Stomach Ulcers in Chinchillas

Treatment

 

Your veterinarian will typically prescribe stomach coating agents and antacids to treat the gerbil's stomach ulcer(s).

 

Living and Management

 

Stomach ulcers usually take a long time to heal. During this time, your pet chinchilla needs constant monitoring and care, a well-balanced, easily digestible diet and plenty of rest.

 

Prevention

 

A well-balanced, easily digestible diet can also prevent stomach ulcers from developing in many cases.
