I am a little worried to hear about your degus coat. One thing they have in common with gerbils is that their coat looks awful (raggy, greasy, unkempt) when they are either sick or are emotionally upset. You said she??? Is she alone? Emotionally that could do it!!! Does she have any other problems? Is she eating and drinking? Does she just tend to sit in a corner and not move much? And worse of all, could she be pregnant? Waht is she eating? We have a list of food we swear by here on our Degus Page
. You can see by the degu on the top of the page that they are VERY healthy. What is her name?
