What to Know About Pet Chinchillas
Are you considering a chinchilla as your next pet or even your first pet? That’s great! Before heading to the pet store or shopping online, make sure you talk to your vet to find out what kind of care is required, what to feed a chinchilla, and how long they live. This could make or break your decision to bring one home. For instance, chinchillas can live anywhere from 10 to 15 years. That’s around the same time as a dog. Chinchillas also need a lot of interaction, exercise, and things to keep them busy. If you can’t be home with your chinchilla to take him out of his cage and play with him routinely then this might not be the pet for you. In addition, chinchillas need to be on the right kind of diet which includes pellet food and grass or hay. Learn more about chinchillas by clicking here to reach your veterinarian Greater Cincinnati.
