Complete extruded feed for chinchillas and degu.
A multi-complex containing a large amount of different ingredients offering a wide spectrum of substances in their natural form which in combination with added components (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, lecithin, inulin) form the basis for a healthy and smoothly running body.
The prebiotic content, method of processing, calculated combination of ingredients, various types of fibre and vitamins act to prevent problems with the correct functioning of the gut, whose health is the basis of the body’s defence system.
This unique recipe contains at least 5% herbs of five different types (camomile, St John’s wort, plantain, mint, horsetail). This is not just for their taste or aroma, but mainly for their dietetic properties and significant amount of biologically active substances which within the feed act to significantly boost the overall health and wellbeing of the animal.
Nutrients are more accessible to digestive enzymes, increasing their digestibility, improving feed conversion and reducing stress on the body. Compared to standard compound food, daily dosage is thus lower.
The low level of fats in the ingredients is added to with rapeseed oil with the optimal ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids.

Nutrin Complete Chinchilla feed is designed for chinchillas. If this is the first time you are using this feed, the feed should be switched gradually.
In practice, this involves slowly increasing the amount of Nutrin feed while reducing the original feed by the same amount. The original feed should be switched gradually mainly to prevent digestive problems, and also because chinchillas do not always accept new feed immediately. This switch period may vary from a few days to a number of weeks.
To begin with, the feed intake should be in accordance with Nutrin Complete’s recommended daily feed intake, i.e. 4 – 6 g per 100 g of body weight. This daily intake should be divided up and given morning and evening. Always ensure unlimited access to fresh water. If your chinchilla is regularly not eating everything, you should reduce the daily amount. You can vary the diet with leaves, fresh fruit, vegetables and something to chew. Any changes to the daily intake provided should be made taking account of body weight, condition and the health of the specific animal.
