Yogurt in the TPG Diet

Yogurt in the TPG Diet - 12/10/18 02:28 PM

Hi there!

In about two weeks I will be picking up two beautiful twin leucistic joeys and I'm beyond excited! My partner and I took a trip to go visit the babies and to meet our breeder the other day and while we were talking about diet I became a little concerned. I planned on feeding them the TPG fresh diet, but I was made aware that dairy can be harmful. In the recipe, they use yogurt in the mixture. Would the yogurt in the diet be harmful or would it be fine since it's in such a large mixture?

This may be a dumb question, but I just want to be the best mom I can be!

Whenever yogurt is called for in a feeding plan/staple, it is okay to use. Yogurt is often used as a bonding tool as well. Could you explain more about what you were told that dairy could be harmful? That is a really broad thing to say.

I certainly would never give gliders a bowl of milk like kittens, however, there are dairy products they do enjoy. Like the occasional mac & cheese cheat night rofl

Are you getting your gliders from a breeder with a website or a hobby breeder. There is so much conflicting information where diet is concerned. It is probably the most confusing topic about these wonderful creatures agree

Just a note on the yogurt, make sure it doesn't have any artificial sweeteners in it.
