There are a number of common health problems with chinchillas.

Dental problems

The most common health problem in chinchillas is dental problems. Problems often arise from incorrect positioning of the jaws. As a result, the teeth cannot wear properly and they become too long and grow crooked. Teeth that are too long can be sharpened at the vet under anesthesia. The teeth should never be cut! This can cause them to split. There are a number of things we can do to prevent dental problems. Firstly, it is important to ensure that the chinchillas come from a good breeder. The risk of congenital jaw abnormalities is then reduced. An incorrect jaw position can also be caused by trauma. It is important to ensure that there are no large height differences in the cage. This way we reduce the chance of the animals falling from a great height. In addition, good nutrition and sufficient gnawing material are important for optimal tooth wear.

Digestive problems

Chinchillas have a very sensitive digestive system. They are sensitive to gas formation in the stomach. Gas formation can be recognized by difficulty breathing, lying on the side and no longer wanting to eat. Diarrhea and hairballs also occur in chinchillas. The gastrointestinal tract can also become stagnant when the chinchillas eat too little. To prevent digestive problems, it is important to carefully consider the nutritional needs of chinchillas. Too many sugary snacks can quickly cause problems.

Lung disorders

Chinchillas cannot tolerate drafts and temperature changes very well. They are susceptible to pneumonia. It is therefore very important to ensure that the chinchillas are never exposed to drafts.

Mold

chinchilla sand bath Chinchillas can suffer from mold. The fungus can be recognized by bald spots in the coat 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. Powdered medication can be obtained from the vet to treat the fungus. This powder can be mixed with the chinchilla sand. During bathing, the chinchilla ensures that the powder is well distributed throughout the 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 himself noticeably often, he should definitely check for such a hair ring around the penis. In principle, this can be removed by the owner of the animal himself.

Broken bones

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