HELP! my gerbil !

i had her for 1-2 years now and im really nervos. She is really skinny and she dont have a wheel to workout. But her sister passed months ago. Im really nervous. Is she dying?

Report as

it could be stress from her sister dying, try getting another gerbil. they're social so she could be too lonely and sad to eat

FEED HER. FEED HER ALOT. that poor thing might need meat on her bones or to visit the doctor... I had a hampster who became the most skinny thing and i brought her to petco and it was stress. Its because the hampster she was caged with. And they got seperated so thats why. And i would buy her a buddy to hangout with...

gerbils live spans are about 1 to 3 years. most gerbils don't live until they are one so your lucky have the better one. I'm no vet but it sounds like your gerbil's life might be comming to an end. I suggest taking it to an excotic vet If your willing to pay money for it.

she's probably depressed, my mum's dog did the same thing when my dad's dog died
