Sugar Gliders, like other pets and animals, need regular checkups to ensure health. Sugar Gliders are susceptible to many types of diseases and conditions that a Veterinarian can often find before it is a life-threatening condition. It is normally suggested that gliders should be checked over at least once a year, and sooner if there are documented issues. Finding a vet you trust and see consistently is essential, as care works the best when a rapport is built! Also, it is important to have an emergency plan in place, and knowing where you will bring your gliders in case of an emergency when your regular vet is closed is absolutely essential!
