    Chinchilla hair loss

    I’ve been battling horrible fur chewing with my little boy for 2 years now. We moved from San Diego to LA County and none of the doctors I’ve taken him to know why he’s doing it. They’ve done fungal testing, topical flea meds, blood work, & X-rays… he has multiple enclosures in my room, has...

    Chinchilla Dry Ears?

    I’ve used Bag Balm in the past for my chin’s dry back feet - they once cracked and even bled! Now he only gets baths M, W, F. It’s been a few years since he’s needed the ointment (and he hated it! 😅). I was also giving him too many baths back then

    Tiny brown bugs in Timothy Hay

    Thank you for replying! I decided to toss the hay. It was given to me by a friend who had purchased it from a feed store, and based on what little bit I’ve found online, that can be considered a normal finding. Still, I figured it’s best to be safe. Plus we had the hay for many months since it...

    Tiny brown bugs in Timothy Hay

    Hello all, Very recently I noticed a few small bugs crawling on the bag of my Timothy Hay. I keep the bag inside a large plastic bin. I've never seen them before so I'm going to empty the large bin and sort through the sealed bags of extra toys that I also keep in there! I don't want to panic...
