Pistachios are a member of the cashew family and are a big favorite as a snack food.
So can gerbils eat pistachios at all?
Let’s take a look at their nutritional data and find out more.
In particular, their acidic, water, sugar, salt, phosphorus, calcium, and fat content is of most interest as far as gerbils are concerned.
As you can see pistachios contain a lot of phosphorus, calcium, acidic content and fat.
This means that they are not healthy for gerbils to eat.
One or two on a very occasional basis wont hurt them but they contain too much fat, phosphorus and acidic content to be fed to them regularly as they will make them ill.
They will eat as much as you give them though as they absolutely adore them, so do take care if you are feeding them to your gerbil.
