Services

Grooming
 
Need your chinchilla groomed?  Want to curb the relentless shedding, at least for a while?  We can do it for you. 
 
Choose either a "rough groom" -- removes loose/dead hairs, reduces shedding, gets out mats, and overall "pretties" the chinchilla; or a "show groom" -- only necessary if preparing to show your chinchilla, takes more care and precision.  This grooming is done at the NWI rescue (or at a show, if you're showing your pet).  Please call to schedule a time to bring your chinchilla in to be groomed.
 
Rough groom -- $5.00
Show-Prep Groom -- $10.00-15.00

Hanging Chew Toys

We hand-make all of our hanging chew toys here at NWI Chinchillas.  We do everything here -- from cutting the wood into toy pieces, to sanding / drilling / re-sanding the toy pieces, to dyeing the toy pieces, to stringing them on wire, and so on -- to ensure that we know exactly what goes into these toys, and to ensure that they are 100% safe for your chinchillas and other small animal pets.  They are made with love.

Spring Latches
 
We use spring latches on most of our cages to help secure the doors shut.  Most cages can benefit from a little extra security.  We have had chinchillas escape from cages without spring latches, but never from cages with spring latches.  We recommend one for each door of your cage.
 
$1.75 each
 
Metal Dusting Pans
 
These are approx 11" x 7" metal pans used for dusting chins.  Unlike the dust houses, the chins cannot get in them and refuse to come out - which is important for us, at least with the rescues.  Also, since they are metal, there is no plastic to ingest.
 
$2.50 each
