About 3 or 4 days ago my chinchilla stopped pooping a lot like normal chins do and then he stopped eating his hay and pellets but he ate his treats, this worried me so I watched him for a few hours and he had diarrhea once it worried me and I took him to the vet in the morning, they examined his poop and looked at his teeth and took his temperature and said he’s fine but said to change his pellets and hay so I did I changed it to oxbow chinchilla food and his hay is oat hay. he ate some pellets and some hay but not as much as he usually does, he runs on his wheel occasionally. My sister told me to give it a few days and he will be okay but I can’t help but think there’s something wrong with him he also bites on his fur a lot not sure if that’s really normal. I’m so worried about him I’m not sure if I should try finding another one and take him or wait a few days to see if he’s better.
