Feeding Instructions

Feed your chinchilla 2 to 3 tbsp of Sunburst per day depending on the age of your pet. Complement this feeding with unlimited amounts of hay. Always regulate the food portion to maintain your pet’s weight. A pregnant or lactating female will sometimes eat 2 to 3 times as much as a normal adult. Remove and discard uneaten food everyday and clean the bowl prior to refilling it. Always maintain fresh drinking water near your pet’s food container.

Transition Instructions

While introducing a new food to your pet friend, gradually mix new food with your pet’s old diet. Increase the amount of food over a period of 7 to 10 days. This will allow your pet to adjust to the new food and it will prevent any upset to your pet’s digestive system.

    Chinchillas' Fav Brand!

    By Jennihawk on Sep 28, 2021

    I've tried so many different brands of chinchilla pellets and this by far is their favorite. They're usually really picky with the type of pellets they eat but with these they eat everything and having an empty bowl is a pet owner's dream.

    Not suitable for chinchillas!

    By Pleasedontbuy on Jul 30, 2021

    Chinchillas should not be given fruit! Dried of otherwise, it wrecks havoc on their digestive system. They are unable to expel has and can have severe bloating , leading to all kinds of issues. Please don’t give them fruits, veggies, seeds or nuts. Look into safe treats for them, such as dried calendula, hibiscus, rose hips, Hawthorne berries, etc. yes, I said treats. This is not suitable food for them. They need pellets such as science selective or oxbow in the red bag or Mazuri, as well as unlimited hay. Please so your research. These company’s can’t be counted on to provide the proper diet for our pets. They don’t do their homework.

    Chin Owners Beware!

    By lyss on Mar 17, 2021

    Just wanted to warn chin owners about this food! This was the first bag I ever bought for my chin and I’ve learned my lesson. Chins tend to pick through the food and only eat the treats, and every vet and breeder I’ve talked to said AVOID FOOD WITH ANY EXTRA STUFF IN IT!!! My boy gained weight very quickly and became constipated because the poor guy picked all of the treats out. This food just isn’t healthy for chins. Again, I know you guys know best for your babies, but I will never stop advocating against this food!

    My four Chinchillas loved this!

    By ChillaMama on Sep 30, 2020

    I have a chinchilla family of four and mom and dad and two babies absolutely love this food! It's healthy and they get treats throughout their food but the only downside is they all pick through the food and only eat the treats.

    bigger bags yay! finally

    By snow on Aug 28, 2020

    Amazing chinchilla food, mine have all loved it. Have tried many kinds. Waited forever for them to sell the bigger bags but not happy with the price of it. Should be getting a deal with it not a higher price then buying the smaller bags. what a let down from the nice surprise

    Chinchilla food

    By Madmomma on Sep 7, 2020

    Our chinchilla loved this food, but unfortunately she passed away this weekend. I have an unopened bag of food, I'm trying to find an organization to donate her unopened items to.

    Chin Loves this food

    By Victoria on May 1, 2020

    My chinchilla seems to really enjoy this food. It has a wide variety of healthy snackums so it's nice she gets a treat every so often inside. It is also nice that bits of hay are included to reduce the large clumps that can smell...lovely. I've stocked up, thanks!

    good for a treat

    By Cory on Apr 30, 2020

    I get this for my boy as a once a week treat and a change from his regular pellets. It’s great as such, but would be a terrible choice for primary diet as chinchillas should just be having basic pellets without all that added business normally.

    Completely inappropriate diet

    By AMar on Mar 8, 2020

    This is chock full of all sorts of things truly not appropriate for your chinchilla to eat. I know it seems nice to give your chins more variety but they are evolved to eat a plain diet. Plain pellets and hay are the best thing for them. If you are looking for treats for your chins give them fruit wood sticks, loofah, or certain dried herbs are a better choice. Shame on chewy for even stocking this horribly inappropriate food.
