Remember that good quality hay and/or grass should make up the majority of your chinchillas’ diet and should be available at all times. Chinchillas should also be fed a small amount of leafy greens each day. Please talk to your vet for further information.
If you are currently feeding a muesli style food to your chinchillas you should gradually transfer your pets onto a hay and nugget based feeding plan over a period of between 14 and 28 days, by gradually reducing the amount of muesli and increasing the proportion of nuggets until they have completely replaced the mix.
Always ensure you are monitoring your chinchillas’ weight to ensure a healthy weight.
Always ensure fresh clean water is available for your chinchillas.
