The Critter Love® Diet Plan
For the Critter Love® diet plan, it is very simple. There are two things to choose:
One: Which staple you would like to feed. The Critter Love® Plus or the Critter Love® Complete
Two: Choose a salad you would like to feed alongside it. You can either make one of your own following one of the recipes on the website (link below),
or if you do not want to shop, chop and freeze, you can choose one of the freeze-dried salads found on the meal and sides page.
And that is the Complete diet...Staple and Salad!
As for kibble you can put some in their cages 24/7 as a snack or aide to dental hygiene.
The Difference between the Critter Love® Plus and the Critter Love® Complete
The Plus you still need to add in your own RAW honey, bee pollen, scrambled eggs (cooked), and water.
The Complete you just need to add water. Directions are on the back of the labels as well as on my website.
How to prepare and serve salads -you make on your own following one of the recipes can be found here (Instructions how to make it are at the bottom of the page):
Critter Love® Complete and Tropical Kibble
Critter Love® Tropical kibble contains Pectin and Gum which have been shown in testing to be beneficial to a sugar gliders gut health and digestion. Sugar gliders eat mainly gums in the wild. We now have a kibble that is formulated to be even closer to their wild diet.
It is to be fed alongside Critter Love® Complete. Salads can be offered a couple of times a week but no longer needed daily with the Tropical Kibble and Complete.
To adjust your sugar gliders to eating just the Kibble and Complete start off by adding your Critter Love® Complete to the kibble and allow it to soak in. Slowly over time start adding less and less of the Complete in with the kibble and offering the Complete on the side until your glider has become accustomed to eating the kibble by itself and Complete in a separate dish.
Feeding suggestions are approximately 20 pieces of kibble per glider per feeding. Adjust according to your sugar gliders eating needs.
Be sure to weigh your glider once a month on a gram scale between the hours of 1pm and 5pm when NO food or treats have been offered since dinner the night before. If your glider seems to be gaining too many grams, cut back on the amount of kibble you are offering. If they are losing grams, add in some kibble. Maintenance weight for a healthy captive bred sugar glider average between 80 grams and 150 grams. This also depends on size of glider as some are larger than others.
