Unsafe Foods for Chinchillas


Unhealthy foods won’t necessarily cause lasting harm to chinchillas but should still be limited as treats, only fed in small amounts once or twice per week.

  • Nuts and seeds (and other high-fat foods)
  • Fresh fruits
  • Fresh vegetables

Dairy & Animal products should be avoided. For more information on foods for chinchillas, see our article on Chinchilla Diet.
