🛒 Sugar Glider Possum Milk Replacer <0.8 [160g]
Sugar Glider Possum Milk Replacer <0.8 is milk substitute for possum & glider joeys with less than 80% of their pouch life completed. Joeys at this stage have furless pink skin to fine fur, eyes closed to just opened and ears drooped, or starting to become erect. Joeys are fully pouch-bound and totally dependent on milk. Faeces are yellow custard to toothpaste consistency.
✅ Formulated to match the composition of early to mid lactation possum milk.
✅ Moderate energy milk, balancing carbohydrate & protein with a relatively low fat content.
✅ Protein high in sulphur-containing amino acids (cysteine & methionine) to promote good hair growth.
“We have used and recommended the Wombaroo Possum Milk replacers for Brushtails, Squirrels and Sugar Gliders in Townsville extensively. Handling, mentoring & supervising about 250-300 animals a year. We would recommend the milks to all the members of the care group that we trained.” Eleanor & Jim Pollock (BVSc OAM).
Use Possum Milk Replacer <0.8 for pinkie and just-furring joeys, prior to pouch emergence. Furless possums and gliders are very prone to disease and mortality and should only be attempted by experienced carers with sufficient resources.
👉 Mix 1 part of Milk Replacer to 3 parts of Warm Water.
👉 To Make 100ml of Milk: Mix 16g of powder with 90ml of warm water.
Add about half the water to the powder first and mix to a paste. Then make up with remaining water and mix thoroughly. Water is preboiled to ensure that it is sterilised. If the water is too hot it can cause milk to curdle. If it is too cold then it will be difficult to disperse the powder. Once made-up, store milk refrigerated for a day or frozen for up to 2 weeks.
Once possums are fully-furred and beginning to emerge from the pouch they are ready to transition on to Possum Milk Replacer >0.8 formula. Joeys are gradually transitioned over about 8-18 days (depending on species) by mixing decreasing amounts of the <0.8 formula with increasing amounts of the >0.8 formula. This is outlined in the Wombaroo growth charts for various species.
