Welcome to the rewarding world of Sugar Bears! If you are reading these Special Reports you have probably just bought at least one baby Sugar Bear, or you’re interested in learning more about owning one. Either way, you will want to know as much as possible about how to properly feed and care for baby Sugar Bears, and THAT is what these Special Reports are for.
Before you read any further, it’s important for you to understand that there is no one “right way” to raise and care for your Sugar Bear. Unfortunately, nowadays there is a LOT of gossip and incorrect information out there about Sugar Bears, especially on internet chat rooms and web sites, and most of these self-proclaimed Internet “experts” (many of whom only have less than a dozen pairs of Sugar Bears themselves) will try and lead you to believe that THEIR way is the only way to do things, and that anything else is going to hurt – or even kill – your Sugar Bears. The following link is an independent article that examines the damaging effects of Sugar Bear "expert" internet sites and message boards. It is well-worth taking a couple minutes to read this... Special Report: Sugar Bear Message Boards - Helpful or Harmful
To kind of put this in a little better perspective for you, as of the time these reports were originally written, the team here at PocketPets has over FIFTEEN YEARS of experience raising Sugar Bears and placing literally TENS of thousands of these adorable little animals into loving homes just like yours, all around the country. However, even with all these years of experience under our belts, Veterinary science is STILL always coming up with new and better ways to care for our Sugar Bears. The reason why we strongly suggest that you follow ALL the techniques suggested in these reports is not only because they have been very successful for us, but even MORE importantly, they’ve PROVEN (over many years now) to be EXTREMELY effective for thousands of our customers.
With that in mind, here is what we suggest. No matter what ANY other book or website might “claim”, PLEASE at least start with our methods, and then once your babies are about a year old, you can explore any other ideas you like.
Now, there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with exploring new ideas when it comes to raising and caring for sugar bears WHEN THEY ARE ADULTS, but as babies it is extremely important to follow the exact diet and care instructions that are laid out for you in these reports and throughout the Family Circle section of our website. EVERYTHING that you will find on our website has been designed and approved by top Veterinarians and licensed animal care professionals who SPECIALIZE in these little animals. For example, the diet we use is specifically designed for Sugar Bears, and all our babies are already used to it. Changing the diet that a young baby is already used to can cause severe illness or even death. Therefore, in the unlikely event you choose to try any other techniques that you find on the Internet, we urge you to please do so with EXTREME caution.
As always, before trying something new, it’s usually a good idea to just ask our advice so that you don’t end up experimenting with your Sugar Bear’s health and safety. Chances are we’ve already tried it at one point or another over the last 15 years - and can tell you exactly why it’s not a good idea. Also, we love to hear from our Moms and Dads with your successes, funny stories and sweet pictures of your Sugar Bears – so keep them coming!
Now on to the “meat and Potatoes”!
