Pregnancy Loss (Miscarriage) in Chinchillas

Treatment

 

Your veterinarian will gently flush the chinchilla's uterus with antiseptic solution and prescribe antibiotics, both to prevent any infections from developing.

 

Living and Management

 

Rest, a clean, quiet environment, and a well-balanced diet should all be provided to the recovering female chinchilla.

 

Prevention

 

Providing a well-balanced, nutritious diet, maintaining a clean environment and treating any bacterial or viral infection quickly can also prevent incidences of pregnancy loss in female chinchillas.
