Chinchilla Chew Toys
Chinchillas need to constantly chew on things to keep their teeth healthy. Might as well have fun doing it, wouldn’t you say? Here are some of the chew toys we’ve tried over the years.
Lava Bites are little triangular stones made out of mineral lava. Each triangle is made with a small hole in the middle so that you can hang or place the triangle on a narrow rod for the chinchillas to chew. In our case, we just placed a triangle in their cage and within 3 days it was completely gone. Our chinchillas just loved it and left nothing but dust as evidence.
Chinchillas need to have ready access to items they can chew on to keep their teeth from growing too long. Various types of wood such as apple are safe for this purpose. If you don’t have access to the right kinds of wood, consider buying wood chews from a reputable pet supplier. Our chinchillas seem to enjoy the Build-n-Bites product although we also provide various other types of wood for them to chew on.
