Q: My three-year-old pet gerbil recently started to become ‘wobbly’. She also shakes at times and seems unwell. What could the reason be?
A: I’m afraid to say that sadly it does sound as if your gerbil is nearing the end of his life – they really don’t live much longer than two to three years. If you think that he has a poor quality of life, you should take him to see your veterinarian.
