I've found a place that sell them, but they are kinda pricey. I am surprised no UK gerbil website out there has linked them. They seem to be sold mainly for degus and chins, but could certianly be used for gerbils. The cage has wooden flooring as well so that is tempting me if I plan to get jirds.
Hi ya, although they seem to be very well made from the pics, I personally would not pay out for something like that. I would buy the material myself and have a go- even if it fails a few times I think it would still be profitable to make your own. Also I would give you something to do for a couple of nights- would be faster that waiting for him to build it- it says he makes them to order. good luck with it.
gerbilysqueak: also my beddin g couldn't be whats making her sneeze since it has no dust in it. Should I switch to Carefresh or Corncob?

ffs: carefresh is dusty. my gerbil is sniffly on and off and also sneezes. i think it is bad breeding to be honest.

gerbilysqueak: I never knew Carefresh was dusty with my past gerbils they've had no problem with it, I guess it depends on the gerbil really. and I don't really understand your question on breeding, are you saying its bad to breed or the bedding is bad to use for it?

ffs: gerbilysqueak no i mean my gerbil is from a line of petshop gerbils who are unlikely to have good genes as they are bred for colour above all else.

bribanabonana: hey every one I was wondering if any one knew if it was safe or not to let my gerbil dig in dirt from out side??
Jun 11, 2013 11:29:13 GMT -8
Laurerz: Hey Bribana, I'd say not. You never know how safe the dirt from outside is, what with all sorts of chemicals in gardens and bug stuff etc.
Jun 11, 2013 15:51:44 GMT -8
ffs: bribanabonana i know you can give them compost, but as far as i am aware it is best to sterilise it (although this might be wrong). you also need to make sure it doesn't have anything added to it (like fertilizers). not sure if peat based or not is best?

rodentsrule: bribanabonana, you would need some nice, clean, fresh dirt. Well. I don't know because my gerbil digs in his bedding. No chemicals in dirt. Gerbils originate from the desert , so I don't know.

ninestone: Maybe some play sand? You might want to sift it and then dampen it to keep the dust down.

jon: Hi Gerbil forum girls/guys, has anyone had experience of giving antibiotics to their geibil?

angsgerbils: I'm starting to breed gerbils does anyone have any advice
Jun 14, 2013 21:05:08 GMT -8
Feeona: angsgerbils Read as much as you can about gerbils and breeding, google it and read as many websites as possible to get a full spectrum of information. Make sure you can find homes for your gerbils if you`re not keeping them.

gerbilfan: I give antibiotics to pups with respiratory infections. Your vet. you can use Ornacycline or a prescribed medication from your vet.

gerbilwhiskers: Hi jon I gave antibiotics to an adult female with an infectes scratched nose.
Jun 19, 2013 9:43:24 GMT -8
gerbilwhiskers: I gave the prescribed liquid antibiotic in drinking water, 1ml in a bottle. She just drank it as normal and infection cleared with no problems.
