Help please ???? Degus unwell
Hi, I hope that someone can advise me please?
My daughter has 2 degus, Frankie and Freddy and we've had them since December - she noticed tonight that they weren't their usual selves in that:-
1 appears injured - he has blood traces on his ear and nose- and he is quite subdued and not eating with the gusto he normally does
The other is just sitting - normally he doesn't like being stroked but can be touched, isn't eating and is chuntering to himself.
Does this sound as if they have been fighting or like something else? They haven't been anywhere that they could chew anything nor have they had any food they havent had before. The only thing different that happened today was that they could see a mirror whilst they were in their run as their cage was being cleaned out..which was sending them a bit loopy. I have checked also that the cage hasnt been cleaned with anything different.
Obviously, its Saturday night, and we live in a rural location, so their is no prospect of finding any veterinary help - is there anything I can do to help them tonight, or will a little bit of quiet and time to recover be whats needed??
Any suggestions would be really helping.
