Chinnie chew suggestions
« on: May 03, 2017, 03:30:31 PM »

I feel like I've ran out of options as far as chew toys for my chinnie goes.    ::shrug::

I think Stormy has gotten bored with the easy to find wood block type toys since he hardly touches them.  He won't even test chew pumice stones, and has never been too fond of cuttlebones.  The only chews he seems to be interested anymore are apple twigs, and he seems ambivalent towards lava bites.  I've seen a lot of loofah chews in stores and online whenever I've gone looking for new stuff for him, but I'm yet to try them because the texture of them look as if they would have an uncomfortable/scratchy mouth feel.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to new toys to introduce to him.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

My chinchillas seem to get bored of everything other than. Apple sticks as well, although, they do still chew the pumice blocks. Any type of safe wood is good...
If you want to an idea of stuff look at chinchilla2shop. It's a UK site but it will give you an idea of things.

Also, are you sure your chinchilla is just bored and there isn't anything else going on?

Thanks.  I think I will give him a test run with loofas soon.
