Establishing a good working relationship with a veterinarian can be a challenge for any pet owner, but is a special challenge for the exotic pet owner.

How To Get Your Chinchilla To Trust You
If your chinchilla is not tamed, it may take them a while to get used to you. Just like with human relationships, you will have to earn their trust before they allow you to form a close bond with them. You will have to provide your pet with a lot of love and care. Don't get discouraged if after a few months, they still don't reciprocate. It just means it may take a little longer than you thought.

How To Keep Your Chinchilla's Cage Clean And Safe

Usually, your pet won't venture into those areas, but if they do, they may contact a fungus.
