Octodon Degu

Learn More



Degus are sugar intolerant and are prone to diabetes. A commercial hamster/gerbil mix is therefore unsuitable. A base mix of Chinchilla pellets (not mix as this may contain sugary dried fruits) together with a decent guinea pig mix is recommended. Hay should also be provided, either in a hay rack or in bowls. Water should always be available. Fresh fruit can be offered on occasion.
