Can Chinchillas Eat Bunny Food?

Bunny food is otherwise known as rabbit pellets or muesli. It is specially made food that is designed for the diet of rabbits to cater for their nutritional needs.

So can chinchillas eat bunny food?

They can’t eat any kind of specialist food such as rabbit pellets or muesli. This is food that, as mentioned, is specially made for the diet of bunnies and not chinchillas. Chins have their own nutritional needs.

But they can eat hay and some veggies and fruits like rabbits can, just not as many as them.
