fruit cup style packages)
10 white chocolate chips / morsels (for some protein)
Blend until liquid like but not too run. Some apple peel bits and white chocolate chip bits should be visible. If they are you've done it right :) it actually tastes great too. Try a little bit i promise you won't regret it.
That's the main diet
Sounds like alot but its really not and it lasts a week! Around 10 dollars a month
I put a small plate in and put a 3-4 pieces of cat food ( i know its not recommended but its not enough to hurt them, they love the taste, and has ALOT of protein) some white chocolate chips around 5 and 5 peach yogurt melts :)
I know its not ideal to feed them anything other than their natural food, but she really loves it, it makes her happy, and shes been really healthy so far. Please tell me what you think and maybe i might've helped one of those confused sugar glider diet seekers.
Thank you for letting me write and please respond or message me with complements and/or concerns.
