Hi so i rescued my second chinchilla 3 weeks ago and we were told she showed symptoms of teeth issues but they had her checked out mupltipe times and she look fine. Since we got her i suspected it was malo, especially considering the symptoms she was already displaying, hunching, grinding teeth, selective with food/prefered soft food, never chewed on hay or any toys. We planned on taking her in but our other chin had an emergency so we had to put off miphas vet appointment. She started displaying drooling and is having a hard time eating. I definalty suspect maloto be the cause. An appointment for Saturday has been made. Owners who have had chins with malo, what was ur experience and anything i should know? Should I expect surgery or can it be corrected without? Any tips on keeping her teeth healthy in the future and not needing vet intervention further on?
