    Possibly Hurt?

    My little two year old fella normally loves to come out of his cage and run into his bath and play around the room. The past few days he has only jumped into his bath but has not turned over then he goes and sits on a rug. It doesn't look like he hops slow or funny on the way to the bath...

    Chinchilla Dust and Silicosis? I may have an irrational fear and I think posting here might help

    I've just recently bought the Chill Dust. The texture is very fine, but I feel it spreads just like the Blue Cloud I've used before.

    Bottle vs bowl

    I bought the 8oz glass Lixit water bottle and it's great, never leaks!!!

    Chinchilla does not chew much

    Thank you for your reply. No, he doesn't chew on his bars - just the apple sticks. He probably eats a pile of timothy hay about half his size a day with a small amount of orchard/alfalfa hay mixed in for a treat. We tried the hay cubes as well and he didn't like them either. We are still at...

    Chinchilla does not chew much

    I am having this problem as well. Shadow is only about 8 months old. I have taken him to the vet and all was well. I have tried plain and colored wood toy pieces, loofa, pumice stone, shredders, coconut shell pieces, finger trap shredders, sea grass, banana leaf ball, willow balls, vine...

    Chinchilla noises randomly

    Shadow just started barking about 4-5 times the last two nights at 3:30am then he stops. I was wondering what the problem was as well. He still had plenty of food, water, chew items?

    Not chewing - and other newbie questions/concerns

    It was very difficult to find any exotic vet within an hour drive or so of my home so I only really have three choices. I guess this one isn't has good as I had hoped. Perhaps I'll try one of the others. I haven't read anything in my research about giving them any fresh veggies so I haven't -...

    Not chewing - and other newbie questions/concerns

    Good news!!! The vet said his teeth look perfect and has a clean bill of health! She did mention that I could give him a small amount of raw veggies - greens that are low in calcium and oxalates such as arugula, bibb lettuce, cilantro, dill, and romaine. Do any of you feed your chinchillas...

    Not chewing - and other newbie questions/concerns

    Thank you for your reply that makes me feel a little better!! I'm taking him to the vet today just for a general check-up. Hopefully they will be able to put some of my worries to rest.

    Not chewing - and other newbie questions/concerns

    I guess I should have thought of that!!! I think my brain has turned to mush. Thank you!

    Not chewing - and other newbie questions/concerns

    I have given him some small colorful pieces of wood you would use to make a hanging toy with, small apple twigs, yucca wood rounds, and a banana leaf ball - he's not interested in any of them. Thank you for the treats list. It sounds like we have been giving him too many. I was trying to...

    Not chewing - and other newbie questions/concerns

    Thank you so much for your time/reply. I'm just concerned that he isn't eating enough. I will try adding a different type of hay to his existing batch and if that doesn't do the trick I will try another brand of hay. Besides Oxbow what is another quality brand?

    Not chewing - and other newbie questions/concerns

    Hello Everyone, I just adopted my first chin a week and a half ago. He is a standard gray 8 month old male. He has not shown any interest or chewed on any of his woods, loofa, pumice, bay cubes,or straw we have given him. He only chews on the seagrass occasionally that I used to make one of...
