    Chinchilla not himself

    We took Hershey back in and he got the complete work up. EKG, Ultra sound, bloodwork all came back good. But he did show some Spondylitis on his spine along with the arthritis in his hind legs. He is on gabapentin twice a day and metacam once a day. Hopefully he will adjust to the gabapentin...

    Penis normal?

    He doesn't look like he has a hair ring . That is why we checked him. He wasn't peeing as much so we checked him for the hair ring. It went right back in. But he peed this morning.

    Has anyone ever received timothy hay this thin?

    I just received this timothy hay from American Pet Diner. It is very thin and doesn't smell like timothy but they told me it was timothy hay. It is very thin, in the photos it looks a bit thicker. Has anyone purchased hay like this before.

    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!
