Welcome to Deguworld!! There is so much to see and learn here and we welcome you to look around. Feel free to ask us any degu related questions in the main forum. Please use this shoutbox for chat only :)
pthurg: Really fancy a Black Forest Gateau, haven't had one for years. Sorry, felt I had to get that out. :) Jun 24, 2014 15:10:32 GMT
confused: My degu is in trouble, she has not eaten for 2 days and has trouble breathing. Vet has given her some injections, antibiotics and steroids. They kick in after a few hours, and she calms down, or else she is just exhausted. The vet did not check her teeth, Jul 2, 2014 20:15:46 GMT
confused: The vet's a different 1 each day, just focused on her teeth. How can i get her to eat or at least drink? Jul 2, 2014 20:16:39 GMT
confused: WOO, I know your thread was a few months back, but how are your Degu's doing? Jul 5, 2014 20:57:38 GMT
cheesecakeyum: Sneaky goos just nicked my kitchen towel to make a nest in their cage. Wondered where it had disappeared off to... Jul 19, 2014 14:20:56 GMT
rhi123: Hi. I work at newport RSPCA Animal Centre South Wales and we have numerous degus in our care desperately looking for new forever homes. If anyone feels they are able to help give good homes to our little degus please contact the centre on 0300 123 0744 Jul 20, 2014 13:04:16 GMT
animalgoddess62: Not sure how old your appeal for the kitten is but it's a shame it needs to be the only kitty. I have 6 of them. 3sisters, 2sisters then there's Mischief odd ball out. Jul 22, 2014 19:13:44 GMT
animalgoddess62: Shame about all the abandoned degus. I have 4 sisters and one male not related, or at least I don't think so haha???? Jul 22, 2014 19:16:42 GMT
nuzleg: Hi I'm new too these forums and have 2 goos called nuzzle and oleg, hence the name xD Aug 7, 2014 16:52:55 GMT
hoofn42: Hi From Virginia, my Best Buds are Diesel, Diego, Rosemary and her plus 7! :D Aug 29, 2014 14:58:07 GMT
deguconvert: Just have to moan and groan!! It snowed up in the north end of my city yesterday, and snow is in the forecast for early next week!!! NOOOOO!!! No, no, no, no, NO!! And my summer tan is already fading! SO not a winter passionate woman. Sept 5, 2014 1:14:19 GMT
angelblayde: hi . im new to the forum. ive had a litter of degus for years. now become grand daddy to 11 pups. i need to find out if you allow me to place 4 up for adoption as we are over whelmed. they are pups still so need a lil time . i live in preston xx Sept 7, 2014 17:53:24 GMT
Kins: Snow...already?! I love snow, but it's only September! Sept 9, 2014 10:39:46 GMT
Kins: Hi and welcome, please feel free to post your pups up for adoption (as long as they are not 'for sale') in the Adoption Zone. Sept 9, 2014 10:41:38 GMT
7degus: Hello, I have a question... I feed my degus once a day, so that they are not active at night, this has worked for the past 2 years, but for 3 months they have started to ping the bars of their cage, this means I am struggling to sleep... any suggestions?:) Sept 26, 2014 15:56:20 GMT
raggedyann: Hello I am new to this site and am also a new degu owner. I have had chinchillas for 7-9 years now, but just got my first two degus a couple of weeks ago. They are both girls and their names are Ginger and Cinnamon. :) Sept 28, 2014 21:40:37 GMT
klbishop: fab names Oct 4, 2014 16:27:05 GMT
jenjen: Hi, I am a new degu owner as we adopted three boys Huey, duewy and lewie from the rspca. I have many animals and also use to keep ferrets but I can't seem to find anywhere what the lowest temperature a room should be for a degu? Nov 6, 2014 7:50:19 GMT
Jarad: Hi guys, I was planning on making a thread for this question, but it's simple and I just noticed this shoutbox. Would a former sugar-glider cage such as this ($_20.JPG) be suitable for degus? Nov 28, 2014 0:50:06 GMT
Maravilla: If the floor area is smaller than 100x50 cm it would be too small. Besides (when the floor area is big enough), you have to add several full levels. Several smaller doors are better than just one big as degus can escape pretty fast. Nov 28, 2014 8:13:33 GMT
