The growing popularity in the wonderful Australian Marsupial Sugar Glider as house pets has drastically increased in the last few years but so has the quick death of these creatures due to poor knowledge of proper care and bad diets.

It is said, and I have seen all over the net that caring for Sugar Gliders is not to hard to do. To me this is misinformation and makes it look like you can just purchase a Sugar Glider and it will be easy to keep around the house. Well it is not that simple and Gliders do take a lot of work, just like a dog or cat they need a lot of attention, special diet, your house made Glider proof and they live up to 15 years when properly cared for.

They have a quick death rate of a year due to not knowing the correct way to look after one. Once you do know what you are doing, get in to the routine of correct care, trust me, Sugar Gliders make amazing pets, so cute and lovable and can bond to you like a dog. When Caring for a Sugar Glider there are a few steps you should take and know.

1 Know What To Feed Your Pet

Sugar Gliders need the right balance of

Protein: (Insects from the pet store, do not feed them insects from the garden in-case they have pesticides, boiled eggs) be sure to watch for fat content as this effects Gliders drastically,

Calcium: Highly recommended are Vitamins and supplements sprinkled over the food you are providing. This is needed to build up a strong bone structure and to stop Hind-leg Paralysis.

Fruit and Vegetables: These should be cut in to very small pieces and be sure to stay away from canned food.

Make sure your Glider gets a daily small bowl of fresh water as they can dehydrate quickly.

2 Show Plenty Of Love and Attention!

It is amazing to know that Sugar Gliders can die from a lonely heart. Right from the beginning it is important to start bonding with your pet, it takes time but highly important. They are very sociable creatures believe me and if left alone a lot or neglected they can become depressed. Like any pet, show as much love as you can. Sugar Gliders truly make amazing pets and caring for a Sugar Glider properly can lead to a wonderful relationship

3 My Home Is Your Home

Before buying a Sugar Glider, take a look where you live. Is it fit for an energetic creature? Do you have dogs or cats? Are you high up in an apartment block? All these factors should be taking in to account. Make sure you have a lot of space for these creature to run about. Remember, they are tiny and can crawl in to anything so Glider proof your home and keep an eye on them at all time.

It takes a little work to look after a glider but as with all pets it is getting in to a regular routine with the correct helpful information that will guide you along. There are Sugar Glider Care guides, forums, blogs and you tube videos that can help but make sure it is valid and trusted information. Be good to your Sugar Glider as with any beautiful pet, they need our love.
