Choosing the right chinchilla supplies will make your small pet`s life healthier. It is really necessary to the meet animal`s basic needs. You have to make sure your furry friend gets the main accessories that he needs. Some of these items will last for years. Here is a list of the top chinchilla supplies.

Houses & Habitats

Cages

The chinchilla cage is the special place where your pet will spend most of his time. One way to start choosing this accessory is to consider how many chinchillas will live in it, what is their sex, how old are they, etc. There are plenty of possibilities on the market. For example, if you have one baby chinchilla and you are not planning to get more, then you can opt for a cage with two floors and 3 shelves. If you are taking care of a family in the same cage, consider bigger habitat that can be divided into two separate parts. Make sure you buy a house that is tall enough for your pet to jump in.

To maintain the healthy environment in the cage you will need items from the bedding & litter as well as sleepers & hideouts categories.

Exercise Wheels

Exercise wheels are also part of the chinchilla supplies. This funny toy is an essential part of your pet’s development. It keeps your chinchilla active and fit. Make sure that the wheel is not only entertaining, but also safe.

Food

Your chinchilla will need Timothy hay and dry food twice daily. The regular food and water intake is necessary for your pet to remain active and healthy. This exotic pet is herbivore so you have to provide him with dry grass and pellets. The vegan diet also includes some treats such as dry fruit and vegetables.

Feeding & Watering Chinchilla Supplies

The right choice of dishes and water bottles is very important. Plastic or stainless steel bowls are placed in the cage so that the food is available to the chinchilla whenever he feels hungry.

Wash regularly dishes, feeders & waterers with mild water and soap to get rid of bacteria.

Grooming

Dust baths, odor & stain removers are part of the category “Grooming supplies”. These habitat cleaners and odor eliminators are mainly used to keep your exotic pet clean and healthy. Standard accessories include a dust bath box, dust powder and deodorizers.

Treats

Chews are also necessities mainly because they help to maintain chinchilla`s teeth. Treats are not only entertaining toys but also nutritive additives packed with vitamins and minerals.
