The recommended amounts of dietary components for companionate chinchillas are as follows: 10-20% protein, 2-5% fat, and 15-35% bulk fiber. It is also highly suggested to supply chinchillas with timothy hay and a woodblock. Chinchilla teeth are rootless, and therefore, never stop growing. Chewing on a woodblock helps to maintain teeth and prevent oral diseases (Spotorno et al. 2004b).
