sick Degu

we have 6 degus, we just got one today, brought to us due to its partners Death. As I went in to feed and wather our Degus. (btw I am Heathers Husband Logan) one was verry lathargic and non-responcive. Heather is warming it up in a blanket and is seaming to perk up a little. We belive this is the new Degu. Also the tail area is a little wet. (looks a bit like hamsters wet tail).

Any Ideas??

I held him last night with a heating pad to get him warm because he was so cold.As he warmed up he acted like he was coming out of it then went into seizures, I also noticed that he had blood in and around his ear. The people who brought him said they had lost the other one tuesday, I wonder if for some reason they fought and the one was killed and he was hurt. I kept him wrapped ina blanket all night, be after the seizures started I knew there was nothing I could do. Poor little baby! I was so happy when he stated perking up when he got warm, I thought he was coming out of it.
