Eating More Dry Hay Does Stimulate Your Chinchilla to Consume More Water!

Increasing your chinchillas urine volume is important to prevent urinary health problems like sludge build up or urinary track infections.

Encouraging your chinchilla to eat more dry hay will greatly increase the amount of water they drink! In fact it will increase their urine volume more than feeding them wet foods (like salads, greens, and veggies) which decrease the amount of hay they eat and water they drink. Why does this work?
