Water

So, I have noticed lately that my Hailey does not seem to drink very much water. We have a good sized water bottle but within a 2 day time frame she drinks maybe an inch of it. Should chins drink a lot or a little? Should I buy her a salt block so she drinks more?? Anyone know?

I have read that salt isn't good for chins, in some cases it has caused seizures. My chins don't drink very much either, they will drink what they need.

There is no one TRUE way

too much salt and too much sugar is VERY bad for chins..... mine doesnt seem to drink that much either but it's just what they do. long as he's pooping solid stools (not runny or white) then i would say

Thanks. I was just worried. I know they are part rodent and I know hampsters drink tons of water. Thanks, no salt blocks and I can stop worrying!
