Questions & Answers

5 Customer Questions

I thought chinchilla can’t have a lot of alfalfa? It’s in the pellets
Answer by ChewyMay 26, 2019
Alfalfa is fine for chinchillas to eat and should be fed as part of a balanced diet along with other types of hay such as meadow or Timothy hay.

Can this be fed to degu?
Answer by ChewyJan 07, 2018
This formula is intended for Chinchillas.

How large are the pellets? My chinchilla is having trouble holding my current food.
Answer by ChewyFeb 16, 2018
The Pellet is 3/8 inches long and 5/32 inches in diameter.

How long is the shelf life-Left out and frozen?
Answer by ChewySep 15, 2020
Each package has it's own "Best-By-Date" listed on the back of the bag on the lower left-hand side. Freezing this food doesn't change it and may extend the freshness.

My fav chin food

I used to feed Oxbow but one of my chinchillas has the "squashy poops" that never seems to resolve no matter what I try, so switched to Mazuri. They all do well on this (I have 3 chins). I buy the large bag it lasts a very long time.

My boys love this food. It does NOT have copious amounts of sugar and terribly unhealthy fillers in it like almost all the other commercial brands. Try it. Your chin will love it. Both their coats are gorgeous and they are fit and super healthy!

picky eater approved!

my chinchilla is VERY picky about his food. He normally leaves the pellets for last and barely eats them, rather staving himself yhan eat them, but he scarfs these pellets down!

a gray and healthy food

This is really good for chinchillas, along with oxbow pellets. I totally recommend getting mazuri food. I got a 25 lb bag of it, and it should last me a while. My chins are healthy and happy and they have been eating this their whole lives. They are 5 and 6 years old, and haven’t had any health problems.

Best chin food around!

This chinchilla food is the number one brand recommended by my vet - and my chinnie loves it! If you’re switching from a different food, remember to do that slowly so you don’t upset their tummies - but otherwise I say go for it! This is the healthiest formula out there, and ordering it from Chewy is a lot more affordable than buying it from the pet store. Enjoy!
