Grain & Soy-Free, and formulated with premium Timothy Hay, whole natural oil seeds (with flax seed), and chelated minerals to promote digestive health and a shiny fur coat!

Sherwood’s unique formula uses alfalfa (instead of the commonly used soybean meal) because it is a more natural, healthier and balanced source of protein that chinchillas are adapted to. It is blended with premium grass hay and fortified with additional nutrients. Veterinarians agree that this diet is superior to the grain/soy based diets on the market today.

By the time chinchillas reach about 15 to 16 weeks of age they are "teenagers" and need to switch to a diet that is lower in energy and fortified with specific nutrients. This helps them mature without getting fat. In fact it will help them stay trim and active and you'll know that they are healthy on the inside because you'll see the difference in the quality of their fur coat on the outside!
Your chinchilla will live a healthier and ‘hoppier’ life.

Ingredients: Alfalfa hay, timothy hay, whole oil seed blend (flax included)*, Monodicalcium phosphate, salt, choline chloride, essential amino acids, chelated minerals, B-vitamins, cobalt carbonate.
*We only use high quality cleaned whole ingredients and grind them fresh just prior to pelleting. Our custom blend of whole oil seeds, essential amino acids, and chelated minerals perfectly complements and balances the nutrients already naturally found in the food ingredients.

Feeding Directions: For chinchillas that don’t eat enough loose hay (at least 50% of the diet by weight) this hay-based, grain/soy-free food provides the additional hay they need. It is a balanced, fortified and complete food low in calories that contains additional Timothy hay to provide correct amounts of long-strand fiber for proper digestive health. As a result chinchillas will regulate their own food intake. It will also help overweight chinchillas shed excess body fat and help underweight chinchillas gain healthy weight and improved muscle tone by supplying a proper balance of the essential nutrients needed for optimal health.

Caution:Store food in a dark and dry location.

  1. The Best!

    Posted by Kayleigh on 16th Nov 2017

    I've tried a lot of different diets for my chinchilla but this is definitely her favorite and the most healthy and good of them all. She loves eating it, and I love how happy and healthy she is due to it!

  3. So GREEN

    Posted by Vanessa Irving on 22nd Sep 2016

    The food seems so much fresher than the stuff you buy in pet stores. I have no problem getting my chins to eat it.

  4. Strong and Sassy!

    Posted by Unknown on 9th Jul 2016

    Both my guinea pig and my chinchilla have become very strong and very active. My guinea pig gallops around the room like a little horse, and my chinchilla is always trying to find ways to outsmart our pet-proofing. They are strong and healthy. I am happy with how they are doing so well :)

  5. Transitioning and Like the Results

    Posted by Dee on 27th Feb 2016

    I have been reading about this kind of food in small pet magazines from overseas and wanted to know how to get some for my chinchillas and guinea pig. So I was thrilled to have the chance.

    My guinea pig is overweight but game to eat anything. He has always been a beautiful pig, but now we want him to be a healthy fellow. He would transition over just fine if my husband wasn't wanting to finish up the old food, too (sigh).

    My chinchillas have been very spunky and happy after switching over, but they love their old food. So, they get their old food as a "treat." I really like how my older chinchillas has become as crazy active as his much younger mate, and she has begun to be much more svelte again despite her voracious appetite. They both have such beautiful coats.

  6. Want to transition fully to Sherwood

    Posted by Teresa on 23rd Feb 2016

    I think your products contain absolute quality ingredients and seem to be made with a lot of care and integrity! I love your company, and wish my 2 chinchillas and Guinea pig would eat the food I've bought them about a month ago. Transition suggestions are welcome :)

  7. Playful & Spunky!

    Posted by Ellen on 5th Nov 2015

    After faithfully eating Sherwood Chinchilla food daily for a year, Chandler, Joey, and Ross have had no problems in digestion or urination. All 3 chins love the pellets and have very healthy bowel movements as well. They are very healthy & not overweight at all. They have beautiful coats and they all have very high energy and are very playful & spunky! Thank you Sherwood!
