Things to remember
Lifting & handling
Handle your gerbil gently -- scoop her up in both hands and hold her with cupped hands so she feels safe and secure. Remember to never lift or grip her by her tail.
Your gerbil's front teeth never stop growing, so she needs lots of healthy things to chew on like treat sticks and chews.
To prevent tail injury, gerbils should only run on a solid-surface exercise wheel.
Choose a fortified diet appropriate for gerbils.
Your gerbil needs a well-ventilated home with a solid floor, large enough for a food dish and water bottle and a hiding area (if one isn't built in). There should be plenty of room for all cage accessories, and for her to move around freely.
