I decided to get a new pair to keep my Ollie company after he lost his brother.

The pair that I'm getting, are currently on the OHPW diet. Ollie has been on BML his whole life.

Since the passing of his brother, Ollie hasn't eaten a whole lot. And when he does, he's REALLY fickle about what he's eating. Everything he used to eat and love, he now turns his nose up to. He just started picking at the BML again a couple of days ago, but still isn't eating as much as he probably should.

Long story short, I'd like to keep my new pair on the diet they're currently on, and am thinking about switching Ollie to their diet as well, in hopes that will reinvigorate his taste buds into eating normally again.

I've done a lot of reading about HPW and see that in order for the gliders to get the proper calium to phosphorous ratio, you need to feed them the proper fruits and veg to supplement. I found the chart with all of the ratios of fruits and veggies, but I find it all confusing. I've also found the "salad" mixtures used by Critterlove.

Should I just follow the salad mixtures from Critterlove? Or does anyone have any other recs on what fruit and veggies to give them? With the BML diet I had a very short list to follow, so this is a whole new realm for me!

Thanks!

In order to feed the Critterlove diet as intended, you do need to feed the salad mixtures. Otherwise you are not feeding the diet as intended by the creator.

Plus using the salad mixtures ensures that your gliders is getting the best nutrition. Peggy has taken all of the guess work out of it for you.
