Don't be fooled by complicated "internet" diets (that require lots of time to prepare every day), or other packaged foods that claim to be "formulated just for Sugar Gliders". Over the last 15 years, we've researched every one of these so-called "Secret" formulations – and the simple TRUTH is that 99% of the time they are just plain CAT food with a couple other ingredients thrown in.
If that's the kind of thing you're looking for, (and you can put up with the odor your gliders WILL have from eating it) then in all honesty, you might want to save yourself a LOT of money and just go to Wal-Mart. :-)
If, on the other hand, you want to provide your Gliders with an EXTREMELY simple, cost-effective diet that utilizes "cutting edge" technology to keep your Gliders happy & healthy – then Glide-R-Chow & Glide-A-Mins are the right choice for you!
Glide-R-Chow is the result of several years of scientific testing and re-formulation with one of the largest "zoo-grade" pet food manufacturers in the world. It is the ONLY food we have ever found which provides ALL a Sugar Glider's nutritional needs WITHOUT causing them to develop that unpleasant - and hard to get rid of - "musky" smell (similar to that of a ferret).
NOTE: Glide-R-Chow's formulation has recently been UPGRADED to include Dent-a-Guard. Since gliders only develop one set of teeth in their lifetime, it's important to protect them - and this all-natural formulation makes sure they stay in tip-top condition all the time.
Like Glide-R-Chow, Glide-A-Mins is also the result of many years of scientific formulation. It is specifically designed not only to meet ALL the specific vitamin and mineral requirements that are SO unique to Sugar Gliders – but it ALSO provides a wide range of additional "safeguard" ingredients that will enhance and maintain the overall health of your Glider's entire digestive system.
Glide-R-Chow and Glide-A-Mins are only sold together in a TWO YEAR SUPPLY for one Glider (or the equivalent of a one-year supply for two Gliders). At a total cost of about $3.50/month per Glider, it is the CHEAPEST way to "rest easy" every night knowing that ALL your Glider's nutritional needs are being met in one simple dietary plan.
I have tried pet store food and This food is by far so much better and my gliders love it WAY better.....
And you can tell when they are eating this food they don't have the weird smell....
BLITZ IS MY 2 YEAR OLD MALE GLIDER. HE LOVES THIS FOOD SO MUCH IT'S THE ONLY THING HE WILL EAT.
My gliders, Chip & Dale, love this food. They especially like "vitamin night" when the minerals are sprinkled on their apple slices.I think they are being fed the best food available.
I have two boys (Niko and Fury) so this deal really helps! By looking at them eat everyday I can tell how much they enjoy it. To top it off I feel great knowing my boys are getting the vitamins they need to stay healthy.
My babies love this product, this is usually the first thing they go to every meal, and I know when I should have put a little more in the dish as they turn it upside down looking for more...LOL
Such a great value for the amount of food you get!!!
I really like this deal! My baby loves this food and getting 2 years worth for the price plus the vitamins is great! She will be set for a long time now!
I am so glad to be able to purchase food for our babies I know is good for them. There is no guessing if they should have this or that.. I feed them knowing they are getting good quality food they love! The Chow has a sweet smell like a bowl of raspberries!
I have purchased other food from different websites but my gliders just won't eat it. These are the only food they like and the can't get enough of the Glide-A-Mins. Definitely the best food I've found for my buddies and you can't beat the price.
Both of my gliders love this stuff. Often they will go for the chow before eating their apples. The vitamins are easy to use and complement the chow to create a balanced diet. I usually just sprinkle the vitamins on the girls apples or other fruits/veggies every other day. The girls are happy and energetic!
My Tiki girl loves the glider chow
no matter what treats i gie my babies i love knowing that they are getting exactly what they need with this. plus never have to worry about running out
I've purchased different sugar glider foods and Zoey refused them. She did get sick from not eating well. Her vet recommended Glide-R-Chow and she loved it! She gets so excited when she sees me reaching for it. It did last us almost 2 year. It would've been 2-years if our cat hadn't found it and ate some. This is the only glider food I'll order.
My two bears love this stuff. It is completly gone before their night time snack. Won't ever feed them anything else!
When I rescued an older Sugar Glider she was not being fed properly. She was sluggish and smelled really bad. I fed her Glide-R-Chow and noticed a difference right away. 2 weeks later she is active and has no smell..... Thank you
My fuzz butts love their chow! So nice and easy to order. The bowls are empty every morning!
I have had my sugar bear about a year now and he is always eating and dumping his pellets so this doesn't last me 2 years. But he likes it and it makes him smell good.
My little babies are really enjoying their new food. They also are eating more of the fresh food since we started using the glid-a-mins. Happy fuzz butts, happy momma!
I have two gliders and they love their chow and vitamins. In particular, they lick all the vitamins off the apple or treat that I sprinkle the vitamins on. One only has to serve about 18 kibble pieces with the gravy for a full dinner. It is very inexpensive and healthy!
Our gliders love this food & it smells like vanilla. I hate the smell of our dog & cat food... but this stuff smells nice. They get so excited for feeding time witn their glider chow!
I didn't like that it doesnt
I would like it if there was just the food and not the glidermins, as I still have the original bottle I got with my purchase back in 2011.
Id pay 15 bucks less.
I love how taking care of these super cute sugar gliders is made inexpensive because of packages like this! I mean, cmon 2 years worth of food and glide-a-mins for a reasonable price? That's a steal. I love this product and so do my gliders!
My little ones love Glide-r-Chow, we have two so the best value was this supply, I have tried may other brands in the past but this is really all my two will eat!
They love the food. They eat their bowl clean twice a day. And as promised they are healthy and energetic and they don't smell at all. I made the dining room you suggested and there is very little waste and no mess in the cage. I read over the ingredients and I can understand why this food is healthy for my little guys. I am very pleased with the glider chow.
I would have to say that it is really not that expensive to maintain these guys and you offer great bundle packs for the food and stuff I always go to this website when I am ready to buy more because I trust them and would not get my guys anything else
I do have the trouble of them "throwing" half their dinner away so I need to make the "dining room" for them. Otherwise they love the food and will yip at me if I didn't put out a enough for them at night. Definitely need to ensure you give them the vitamins as well.
This product is the best I have ever seen/used. The babies love it and it keeps them as healthy as can be. And you cannot beat the price on this deal. It's fabulous.
I love being able to order in bulk! It makes it very easy and I don't have to reorder for a LONG time. The only problem I've had is that sometimes Scrat doesn't eat his apple when I put the vitamins on it so the next day I have to mix some into his food. Everything else is great!
I will only buy their food and vitamins from this website. We did try to save money and buy another brand last year and immediately returned to Glide-r-Chow here, even before finishing the other brand, having been very displeased with the texture and uniformity. Our little guys, who we have had for about 5 years, love Glide-r-Chow and have never, not once, had a health issue because we feed them Glide-r-Chow and Glide-A-Mins religiously.
We have had Chumley for three weeks now and he loves his food! He didn't like his Glid-a-mins at first so I put it in blueberry yogurt and he chowed it down. Now it doesn't matter if it is in the yogurt or on his apple, he eats it right up. He loves his Glider0chow too! I do put a cube of frozen Glider gravy on it at night and there is rarely any left in the morning. I only have one glider at this time and two-year supply is a LOT of food to keep fresh. Still trying to figure out how I am going to do that.
We recently got a second baby from you at the fair a week ago today. He eats so much. Both my babies LOVE your glider chow after a cube of glider gravy melts on it, they go nuts for it.
Love this product and so does our sugar glider. So simple! I don't even know how a sugar glider can smell bad because we have fed this to him from day one!
I love how easy it is to order the food and vitamins. My sugar glider just loves the food.
My Sugar Glider has been on this diet for about 3 years now, going on 4, and she never tires of it. From what I have learned of these darling creatures, the carbs are a huge draw for them, and they even smell good enough for a cereal (I'm not that brave & am sure they're not labeled for human consumption). It would be great to reduce the price on these, but if you figure what a commercial diet would cost per lb., it really isn't that bad. My Sugar Baby is healthy, active, and has plenty of fruits and veggies, among other additions, to keep her on a beneficial Glider Chow diet for years; I have no plans to discontinue. Even when there is a decision between this food and her veggies, she chooses this food.
Our Mom gives us glide r chow every night before she goes to bed. She also gives us apple slices with glide-A=Mins, Yummy! Sometimes when we are awake we'll come out of our cozy bed when we see her coming and she will have a yogurt chip, or other fresh treat for us. Lately she has been giving us a small piece of cantaloupe, we love that too. We have lived with our Mom (and Dad) since we were little babies; March 2009; so we are now 7 years old. We are happy, healthy, and love our big cage and all the toys Mom gives us. She changes them out from time to time when we start getting bored. Our favorites are our two wheels.
P.S. Mom says thank you pocket pets, for the food and toys. She says we are the easiest pets she has ever had. She loves to snuggle with us.
My Babies Love This Food! I will ONLY buy My Food,Toys and Supplies From Pocket Pets! We Loves These People!!! Thank You!
He's still a baby, so the only thing he gets right now is his chow, vitamins, and gravy, along with his apple slices each day. He loves all of the above and the chow is always gone within the day! I can't wait to see how he grows!
Sugar gliders love the food, and they're picky as well. I had them on a diet purchased on ebay, but then they produced a musk that my roommates could not tolerate. I ordered another batch from PocketPets and they smell good as ever. I would really like the price to go down as the two year supply lasts my two gliders about three months (and is $60+ more expensive than ebay), but the quality is great.
I love the food and vitamins because not only are they nutritious for our glider, but it's also very simple! Our glider usually cleans her bowl everynight, especially if we put some honey on her food!
I have had my Sugar Glider for less that a month but the first thing I noticed was that I could ignore the advice of what to do if he was not eating. From day one, he polished off his Glide-r-Chow. Regarding Glide-A Mins, I put it on his slice of apple so I was not very concerned about that since he ate all his apple. Recently, I have been able to get him to eat the apple from my hand. On the days I put on Glide-A-Mins, he licks the apple almost before taking a bite, so I would say he finds the Glide-A-Mins very tasty.
Both products seem to be ideal for Sugar Gliders.
We adopted Gizmo and Ja-kai approx. 5 weeks ago and they have been thriving on their diet of apples, glider chow, glide-amins and glider chow. They're active and alert and there is no noticeable smell either on them or the cage. The only time I smell anything is when I wipe the cage down with warm water and cleaning vinegar, I suppose the water activates the old urine. But really the animals are as odorless as can be expected from a mammal. Since I have the kids in a bonding bag/scarf 6-10 hours a day with an apple slice I don't sprinkle the glide-amins on the apple, I add a teaspoon to the batch of glider chow, hope that's OK.
We have had our sugar bear for a few weeks now. We give our little girl Glide-R-Chow, apples, Glide-R-Gravy and Glide-A-Mins and she is super happy. I was nervous that she would smell, but this diet seems to be working great for her and I have no complaints! She doesn't small and her fur is super soft. I wont buy anything else.
This makes caring for our sugar gliders so much easier! I adopted a neutered male and female who came to me on another diet. They STUNK!!! But I didn't panic. I had already done my research and knew this was the diet I would use, and as far as the odor...there is no comparison! Their coats are gorgeous, they are healthy and active. After using it for a year, I did not place my order for a new supply soon enough and had to substitute another product. Anticipating the odor issues, I even bought enzymes to mix with their food that was suppose to eliminate odors. Within a week they were stinky again! I was so happy to see our Glide-r-chow and Glide-a-mins arrive in the mail! I've been highly motivated not to repeat that mistake! Thank you for an excellent product!
I have tried everything I can think of and my gliders won't touch whatever this is on... I've mixed it in yogurts (greek, blueberry, peach, apple, strawberry), agave nectar, sprinkled it on fruit they like, and don't like... and if this powder is in the food, it's very likely they won't touch it. I've even tried taking two spoons of the same yogurt, one with this mix, one without, they always choose the one without. I've not given up though. I'm maintaining something in their cage every night with just a minutia of this on it to make sure they at least have it available to them.
My babies love this food. There is nothing better.
The pellets are easy to use no mess, I keep a few in their dishes. These just love them. I follow Pocket Pets diet to the letter and my Kids are happy. They are so cute and spoiled. They go everywhere with us, Camping, on road trips they are the most adaptable little sweeties. I have very little problem with odor unless on of the boys forgets themselves. My girls are very lady like. Yes they little ones have individual personalities.
My sweet Lil Lilo loves Glider Chow and I know that she is getting the very best in nutrition at an affordable price. Thanx pocket pets!
We are only a month or so into this purchase, and so far it seems to be a good deal. We have two gliders though, and so the longest by far that this bag will last for them is 11-12 months for the two of them.
My husband frets over our babies so much. They are spoiled, go in his pockets everywhere. Much thanks to o Pocket Pets for the great food and vitamins. His peace of mind for his babies health is due to your great products and e-mails
This is the only food, I give my babies. I mix it with the berry chow and they gobble it up. It doesn't smell or make them smell and I know they are getting the nutrients they need.
The only chow my baby will eat! I have tried several other chows from local pet stores and this is by far the best! It came in very fast and in excellent packaging! I love this product and company!
This is the only chow my baby will eat! I have tried several others from local pet stores and this is by far the best and his favorite! The chow came in very fast and in great packaging! Love the product and this company!
We recently got our sugar bear. Being new to these animals we were very worried about her nutrition. This starter kit made it so easy to make sure that she was getting everything needed to be healthy and happy. Plus not having to worry about getting food for almost 2 years is always a perk!
Our sugar glider, Banana LOVES the Glide-R chow that we feed her! We give her fifteen to twenty pellets and an apple on top and that normally lasts her a full day! She's just a boy! But we love her :)
If you're looking for value, this is the best one for sure. Huge bag of food that will likely last a very very long time. I don't know about 2 years, but we'll see :)
buying this in bulk saves us so much hassle and zeke and Aria love the stuff its great for the essential parts of their diet and making sure they get the proper nutrion and stay healthy!
I got my two little ones from Pocket Pets a month ago when they were at a trade show here in Calgary, Canada. They came with a one month supply but I had gotten two little babies - Toky and Dini as we named them. So I wasn't sure how long the food would last being as it was for two so I ordered a two year supply right away from the website not knowing how long it would take to ship all the way up here and get through customs. To my pleasant surprise the order (along with all of the other items I ordered at the same time) arrived very quickly - about a week or 10 days if I remember correctly. My two little ones have really enjoyed the chow, gravy and even the vitamins. I place the gravy in their bowl and they lick it up, I leave dry chow in their dining room and they go right for it - even if they still have apple left. And they like eating it right from my fingers if I hand it to them - especially if there's a dabble of gravy on it. The vitamins they lick right off their apple.
I bought this on a whim a year or so back hoping I could save money on grocery trips. Now my babies love it and can't get enough. It helps in so many ways, I've recommended it to every parent I've met! Great product.
At first I wasn't sure I wanted to get TWO years worth of food, but I do have Two Gliders so really it only one year supply.
And it is nice to know we don't have to worry about food for awhile, we can just enjoy our time with the little babies.
Bonnie and Clyde Love this food and they will even take it right out of our hand. Thank you for making sure our babies have the
best nutrition available to them!
Used for years, no problems. But on the down side, I don't pay HUGE vet bills to show how much I care. I guess I'd rather have healthy kid than to try to impress others by paying big vet bills.
We have had our little fuzz butts for 3 weeks now. They eat all their food and if the gravy is still frozen they will chew on it. The dining room is a god send, keeps the mess in one location.
My baby loves the glider pellets. When he is out he try's to clime up to get his food it's funny. Great product
I tried some other food from the pet store and they didn't care about it. But they loved this food.
I am so thankful for Pocket Pets! They have made it so easy to care for our Sugar Bears. Buying something we know is good for our new pets is so reassuring and takes the worry about caring for our Sugar Bears. What a great price and what a great, completely nutritious product. We plan on only following what Pocket Pets recommends for our pets. They have done the research, they are the experts and they want our Sugar Bears to thrive as much as we do. And most importantly our bears love it!
Thank you so much!
I was feeding my Gliders all the food the pet store told me too and they stunk soo bad we moved them three times almost sold them then I found this site. WOW what a difference this food has made. thank you very much. The Smell is gone
I have 2 sugar gliders and this big bag lasts me a year! It is great and my sugar babies absolutely love it!
Good stuff. They haven't licked their bowls clean yet, but they eat most of it by morning!
My three babies enjoy glider chow very much. I have adopted two girls from another owner that feed them cat food. When I brought them home they had an odor and I thought to myself what have I done, I put a bowl of glider chow and a bowl of cat food in the cage for them to eat the first night. I have to tell you they didn't touch the cat food at all and never turned back. Guess what, NO more odor.
I've been feeding my sugar glider these pellets since I first bought her 5 years ago and she absolutely loves them till this day! The best part is that its not only tasty but its healthy too! I took her to the vet and he was amazed at how healthy she was especially for her age.
I have 4 babies that are thriving on this diet. We love Pocket Pets for providing us with not only a diet that does what it says but oh so much more. Thank you Pocket Pets family. We have learned so much from your informative website and monthly newsletters.
We got Georgia 3 months ago, she has only eaten apples, glider chow, glidamins, glider gravy, and yoghurt. We all love it, she is a very healthy and happy girl, and it is very cost effective. Would not recommend any other products this is the best!!!
We give out guy Glide-R-Chow, fruits and veggies, Glide-R-Gravy and Glide-A-Mins and always will! Our glider is so healthy with this diet and it's easy for us. Especially no worrying for us if he's getting proper nutrients or calcium:phosphorus ratios and all that ridiculousness. Our glider LOVES Glide-R-Chow, even dry without the gravy!! Seriously, we call him our glider-piggy. If we put 20 pellets in his dish (twice what is recommended), he'll eat all of it. And true to the description, our glider has no smell. The only very slight issue is that the Chow itself does not have a pleasant smell to us, but it's nothing to complain about. The glider doesn't smell. And we LOVE the value - a two year supply of Chow and Glide-A-Mins for $88? No one believes it when I tell them. We love all the food products!!!
My girls, Sheila & Mugowi have been with me for 6 years. I keep them happy & healthy feeding them the Glide-r-Chow & Mins everyday. I adopted Buster 2 years ago. He was a little under weight. After eating the Glide-r-Chow, he put on more weight. He can now keep up with his new roommates!
Our baby loves this
We have had our Gliders for 2 years now and they are doing fantastic! We only feed them Glide-R-Chow, Apples, and various other fruits and veggies. They love their food and they LOVE their vitamins. Our gliders are healthy and active and never smell! We totally LOVE the Glide-R-Chow and Glide-A-Mins!
This is the only food we feed our kids, with all the supporting information on the web site & and let's face it if Virgil likes it, its gotta be good.
I have had my baby for about 2 months now. I got her from a pet store and they gave me their version of glider food. I did my research before I got her but did even more detail after I got her and right away I slowly switched her to glider chow,glider gravy and glide-a-mins. She is eating so much better now. She gets some apple and a little yogurt so her little tummy will be ok. She loves her food and I won't feed her anything else but your recommend diet. She is doing so good and I couldn't be happier.
Thank You for your wonderful products.
Carla and Bindi
I have been feeding my girl glider chow for 5 years and have never had any problems with her health. She's happy,and energetic and I wouldn't change a thing about her diet. Glider chow is definitely what you want to feed your babies for a long happy healthy life.
My baby loves the glide a chow. I have purchased the two year supply an very glad I bought it. We are now traveling in the Bahamas and her life style is good. I never thought I could be so crazy about this animal. Thank you pocket pets
We follow the Pocket Pets diet religiously, using the glider chow, glid-a-mins, glider gravy, and organic fruits and veggies. It's easy to do and the babies love it. We recently took them go the vet specializing in exotics like our gliders. She said she had seen a lot of gliders in her career and our two were the healthiest she had ever seen!
I have to say I am very happy with the glider chow from Pocket Pets. I have had my fur babies Finnigan and Fiat for almost five years. I have been feeding them Glider Chow, apples, yogurt with Vita Mins, and lots of fruits and veggies. They have been so happy, healthy, and sweet smelling
