    Hi everyone, we have two male Gerbils Ronny and Bobby. In the deep section of my cage I have soil as my preferred substrate. The Gerbils have since built tunnels i want to clean the cage is it okay to disturb the soil and put in fresh soil as long as I put back some clean old soil and bedding...

    I've had a lot of pets in my life but I've never had a gerbil. Right now, he's in a temporary 10 gallon glass aquarium with the essentials but I do plan on upgrading his home once I have the funds for it. He is also currently housing alone because when I got him a few days ago, he was separated...

    Hi my just over 3 month old gerbil has a small patch on his back for about a week now, his brother doesn’t have one although he did have a bald spot at his nose which I believe may be from nose rubbing (I’m treating that with a spray atm), he didn’t seem to be showing much of that though could...

    Hello, One of my gerbils seem to have a red lump/ abscess right between his testicles. He behaves normal and doesn't seem to be bother by it. I'm not sure it is something normal as I am pretty sure it comes and goes ( he had it yesterday but I didn't see it later on in the day...) Thank you, Nazz

    My one gerbil died last night (aged 3) from cancer . This has left his brother (also 3) lonely. He's franticly looking for him and keeps digging in the spot he died . I don't want to introduce one gerbil as I don't want the same problem when my old one goes but I'm not keen on introducing more...

    Hello, I heard a lot of noise coming from the gerbil cage in which I had 4 males in the below setup. What I came to see was one of the gerbils attacking the smallest of the group leaving him with a bloody rear and tail! I immediately removed the aggressor stuck him in a travel cage whilst I...

    Hello! I was wondering if anyone could help me with my gerbils. I have two female gerbils I got a few months ago and I just upgraded their cage. But one of them just seems so desperate to get out. She is constantly climbing on the cage bars and chewing on them. I blocked those bars with a wood...

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place. Does anyone have any suggestions on what they think are the best hideaways/climbing things for two gerbils? I have a fair amount in the tank already, but I'm looking to replace some that they don't use, like their coconut hide with something more fun and...

    Hello! Just out of interest, how many of you have gerbils? I have two boys, a honey cream named Rico and a REW (Red-eyed white) named Max which are both pictured below. I've had them for a year next month but they were two months when I got them :) Max is the cheeky one, he bit for a while, is...
