About the Product

Chinchilla Pellets
Made as a small, short cut pellet to help reduce animal wastage.  This chinchilla feed has been fine-tuned over 20 years by one of the country’s top breeders for maximum hair quality and breeding performance.     

Kelp Meal
Kelp seaweed meal has been added to Hubbard Life Chinchilla Pellets to help with a balance of mineral and other needed nutrients.

One Product for All Stages of Life
Just one product provides the correct levels of protein, energy, minerals and vitamins for optimum growth and performance regardless of the life stage.

Quality Proteins and Amino Acids
Ingredients are selected for high digestibility and amino acid balance.  Synthetic amino acids are also offered to make sure there are no deficiencies for optimal hair and muscle growth in the animal.

Fiber Sources
Carefully chosen sources of fiber (alfalfa meal, soy hulls, beet pulp) have been added to assure a healthy GI tract for these herbivores.

Vitamins and Minerals
Small mammals have demanding vitamin and mineral requirements that cannot be met with a standard rabbit pellet.  Hubbard Life Chinchilla Feed is highly fortified with vitamins and minerals to provide optimum nutritional levels for correct skeletal and body growth.  Calcium, available phosphorus, selenium, copper, as well as biotin, choline, niacin and other vitamins and minerals, are carefully balanced.

Contains Chelated Minerals
Helps to increase mineral utilization.

Quality Inspected Ingredients
Assures consistent quality, bag after bag.


Feeding Directions

Hubbard Life Chinchilla Pellets are designed to be fed free choice for all stages of a chinchilla’s life.  A hay source may be offered but is not necessary. 

Keep feed out of the sun and in a cool place to help shelf life.  Do not feed product that is older than 6 months. 

Feeding Tips

  • Additional Vitamin C in the water or feed is not necessary when using this product.
  • Need to be able to gnaw in order to keep their incisor teeth from growing too long.  Long stemmed hay and hard pelleted feeds help in this process.  In some cases, clipping of the teeth may be necessary.
  • Provide plenty of fresh clean water at all times.
  • Never feed any feedstuffs that are moldy, musty or suspect in any way.
  • For best results, chinchillas should be allowed enough space to exercise freely and housed in a draft-free environment.
  • A dust bath on regular basis to help keep clean.  Use a aluminum silicate from a volcanic ash when possible as the dust.
