Medical Care

We wish you and your new chin addition a long and hoppy life of companionship. First, however, select a trusted exotic veterinarian and schedule a wellness exam appointment BEFORE you bring chinny home. While we know the rescue or humane society you adopted your chinchilla from examined them, it’s helpful for your vet to get a baseline. They can also advise you what to do when ms. Chin isn’t feeling well. If you need help finding a vet, check out our helpful blog.

New Pawrent Checklist

The rescue you’re adopting from should give you a new pawrent checklist once you're approved to adopt. Then, you’ll have everything you need when you bring a chinny or two home. It’s always good to do additional research, though. For example, using your search engine, look up "new chinchilla owner checklist." While I am not a fan of the word "owner," using that term will get you the best results. Having several supply lists will also help you figure out how expensive chinchillas are to keep.
