Finely sifted sepiolite sand for daily coat- and skincare

Bathing pet rodents?!
There are at least two things the original habitats of many of our pet rodents have in common: Water is scarce and the nights at least can be very cold. The coats of our pets’ wild cousins have adapted to deal with these harsh conditions: They are dense and fine and perfectly suited to keep out the cold – at least while dry. However, once they get wet, their insulating properties vanish and they dry very slowly. Thus, bathing in water, if enough water for a bath could even be found, would be likely to result in life-threatening hypothermia. For this reason, we would ask that you only ever bathe your pet rodents for medical reasons (e. g. if they are suffering with mites) as per your vet’s instructions.

SANDbathing pet rodents!
For everyday life, hamsters, chinchillas and their friends have come up with another way of keeping their fine coats clean: They use sand or dust baths to groom their skin and coats. For this purpose, they roll in fine sand or powder themselves with it and, once done, shake off the sand along with all those dead skin particles and excess oils that stick to the grains of dust. This even untangles small knots, and the animal leaves his “tub” all dry and ready to go. Moreover, moving them around in the fine sand also files the rodent’s nails, so even a manicure is included in the bath.

WitteMolen® Chinchilla Dust:
WitteMolen® Chinchilla Dust is made from finely ground sepiolite. Sepiolite is a very soft clay mineral perfect for coat care due to its highly absorbent properties. WitteMolen® Chinchilla Dust is thoroughly dedusted before packing and contains sepiolite grains of various different sizes. The different sizes are essential for optimal results: fine particles cling to excess oils; larger grains which are easier to shake off pull the smaller particles with them when the pet shakes the sand out after the bath.
