Dwarf Teeth getting long!

I give him apple-flavoured wood sticks but they just ignore it. I gave them a mineral block which they have used but their teeth are still getting long. Vets around my house don't take care of small rodents. What can I give them?

I give my gerbils cardboard paper plates tissue, and thier teeth stay normal. for some reason they don't chew on the wood things I buy them. Maybe they would like that too

Try giving him hard dog bisquits. They'll eat them and help control the teeth growth. I've also found that they prefer to chew wooden houses, or natural wood branches rather than those flavored sticks. Just make sure that the wood is free of pesticides and bake it/freeze it to kill any mites/insects/harmful bacteria it my have.

you can give them hard food that they like that way, they have to chew it to eat it.

that might be what they like to do
