What can I do to keep the brother from being depressed and dying. Thank you. February 3 at 3:51 pm #665285 DashParticipant Make sure he’s eating and drinking. Give him lots of attention. It’s important that eh stays hydrated and continues to eat. Give him lots to do to keep him busy. I’m sorry bout your gerb. <3 Author Posts Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
