Feeding Instructions

Chinchillas eat most of their food during the night so ensure fresh food and clean water are always available. Supplemental food items may be provided, but should be less than 20% of the total diet. We recommend supplementing with high quality grass hay and limited vegetables and fruits. Thoroughly wash feeding and watering bowls on a regular basis. It is always good practice to wash hands thoroughly after feeding and/or handling pets. This diet is not for human consumption.

    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!

    By sherlock on Jul 26, 2020

    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

    By Ella on May 29, 2020

    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!

    By CherilynB on Apr 13, 2020

    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!

    Best food that you can feed your Chin

    By PetMomPA on May 9, 2020

    Our chin shovels this down and it has only the best ingredients in my opinion. I wish more pet stores carried this brand in our area but not many of them do. I would only recommend anyone owning a chin to use this brand.
