Blueberries are small, sweet black and blue edible berries that grow in clusters.
They are native to North America and are grown on shrubs that are related to the bilberry.
They are known for their nutritional goodness particularly as a good source of vitamin k and vitamin c.
So can gerbils eat blueberries?
Let’s take a look at their nutritional content and find out more about them.
In particular, their acidic, water, fat, phosphorus, sugar, salt and calcium content is of most interest as far as gerbils are concerned.
As you can see, blueberries contain a hint of phosphorus, calcium, fat and a little acidic content but contain a lot of sugar content.
This means that they can eat them but only on an occasional basis as they are very sweet. They should be eaten once a week at the very most, one blueberry at a time.
Too many blueberries can cause problems for a Gerbil as their stomach’s cannot deal with the content that it has.
