    I was in Petco today and noticed that they sell liquid vitamins for chinchillas. I know there's a lot of things sold in pet stores that say they're safe for chinchillas, but really aren't. Should I give my 5 month old chin vitamins?

    Hello, I haven't been on here in a while because I just moved to South Western Pa, I'm going to vet tech school and I love it but anyway I have 2 degus and I know what they can eat and can't eat...I can't even find guinea pig food here without all the sugar, and corn. Does anyone know any food...

    I'm getting my 1st degus:hapdance: and I need to know what to feed them. The owner of the rescue center I am getting them from said that I should only feed them degu food because all guinea pig and chinchilla food has molasses in it. What does everyone feed they're degus?
  8. Degu Discussion
    Hi everyone, this is my first post on here, I'm so excited!!! I recently got my first degus for my birthday a week ago...(A 1 year old mom and her 2, 3 month old baby girls). Only thing is I can't decide what to name them... One of the babies is missing part of her tale, so my brother and mom...

    I thought I would ask for some advice and some general info on Degus since there be a possablity of me getting one or two in maybe a year or two. You see I've been looking into getting some new pets for quite a while now and my BF just told me last night that his sister raises and breeds Degu's...

  11. Degu Discussion
    Hi all, This is mainly aimed at UK owners, and I remember reading something on a post a while ago. This weekend, I was in a PAH in Warrington, and they had two very small young degus in there (a male and a pregnant female, provided to them by a local breeder). I didn't get a good look at the...
  12. Degu Discussion
    Is there any way to regulate how much one degu eats without limiting food to the other? I give my Degus crocus bulbs to chew on because they're nice and hard and are good for gnawing. They're only small, so I put three in my degus cage over night. I heard crunching all night so I assumed they...
  13. Degu Discussion
    Hey long time no see! Well Kiwi's about 8 weeks, I haven't had her for long. But the last couple days she has been looking pretty skinny to me. And today she's slow and sluggish, she was always very fast and active. And her eyes were a little closed compared to usual. Just a little, but no...
  14. Degu Discussion
    This is my first time owning Degus, and I've only had them for a week, so I may be over-reacting, but I'm worried about my male "Mark Antony". Degus are supposed to be active and energetic, but all he seems to do is sit. Whenever I look in their cage, he's sitting at his food. He seems to be...
  15. Degu Discussion
    I don't know how you guys feel about this, but I'm a little concerned that many people are housing their degus in enclosures that are much too small for them. We don't have much information on degus in the English speaking world as they are relatively new to the pet market, however, there is...
  16. Degu Discussion
    My Degu is losing the hair from her tail or it is breaking off maybe or she is over preening. This is new. Background info: Age unknown. At least 3 years old. She belonged to my Grandparents and they had her in an aquaruim. She was purchased at a pet store and they had her about a year...
  17. Degu Discussion
    As most of you know i run my own degu website and i'm trying to get together a list of foods that are available worldwide that are suitable for degus so people have a quick and easy resource that they can look at and double check a food is safe (i.e contains no sugar or mollasses) or look for...

    I know they drop fur as a defense mechanism but this is entirely different! he's missing fur on one arm and a little on his one leg. I have pix and i'm uploading them right now and will post them soon. :pics: Any ideas on how this happened? would he chew it off? His cage is of course all...
  19. Degu Discussion
    I was just reading up on them at http://www.degutopia.co.uk/ , and they look like the perfect pet. I had a hampster when I was about 7 years old, and I almost never held her because she bit me the first night I had her, so I was scared of them, but now I can pick up my Ball Python with no...
