What do I feed my Chinchilla?

What do Chinchillas eat? It is best to stick with specific Chinchilla food found at the better, larger pet supply stores. The foods should contain whole kernel corn, oats, wheat, barley and sunflower seeds without excess fruits. Supplements of hay that are fresh must be free of dust and smell sweet. The best choice of hay includes alfalfa and pure dried grass. Read labels before purchasing and providing your Chinchilla its wholesome diet to guarantee it is fresh and contains the appropriate ingredients as listed above. Also be sure to provide an ample supply of bottled or filtered water. Do not feed your Chin too many treats or it can be life threatening.
