TOPIC: Advice please, degu death

Advice please, degu death 2 weeks ago #1

Our degus were brothers, we've had them for years. They both appeared fine this morning but I've just found one of them dead. I'm aware they should be kept in pairs and I'm really worried about my remaining boy... he's old and I can tell he's already very sad and knows his brother is gone. What's the best way forward - I'd be really grateful if anybody could advise.

Hi dobson, i'm sorry to hear of your news. We used to have two. We lost one over 3 years ago. I was quite surprised when I read about how they sink into depression etc.We are always interacting (he was very badly treated when we took them in) and now he will accept being lifted up! bless. look after your other one, lots of love, attention, preening from you to him.(grooming).

look forward to the many happy years you have to look forward to!
