Gerbils & Hamsters/Gerbil bedding

Question
I have two gerbils and I would like to know if I can use the mulch bedding for crabs for the gerbils as well?

Answer
LaRonda,
It depends on what kind of mulch it is.  is it pine?  That can make gerbils have allergies.  Whatever you do dont use cedar.  that can mess them up.  In my opinion i think you would be better off buying bedding especially made for gerbils and hamsters.

I can not answer questions on why your Hamster or Gerbil died. Obviously I do not know, so I will not answer that question. If you suspect your pet is sick, please consult a vet. I can answer questions on your Hamster's or Gerbil's feeding/dietary needs, health, dental issues, breeding, cage setup, getting started, what you should look out for, diseases, and if I don't know the answer I will look it up and give you an answer. I will try to answer all questions right away.

Experience

I have had a great experience with Hamsters and Gerbils. I have had over 10 Gerbils and I have had over 15 hamsters. I still to this very day have Gerbils and Hamsters. I breed them too.

I am going to college right now to be a veternarian.

Past/Present Clients
I used to have a website where you could ask questions on pets and I would answer them, but then I found out about this site and I thought it would be fun and cool to do.
I also have put accurate information on wikipedia about breeding hamsters and gerbils.
