that's good that clean bill of health for 3 of them. Time will tell if the stop the fur chewing now they are in a good home, as people have said this can be because of stress and boredom. But don't worry too much if they do continue to chew, as I said before some healthy chins just fur chew! And yep, what Crysta said - something must be wrong with little mosaic if he's not eating properly, teeth problems being the big concern... hope he/she(what genders are they all?) get their strength up with a bit of hand feeding and starts eating properly

OMGoodness, a plastic chip! Sounds like they are lucky to find someone loving. I took in a little girl last year that chewed her fur down both sides of her back. Her personality was so amazing, I didn't even notice the chewing at first. Well, I found out that for the 5 years the other girl had her, she was in a rabbit hutch 24 hours a day. No break from the bars on her poor feet, no leaper shelves.
A little TLC from Cutter's Critter and she has grown back all her fur and is just amazing. Just giving you hope. Stress or boredom can be a massive factor in fur chewing. You have some good people here giving you advice.
I'm glad the x-rays only showed the chip and the vet was able to get it out. God Bless you Josh!
