Feeding Your Chinchilla
Your chinchilla is a herbivore, which means he eats only plant material. Grass hay should be the high-fiber cornerstone of every chinchilla’s diet. The fiber in hay helps meet the important digestive health needs of herbivores such as chinchillas. A daily recommended amount of a uniform, fortified food provides essential vitamins and minerals not found in hay. Fresh greens are also an important component of a chinchilla’s diet, and healthy treats can be beneficial when given in moderation.
