How much hay/food?
I have a chinchilla who looks to be a little overweight. I am not looking to put her on a "diet" for her to lose weight because part of the reason shes getting "chubby" (if she is at all) is my fault (spoiled her with too many treats, and gave her the treat filled food, unlimited, before knowing the harm).
I just want to know about how much food (now mazuri brand) is "normal" to give my chin daily (1/2 cup? 2/3 cup?).
And also, should hay be limited? It seems like she eats ALL of her hay every night no matter how big of a pile I give her.
I make sure she gets lots of exercise by letting her out a lot, and she always has a wheel in her cage. I think giving her a set amount of food (and cutting down the treats!) will help her out a lot even if she isn't overweight. Thanks for the help!
