Can I use Pro-C Probiotic for my chinchillas?
Yes, Pro-C Probiotic can be used for chinchillas. It contains prebiotic soluble fibre, probiotics, vitamin C and glucose. The vitamin C is there to compensate for the vitamin C which is always lost by animals during times of sickness or stress.
Chinchillas can have problems if they receive high levels of glucose in food or water for long periods, because like degu they have a diabetes-prone physiology. If you find that your animal has long term gut issues and needs probiotics for months at a time then please contact us to review it or contact your vet for advice.
