Beaphar XtraVital Chinchilla Bathing Sand ensures that the chinchillas fur stays in perfect condition. Taking a dust bath is natural behaviour for your Chinchilla, it is how they keep their lush coats clean and healthy in the wild. A regular dust bath is an absolute necessity for chinchillas. Not only does this keep their coats in good condition, but it is also relaxing and fun. Use a heavy, tip-resistant bowl or deep dish and offer the dust bath to your chinchilla at least twice a week, typically in the evening when they are more active. Usually 10 to 15 minutes is plenty of time for a chinchilla bath. You can offer the bath more frequently if your chinchilla's fur starts to look rough or feels damp or oily. In humid weather, baths should be offered more frequently. The dust bath should only be made available to the chinchilla intermittently, rather than left in the cage indefinitely. Too much bathing can dry the skin, and if the dust is left in the cage chinchillas will often use it as a litter box. If your chinchilla has dry, flaky skin or seems itchy, decrease the bathing time and frequency a bit. You can re-use the dust for several baths. Make sure to scoop out any waste when the chinchilla is done each bath. If the dust starts to look clumpy or dirty, discard and use fresh dust. Can also be used by hamsters and gerbils.
