According to the RSPCA, when it comes to pet food, our gerbils need:
- Fresh, clean drinking water constantly available, in a drinking bottle with a metal sipper tube.
- Vegetables to supplement your gerbils’ diet, including carrots, cabbage and broccoli.
- Fresh fruit such as pears and apples are great treats for gerbils too, but always feed only small quantities of fruit once or twice a week.
- A good quality, balanced diet containing all the nutrients and minerals they need.
Here at Burgess Pet Care, our Hamster, Gerbil & Mouse Complete Food can help provide a high quality diet that ensures your gerbils get the nutrients they need for a happy and playful life. Using only the best quality ingredients, these tasty gerbil nuggets prevent selective feeding where your pets only pick out the sweet high sugar elements of the diet and leave the nutritious and fibre rich elements. It tastes so good that they’ll want both. Also comprising wheat, barley, linseed and nutritional additives such as Vitamin A, Vitamin D3 and Vitamin E, which help with bone, teeth and heart health, you’ll see a fantastic improvement in your gerbil’s behaviour and attitude, and they’ll just love their new pet food too.
