I got my chinchilla from a breeder back on April 17th. He was born on February 13th. Everything was great at first except for he has never drank much water. A couple weeks ago I noticed that he stopped drinking almost entirely and his poop started to get small and then he stopped pooping almost entirely. He went to the vet that day and they gave me critical care and said they didn't really know what was going on. Vet said to give him 10 ml a day I've been giving him about 12. 6 in the morning 6 at night. He seemed to be back to normal 36 hours later. We kept giving him critical care for a few more days until he just stopped willingly eating it. I didn't want to stress him out and he seemed back to normal so I stopped critical care altogether. He was fine for a couple days and then stopped pooping once again. That day I stopped and got him some simethicone. I have been force feeding him that and the critical care for the past four days. He's been pooping normal. Eating a ton of hay and pellets on his own. Playing like normal but he still doesn't drink a ton of water. While I was giving him his medicine this morning I noticed be pooped twice and they are rather large and airy. Other than that he has been pooping a lot and they have been mostly normal. Just wondering what I really need to do or be looking for. I want my little buddy to have a long happy life and I'd really appreciate any help and info.
