Sugar Glider Info

Sugar Glider Info is run by The Sugar Glider Adventure, a small scale breeder in Eastern NC.

I have actually kinda given up on this rescue… It isn’t going to happen I can tell… The person has said nothing to me since Thursday. And Monday at 10 pm I will officially stop with this stuff and move on…

This really sucks… There aren’t very many rescues or anything here for sugar gliders. And the ones that are here are more than likely ripping you off or for me aren’t what I’m looking for (even breeder wise. I only want another female. No males right now and not even the breeders have pet only females…)

So… I’m pretty dang upset mostly at myself for the dumb decisions I’ve made.

I’m still looking around but right now things look really grim…

Where are you located?

I wanted to show the not so fun things about having Sugar Gliders in your life. People see my post photos of my fur children and automatically want one without thinking about the not so pleasant things you have to deal with. Their claws are extremely sharp. You can get them cut but I don’t. They have to have to be given supplements and fresh food daily. You have to handle them and play with them daily because they bond to their human. You have to have more then one because they are colony animals and will suffer from severe depression and could die. There is so much work that you have to do. You can’t just leave them in the cage and be done with them. They can live 15 or more years, so they are a commitment and not just a fun novelty pet. No pet should be a novelty. Basically, taking care of Sugar Gliders are like having human children. I see so many stories of people getting pets and they die from neglect it’s heart breaking.

Great post but why don’t you have your gliders nails clipped? It is essential to do so. They will stop scratching you, and without it they could get caught up in fleece or a toy which can result in being hanged. Or eventually the nails will become thick an curled under causing discomfort or wounds. Filing is not enough.
If you are uncomfortable with doing it simply take them to the vet, it shouldn’t cost too much.

I think she is just trying to make a point. Even if an owner took it to the vet for clipping it would cost money. It also costs money for a nail clipping pouch or wheel insert. Doing it in a fleece wrapped blanket is also a possibility but may be the most stressful aside from the vet.

Didn’t say there wasn’t a point made? I’m happy when people make these posts because there are ups and downs to glider ownership.
But an expense to get nails clipped is something that has to be done. And if it is not available, then they need to clip the nails themselves. There is no way around it, it needs to be done.
All gliders need their nails clipped.
I am familiar with the OP and I believe they are a responsible owner.
