Una the One-Eyed Wonder Chinchilla has quite a story. She was originally bought by a family at a local PetSmart. She began to have serious problems with one of her eyes, and the family returned her to the store. Thankfully, the vet at the PetSmart was experienced with chinchillas and was able to safely remove Una’s ulcerated eye.
