Thank you for the replies on my chinchilla, Squeeker.
I have brought him to a vet and they ruled out Giardia along with all other bacterial diseases. His eyes are still shiny, his coat is in good condition, and he does not have a runny nose or chin.
I will definitely try the pedialyte along with a new vet this week but I was just wondering if you had any other guesses?
Also, he keeps rubbing his face on the carpet, platform... anything really. We've been giving him fresh sand to bath in.
The pet store did not have the correct kind of hay for a few days this week so he didn't really get much hay but now that we have some more he's eating it up so I don't know if that is it.
He's hardly pooping at all, even after running in the hallway for a half hour... .there was only one dropping and it was tiny and lined with a mucus type film.
If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them!
Thank you so much.
Jennifer and Squeeker
