Your Chinchilla’s Health
You should visit a qualified exotics veterinarian at least once a year for check-ups on your chinchilla’s diet, behavior, and health.
Be prepared for your pet’s visits by making a list of any questions or concerns you may have ahead of time. Ask your veterinarian about the potential of spaying or neutering your chinchilla. Many chinchilla health problems are preventable with proper diet and care.
Chinchilla Dust Bath
Due to the density of chinchillas’ fur and their naturally oily skin, they should have access to a dust bath as opposed to water. Use Oxbow’s Poof! Chinchilla Dust Bath to ensure a safe dust bath time that is ideal for maintaining your chinchilla’s soft fur.
