Chinchilla Wounds

A wound can be defined as - a cut or break in the continuity of any tissue caused by injury or operation.
There are many different types of wounds. The most common found in chinchilla keeping will be:

Surgical Wounds
Traumatic - amputations (e.g. toes), bites, abrasions, bruising
Burns
Abcess
Chronic Ulcers (such as bumblefoot)

It is important to assess the wound first and foremost to try to establish the underlying cause (so further occurrences may be prevented where possible) and to formulate a treatment plan.
