This beautiful pair are Liam and Noah, they came into our care as their previous owners could no longer keep them. They are shy boys but are very friendly once they know you and they have been used to being handled. These boys are looking for a nice retirement home to spend their days with lots of room and enrichment to keep them busy.

Diet: Degu’s can be fed on a complete mix diet or a complete nugget diet which should consist of all the nutrients they need.

Hay should also be a main part of a Degu’s diet so fresh hay should always be available. Degu’s can only drink bottled mineral water in their water bottle, they cannot have tap water.
Company: Degu’s are very sociable creatures and very much like living with others. Here Degu’s are always homed as pairs or we pair up with an existing Degu.

They love to climb and run around at a very fast pace, so daily outings from there accommodation is necessary to provide them with exercise. Their accommodation should have plenty of things to chew and climb. If you need any ideas for enrichment please ask.
