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!
CHINCHILLA'S BEST FOOD

I HAVE NEW AND A 18 YEAR OLD CHINCHILLA. HE HAS HAD MANY BRANDS OVER THE YRS. AND WHEN I FIRST TRIED THIS....THIS IS ALL HE WILL EAT. YOU CAN SEE THE FRESHNESS IMMEDIATELY OPENING THE PAGE. EXCELLENT FOOD!

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

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 :)
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.
Want to transition fully to Sherwood

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 :)
Playful & Spunky!

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!
