Chinchillas rarely blink, so for your pet to keep one or both of its eyes closed is unusual unless it’s sleeping. But as there’s more than one cause of this potential problem, you may not know why it’s doing so.
The first thing you put in a pet rodent’s cage is a running wheel. But chinchillas are exotic, so do they need exercise wheels at all?
The first thing owners do when they get a new pet is give it shots (vaccines). But you don’t with chinchillas. You may think this leaves your pet vulnerable to something like rabies. How true is that?
