Can Chinchillas eat Chips?

Chips or potato chips are thin slices of potato that have been deep fried or baked until they crunchy. They are also known as crisps and are commonly served as a side dish, snack or appetizer. They are cooked and salted and quite often added with flavourings and ingredients such as spices, herbs, cheeses, and artificial additives.

So can chinchillas eat chips at all?

Unfortunately, they cant eat chips. They are just too full of additives and fat that chinchillas just cannot handle them.

If they happen to nibble them they should be fine, but anything more than that will see them get sick.
