Broken nose? URGENT!!!
« on: April 15, 2012, 11:11:06 PM »
I have a 3-4 year old female gerbil. Yesterday I noticed the hair on her nose was ruffed up. When I picked her up to get a closer look, her eye was glued shut with wat looked like eye goop and blood. The entire left side of her nose is huge. It feels swollen, and hard as if the bone is broken. I cleaned the eye with saline, and the bump is definitely painful. What should I do?  :(

I would suggest taking it to a vet, if anything to be PTS.
That's not something I'd want to live with long.
