The Right Home Temperature for your Gerbil

Did you know that gerbils are most comfortable when the air temperature is between 65 and 75 degrees F? That’s right. If it’s too cold or too hot your gerbil could be uncomfortable or even get sick. Generally, 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, call your animal hospital Anderson, IN immediately. Your gerbil may need to be seen in the office right away. To know more, click this link:
