I'm new to the sugar glider family. I got my first two maybe a year or so ago and I've done so much research. I make their food - Bml mix. I give them spring water. I clean the cage often. I bond with them and they have toys and an exercise wheel. I got back from a two night vacation last night and immediately came to visit my gliders and noticed ones arm looked kind of funny. I told my boyfriend I thought something was wrong and he insisted otherwise. In trying to remove him from his pouch we discovered that his foot was hooked and twisted and I tried to stay calm but started shaking and we worked it off. He was really dehydrated and lethargic so I wrapped him up and called the vet and they suggested sugar water. Our vet isn't very experienced and I believe our nearest one that might be is an hour away. He only took so much (my mother pushed it) but I continued to give him regular water and later some water with a little apple juice in it. He ate maybe half a cube once it thawed out. I was feeling pretty good about it and thought that he was going to be okay. Nonetheless, I stayed up all night holding him and at one time be was really moving. He just couldn't move his back leg. Around 330 am he had been sleeping for a while and wouldn't take anything but I figured he would be exhausted anyway, so I held him and dozed off for a second because next time I looked in the blanket he was gone. I found him within a couple minutes. He was in the couch just looking at me when I found him. He was awake and doing alright. I folded his baby blanket much like his parachute bed and held him. He seemed like he does when he's just not wanting to be bothered or just tired and with it being easter I can't get him to the vet until Monday. I was going to, despite the price and I looked up the number to the vet and right before I was about to call I looked at him and noticed he just didn't look right and I roughed him up a little bit and he just wasn't moving. Then I noticed he wasn't breathing. This has been so extremely hard for me and I feel so bad. My boyfriend and I agreed now that they will go everywhere with us. they were fed and the food was eaten. I'm concerned now because I had two and now I have one and I'm not sure what to do. I love my gliders and I don't trust anyone to take care of them the way I have. I threw away the bed. I'm paranoid now about the beds. I'm really at a loss for words. I'm going to bury him soon. I just noticed though, right before I left I cleaned the cage and all the toys and the wheel has A LOT more poop than usual. Could it have been sick? It was much like diarrhea. Or rather, could my other glider have done that last night maybe because he's nervous. He's never been without his brother. If anyone has gone through this please provide advice. I'm looking to get another male glider but I'm unsure how he will deal with it. Is there anything I can do for now?

Hi guys I'm new on here and still not sure how everything works haha. I just had some questions about quarantining new gliders. Do you need to quarantine gliders if they came in a pair together? What's the purpose of quarantining them? Thanks for your help :)

Day one of being neutered
Posted by: SugieLife
Me and my girlfriend took two of our sugar gliders to get neutered, (the son, and dad) we don't know if it's okay for them to go into the cage with the family... I keep seeing that a lot of people don't have any trouble with them but i don't understand if it's because they chose to do the laser procedure.. Please help. Both of them don't have poms anymore

Sugar Gliders Gender
Posted by: Ovmckay1
Hey guys a couple months ago I got two new sugar gliders off ksl, they were supposed to be male and female and we're going to be breeders, but I think they sold me two neutered males. How do you tell? Is a pouch obvious? The supposed male doesn't have a bald spot, and from what they told me he should be about a year now, which is what lead me to wonder whether he was neutered, and when it kind of looked like he was neutered I checked the female as well.

Help with the diet
Posted by: Harleyrider1984
Okay, so I have had my glider for a couple of days now. He is doing great. I have just one concern. When I make his platter, he only eats the sweet corn and leaves everything else. Should I stop putting the sweet corn in his diet? and I just bought regular honey and agave honey. Is it okay to mix his food in honey and then serve it to him or do I give him honey in a little section of the plate by itself.

hi, i have a male sugar glider that's about a year old, i just got a female glider and she's just a baby, I introduced them to each other and she instantly hopped on his back and was holding onto him, it looked like she was biting him but he didnt freak out or make any noise or anything he acted as if she wasnt bothering him. Is that a normal thing they do?

Hi I'm new to this. I have a question. I had 1 sugar glider for about 3 months before I decided to get her a friend. When it was just her by herself we had no problems with smell. Now that I bought her a friend and had him neutered( I heard it would help with the smell) their cage smells alot and its starting to bother my mom. Any tips or ideas to reduce odor?? I appreciate it in advance

Fighting, Frightened or what
Posted by: Skellyheart2001
Im scared that my gliders are fighting. Im only an 11 year old, so I need some help on how I know if they are actually fighting. They make a sound kinda like a locust, and will stare at each and they go so fast I cant see what they do then run away from each other! Does anyone know what is going on?
