    Chins teeth

    My chinchilla does not want to take his syringe food. I have to force it in his mouth. I feel his inside mouth which was infected from his teeth is still the culprit. He is on metacam and reglan because his poops are very small and few. What is the appetite stimulant? Thanks

    My chins are not eating the timothy hay

    Thanks for the help. If I pick up a bale from a local hay supplier do I have to clean it before use? Or just pick through it to make sure there isn't any foreign material in the bale. Thanks for your help!
