The more of the fruits, veggies, greens, and grain/soy based foods that you feed your chinchilla, the less hay they will eat.

You may be worried that your chinchilla will not get enough water and nutrients in their diet if they aren't eating their salads and veggies...

Does Grass Hay Provide Enough Nutrition to Keep Your Chinchilla Healthy?

Grass hay is a great source of fiber but you need to fill the holes/deficiencies by supplementing their diet with additional protein, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.


Example of a healthy well balanced diet.

Farm raised salads, veggies and hay leave nutritional gaps in your chinchillas diet. Feeding Sherwood pellets is the best way to provide the needed protein, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. As a result of eating hay and Sherwood pellets you'll see your chinchilla transform into a Healthier and Hoppier member of your family.


Summary

To encourage your chinchilla to eat more hay just cut back on veggies, greens and treats. You'll then see them eat tons more hay and drink more water than ever before. It will flush their urinary tract. Then introduce Sherwood's hay-based pellets to provide them with balanced nutrition and watch them transform into a Healthier and Hoppier chinchilla!

ps. If you have cut back feeding greens and treats and your chinchilla now eats more hay, has better poop, and drinks more water please share their story below!
