Urine Scald in Black Mongolian Gerbils


If you own a Black Mongolian or other type of gerbil make sure you keep his cage clean on a routine basis in order to avoid illness or discomfort for your gerbil. It’s important to keep your Black Mongolian gerbil’s cage clean and dry. If you’re not sure how to clean your gerbil’s cage or how often just ask your vet for his recommendations. In most cases, you should clean your gerbil’s cage once a week and remove wet spots daily to prevent urine scald. Urine scald occurs when gerbils are left to sit in their own wet bedding for long periods of time. Their bodies tend to soak up the wet or the urine, which can cause irritation, inflammation, and even burns on the underside and private areas of the gerbil. If this happens to your gerbil, call your vet Marietta, GA. He may prescribe a topical cream to soothe the gerbil’s skin and relieve pain. Visit this website to know more.
