Can Chinchillas eat Dandelions?

Dandelions are found all across the world in many different countries and are known as a herb but are actually much loved by many.

So can chinchillas eat dandelions at all?

Fresh dandelion leaves are fine, without the flower.

Just make sure that they don’t have any pesticides or chemicals on them.

Just be careful with how much you feed them as they are a diuretic and they can get diarrhoea if you are not careful.

It is important to feed in moderation and only give them very small amounts of dandelion leaves.

What dandelions are, is a great herb for cleansing the liver and kidneys.

So if you do have a chinchilla that is sick with troubles with their kidney or liver, it is a very good herb for them.

However only do so with the advice and assistance of a vet
