I ride horses and my horse instructor has a chinchilla that is rely sick. The poor chiny is not eating since the vet took a tooth out because there is an abscess in her jaw or that is what the vet thinks it is. She will have to be put down if she dose not start eating, and I would at least like to know it anyone knows how to get her to start eating or at at least if you know what might rely be wrong with her because the vet is not positive. Crying or Very sad Sad Sweaty Chinnie

The chin really should be handfed with critical care and maybe some life line. This little chin has to be eating several times a day to ensure that the gut motility is maintained. Sometimes when a chin hasn't been eating gut motility drugs should be given with simethicone to keep things moving and keep gas from building up in the intestinal tract.

Chins just have to keep eating all the time. After this chin's mouth stops hurting she should go back to eating more on her own. Chins with tooth problems can be so delicate and require so much care.
