Early this afternoon I saw that both my gerbils had blood on them, Storm looked worse and to start with I thought Storm had an abscess or something and maybe the blood on Ash was from Storm. Got an appointment for them with a small animal vet this afternoon, the long and short of it is that they have had a fight, he reckons they had been at it all day and they were exhausted, they both have injuries, Ash has bites on his side and Storm has had fur pulled out He gave them two injections, one for pain and one antibiotic, starting tomorrow I have to give them antibiotics twice a day for the next 5 days then he wants to see them again to make sure everything is healing well. Thankfully the wounds aren't fatal but he said they could go into shock and they might die from that so the next 24 hours are critical, if they are still alive by Sunday morning hopefully that'll mean they will make it. I feel confident that Ash will be OK but I'm worried about Storm. They are now in separate cages and will have to stay like that as sadly they can not be put together again. All my boys seem to want to turn my hair grey at the moment.
