Many people do choose this particular diet, however, I personally do not like the sprinkle method for vitamins because you cannot know they are truly getting any of what you sprinkle on their food. This supplement is sold through the Pet Glider.

As with any feeding plan, this one must be fed exactly as laid out in order to be efficient and give your glider all that the diet intends.

Be sure to read thoroughly here before making your final decision.

To my mind, the variations on this are too ambiguous based on their proneness to HLP and Calcium deficiency. Also, I believe they scored pretty low on the current diet study that is being performed. I personally use Critterlove Complete, and also used HPW and BML for a while. Those would be my 3 personal go-tos.

I agree with Karen on the sprinkle method for the vitamins.

I too use Critterlove products with my gliders and the rescues that come in. They all love it.

I personally do not, nor have I ever recommended TPG diet. I don't like the "sprinkle method" for vitamins. Additionally, the diet was reviewed by a nutritionist, the results can be found HERE.

I too have done these 3 diets and agree. We are currently feeding Critter love complete.

IMO, TPG has too many variables and not worth the vet bills to try.

Gliders can hide sickness very well. When you can tell they are sick, they are usually really sick and require vet care immediately. So anything I can do to promote wellness and is in my control I do.
