Calcium-Phosphorus Imbalance in Chinchillas
Your veterinarian might treat the chinchilla by administering calcium gluconate. Oral calcium and phosphorus supplements may also be recommended by your veterinarian to help your chinchilla overcome this condition.
Living and Management
Chinchillas that are being treated to overcome calcium phosphorus imbalance should be fed a nutritionally well-balanced diet. Consult your veterinarian and formulate a diet suited to meet the mineral needs of your pet chinchilla. Routinely administer any oral supplements as suggested by your veterinarian to help your pet recover from this nutritional disorder.
You may prevent a calcium-phosphorus imbalance in your pet chinchilla by feeding it a well-balanced, nutritionally complete diet formulated for chinchillas with the appropriate amount of calcium, phosphorus and vitamin D3.
