Bringing a Sugar Glider Home
Did you know that sugar gliders are classified as exotic pets? Some stores and breeders also classify them as exotic pocket pets. They are insectivores and omnivores which means they like insects and meats and some vegetables. They especially like sweets or sugary goods which is where their name comes from. When preparing to bring a sugar glider home, make sure you have enough of the foods that they like on hand and ready. Check with your vet if you’re not sure what to feed out. You should also purchase a small cage, bedding, food and water bowls, a water bottle, and toys for your sugar glider. Toys may include the ‘Silent Runner’ exercise ball that they can play with and use to get their exercise. For more ideas on what to prepare for your sugar glider’s homecoming, give your Ellicott City, MD veterinary clinic a call. Or set an appointment at this website Marriottsville Animal Hospital.
