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.

    Chin Loves this food

    By on

    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 on

    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 on

    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.

    Amazing mix

    By on

    My little fatty is very particular about what he eats and he loves this mix. I will take the bag out and he will start to dance around his cage. I will definitely be buying this version again, in a bigger bag next time!

    Love this food!!

    By on

    I bought this when our regular chin food was discontinued. It took a couple of days for him to get used to it but he loves it now. The biggest perk - his cage doesn’t smell anymore! It’s amazing!!!

    First ever bad experience

    By on

    I have ordered this before and my chinchilla loved it. So I was disappointed to open my box and see it scattered throughout the box. There was a tear hole in the bag. This has never happened before
