One of our gerbils, Valo, is sick. He started to keep his head tilted to the left so we took him to the vet. His eye also started to look bad. The vet said it was little bit odd combination of symptoms but they both might be caused by an infection. Infection in the middle ear can cause problems with the balance. Of course there is also a possibility that it’s a tumor. Even though the situation is not looking good, Valo is very energetic and he is eating very well.This is why we decided to try antibiotics. Now we just have to wait and see if the medicine helps.
Some good news too: Mimosa (gerbil) gave birth to five babies last week! By the way, Valo is the father.
