About owning
Sugar Gliders
In general…

The simple truth is that anybody can look like an expert in today's internet age; and when it comes caring for any animal, taking advice from the internet is almost always a very bad idea.

As such, we strongly suggest that you rely only on Veterinary-approved information when making your decision. Fortunately, the Association of Sugar Glider Veterinarians™ (made up of over 1,100 licensed doctors of Veterinary Medicine in the U.S. and 28 countries) recently produced a free, educational video series specifically for people just like you who have questions – and want reliable, unbiased answers.

A full list of all their free videos is available by going to www.ASGV.org, but here are links to a few of the most useful videos for persons who are thinking about getting Sugar Gliders as pets. Enjoy!
