Questions & Answers

4 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 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.

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.

Chinchilla bugs

My last bag of Mazuri had small black bugs in it. I've ordered many times from chewy with no problems till this time. I'm scared to give it to my chinchilla or any other persons pet. I'm very disappointed because it left me with no food after paying nearly $30,and having to find a bag smaller and costing more per pound locally. I hope this isn't a regular thing with chewy now.

Trying a new chin food

I've been a long time Oxbow Chinchilla user, but I know folks who use and trust Mazuri so I am trying it, of course first mixed with Oxbow for a slow change over. So far, the fuzz butts are not "cherry picking" out the Oxbow and tossing the Mazuri which I saw them do consistently with other pellet food. Would represent a nice reduction in food cost if they like it.

chili LOVES it!

My chinchilla Chili loved this food! He goes crazy when I have to refill his dish, he’s a pretty fussy eater. So thankful I found this food and in a bag big too!

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.

Be aware of bugs

I got this bag on Feb 2021, today I open the bag there are lots of brown, very tiny, beetles in it! Very gross!! This is the second time it happened, the bag was sealed quite well, so those bug egg come in the bag! The funny thing is I freeze this bag in the freezer before, but it seems this way did not kill the bug egg! It took them a few months to turn into bugs!!! My chin really love matsuri food but now the bug problem is very serious!!!
