Dottys droppings

Dotty my white chinchilla has had no problems since i had her at the beginning of the year, all of a sudden her droppings have gone abit sloppy, at first i thought my neice had given her too many treats but its been a couple of weeks and theirs been no improvement. She doesnt seem to have lost any weight and she hasnt been acting any different, any ideas i dont know what to do ???

If she's had diarrhea fir two weeks then she needs to see a vet. They can get dehydrated very easily!

Vets seems the best option really, i have stopped all their treats for now i did it when i noticed the sloppy droppings and she is drinking alot of water. Im really confused to what it could be though i have changed nothing in her cage and she hasnt been acting any different. Thank you for comments

so many things can set off intestinal tracts. Make a vet appointment pull all pellets and feed just loose hay for 24 hours. Also check your water source water can be a culprit. Is the water bottle clean? Is the water fresh? You can also give her some probiotics.
