Someone was telling me they use glide-a-mins from Pocket Pets. Does anyone else use this? I have never heard it mentioned on here so I wondered if it was safe.

Are they vitamins? I've never heard of it before. Personally, I wouldn't use them. You should only use what your specific diet calls for.

Spread your wings and glide free of pain,
Until the day I see you again.

Glide-a-mins are the vitamins that come with your glider along with the dry pellets when you buy from Perfect Pocket Pets. (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets have been discussed on other threads on this forum and they are a glider mill - unfortunately, I also bought from them when they were at the Iowa State Fair this last year...however, I was very fortunate to have found this forum which has taught me how to care for my gliders and thanks to this forum, my girls and very happy and healthy - they are delightful and the love of my life. I threw out the glide-a-mins along with the dry pellets that were given to me by (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets and have put my babies on an approved glider diet. Mine eat HPW and they love it. I hope you can convince this person you were talking to to look at the "approved" glider diets that are available and pick one that will work for both them and their glider(s).
Please direct them to this forum so they can learn everything they need to know about these precious animals.

Its like a white powder that you put on your sugar glider's food. I dunno, I told her she shouldn't use it unless she did research on it. But like I said before I haven't heard anyone mention it before.

If it's anything from (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets, it should be trashed. They really don't know what they're doing. Well, they know how to keep gliders alive but barely alive...as long as they can sell them. But most of all, they really don't care about the long term health of the glider so anything they sell you is more than likely bad. (It's just their way of getting you to buy more stuff from them, even if it's not that great)

I don't know anything about the glide-a-mins but more than likely, they're bad or have little to no nutrional value at all...or too much of something.

I agree with Kiiru - anything from (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets should be trashed and disregarded - I can hardly talk about (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets without exploding - they definitely only care about the money and not about these precious little babies! Please have your friend check out GliderCentral asap.

Thank you. I'm glad I asked. I knew nothing about (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets or the glide-a-mins they sold her so I really couldn't help her. I def will refer her to this post.

Is there a chance that you can have your friend 'register' so that we can help her with questions on diet, vitamins, etc....
If she if feeding the diet that PPP has given her, until she changes over to another diet, she will need to give her glider vitamins.

I also agree. It gets me mad when I think about (PPP) Perfect Pocket Pets as well. Linda is right, you should try and get your friend to register so she will know exactly what to do to ensure her gliders get of glide-a-mins safely and onto a better diet.
