Degus tail, bleeding :(
I was given two degus yesterday. In my opinion they aren't exactly healthy or balanced...apparently the one was purchased from a pet store where they didn't even know what it was!? and the other from a woman who claimed to "handle him all the time".
The one from the petstore (Chester) barely moves, and if he does it's from one corner to another, his tail was infected when purchased, doesn't know how to use a wheel or dust bath. The one from the woman (Rocky) is bonkers, it's like he's on speed, lol but I don't know if that's normal or not.
This morning chester was making "CHEEP" type sounds and Rocky would sit on him, I would go to the cage and he would stare at me then eventually stop, I don't know if that means I terrify him or what. Anyways, I went back to bed, I just woke up now, and Chester's already messed up tail looks to be chewed and bleeding, he's being even more quiet and strange and Rocky keeps sitting on him and grooming him
I did as much research as I could before I got them but I really don't know how to deal with this...I'm worried, Chester really doesn't seem healthy..
Maybe they're not a good match? Did he do it to himself??
