Hi Hoomans! It’s Tesla and Eva here with Quality Cage Crafters. In the same way that you can get sick occasionally, we can also need a little extra TLC from time to time. Lucky for you, Quality Cage Crafters has everything you need to get us back to feeling better in no time!
Critical Care is a must-have in your chinchilla first aid kit as it is a great resource for feeding a sick chinchilla - whether your chinchilla is sick, injured, or requires a soft food diet, this is the perfect product to have on hand.
Here’s a review from Happy Hooman Michael G.: “Our chinchilla was not eating and losing weight due to age, health related problems. Not only does she love this food, but it also helped her to get strong and healthy again. Highly recommend it.”
Your best bet if you think your chinchilla has a fungal infection or a cut that may be susceptible to infection would be to treat it with Blu-Kote. It works as an antiseptic ointment to help prevent your chinchilla’s symptoms from worsening by closing the wound faster, and it also has a fungicidal formula to treat and fight off any infections as the wound heals.
Here’s a review from Happy Hooman Chris D: “I’ve used this in the past and it’s a very fast drying dressing. It works fast! I love Quality Cage Crafters!”
Bag Balm was originally designed for cows' udders to heal them from overmilking, but owners and experts alike say it works perfectly for your chinchilla's dry ear and cracked paws. It is applied similar to how you would apply Neosporin, with the exception of wiping the excess off of your chinchilla after you have applied it.
