Just got a Chinchilla, asking for some advice.
Hello everyone, I've just recently acquired a pet chinchilla... probably a week ago now, and i've found a small patch of matted fur under his jaw. He's a pretty friendly little guy, so hes been letting me pet him. I've been kind of scratching and thinning the patch but its been there for 2 days now. Would you all have any suggestions or ideas of what the cause could be? He has plenty of chew toys, and i've given him dust baths every other day. I've also taken to sweeping the various platforms in his cage on a daily basis. Also, any advice for a new owner would be greatly appreciated.
