Hello, you guys! I am new to this forum and I would love some advice, please. My chinchilla had two premature babies yesterday and one was born dead but the other one is fighting to live. I did not know she was pregnant as she just had a litter (yes, I separated the male immediately). The mom is of course cleaning and warming him but I am quite sure the kit is not eating. When I first weighed him yesterday he was 31 grams and now he is 27 grams. I am force-feeding him kitty replacement milk every 2 hours but he keeps spitting it out or taking it out his nose. I am also worried about his eyes being closed. I tried gently rubbing with warm water and a q-tip today. Please, any advice will help. I have owned chinchillas for 3 years now just in case anyone is wondering.
