    bag balm

    I used bag balm once and it worked over night. Its a miracle worker. Granted my chin's feet were a little dry, probably not as bad as your chins, but I was surprised by how fast it worked.

    Towel in cage liners

    If your looking for an absorbent fabric for your liners I suggest Zorb. It's kinda like uhaul but is not so thick.

    Introductions and Safety

    Since that it is a stressful situation I would not have a huge group of people crowding the cage to see her when you first get her. I would wait a week before handling her. You can feed treats through the bars. Don't make loud noises or have a bunch of people in the room at a given time. As for...

    Hello From Indiana!

    Hello and welcome! I have owned my chinchilla for about 6 years now. I have him in a 2 story critter nation cage. I highly recommend those. The bigger the cage the better so have a double unit it best. If you don't have the space for that get the single unit or get a cage with multi levels but...

    I am so sorry for your loss! It is always a hard time when a pet passes because you grow a friendship with that animal. And since its your first time, it will be even harder! But always look at it that you loved Missy and she died knowing you loved her! I hope you feel better soon! ~Marcus :D

    Major problem. Missing fur.

    With out picture's its hard to tell how badly the wound is. If this happened to my chinchilla I would bring him to the vet just to make sure he didn't break anything and to make sure it heals properly. If it doesn't seem to bother him at the moment wait until the Vet is open. Just keep on eye on...

    Junky food

    I agree with everyone. I see that there is ground corn in it which just acts as a filler. There is also a lot of unnecessary ingredients in the food. I used to feed my chinchilla food with all sorts of things in it and he ended up just eating the color bits. Selective eating is a huge problem...
