Pneumonia in Chinchillas
Your veterinarian will generally prescribe antibiotics to control the infection, and provide supportive therapy such as intravenous (IV) fluids and mineral and vitamin supplements to stabilize the chinchilla and increase its immunity.
Living and Management
Place your pet chinchilla in a warm, dry, and stress-free living environment, and follow the supportive care and dietary regimen, as prescribed by your veterinarian.
Pneumonia in pet chinchillas can be avoided, to a great extent, by providing a hygienic and stress-free living environment. Regularly clean and disinfect cages, and change bedding material routinely. Also, separating the infected animals from the healthy ones can prevent the spread of infection.
