    I live in Michigan with two crappy pet stores and even crappier department stores. The stores carry chinchilla, ferret and even sugar glider food but not degu. Everything has some sort of sugar in it. I read on a site that rat blocks were ok. I saved the blocks after or last rat passed on. So...

    I got my first degu a few weeks ago - family was giving up what they said is a 3-4 yr old degu that they said was abandoned by previous roommate (although later after I got him they said THEY bought him from a pet store as a baby). When I got him, they had him in a cage probably suited to a...

    Previously I have been feeding my Degus DeguMenu by Vitakraft. However recently I discovered that the levels of fibre and vitamins in the feed were quite low. I wanted to buy some of the XtraVital Degu by Beaphar but the only bags of it I could find were way too small. I decided to go to pets at...

    Hi everyone, I'm new here and new to degus as well. My family and I aquired two young males (brothers) about 11 days ago.

    My mama degu had babies, 7 big babies. They're about 3 weeks now, and I think mama is losing leg hair. My dad thought it was from her habit of sitting under the wheel while daddy was running in it, and grinding off a patch of fur. Now her fur is lost on both knees, and I"m not sure if it has...

    Hey, I was seaching the internet for information about Degus and ran across this website that I found to be helpful. I wanted to share it with you. I liked it. I'm still having problems with finding the right kinds of food to feed my little goo-girls. Everything seems to have molasses in it or...

    I am a new owner, so I am still learning. I have a wonderful mix that is safe for Degus. I have checked. I am being so careful. (Over-protective mommy here) Anyway, they go right for the pumpkin seeds that are in the mix. Can I purchase a bag of dried Pumpkin seeds for them and give it to them...

Anyhow, she doesn't want any pet, she is looking for the "perfect" pet for her. She wants it to be, intelligent, rather small, sociable towards humans and...

    :degu: :degu: I just can't believe it. I didn't see what all the fuss was with all the "degu" talk and today I was in the pet store buying food for my little frogs when I saw these little adorable critters! They reminded me of little squirrels without the fluffy tails. My heart was instantly...

    I went to a small petstore near me and found that they had the Sunseed food for Chinchillas. Since I can't find and Degu or Guinea Pig food without sugar, I was wondering if it would be ok just to give them this. Also, what else would I be able to give them in addition to their normal food?:gab:

    HI, Okay to start this off I'm new to all of this, but I do have a few questions. I have read on all the sites about Degus that they're not supposed to have sugar because it can give them diabeties, I've also read that to feed them, give them guinea pig or chinchilla food. Here's the thing...

    I'm having some problems with my Degus, but I'm not sure what to do. D: I have two, both are 1-2 years old. Jasper was my first, and I'm fairly certain he's male, but after getting my second Degu, it's hard to be sure. It goes like this. Jasper is my baby, and he's very sweet. But when my...
