vegetable list

Vegetables are important for gerbils, so should be offered on a daily basis.

Don't feed too many cruciferous vegetables as this can cause digestive issues

Always introduce new vegetables slowly to ensure that your gerbils tolerate it well.

For gerbils new to vegetables, start with carrots & fennel as they are easily digested.
