Can Gerbils Eat Pears?

Pears are a popular fruit that is eaten around the world inamy different countries.

So can gerbils eat pears?

Yes they can but only in very small amounts on an occasional basis. This is because pears are quite sweet and not good for gerbils to eat on a regular basis.

Too much sweet food, even fruit, is not good for gerbils as their bodies just can’t deal with sugar like we can.

So one or two chunks at a time chopped up into pieces that they can hold in their paws comfortably will be sufficient for them. Make sure the stem and any seeds are stripped away. The skin is fine for them to eat.
