Thank you for all this great information! I have kept gerbils for my entire life, and all of this is really useful- especially the ear cauliflower thing. I have seen that several times. Thank you again!

Everyone in the comments, if your gerbil still has these problems then take it to the vet! These sound serious. Adrianna, stroking your gerbil against how the hair is naturally growing will of course be uncomfortable, like in any dog or cat. Please don't do that, and the problem will fix itself. It's squeaking because it's in pain, uncomfortable or is stressed, so please don't do that. Bradley, please Google this and find on several gerbil forums that it is either blood (immediately take to the vet) or porphyrin which is caused by stress. Change the bedding or fund out what is causing this. If you prove unsuccessful or think it is blood however, go to the vet immediately, thanks.
