チンチラは年中、毛皮を着ているようなものですから、特に夏の高温多湿な環境にはとても弱い動物です。チンチラがぐったりしている原因で1番多いのは温度管理の問題です。

今回は、チンチラがぐったりしているときに確認したいことや、夏・冬の温度対策で注意しなければいけないことや対策についてを紹介します。

 

チンチラがぐったりしている、考えられる原因は?

チンチラが急にぐったりして横たわっている場合に考えられる病気は、熱中症が考えられます。部屋の温度と湿度を確認してみましょう。

チンチラは暑さと湿度に弱いので、夏の場合は高温多湿になっていることが原因であることが多いです。熱中症はチンチラへの身体の負担が大きく、後遺症が残ってしまったり、命に関わることもあるので注意が必要です。

冬の室温が低すぎることも肺炎等の重篤な病気を引き起こす原因になります。チンチラが過ごしやすい温度は15~22度で、湿度は40%未満が適しています。

 

どのような対策をすればよい?

チンチラにとって過ごしやすい温度と湿度を保つためには、エアコン等で調節しましょう。夏は22度以下、冬は15度以上になるようにしてあげると良いですよ。

夏場は基本的にエアコンをかけっぱなしにしてあげましょう。ケージを比較的涼しい場所に置いてあげることも、暑さ対策になりますよ。

チンチラは冬の寒さには比較的強いですが、室温が5度以下になるようなら迷わずエアコンやヒーター等で温度調節してあげましょう。

 

チンチラの温度管理・夏

チンチラにとっての適温は、人間の過ごしやすい温度とは違います。人間が過ごしやすい温度だと、チンチラにとっては高すぎるといったことがよくあります。飼い主さんの中にはこのチンチラにとっての適温を維持するために、同じ部屋で過ごすことを諦める人が多く居るほどです。決して人間の体感温度で決めないようにしましょう。

室温を15~22度になるようにエアコンで調整します。適温内でもチンチラが伸びて寝ている場合は、冷感プレートなどの涼感グッズを使用しましょう。水を入れて凍らせたペットボトルを数本ケージの周りに置くのも良いでしょう。

エアコンの設定温度を適温内にしていても環境によっては、ケージ付近の実際の温度と異なることがあります。温度を管理するときは、ケージ付近にデジタル温湿度計を設置して常に温度・湿度を確認できる状態にしておきましょう。

 

チンチラの温度管理・冬

チンチラは割と寒さに強いといわれていますが、室温が15度以下で体調を崩しやすくなり、室温が5度を下回ると肺炎を発症してしまうといわれています。隙間風が当たる場所や寒い場所にはケージを置かないようにしましょう。

冬の寒さ対策は室温が20度に届かなくなった頃から始めるのが良いでしょう。ヒーターやパネルヒーターを使用して、暖かい巣箱を設置してあげるのが理想的です。

チンチラのぐったりが続くようなら?

室温が適温であるのに関わらず、チンチラがぐったりしていようであれば、早急に動物病院を受診する必要があります。

動物病院は犬や猫しか診てもらえないところも多いので、エキゾチックアニマルであるチンチラを診てくれる動物病院でなければなりません。緊急時のためにかかりつけの病院をつくっておくと安心ですね。

ただしエキゾチックアニマルを診れる病院でもチンチラは診れないといったところもありますので、必ず事前にチンチラの受入れは可能であるのかを確認されることをお勧めします。

 

チンチラがぐったりしていたら・まとめ

大切なチンチラがぐったりしている姿は、見ている飼い主さんも辛いですよね。夏冬共にしっかり温度管理をして、いつも快適に元気に過ごしてもらいたいです。

普段からチンチラをよく観察している飼い主さんだからこそ、チンチラの異変に気づいてあげられるものだと思います。毎日のスキンシップや健康チェックは欠かさず行いましょう。
