PostSubject: Unsafe Foods?   Mon May 05, 2014 10:56 am

I've seen the lists for some of the safe fruits & veggies that say it's by no means a complete list, so I was wondering: What are some specific UNSAFE foods that I should absolutely keep out of my glider dinner/snack list.

Thanks in advance for your input!

I know a lot of people, me included, feed flowers. You need to research toxic flowers before you do this, and only feed safe flowers. I feed roses out of my garden or flowers from the produce section at my grocery store. Some to avoid are lillies, foxglove, oleander, and several other houseplants. Catnip is also toxic.

rat poison. Please don't feed that.   
In all seriousness, very few things are going to be greatly harmful if they get a little taste. So, while you should not intentionally feed them, you should not panic when/if your glider gets a taste or two of chocolate, garlic or onion. My gliders have had all of this on occasion and none have perished from it.

Now, if they do get into some rat poison, it is time to panic.

Lol!  Mine have eaten things with garlic & onion before as treats...okay, only thing I can think of is a tiny bit of leftover stuffing from Thanksgiving...lol. Chocolate may freak me out more. Found a mini reese's pb cup wrapper in our chihuahua's kennel the other day.  Didn't panic, but kept a slightly closer watch on him...lol.

Yes, I was pretty sure that chocolate was toxic to Gliders. I have a large boxer that once stole and then ate an entire bag of M&Ms. She's still kickin' but I'm pretty sure her stomach is made of cast iron. Among the other things she has stolen and eaten are knobs off the grill, entire packs of cigarettes, seat cushions from the patio funiture and alot of firewood. That dog...

I have a dog that can only eat one type of dog food, and that is it. Otherwise we go to the vet. No snacks, no deviations, nothing. The other dog, she's normal, LOL
Gliders on the other hand, I'm a bit more careful with them, but I try not to panic.

A little bit of chocolate won't kill them.  It is worth keeping an eye on them, but probably not too harmful.  This is Cheddar when he got into some chocolates I got for Christmas.  He was really upset when I took him away from them!
