    Balding is expanding? Again

    Hi! Sadly no, his hair is still balding and picking at it. I’m trying to save up because everywhere I call they charge up to $200 just for an appointment.

    Balding is expanding? Again

    Thank you! Yea I just want to make sure there’s nothing to be concerned about and it’s better to be safe than sorry. I’ll be checking out those vets when they open tomorrow, thank you!

    Balding is expanding? Again

    Hi everybody, not too long ago I posted a thread where my chin Minato started to have a bald spot. I’d say it was the size of a penny but now I’ve noticed that it’s the size of three quarters put together. I provided a video down below. I started noticing that he does scratch/ pull on that area...

    Help! It’s been two months and I still can’t touch my chinchilla.

    I’ve had my chin since March of this year. He’s 2 and a half years old but I’ve had him for 6 months. He’s not a hyper chin, he likes to sleep even though I buy him toys or a wheel. But the thing about Minato is that he doesn’t like to be held. He likes being pet but sometimes he gets bothered...

    Tossing Food

    Nope but he sure does annoy me in the night😂 He loves to jump on the bed and get near my plants even though he knows he’ll get in trouble for it! I have a table next to my bed and next to it would be some Pothos hanging long enough that he would reach them. But ever since I figured he reached...

    Tossing Food

    Yes, I built his cage to be around 6ft tall. He has a cage inside my room but I don’t have a door in his cage because he loves running around my room and checking on me during random times.

    Tossing Food

    He’s doing good! And you’re totally right. Each and every night he digs in his food and throws it on the ground loud enough for me to hear it since we share a room. Later he jumps on the bed and wakes me up almost every other hour just to make a statement😂 But he’s doing well, just making me...

    Tossing Food

    Thanks for the response and I apologize for the late response! But I totally agree. Not really a concern I just thought it’d be fun to know if it was mainly a personality type thing

    Tossing Food

    Hi guys I just came here with a question. It’s not a concern at all, I just wanted to see if anybody else had a chin who does this or maybe why they do this? My chin Minato is pretty lazy and somewhat has a dramatic personality. When he’s eating, at times he grabs his food from the bowl and...

    Question about getting new chin

    You’re right. Neither am I in a rush to find him a playmate I was just curious for future times. I give him attention almost every hour of the day (besides when im sleeping) so its not as necessary to find another buddy. My condolences for your Angel chin, I know he’s watching you guys from...

    Question about getting new chin

    I was thinking of taking out the cages but I could only take out one for the reason that Minatos cage is too big to take out (cant be taken apart and is wooden). I didnt think it would be a good idea to just take one out so I just left it as it was. None of them were spayed or neutured. And if I...

    Question about getting new chin

    Hi Amethyst! I want to start off by saying I got a female and male. (1) I got a female just because the lady who sold me her was in a rush to give her up and (2) I didnt think it’d cause much trouble. I researched and got opinions from some vets in Los Ángeles and visited some websites. The...

    Question about getting new chin

    Hi everyone! I have a 2 year old chin, Minato, who’s been with me since March . I’ve noticed that he likes to be lazy most of the time (I’ve bought an appropriate sized running wheel that he hasn’t touched at all) and I thought getting him a buddy would be good for him. Going back to a couple of...

    Chinchilla Bad Spot CONCERNED

    Hi Amethyst! Thanks for the response. It might be that because I have a neighbor who has a dog and I see that he gets startled sometimes. Quick question: Should I expect fur to grow back in a couple weeks? Or what should I expect?

    Minato

    Hi this is Minato, he’s a chinchilla. He doesn’t play too much, but he does love to be pet and sometimes get treats when allowed. He has a serious attitude but truly stole my heart. He’s very calm although he loves to climb!

    Chinchilla Bad Spot CONCERNED

    Hi everyone I really hope you guys can help me. I’ve had Minato since March and I’ve never noticed this problem. He has a bald spot near his leg, but there’s no rash or bruising that I know of. There’s a picture below. I noticed the feeling yesterday but when I checked, I didn’t see the bald...

    Hi there, I’m Jessica and the owner of my chin Minato😊 I just want to say in advance, im not expert in chinchillas but I do have one so I could give you some advice from my experience.
