  2. I’d like some advice on how to go about rehoming rescued chinchillas from anyone who has run a chin rescue or homed a lot of chinchillas. I don’t want them to go to homes where I will end up having to rescue them again-Or even worse a home where they will not be looked after. I’ve been lucky so far & always send out a care sheet with the new owners but I currently have 12 chins (inc a 8week old hand reared kit) and I’m finding it harder and harder to find the right homes. Also I have a skinny ebony chin who lived with 2 males for years before me & she pines for them & wont eat unless she’s with them...Plz help-She’s too small to get pregnant but I don’t want to chance it & end up with her getting sick or worse because of a bad preganacy.
  3. Hiya sorry not able to help further but have you tried posting this on the FB Chinformative page https://www.facebook.com/pg/CHINformative/posts/?ref=notif
  4. Emergency kit help needed! Got mom after she gave birth to 6 kits at the pet store...unfortunately none of them made it. I've been feverishly researching! She had to have been bred back sometime before I got her because 4 days ago I discovered 4 kits in her cage! I began supplementally KMR every 2 hours round the clock. Started with 1, and now its up to 3 that want it. All four are gaining thus far. My cause for alarm is that tonight, 2 kits have what appears to be diarreah all over their back ends and inside their hind legs!!! Could this possibly be normal excrement for a kit, and the mother just hasn't cleaned these 2? Could treats for the mom cause her milk to have too much sugar? I do admit, I have given her way too many treats as it's difficult to wrangle the kits from underneath her at feeding time otherwise. I tried a damp warm cotton ball but was unsuccessful at best in cleaning the dried excrement from them. Should I seperate these 2? Is there anything else that could cause diarreah in just 2 of the kits, since 3 have been eating the same supplement for over 24 hours? Any advice to help these poor babies would be greatly appreciated!!!
  5. I've never heard of this but I would just monitor and if you're concerned then take him/her to the vet.
  6. Help! My chinchilla ate some avocado skin and fruit, the size of fingernail. I read that avocado is poisonous for chinchilla, so what can i do to help?
