Oh the great Grape debate.. Hot topic in the Malaysian boards for many years LOL. I used to stop feeding mine any grapes since 2009. And this year out of nowhere, i tried offering twice in a week for my gliders. So far so good. But they dont get more than 2 times a week. Sometimes only once a week and sometimes none at all.

Personal Choice indeed. But any who, you know the phrase prevention is better than cure wink You make the call!

This is actually great information. I always thought that grapes were bad for gliders, I had heard it many times, but before hearing that, my gliders always had grapes, about 3 times a week and I never had a problem. I stopped feeding them grapes after that. But now that I know they aren't bad for them I can continue giving grapes to them. smile

Ferrets are obligate carnivores who should never ever be fed anything other than meat, so that whole point about grapes being toxic is kind of moot. Plus they're full of natural sugar which will give a ferret diabetes.

I also agree that grapes are a personal choice. Last time I was around, someone had said grapes were toxic. I have been hearing both sides for years and just decided it isn't worth the risk. There are plenty of other things I can give my gliders that they enjoy.

I don't know why I remember this as this debate was ages ago, but it was the GLOBE grape only that had possibly been the culprit (never proven) and it had something to do with the country (pesticides maybe?) they had come from.

I give mine grapes every once in a while. Even giving them the skin, they suck the juices out and discard them. Haven't had them long, but no problems so far!

Yep, again I have to say...gliders are not dogs...they are not ferrets. They are gliders.

My gliders love grapes and get them once a week....i have never had problems with any of them. My oldest pair is 7 and they are just as healthy now as they were as babies...i thought about taking grapes away for good but they love them so much and since i have not had any problems i feel it is ok to give them them...they also eat many other types of friuts and veges so its not like grapes make up a big part of their diet smile

Agree...mine get them every once in awhile. I know I had read that it was the skin that was causing liver failure in dogs but mine never eat the skin...they eat the juicy center and leave the paper thin skin all curled up on the bottom of the cage.

I have as well heard such mixed things that I decide to put them on my "no" glider treat list, but I agree with most that it isn't a choice that determines if an owner is amazing or awful. Just shows who the nervous nelleys are in the group. smile

Mine get red seedless grapes. I freeze them so they will keep. No Problems. I find skins all over and sometimes in their pouches :rofl2:

Mine will occasionally eat grapes. They aren't real big fans but they do indulge once in a while.

I slice my grapes in half long ways and then in slices across so they look like melon slices - my little boy will run up and snag one out of my hand and then go settle in his corner to eat it.. and his lady will come up and eat the good stuff right out of the skin while he holds it! He looks at me like WHAT THE HECK MOM until I give him another one. Imagine one glider holding two tiny slices - while he eats one and while she eats one. I guess she doesn't want to get her hands dirty tounge Cracks me up EVERY TIME.

I have had gliders since 1997. I give grapes periodically every other week and when I need to ship or car travel, it's part of the "hydration pack" I offer them.

In 15 years, I have never had any issues whatsoever.

I believe as with anything. You wash and clean them well, offer a variety and change things out frequently, you should not have an issue.

I do agree with Karin here. Pesticides are something that are all around us. None of it is good for us. I don't believe it's the fruit that is the culprit, but the toxins they put on them. It can be dangerous to us as well if we do not wash them well.

You can also buy "Organic" as well as a precaution.

My two gliders Pocket and Stitch love grapes! I only feed them grapes maybe twice a month. Usually giving them one or two grapes cut in half... I also having noticed any problems from feeding them grapes. And i always wash any fruit or veg first.

I have never given my gliders grapes because of a fear of making them sickly. After reading this post I think I'll give them A GRAPE to share once every couple of weeks or so. agree

I've mentioned this before, but will again for those that are new.

Grapes are one of *the highest* pesticide containing fruits. There are no facts to prove that's the cuprit of bad reactions, but, in my opinion, it *could* be. Because of that when I feed grapes, I give organic and I've never had an issue.
