This illness just appeared, full blown, all of a sudden that very night?

On another thread you said you didn't want to spend money on a vet for a pet that cost only 5$.

How old are you Kibbles? Are you a child?

Did you read where I told you that 3 males together may fight, and to separate the one with the scabs?

How did you "get rid of" him?

We noticed! You should start another thread becuase this one is not fitting. The answer to your question is YES your gerbal has something wrong with it IT IS DEAD! There you go I helped. RIP, poor little guy! :mad:

That is just cruel and mean. A pet that costs 5$ is still a pet, no mater how cheap it is, or even if it is free. If you have bought a pet, it is your responsibility to make sure it doesn't suffer and die because of USELESS OWNERS!!! :mad: People who don't have the money to go to a vet shouldn't get a pet.
