Sugar Glider Book – Advice From Experienced Sugar Glider Owners

Sugar Glider BookI put this book together to help other sugar glider owners get the best information on how to care for their sugar gliders. With all the information available on the internet, it is hard to know what to trust. There is a lot of contradictory advice, so how do you know who to listen to?

After doing tons of research on my own and consulting with different veterinarians for my sugar gliders over the years, I decided to put everything I have learned into a book.

I get tons of questions about sugar gliders through this website, so I decided writing a book would be the best way to answer everything all at once. I am still happy to answer specific questions, but now I can recommend this book as a general resource to sugar glider owners.

What Sets This Sugar Glider Book Apart From The Others?

There are other sugar glider books out there, some good, some bad. I stand by the quality of my book.

So what makes my book different? One of the things I found that was missing from some of the older books available is information about bonding.

This is one of the most common topics that people ask questions about, so I really wanted to cover it in depth. I devoted an entire chapter to the bonding process and focused on some of the common issues that seem to come up. For example, what to do if your sugar glider bites.

Another thing that makes this book different is that I compiled the most reliable information from many different experienced sugar glider owners. There is a lot of bad information out there, and it can be detrimental to your sugar glider’s health if you follow the wrong advice. I am very fond of sugar gliders and my goal in writing this book is to help as many people as possible take the very best care of their suar gliders.

It is all too often that people get sugar gliders and do not know what to do next. They may have been told that they are easy animals to take care of, just like hamsters or guinea pigs. By reading this book, you will know exactly what is required to be a responsible sugar glider owner.

For that reason, this book is highly recommended for people who are thinking about getting sugar gliders but are not sure what responsibilities it would include. I even have an entire section devoted to deciding whether sugar gliders are the right pet for you.

  1. Your posting really straightened me out. Thanks!

  2. Hi I might be getting a sugar glider soon and I know what to feed him but how much? Do they need to be groomed like dogs? Please answer ASAP.

    • Sugar gliders should get approximately 2 tablespoons of protein, 1 tablespoon of fruits, and 1 tablespoon of vegetables. No, sugar gliders do not need to be groomed as they do a great job of grooming themselves!

  3. Also there’s not much room for the cage except the den where my basset hound is so would it be okay if my dogs cage and gliders cage are both there? The cages would be approximatly 6 feet away from eachother. But I will never play with them in the same room as eachother. Is thy okay?

    • It should be okay since the cages will be separated from each other. You will just have to try it and see. Some gliders are more fearful than others, so it is possible that your glider would be anxious having the dog nearby. You don’t want to have anything causing your gliders stress, so just monitor the situation to make sure they are okay.

  4. Hi, I am caring for my first sugar glider and I have a concern about his sexual maturity. I would like to speak with an experienced sugar glider owner regarding this. I would rather not share it here so if someone could please email me I would appreciate it.
