Event Information

Before you look into if sugar gliders are good animals to be kept as an ESA, or do they qualify as a good ESA, you have to look into what emotional support animals are.

Emotional support animals are those that provide you comfort and comradeship and help you in eradicating any illness you are suffering from. When we say that ESAs help to cure individuals, we mean to say that they are best in curing physiological and mental problems the most. They aid individuals to deal with their depression, anxiety, and other problems which may include any trauma they have or maybe any phobia.

You may have different choices in what you decide to keep as an emotional support animal. Considering the sugar gliders, they are the little furry animals that are native to Australia and resemble flying squirrels. They are called gliders because they can actually glide in the air and normally prefer to eat sugary food. They are the suckers who suck the nectar from the mealworm snack. They have soft and thick fur with a blue-grey color.

If you plan to take sugar gliders at home and worry about whether they will make a good ESA, then yes, they are very good ESA animals. All you need is to get a realesaletter from a certified and professional clinician and get legal permission to get a sugar glider to keep with you during your treatment process.

Sugar gliders are the cutest animals, and hence, a very good choice as an emotional support animal. They are very cute and little enough that they can be taken anywhere you go. They are very affectionate and playful and can make an individual cheerful all the time.

Their cute and little mischievous character is considered to be very helpful in alleviating the mental and emotional problems of those to which they are assigned.

However, there are some defects also if you are planning to get a sugar glider at home. But the first and most important thing is that you have to get a real esa letter to keep this animal at home. This is due to the reason that they possess quite a different personality than the other animals.

 No doubt they cuddle a lot and provide affection to their owners, but at the same time, their claws make them difficult to hold with bare hands. You may find it difficult to cuddle with them. They have a flying nature and they can be all-around in your house. Especially when you have a large space for them, they will fly and can poop all over your house.

For the individuals who are bothered with these things, sugar gliders are not a good option. But if you do not have any issues with these habits, then you can go for having a sugar glider as an emotional support animal.

When getting a sugar glider as an emotional support animal, you are recommended to buy it in pairs if you do not have any problem with two ESA animals. This is done to eliminate their feeling of loneliness with a pair. They also need their partner for good interaction. Before you go for having two sugar animals, however, consider their personality traits and double it, then decide to get one or two.

Sugar gliders sleep during the day and stay active and awake during the night. Therefore, get a sugar glider when you are ready to stay and play with them at night. Otherwise, it will be of no use to get them as an emotional support animal.

If you are interested in adopting a sugar glider, contact a reputable breeder since they provide the original breed. You need to avoid mall kiosks, as they are raised in inhumane conditions. If you do not know where to get the animal, do a small internet search or contact a trustworthy vet.

It is important how you plan to keep the sugar glider, as they require a larger space. You can also get a large cage where you can keep a sugar glider and they can be allowed out of their cage as well. It is difficult to keep them open in the house as they fly a lot and you will not be able to control them. But the cage you provide them should be large enough to make them fly a little.

They enjoy toys, swings, and wheels, so keep them in your house or in the cage to provide them with a good environment. Regarding their food, you have to provide a sugar glider with multiple dishes and a water pot. You need to provide them with food rich in protein, sugar, and leafy fruits and vegetables. If you are unsure about what to provide them, then consult a veterinarian nearby to take a guide over their food.

Many people also ask questions about whether it is legal to keep a sugar glider as an emotional support animal at home. Then let me tell you the answer, yes you can keep a sugar glider at home and it is completely legal. However, there are some states where it is illegal to keep a sugar glider. So, make sure to keep this in mind and your living place as well.

Get an emotional support animal letter before you adopt any ESA animals to avoid any difficulty.
