A little over a month ago my sugar glider started sleeping more, wasn't able to balance, and his eye swelled up really bad. My sister brought him to the vet because I was out of town for a couple days and she claims the vet just looked at him and diagnosed him. Which worries me because I don't now if it is just in the gums or in the root of the tooth. Which I believe, determines if it is going to need to be removed or not. She also didn't drain his eye, was she supposed to? She gave us an antibiotic for three weeks, and it got all healed up as far as I can tell, but he still hasn't been very active at night he just gets up to eat. Should I just give it time? Does anyone have any advice on how to prevent it? Or any other advice?
My vet also told me to switch from the bml diet to pellets(with fruits, veggies, nectar, vitamins, and calcium as well obviously) because she says that is what caused it, all the sweet and liquid food. Has anyone who's had a sugar glider with a tooth abscess know this is true?

I got a sugar glider about 6 months ago. my brother had him with a female but he chewed off one of her ears and a foot. he asked if i would take him so i did. im aware it takes a while for bonding. i also know they should be in a pair of two or more. the thing is, is he is really aggressive. im not sure how to go about having a buddy for him if he just trys to eat the poor thing. he crabs and bites me every time i go near him. im unsure of his age and if he is fixed. im assuming he inst fixed, could that be the cause of the aggression? any advice on how to go about fixing the aggressive behavior?

My female is pregnant and everything seems to be going well with her, she is becoming more loving, more motherly and she sings to the Joey's. My males Behavior has changed quite a bit, he stays in the pouch a lot by himself and makes this continuous squawking and chattering noise, it's not quite crabbing but it's close. Is that normal?

My sugar glider is ignoring me
Posted by: Eydis
I bought a new sugar glider to home. He’s 2 months old. But at home I have my old sugar glider and she’s 11 months old.

Please give me advice on what should I do?

HELP! sugar glider red swollen anus
Posted by: winnieandbleau
My neutered male sugar glider named Bleau has a red, swollen anus and it appears to be protruded (as if it’s inside out). Clearly he is in pain and he is continuously trying to lick at it. He is also hissing when he does to the bathroom. This has been happening on and off for a couple months now. Sometimes it only occurs very shortly and doesn’t happen again for a very long time. I feel horrible because it’s clear that I should have taken him to the vet a long time ago. I am going to take him to the vet that neutered him ASAP. I am extremely worried and since it’s about to be christmas i don’t know how fast the vet can get me in. So i’m posting this as a cry for help. I will attach a picture of Bleau’s condition on here for viewers to use as reference. My other female sugar glider has never experienced this before. This makes me think that it’s not diet related. I try my best to feed my gliders a well balanced diet, but i must admit that some night i feed them mainly just fruit, and i’m wondering if that could be the cause for his condition. I’m going to make more of an effort to make sure that they get their correct food. However it makes me think that possibly diet isn’t the problem because only one of my gliders is dealing with this problem. Please help! Also, i’m an 18 yr old girl who is not by any means rich so responses would mean a lot to me, any help is appreciated a lot.

New sugar glider
Posted by: KDRedmond98
Okay, so I got a new sugar glider 2 days ago. I understand the bonding process could take a long time. I just have some questions. I’m going to be start a new job in a month or two and I really need her to sleep throughout the day and not the night like she is now. Can I change her sleeping schedule to fit mine because the last thing I want is for her to get depressed and hate her life here. (Side note) I’m also looking for a ‘work from home’ job if anyone knows legitimate ones so I don’t have to leave my baby. Besides that I’m a little confused. She has only crab at me once for talking too loud. I think I got pretty lucky with her cause she seems genuinely sweet. But the thing is when I try to put her back in her cage from the bonding pouch (which I’ve only done once cause my grandparents wanted to see her) she gets out of her cage and runs away from me. When I try to get her back in she nips at me and scurries off; literally is a pain in my *** and time consuming to get her back in. This isn’t going to happen when we’re bonded.. right? As much as I would like her to explore, my room is not sugar glider proof. I have a huge tent that I plan to set up for her with a bunch of toys. Is that good enough until I move in a few months?

My sugar glider won’t bond to me
Posted by: Gemma_11
Hi. I have always wanted a sugar glider and we were offered one from a breeder, he was 9 months old and we were told that he would be easier to bond with and be more suitable for us. Although it’s been 2 months since I got him and he absolutely hates me. He bites whenever I try to hold him or touch him (and his bites hurt a lot) he will do everything possible to avoid me. I’ve tried everything! I’ve even contacted the breeder for help and she ignored all my messages. What do I do? Is it too late? Is he too old now?

Sugar gliders eating only about a cubes worth?
Posted by: micahbear123
I have two girls who I love to death and I'm a bit concerned with how they're eating? I use a TPG diet and I like to change it up after they eat up all of their food but they haven't been eating very well lately. Their food bowls used to be about empty but now they barely eat. Could I get some advice on what I should try?

My glider passed away at 2am. I held her as she died against me. Should i still take her to the cet to have them see why she died?

Help!! My younger sugar glider is aggressive and I don't know what to do!!
Posted by: Aris Newbie
Hey, I'm brand new to this site and I REALLY need advice! I'm 14 and new to owning sugar gliders (I have two) and I'm sure I'm doing most things right, except that I can't figure out why my youngest sugar glider, Skittles, is so mean! Whenever I feed my sugar gliders, Skittles starts crabbing and biting my other sugar glider if she gets close to her. I've only ever seen her act like that about food. They still sleep soundly together in their pouch, so I don't know what's going on and I'm really panicking! My parents told me that giving up one and getting another is not an option, and that if I give up one, I give up both. They also told me that since the sugar gliders were expensive to get, if I have to give them up, they'll also give up all of the other pets that we have! (a dog and two cats) I really don't want to lose any of them, so advice is HIGHLY appreciated!!
