Degu Surgery

We don’t want Degu babies, so we neutered our male Degu, Luis.  However, we thought we might be too late with the surgery – AND WE WERE!  Florencia was already pregnant by the time we neutered Luis.

Take a look at the photos below from the neutering, and tomorrow we’ll post some photos or videos of the 6 baby Degus that were born on May 23!

      Some of the pups will stay here and the others will head out to good homes.
