Gerbil Treats

Giving your gerbils gerbil treats can make them happy and help with things like taming and acclimation, but you’ll need to be careful about what kind of treats you give, how much and how often. Chewy carries a great selection of gerbil treats for sale, including fruit and nut treats, yogurt treats, crunchy biscuits, hay treats for gerbils and more.

Natural treats like veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds and hay make great treats for gerbils and provide a healthy nutritional boost, but be sure to give them in moderation. Treats of any kind given in large quantities or too frequently can cause stomach upsets or weight gain, so limit these to just a few times a week. Fresh fruits and vegetables are some of the best gerbil treats and can help add variety and nutrients to their diet, but you need to make sure they get eaten quickly or they will wilt and add moisture to the cage. Try giving your gerbils small pieces of things like bananas, apples, carrots and cucumbers and see what they prefer. Some gerbils also enjoy occasional treats of oats, millet, cereal or pasta.

You can find packaged hay mixes and twists on Chewy.com, as well as dried fruit, nut and veggie treats that make giving your gerbils snacks convenient and easy. We offer tasty natural biscuit treats made from hay, fruits and veggies, too, plus a variety of treat mixes with lots of delicious snacks mixed together. Yogurt treats for gerbils can make a delicious special occasion or training treat, but give these sparingly as they can be rich and lead to unwanted weight gain.

Gerbil chew toys made of softwood sticks or hay perform triple duty as snacks, toys and dental care aids, or you can try giving your lil’ pal gerbil toys that dispense treats and gerbil food to make treating a fun game. Scattering treats in gerbil bedding will trigger natural foraging instincts, or try hiding different snacks throughout your gerbil habitat for your pets to find. You can also try mixing dry natural treats in with the food in your gerbil food bowls for a very special meal. Chewy carries all the gerbil supplies you need to keep your pets well-fed and treated, plus all the toys, wheels and tunnels they’ll need to work off those extra calories and stay in shape.
