Degus are among the real rodents when it comes to gnawing. They gnaw on everything. Because the teeth of the animals are always growing, the Degus always need gnawing material. The teeth will wear out to a great extent from feeding and eating hay, but many Degus quickly become bored and gnaw parts of the cage due to a lack of gnawing material.

In addition to hay that is rich in structure and fiber, a degu must also have access to gnawing wood to meet its gnawing needs. Structure-rich fibers ensure that the degu has to chew for a long time. Chewing wears down the teeth, which grow throughout life. The wear and tear of the teeth is very important for health. Teeth that do not wear well will eventually lead to dental problems, food intake problems and therefore also digestive disorders. Any existing dental problems should be treated and corrected by a veterinarian. Only by chewing large vegetable fibers for a long time do the teeth continuously rub against each other and can wear them down. Long fiber particles ensure intensive chewing and therefore not only for the necessary wear and tear of the teeth, but because the food stays in the mouth longer, it also ensures that emzymes from the saliva break down the nutrients. This eases further digestion in the gastrointestinal tract. Eating breaks (for example, due to a diet that is too energy-rich) can appear to be serious digestive disorders and should be avoided. Normally a degu eats many small meals spread over the day and is busy absorbing food for a large part of the day.

Gnawing wood is used by rodents to wear down their teeth. Because the teeth of rodents always continue to grow, they must regularly have something to gnaw so that they do not become too long and grow crooked.

It is important that the rodent material is responsible and safe, which is why we have selected a selection of rodent material especially for the Degoe that is really suitable for the animals. Because Degus are sensitive to diabetes, it is better not to use rodent material that is enriched with sugar-rich additives.

Most rodents gnaw out of boredom or out of gnawing need (teeth wear out).

It might also be nice to know that rodents mainly gnaw because they have to wear their teeth. Every rodent has this rodent need. Rodents can have their own preferences when it comes to the type of rodent material they like. One rodent will love to gnaw willow branches, while the other rodent will opt for the Linden or the Hazelnut. These specific preferences are a lot of fun and must be invented by the owners. Ordering is always easy and fast at DRD Rodent Shop!
