The carrier u listed is perfect. The...

    Is my chinchilla in pain?!

    One of my chins do this when she gets tired after playtime. But id definatly have her checked out. If everything seems fine from the vet she may just be really tired or over heated from play time

    Yellow spit up?

    Hi so I just went to let my chins out for some exercise and noticed some yellowish type goop under my chinchillas mouth. Never seen anything like this and Google doesn't seem to be helping. She just went to the vet 2 days ago for a tooth trimming and they did a general check to make sure she's...

    Leg injury

    My chin cut her leg a while back and thank god their weren't any bone or muscle injuries but she was limping long after the inuring healed. We found she had just lost her confidence and was favoring the leg. Give it time and do some physical therapy to get the muscles working again. Hold him and...

    Help my chinchilla is on pain how do you trim the teeth he can’t eat he’s hungry but he can’t eat I can’t find a dr

    From one who has a chin with malo, if his teeth are overgrown he defiantly needs a vet with experience. I would call every vet in the state if u can and see if any of them offer chinchilla trimming. Unfortunaly if u cant its only humane to put him down as he is starving himself rn.

    My chins are not eating the timothy hay

    Hay can be very frustratring when u have a picky chinchilla. I have 2 and one will eat anything u hand her and the other one pretty much wont touch it, even alafa hay. You just have to find a blend that ur chin likes. My picky one will only eat oat hay so I mix it with western timothy (my other...

    Tilly may have an eye infection

    my chinchilla has the same problem,but we know she has malocclusion so when we that happen we schedule an appointment to trim her teeth. I would take her to the vet asap to check for overgrown teeth. It could be just a simple eye infection, caused by irritation from hay or dust, or something...

    Living in two places?

    changing locations like that, that often will just cause her unnesscary stress. My opinion would be to have her stay with ur mom and visit as often as u can, and getting her a companion definalty wouldn't hurt the situation

    Considering getting a new animal, need opinions

    My first chinchilla spent all of her life alone until she was 4. She is super dominant and territorial and did not like the new chin at first. After a week they were completely bonded and are inseparable. I personally think its a great idea to get another chinchilla for urs to have a companion...

    Chin with Malo

    So we took her to our vet and they did an examination and noticed her top left molar are slightly slanted but that caused an ulcer on the bottom gum which is why she was drooling. They weren't able to do x-rays that's day but from what we can tell it's not bad. The rescue is helping us with her...
