Original High Protein Wombaroo Diet
Wombaroo brand high protein supplement for marsupials made in Australia is the main ingredient of this diet and is often referred to as HPS or WHPS. Wombaroo supplement for OHPW can be purchased at The Pampered Glider, among other distributors.
The Critter Love Plus diet follows the same recipe as OHPW except that it uses Critter Love Plus supplement instead of Wombaroo.
GO-HPW is Green Original HPW, which follows the same recipe except that when making the staple, cut the honey in half and add a cup of Green Juice (Odwalla, Knudsen, or Bolthouse Farms brands)
The following recipe is paraphrased from The Pampered Glider’s Feeding Instructions and the Critter Love Original page.

“While the powder base of the Critter Love® Original Diet is indeed made and manufactured in Australia, it was right here in the United States that I used that powder to create and name the Critter Love® Original Diet. To set the record straight, (so to speak), here is the rest of the story…”

OHPW is also known as Critter Love Original, though the OHPW acronym is still commonly used among glider communities. It is a modification of the PML diet. Some other glider diets incorporate Wombaroo HPS in their recipes, including the AWD diet.
