It runs in the family

Well, it seems like no time since I was writing this entry, and now her sister, Trinity, is in the same position... She went into the vets this morning to have her teeth rasped - she's been eating with difficulty, rubbing her mouth and dribbling, all classic signs of a chinchilla with overgrown teeth. They do think that there is a genetic predisposition to this problem, which is quite a common one, but it's still worrying to see it appear quite so quickly in Trin.

Domino's been through this procedure twice now (she went back for a checkup in January), so I'm not too worried about Trinity, but I know there's still a risk. Paws crossed for the little one, please...
