    Bruces eye showed white discharge last night, so i'm back to putting drops in it :( Does anyone have any links to Degus health mostly eye information? i'm wanting to see if there is anything I can do about this blocked tear duct. I can keep medicating, though it's 2 to 3 times a day, and i...

    Creamy was having major problems last night. I went upstairs last night and I turned the light on, went over to the Degu cage and was talking to them. See, the doors are off of our closet so its like another part of our room and our desk is in our closet and the Degu cage is on top of that and...

    What Guinea Pig food do you use? I'm looking for a new food, I don't want it to contain anything but pellets, and they cannot have cane molasses in it. They have discontinued stocking the Living World Extruded I've been useing :( and so far know where here has anything like it :( What a bummer...
  6. Degu Discussion
    I'm wondering what everyone else feeds their Degus? Mine really enjoy this new extruded Guinea Pig Pellet I am buying from "Living World", no molases or anything in it, so far it's the best thing I can find and I'm quite happy with it. My Degu Mix... I tried the parsley flakes in the last...

    I just got back from the local Pet Shop, and i'm a bit ticked. I went in to get Guinea Pig food for the Degus, and as I pass by the tanks of small critters for sale, I see hamster Porn going on BIG TIME. So I walk up to the counter where 3 sales people are standing, one of them an older man, and...
  11. Degu Discussion
    A bit of a question here. When I feed my degus timothy hay, I notice that their cage, in the end, is much more filled with droppings than it is when they're eating alfalfa-based pellets. (This is not what they're eating, it was an experiment, simply because I noticed this). Timothy-based pellet...
  12. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    Ok its me again. I want to mix my own food because I am tired of picking corn out of their food along with fruit. I have heard that I can use a good canary food and add alfalfa pellets and milo. Is this true? If so can I just give them alfalfa hay instead of the pellets?

    I'd love to hear the Pros & Cons of the some of pets you guys have. I'm actually thinking of buying another rodent (I have 2 gerbils already) and wanted to hear some of your comments! This could include non-rodents since it would be fun to have a list of every animal. :) By the way, this is my...
  15. Degu Discussion
    Hi all, yet another question from me :) This morning, my two boys got in their worst fight yet. Usually around once a week they get into a fight. They circle each other and box with their arms. Then they swing their back end out and whack the other one with it (usually sending that one flying...

  17. Degu Discussion
    My BF and I got suckered in by their cute antics - but the advice we got at the pet store seems ALL WRONG! First, they were (and currently are, at least temporarily until next paycheck) being kept in a 10 gallon aquarium. I would like to keep them in it a little longer so that it is easier to...
  18. Degu Discussion
    hello i just recently got 2 degus and was wondering if there was any alternatives for sand baths rather than buying the chinchilla sand. im also feeding my degus rabbit pellets and wondered if that is good or bad for em. any help would be greatly appreciated.
  19. Degu Discussion
    My pet shop has stopped doing chinchilla pellets, and its thrown me into turmoil!! Normally I get chin pellets and mix them with the Vitakraft degu food. I remeber people saying about Guinea pig pellets, but i've only seen Guinea Pig nuggets in Pets at Home. same thing? should i be frantically...
  20. Guinea Pig Discussion
    :) I was at the pet store yesterday to pick up a few things and fell in love with a little black guinea pig. Hes a sweet guy. Anyways, is it normal for them to poop alot when you hold them, or is it because he's not used to me? He's pretty young and still has a little black dot on his belly...
