    Soft Baby Chin Stool

    I remember when our baby chin was little (not as young as yours) and she got really soft goo poo 💩 is how I would describe it. Not smelly, but not firm, as it should have been. I posted on here and thank God Amethyst replied right away. She advised me to take away the pellets and to only...

    I wish that it was $260.00 here in Canada 🇨🇦. The best price here is at Pet Valu for $349.99 plus (13%) tax, which brought the price up to $395.48. Considering that our baby chinchee will hopefully live to 20 years old, it’s an investment in her best interest. What has been frustrating was...

    Chinchilla Dust Baths

    Hi everyone, My daughter and I were really tired the other day and didn’t empty out the dust in our chinchillas bath 🛀. When my daughter let her out for some supervised free play time, Tay Tay went into her bath and rolled around in it. She hadn’t gone poop 💩 in it from the day before, so the...

    Excellent tips, many thanks 😊!!! i just ordered her cage an hour ago and am so glad that I called ☎️ customer service at Pet Valu because they didn’t have any left of the double cage, in their warehouse currently. A wonderful lady named Natasha helped me find one at a store in Oshawa that’s...

    Thanks everybody 💞💞💞 for helping me on my decision on a cage for our girl 🐾. I’m going to be ordering it later today and because of Ontario being in full lockdown 🔐, I’ll need to see if Pet Valu will deliver it to our home 🏡 instead of curb-side pick up. They only have them in their warehouse...

    Thanks Amethys, I really appreciate the links for both places. I’m thrilled that Flower Town Chinchillas is about 40-45 minutes away from where I live and Sunny Meadows is 30 minutes north of my home 🏡 In Barrie, Ontario. We’ve got a fair bit of family in Barrie, so when I’ve saved up enough...

    Thanks for your honest response and especially over the Chin Spin wheel. We just had ours delivered a couple of weeks ago and we cannot put it in her current cage because the walls of the bottom of her cage taper inward and the wheel won’t move. I’ll be ordering the Ferret Nation cage tomorrow. 😉

    Thank you so much for your response. Being that she’s going to be a year old at the end of February, it stands to reason that she’s going to grow bigger and stronger. Sounds like the Ferret Nation will be a more durable choice in the long run. Tay Tay loves chin scratches and I never thought...

    Thank you 🙏🏻 for your response and your insights. She’s our first chinny and so this is all new to us. I will be adding a few ledges to her new cage. She currently has 2 and her hammock, which she loves 💗. She has also grown much, much stronger and when she wants our attention, uses her back...

    Hi 🙋🏻‍♀️ everyone, Our baby chinchilla Tay Tay is now 8 months old and when we got her she was 3 months old and small. Because of blessed lockdown, we bought a cage that was for a guinea pig but fairly tall. Now that she’s grown quite a lot, we’re going to get her a new cage better suited for...

    Our 7 month old Chinchilla is having very soft poos

    I will be giving her Alfalfa hay on occasion because it’s a richer hay for their digestive tract but even after speaking with the vet tech at Guelph Animal Hospital 🏥, she advised me to keep away from it for a bit. I always have applewood sticks, a grinding stone and wooden chew blocks for her...

    Our 7 month old Chinchilla is having very soft poos

    So happy 😃 to report that our baby chinchee Tay Tay is doing so much better today. Spent most of the day calling everywhere to find a veterinarian who deals with chinchillas and would let me bring her to a clinic to check her over. Once told many of the clinics that I had a chinchilla, they...

    Our 7 month old Chinchilla is having very soft poos

    Thank you Amethyst. That was the one that the breeder recommended so I wasn’t going to argue or question it, but I now see that it’s probably causing this problem with her. I will get the Oxbow tomorrow. Does the same method of switching food for a chinchilla the same as it would be for a...

    Our 7 month old Chinchilla is having very soft poos

    Hi everyone, Our little chinchilla Tay Tay, is having very soft poops this evening. At first they were like goop plops (couple of hours ago) but now they’re starting to look more formed but smear if she steps in them. I’ve had to clean up her backside and back legs a couple of times. She’s...

    Thank you for the information on requesting extra sets of bearings when I order my Chin Spin. 😉

    Chin Spin Wheels

    Thank you so much for the info. I saw other ones that were simply all aluminum and even though the looked nice and safe, all that ran through my mind was that they would be very, very noisy. I‘ll definitely order directly from this company. I know that they’ve had to close down during...
