The Diet I Feed



Hi my name is Cora, I am a USDA Licensed Breeder. The sugar glider (Petaurus breviceps) is a small, omnivorous, arboreal gliding possum belonging to the marsupial infraclass. The common name refers to its preference for sugary nectarous foods and ability to glide through the air, much like a flying squirrel. Due to convergent evolution, they have very similar appearance and habits to the flying squirrel, but are not closely related. The scientific name, Petaurus breviceps, translates from Latin as "short-headed rope-dancer", a reference to their canopy acrobatics  I am located in Northeast Texas off of Interstate 20 between Dallas,Texas and Shreveport, Louisiana.   I have on average of 8 breeding pairs. They have their own rooms. I have 3 glider rooms total. Please look at my breeding pet gliders under the meet my gliders tab. I have some sweet beauties.  I also rescue/rehome gliders. All My Breeding and retired breeding gliders are in thepetglider.com database with my name, Cora next to theirs. . I have Spencer, a White Faced Cinnamon & Self Mutilator , I had his bottom teeth removed so if he does have a relapse he cant do any damage.  I offer free glider education in my home by appointment. I fed the HPW diet for 3 years. . I fed  BML  for a year and a half prior to HPW. I now feed a more practical diet for the number of gliders I have. The glider tree has been feeding this diet for over 12 years. They have gliders live to be 10 to 16 years. I have several over nine myself.  My phone number is  903-808-1142(cell) Texting is best.  I include various free items with the purchase of each glider including a bonding pouch, & Birth Certificate. Go to the nursery tab to view pics of available joeys and more info.  I am also a Hospice Nurse so if I dont get back to you text me again. Please understand that I am probably texting or taling with a number of people daily as I am on call for folks that purchase gliders from me or that found me on the net and have questions, so be patient for my response, it usually isn't more than a few hours. You can also find my gliders and more pictures on FB, Cora's Gliders page or contact me via e-mail(angelfish_37@yahoo.com).   Thank you for gliding by!!!   I update this website often.   I reserve the right to refuse to sell to someone for any reason (Doesn't happen often). I am a small Breeder and can be picky as to where my gliders go.  

 



Sometimes glider vet bills can be costly. Be ready with carecredit.com. No interest for 1 year. Just make sure your vet takes it. Apply, you will know immediately if you qualify!



WARNING:  All gliders have the potential to self mutilate if pain/discomfort is present.  Have an ecollar on hand with instructions on how to put it on.  Self Mutilation (SM) is rare but it does happen.  Be prepared!!!!

By The Time Gliders Show Signs Of Illness They Are Very Sick And Require Vet Care.  Please See A Glider Knowledgeable Vet With The First Sign Of Illness!



Self Mutilation

  If you are having a mutilation issue this link may be helpful:

Here is a contact list of folks who say you can call them 24/7

Mutilation in gliders does not happen to all gliders when pain/ discomfort present. Why it happens to the smallish percentage it does is a mystery.  Why they try to violently "pull the pain out" is beyond me( and many others). Damage can be done in a very short period of time. They will eventually kill themselves. Just be aware of it in case it happens to one of your furkids.  Most gliders that mutilate quit when whatever it was going on is totally well. But could do it again when pain/discomfort present. Once a mutilator, always a mutilator. There is a very small percentage that for some unknown reason  there are chronic ,sporadic mutilators, that a cause cannot be found. These gliders must be monitored closely and wear an e-collar or the more prestige and comfy e-jacket made by minkasmom on gliderCENTRAL(Sugarglider.net).

You also may call or text me at 903-808-1142 :)

If you you-tube Coras gliders there are a few videos of applying an e collar and e jacket.



If Your glider has an infection that can be cultured, go ahead and ask the vet for a culture to make sure you give your furkid the right antibiotic the first time!!



Please make sure the vet you take your gliders to does not trim their teeth.

They are not rodents but rather marsupials and this procedure can bring more harm than good!



A fecal float and smear along with a check up at the vet at least once a year is recommended.
