My family thinks im nuts paying for an autopsy on a chinchilla, but I need to know why this is happening and if an autopsy on one can save my other 3, then I'm all for it.

First of all, I am so sorry to hear about this. I hope you're feeling better. I would definitly take the other chins into the veterinarian to get them on preventative antibiotics if at all possible.

Second of all, I would like to say that getting the autopsy on your chinnie is the most responsible thing you can do and I would really like you to commemorate you on that.

Please keep us updated on everything.

The other 3 are all on antibiotics and seem to be doing fine, eating well, drinking, no lethargy. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and still waiting to hear back from the vet on the autopsy results.

i had major issue with one of my girls. after about two weeks of her improving and having problems we went to one place, they did blood work and found out what was wrong. we had to put her down she was so bad off. when i get the money im going to take my other female to get blood work to make sure she is all in all in good health. she seems good, but so did the other one. it might be something to think about. but every case is different. much love...

I'm sorry you had to put her down. What was wrong with her? The vet has taken stool samples but no blood from them. The girls still have loose stools even after being on two different antibiotics. What were your girl's symptoms?

all the vet told me was that she had liver and kidney failure. she's has no idea how she got that way and neither do i. so was doing perfectly fine then all of a sudden she looked miserable. she was breathing heavy, and stop eating on and off. we really just couldnt figure out what happened. but with the blood work they can tell you so much.

The antibiotics probably will not help the loose stool. They need a probiotic in between doses of antibiotics (about 4 hours after) to replenish the good bacteria that are killed in the digestive tract by the antibiotics. Benebac or acidophilus are usually pretty easy to come by.

I hope you figure out what this is soon.
