Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Can you share a video of what you are seeing?
There is an attachment function on the page that should allow you to post pictures and video. You can also use websites like tinypic.com and youtube.com to upload pictures and video respectively. Once this is done, a set of links will appear. You can then post the link back and I can access them.
This looks to either be nerve damage keeping him from being able to bring his leg into the correct position, or a break. He will need to be examined to be treated and x-rays will likely be needed to determine if there is a break. Do you have a veterinarian that already sees your gerbils?
If you would like me to look, please send your city, state and zipcode and I'll see what I can find.
Let me know if I can help further.
