Get Pet Questions Answered by Pet Experts
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.
Oh, no. Is he breathing?
Please do. That will help us to determine if he's passed. The natural life span of a gerbil is about 4 years of age, so having made it to 6 is quite the feat.
If he's passed, are you intended to bury him? Have him cremated?
Anything paper would be fine, such as a small tea box, butter box or similar.
That would be perfect. I am so sorry for your loss.
It wouldn't hurt, especially if he seems bummed about the loss of his companion.
That sounds like a plan. Often a change in routine and cage setup can change a pet's demeanor.
You're welcome. I am very sorry for the untimely passing of your companion.
