Tiny Friends Farm Bathing Sand is essential for chinchillas and is also a very nice treat for hamsters, gerbils and degus.
At the Tiny Friends Farm in Hadleigh, Suffolk we believe that the very best bathing sand should be soft and kind, even for pets with sensitive skin.
Our bathing sand is absorbent and promotes a clean, healthy and shiny coat.
It is fantastic fun for tiny friends with big personalities!
Instructions for use:
Allow 2.5cm/1″ of Tiny Friends Farm Bathing Sand in a high sided tray. Chinchillas will enjoy a sand bath every day, whilst hamsters, gerbils and degus prefer to bathe two or three times a week. Only allow your pet to bathe for up to 10-20 minutes at a time to help prevent dry skin. Remove soiled sand immediately and change the sand at least once a week.
Please note that chinchillas should not be bathed in water as their coats absorb water very easily and it is very difficult to dry them out. Water in the fur of chinchillas can cause hypothermia, which is potentially very dangerous to their health.
