Gerbil Treats

There are a large variety of gerbil treats sold in pet shops and most gerbils relish these. Although these are designed for gerbils, they are designed as treats and should not be fed in large quantities to your gerbil. The overfeeding of treats which are high in sugar could lead to your gerbil becoming obese.

Other treats that can be fed to your gerbil include:

  • Biscuits
  • Boiled Potatoes
  • Bread (fresh or stale)
  • Breakfast Cereals (low fat)
  • Cheese (small amounts occasionally as fattening)
  • Currents
  • Dog Biscuits
  • Egg (scrambled or boiled)
  • Mealworms
  • Raisins
  • Sultanas
  • Toast

Never feed a gerbil any of the following:

  • Chocolate
  • Garlic*
  • Onions
  • Rabbit Mix (containing antibiotic ingredients)
  • Raw Kidney Beans
  • Sweets
  • Toffee
