Not sure if this is a dumb question or not, but can chinchillas have oat flour? I’d like to make some treats for them and can’t find any info about this online lol. Thanks!

Not a good idea, grains are gassy and oats are high in phosphorous with can throw off the calcium to phosphorus balance leading to a calcium deficiency. Oat should be given very limited like a few (2-4) oats a week, I would think you would be using more then one or two oats worth of flour 😉 .

What you can use for making something like cookie treats is critical care or even just grind up some of their pellets and/or hay and mix chin safe treats into them. (I posted a whole list on this thread here Treats )
