Chinchilla Veterinary Checkup

What to expect during your chinchilla’s vet visit.

What to expect during your chinchilla’s vet visit.

Within 48 hours of getting your new chinchilla, take it to a veterinarian that is knowledgeable in small animals. Most chinchillas purchased from a pet store or breeder come with a health guarantee. Before your chinchilla’s veterinary checkup, make a list of questions or concerns you want to address with the veterinarian.

During the veterinary checkup, the vet will:

  • Determine the sex of your chinchilla
  • Weigh your chinchilla
  • Test a sample of your chinchilla’s feces for parasites
  • Check for signs of dehydration and starvation
  • Examine your chinchilla’s teeth
