This Rodipet® food's composition is based on a number of research expeditions to the natural habitats of wild gerbils in Central Asia. There, we investigated what types of food would be available to wild gerbils during various seasons. We combined the knowledge gained from those expeditions with the latest findings of research into the nutritional needs of pet rodents to develop this recipe. Carefully chosen delicious herbs, quality grains & seeds and tasty roots and vegetables from organic sources remind us of the wide steppes of Central Asia that are the native habitats of Meriones unguiculatus gerbils.

Feed roughly 1½ heaped measuring spoons (this equals 1½ heaped tablespoons) and one insect of your choice per animal per day. Fresh hay and water should always be available, too. As these recommendations are based on average observations your pets' individual needs may vary slightly, so if possible without major disturbance, please check weekly (otherwise whenever you do a full cage clean) how much food your gerbils have stashed away in their tunnels: if the stores are, figuratively, overflowing, please reduce the amount of food slightly; if there is hardly anything stored your pets probably need a little more food. When looking after a pregnant female or parents feeding babies, please allow half a measuring spoon of food and one additional insect per day.
How long will one tub last?
This tub contains approximately 90 measuring spoons worth of food, which lasts on average 3-4 weeks for two gerbils
