When most people think about pets the first thing that comes to mind is a dog or perhaps a cat. Naturally, both are loved by millions around the world and are tightly integrated into our society. While there is no question that the cat and dog are the most loved and loyal of the entire animal species, there are other pet’s that are just as adorable and loveable that also make great household companions and friends for many individuals and families all across the world.

The Gerbil is a gentile, docile animal who loves to be held and played with, and they also seldom bite which is great for families who are looking for a play friend for small children. Also, unlike hamsters, Gerbils are active during the day time, allowing for plenty of time for playing and cuddling.

Gerbils are easy to find in many pet stores. As a matter of fact, Petware House in Fort Wayne offers a large collection of cute Gerbils, ready for their new home. Although they are great pet’s to have alone, we suggest pairing them up. Therefore if possible take two home. Gerbils have demonstrated that they live longer, healthier lives when living together.

Gathering sources for the Gerbils home is a relatively easy process. Although many suggest a mesh wire cage, we don’t suggest this because mesh wiring may hurt your pet. Instead, consider a glass aquarium with a minimum of ten gallon capacity. Wire mesh can be used to cover the top. Ensure the housing is kept away from areas in your home where there is to much draft and keep him away from sunlight. You should also ensure that you use comfortable, absorbent bedding and avoid using cedar or pine shavings as they may be harmful to other animals.

Be sure to provide your Gerbil with plenty of shredded paper towels and hay so they can borrow themselves into a corner – they love doing this. In addition you can also throw in some left over cardboard tubes, from paper towels and toilet paper roles which your pet will use to borrow themselves and tunnel through, which they love. Whatever you do, don’t put items, such as toys, or plastic into their cage.

Wondering what your pet Gerbil should be eating to maintain a healthy lifestyle and happy pet? No problem. For the most part, their diet is a naturally complex one and is healthy to begin with so this makes it a little easier. He or she will love to nibble on grains, seeds, pellets and dried vegetables. This type of diet mix is usually readily available, right here at Pet Warehouse. Its also good to offer your pet small amounts of fresh vegetables to your gerbils every day. They will immensely enjoy Broccoli, Turnips, Lettuces and carrots. Be sure to make fresh, clean water available to your pet at all times.

Provide your Gerbil with a proper living environment as they will not live well in a small cage designed for mice or a hamster. Gerbils are known for gnawing through many materials such as wood and plastic so it’s wise to choose carefully. In addition they will need a lot of space to burrow down into a thick layer of bedding or substrate. We encourage the use of a large metal or glass enclosure. They should be well equipped with shelving, tubes and a lot of materials for burrowing. Here at Petware House we have many proper enclosures to choose from in addition substrate, food and much more. Don’t hesitate to contact us and we will be pleased to be of assistance.

Choosing from a litter of pups can be challenging as most first timers pick out their pet based on color or picking the one with the cutest face. Instead, try choosing the right pet based on the healthiest coat and inquisitiveness personality.

Similar to the Chinchillas bathing ritual. Your gerbil should be cleaned in a dust bath, rather than soap and water. The Gerbil will take care of the rest of the upkeep. It’s also a natural instinct for Gerbils to come together in groups for the purpose of grooming.

A final item to consider for your gerbils care is an exercise wheel. The will get quite a bit of use out of this and is a requirement for exercise. An exercise wheel with a solid base is a acceptable. If it has wire slats if will trap the Gerbils paws and tail, which may lead to serious injury.
