My gerbil isn’t feeling well and has grainy stuff in his poop. Is there anything I can do to make him feel better until I can bring him to the vet?

Just keep him warm and comfortable and take him to a vet as soon as possible. Definitely bring a poop sample to the vet with you.

HI Matilda,
If you think that your gerbil isn’t well, just keep him (or her) in a clean cage, with access to food and water. And when you can, get to a vet. Take along a fecal sample too so that your vet can see it and test it for parasites.
Good luck!
