Chinchillas are adorable rodents with some of the softest fur of any animal. However, their dense coat also requires special care to prevent matting, oil buildup, and infections. Unlike most pets, chinchillas cannot be bathed with water as it can damage their fur and cause health problems. Instead, they need to take regular dust baths using a special sand that removes excess moisture and oil from their fur.

Kaytee Chinchilla Bath Sand is a superior alternative to the traditional chinchilla dust because it is made from 100% natural volcanic pumice found in the Andes mountains, which is where your chinchilla’s wild relatives are from. This sand is finely ground and sifted to ensure it is virtually dust-free, which means less mess and less respiratory irritation for you and your pet. It also has a soft texture that feels gentle on your chinchilla’s skin.

This dust can be used with the Kaytee Chinchilla Bath House, which is a durable plastic enclosure that provides a safe and comfortable space for your chinchilla to roll around in the sand. The bath house has a concave bottom that prevents tipping over and a secure lid that prevents spills. It also has ventilation holes to allow air flow and prevent overheating.

To use, simply fill the bath house with about one inch of sand and place it in your chinchilla’s cage two or three times a week for 5 to 10 minutes each time. Your chinchilla will enjoy grooming itself by rubbing its face and body in the sand, which will help keep its fur soft, shiny, and healthy. After each use, discard the used sand and replace it with fresh sand as needed.

Kaytee Chinchilla Bath Sand comes in a convenient resealable pouch that contains 5 packets of sand (140 grams each), enough for up to 20 baths. It is recommended to store the pouch in a cool and dry place away from direct sunlight.

Chinchilla bathing dust is an essential product for any chinchilla owner who wants to provide their pet with the best possible care. By using this natural volcanic pumice sand along with the Kaytee Chinchilla Bath House, you can ensure your chinchilla stays clean, healthy, and happy.
