How to Know if Your Home is the Right Temperature for your Gerbil
Experts recommend keeping your gerbil in an atmosphere that is between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Too cold or too hot can make your gerbil uncomfortable and it could make him sick. As a general rule of thumb, if your home is comfortable for you then it’s most likely comfortable for your gerbil. Just take extra precautions in making sure your gerbil’s cage is not next to a heating vent or A/C vent as this will give him too much hot or cold air. In the winter, your gerbil would probably do well in a sunny room especially if your house is naturally on the cold side. In the summer, keep him in a dim room and away from windows that draw in heat. If you see your gerbil shaking or shivering, give your vet Aurora, CO a call and schedule a checkup to ensure your gerbil is OK.
