If you have watched a news channel or opened up a newspaper in the past week or so, you’ve probably heard about how over 420 chinchillas were recently rescued from a fur factory in Southern California and are steadily becoming available for adoption from the San Diego Human Society.
Chinchillas are adorable, soft, delicate, and require unique care to stay happy and healthy. One of the most important pillars of any animal care is a complete and appropriate diet. Mazuri Chinchilla Food is nutritionally complete, contains multiple fiber sources, including timothy hay; contains flaxseed; has live probiotics to promote gastrointestinal health; contains natural vitamin E and stabilized Vitamin C; and smells sweet for high palatability.
Mazuri Chinchilla Food is raved about amongst Chinchilla owners and enthusiasts for it’s high quality nutrition, while also being very affordable. A 25lb bag at Mary’s is $19.99, and a 25lb bag goes a very long way for rodent that usually weighs less than a few pounds.
If you come in for a bag, don’t forget to also pick up a bag of Oxbow Small Animal Hay. Not as economical as buying a full bale of timothy hay, but not everyone has room for an 80-100lb bale of hay! Oxbow Hay is also another Chinchilla owner/enthusiast favorite for its high quality and affordable products. It comes in several strains of hay such as Western Timothy, Orchard Grass, Alfalfa, and Oat Hay. Oxbow products are available on our website as well as in store. http://www.marystack.com
