Hi, was just wondering if a degu has broken a hind leg or hip can they stand and eat or how to they eat? My degu has injured its back leg this evening,she's not putting any weight on it, we will bring her to vet first thing in the morning but just concerned because we have her out of the cage and she's just curled up on a hot water bottle on the bed and when i tried to give her a treat she refused it....very unusual for her..so thats why i'm wondering? any help appreciated

Do you have a product called Critical Care in Ireland? If so, feed that by syringe. If not, grind up some pellets and carrots (to make it tasty) in a blender and add water to make a slurry that can be fed by syringe. You really need to keep her digestive tract moving and you also don't want her to become dehydrated.
