What a Chinchilla Needs

posted 4 years ago

This is one of the top 3 pellets for your chinchilla. The problem with so many chinchilla mixes sold at the big chains are the treats they include. To feed them is like taking your human child to McDonald's every day for every meal. They love you for it but they aren't going to be healthy. The worst part is the sugar content in many of these foods. Sugar is the enemy of your chin's gut. It boosts unhealthy bacteria levels and often leads to bloat, a possibly fatal condition.

I'm a staff member of a chinchilla forum and often get asked what to feed them. Chinchillas benefit most from a quality alfalfa-based pellet like Oxbow makes. Among the top 3 pellets, this one often seems preferred by chins for it's fresh flavor. I will note that some older chins and special needs chins benefit from a timmy-based pellet because of lower protein levels but the majority of chins out there just thrive on a feed like this. You can get Oxbow pellets at vets' offices, feed stores, smaller pet stores, and many online retailers. Take the extra minute or two to find it, pay the few extra dollars, and love your pet for a long time.

Pros: The quality fiber and protein your chin needs to be healthy

Cons: Some bags are a bit crumbly
