It could be under stress, I don't know. Every animal is different. My dog had a few grey hairs after the first year I had him. I wouldn't worry about it unless it's hair is falling out.

Gerbils live for 3-5 years. It's getting older.

Daisey is right. Your gerbil may have been more than a few months old when you got it, so if you've had it a year, then yes it's getting old. Like people and other animals, many mammals do turn grey with age.


I have 2 dachshunds. One will be 12 years old ths April. She barely has any of her red coloring left on her. It started turning grey a couple of years ago and now her whole face and all four paws are grey.
My other dog will be 9 this March and he's beginning to turn too around his lips.

So don't worry, just make his life as easy and as happy as you can for the time you have left with him.
