There are a number of common health problems in chinchillas.

dental problems

The most common health problem in chinchillas is a dental problem. Problems often arise from a wrong position of the jaws. As a result, the teeth cannot wear properly and they become too long and grow crooked. Too long teeth can be ground under anesthesia at the vet. The teeth should never be clipped! This can cause them to split. There are a number of things we can do to prevent dental problems. First, it is important to make sure that the chinchillas come from a good breeder. The risk of congenital jaw defects is then reduced. A wrong jaw position can also be caused by trauma. It is important to ensure that there are no large differences in height in the cage. This way we reduce the chance that the animals will fall from a great height. In addition, a good diet and sufficient gnawing material are important for optimal wear of the teeth.

Digestive Problems

Chinchillas have a very sensitive digestive system. They are sensitive to gas in the stomach. Gas can be recognized by labored breathing, lying on the side and not wanting to eat anymore. Diarrhea and hairballs also occur in chinchillas. The gastrointestinal tract can also come to a standstill when the chinchillas eat too little. To prevent digestive problems, it is important to take a good look at the nutritional needs of chinchillas. Too many sugary snacks can quickly cause problems.

Lung disorders

Chinchillas do not tolerate drafts and temperature changes very well. They are prone to pneumonia. So it is very important to make sure that the chinchillas are never in draft.

mold

chinchilla sand bath Chinchillas can get mold. The fungus can be recognized by bald spots in the fur or spots on the ears. This fungus is very annoying because it is a zoonosis. This means that people can also get the fungus. The fungus can therefore be transmitted from animals to humans. To treat the fungus, powdered medication can be picked up from the vet. This powder can be mixed with the chinchilla sand. During the bath, the chinchilla itself ensures that the powder is well distributed throughout the entire coat.

penis ring

In male chinchillas, a hair ring may form around the penis. This can pinch the penis. The penis becomes numb and may die. This can even cause the chinchilla to die. If a male washes remarkably often, one should definitely check for such a hair ring around the penis. In principle, this can be removed by the owner of the animal himself.

bone fractures

Bone fractures in chinchillas often occur because the chinchilla falls from a great height. To prevent this, it is important to take into account when setting up the cage that there are no large differences in height. Fortunately, fractures in chinchillas heal relatively well and quickly.
