I lost one of my beloved chinchillas yesterday. Ziggy had been having eating issues for some time but nothing could be diagnosed. His condition deteriorated over the weekend and he went to the vets yesterday. His back teeth were growing at a peculiar angle, the vet believed the cause to be some unknown trauma. There was nothing positive that could be done for him except euthanasia. I've requested that his ashes be returned to me and then at least he's home.
