If your gerbil has white stuff in his poop, should you bring him to a vet? If so, what small animal vets do you recommend?

Hello,
Hard to tell from the photo,,,Gerbils urinate very infrequently, but when they do as it dries it can turn white…However, if you are seeing white IN the hard pelleted poo, then you may have parasites. You can take a sample in to your vet for them to do a fecal test to see if this may be the problem as a first step. But, as Dr. Magnifico said, if you think your pet needs a vet, take him in .
Hope your pet is doing well again soon!
