Give him to the spca or someone who can help him if you can’t afford the vet for your dying pet maybe you shouldn’t have him. On the other hand you could try putting some water on your finger and dropping some into his mouth.

I’ve done alot of research and I’m pretty sure I’m gonna get a glider. I’m just gonna check out what others got to say about them.

i believe so, at least mine did. they can be quite a handful, though. they definitely will keep you busy. and you should try to make sure that you have a vet set up for them. In some states they have certain regulations about them, so you might want to check your states regulations and laws concerning the sugar glider. and the best place to get one would be from a local shelter. you look on petfinder.com for them. also, looking in your local phone book for shelters can help, although there are some commercial stores that sell them, although adopting would be best. hope i helped.

sorry i said although so much. :)

How long can a sugar glider stay on their owner?

Question by Knat: How long can a sugar glider stay on their owner?
I read that sugar gliders without enough attention will get depressed and sick. I work 8-10 hours a day and sometimes on weekends. This means that the sugar glider would spend most of its day in its cage. I have a pretty laid back computer type job, would it be a bad idea to take the glider to work with me?

Not to worry–they are nocturnal which means they sleep all day and are awake at night. Perfect for day workers!
