I have a eight year old female chin. Beautiful beige color, fantastic mom and great pet.
She has always had bad reactions to stress. Since change bothers her badly we do not move her cage and other things like that. Her reactions include shaking, and inablilty to move.
Yesterday, she was hesitant to take her weekly bath. This was the first indication something was wrong. After her bath she likes to close her eyes and put her face in the sun. She did not do this and went straight back to her coffee can.
Last night she was sleeping in their pee spot. I tried to give her a raisin-she refused. She was shaking and then began to grind her teeth. She grinded on her teeth for a couple hours. She was also having trouble moving. This morning she is alittle better. Went back to her coffee can and ate a couple sunflower seeds. She is still having episodes of shaking. I also not seen her drink anything since yesterday morning. She may possibly be pregnant.
Does anyone have any ideas?
There is not a vet that deals with chinchillas anywhere close.
