I apologize that no one has responded to your question sooner. Different experts come online at various times. I just came online and saw your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a biologist with a special interest in small animal health. I'm sorry to hear of Ande's problem.
I know you want to make him more comfortable, and would like a home treatment to solve the problem, but unfortunately, this is not a situation where that is possible. I feel bad to have to tell you this, and I know it isn't what you want to hear, but Ande is sick. The symptoms you're seeing are not signs of missing your husband, or of being upset about moving to a new room. The noises you hear often indicate a respiratory infection. when ever a chinchilla stops eating and becomes inactive, it means something is wrong. The best thing to do is take Ande to an exotic animal vet as soon as you can. It would be best to do that today because if he gets sicker over the weekend, you may not be able to find an emergency clinic that sees chinchillas.

In the meantime, continue the measures you've been taking. I would also give him some Pedialyte (yes, the kind for human infants) to prevent dehydration. Use a syringe to put it in the side of his mouth, net straight down the throat (that can cause aspiration into the lungs).
Here is a site where you can scroll down to illnesses and read some details about respiratory infections, as well as other chinchilla health problems:http://www.cuddlycrittersexotics.com/chinchillas.htm
If you have further questions or concerns about this, just let me know.If you have more questions, let me know in a REPLY, but I do believe a vet is your best choice of action. I hope Ande will reach a full recovery.
