Silver Sparkle Premium Chinchilla Dust Bath is a fine powder that mimics the volcanic ash of the Chinchilla's native environment.
Silver Sparkle Premium Chinchilla Dust Bath provide your Chinchilla with a daily dust bath to maintain a healthy coat and to remove old or dead fur, which may otherwise irritate your pet.
You should never wet or bathe your Chinchilla in water. Use this dust in a Chinchilla bath or suitable container and replace the dust after use, or if it becomes soiled. The bath should be filled to a depth of 25mm/1 inch.
Chinchilla Bathing Tips:
A chinchilla dust bath is best done at least twice a week in the evenings. If your petâ€™s fur is constantly oily or dirty, bathing can be done more often.10 to 15 minutes is enough time for chinchilla dust bath. Check if your petâ€™s skin begins to get dry, flaky and or if it constantly scratches its skin. If this happens, shorten the duration and number of times you bathe them.
Find a bowl to put your chinchilla dust in. The bowl or container should be heavy enough so as not to spill over. Container size should be bigger than the size of your pet. A good option is a container that has covering that will help keep dust from flying around during bathing.
Chinchilla should be bathed in dust, not in fine sand. Chinchilla-specific dust manages to reach beyond their fur, down to the very skin. and soaks all the grime and unnecessary moisture from their coats. Chinchilla-specific dust does best these.
This dust is specific only for chinchillas, replicating the ash they prefer in their natural environment.
Chinchillas should be given dust to roll in at least twice a week.
Dust can be left in the cage for 15 minutes several times a week. Do not leave the dust in the cage all the time.
