  2. 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
  3. 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!!!
  4. I've never heard of this but I would just monitor and if you're concerned then take him/her to the vet.
  5. 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?
  6. Once fighting/aggression has occurred, it is extremely unwise to consider reintroduction. consider using a separate cage for the aggressor and closely monitoring the relationship between the two chinchillas remaining together.
  7. Hi, Unfortunately the dynamics in their relationships can change & they don’t always get along/ continue to get along. If they fight they can cause serious injury to each other. Sometimes it can become necessary to have to seperate permanently. It may be changes in them as they matured & challengeing dominance. Do you have any females near them perhaps in season?
  8. I am having issues with my 3 male Chinchillas, they have lived together fine for two years, father and two sons however the oldest son has become aggressive towards the other two especially his dad Dobby. Have had to separate them. Any ideas on anything I could do? May have to think of rehoming Brian as Dobby and Basil are happy together now they are separated.
