I just noticed that Optimus has diahhrea. He was totally fine last night. I started giving him rose hips, shredded wheat and mazuri on Thursday (only a very small amount). Could this be the problem. I'm thinking of taking him to the vet right now. Any ideas?
i am in the process of getting a house ready for 3 degus and i would love to see all of your homes you have bought or made or whatever and also what you are feeding them and toys for them and any recomendatiuons you may have. thanks-melony
yesterday in adn atempt to get them more used to me i offered them treat of a rasin for each of them they took them right from my hand... they seemed to really like them...what other treats can i hand feed them to get them to more used to me..
I can't remember if wheat is good or bad or neutral for degus? Skippy loves Wheaties cereal. I thought it was a good alternative to nuts and seeds when it comes to treat. 3/4 cup only has 4 grams of sugar so I figured it's not too sweet for him if I only give him a few flakes at a time. I just...
I purchased some alfalfa and timothy hay cubes and was wondering if these are as good as just regular hay. The hay I have for Optimus now, he throws everywhere and only likes certain parts of the hay. Can I only give him these cubes now or should I give him both?
My mazuri and tons of toys...
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?

Our year has started out terribly. As I was handing out shredded wheat to the chillas, I found one of the "babies" passed away.
I am at a loss and am completely devastated. We moved into this house in 2003, and almost every year since we've lost a pet. That year, we lost a kit. In 2004 we lost...

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:

I know carrots are considered a "sweet" vegetable, and have 2g of sugar for a serving (14 baby carrots I think) I guess I have a couple questions. How much sugar is too much? Can I give them whole grain oatmeal (and I mean a few flakes) w/ 1g of sugar? How often are these to be given.
