So can gerbils eat vegetables?
Yes they can but it depends on what it is as to whether they can eat it. Always check the vegetable before you feed it to your gerbil.
It’s important that the vegetable that is given to the gerbil is not high in acids, phosphorus, fat and is low in water content.
This is because they cannot process these nutrients like humans can and they will be sick if they have too many foods that contain them.
It is best to check out the individual vegetable before feeding it to them, rather than taking a chance.
