New sugar glider parent here that is in urgent need of advice.
Two months ago I adopted my first sugar glider. Totally unexpected, he was delivered to the shelter in a cat carrier. As they had no knowledge, nor proper housing, I decided to take him home. As I found out pretty soon they needed to be kept in pairs I searched for a friend and adopted a sugar glider that had been alone for 2 years. Both are doing great but I am still struggling to find a diet
I am happy with. I live in Dubai and I have searched for the ingredients of most advised diets
, but of none I can get all the ingredients mentioned. Sadly not even the BML overseas diet
Currently I am feeding them a diet
advised by a petshop owner who has adopted gliders herself, but they don't seem to enjoy it as much anymore. Also I doubt it has everything they need in the right ratio's. I prefer to find something I can get the basic ingredients for here in Dubai, as ordering specific things might take up to a month delivery (for example could order the 5 cereal from nestle, but it will take a month for delivery). Don't mind ordering vitamins or other ingredients that will last long. This is what I am feeding them now:
2 cups fresh or frozen fruit chopped, 2 cups fresh or frozen veg chopped, 2 cups of nAtural honey, 10 tablespoons of plain full fat yogurt, 1 cup of orange juice, 10 tablespoon of applesauce, 6 boiled eggs and 2 cups of gerbers baby food. Sprinkle on top calcium and vitamins for sugar gliders.
There are 2 sugar glider ready foods I can order here
Instant HPW - from Exotic Nutrition
Glider complete - from Exotic Nutrition
But I understood they are not that great
Also I can get
