Weird stuff in food bowl
I'm new to the forum. Well, our chinchilla seems to be okay, but her food bowl is not. Her poop is of good texture, she has fresh water daily and she eats Charlie Chinchilla.
About two weeks ago we began to find that she would eat all the food except for the pellets. After that, we began to find what looked like "chewed" pellets that were spit out. I don't know what she's doing, if she's drinking water and throwing up? But I've heard that chins don't throw up.
Is she drinking water and then spitting it in the bowl? I find it hard to believe an animal would hold water in her mouth and "spit" it in a bowl. Basically, the pellets look like they get wet somehow and swell up from the liquid, and the bowl winds up like a pile of mush.
