Quality Chinchilla Supplies and Products

Chinchillas are incredibly cute animals. They are small rodents that can usually fit in the palm of your hand (they usually only weigh about 1-2 pounds), and they have incredibly soft fur (thanks to the fact that almost 60 hairs grow from one single follicle). They are native to the Andes Mountains in South America, and they almost look like a cross between a rat and a squirrel. Chinchillas are rodents, but contrary to what may have been your initial thought, they are incredibly clean, odorless, and gentile animals. Chinchillas make wonderful pets, however they’re more suited for households without young children because they require a lot of maintenance and attention. Chinchillas have a lifespan of 10-20 years, so be sure you’re in for the long haul! If you’re considering adding a Chinchilla to your family, or if you are already a Chinchilla owner, be sure to check out the Chinchilla supplies available at Zen Pet Supplies today.

One thing you will definitely need for your Chinchilla is dust bath sand. Chinchillas in the wild in South America will roll around in volcanic ash in order to clean themselves. The ash will soak up any oil or grime in the Chinchilla’s fur. But, since you don’t have any volcanic ash around your house, you can purchase some bath sand from Zen Pet Supplies today. When your Chinchilla rolls around in his dust bath, it can create a pretty messy aftermath, but Zen Pet Supplies has a special dust bath that is dust free to minimize the mess. When you combine this special dust bath with a dust bath tub from Zen Pet Supplies, your Chinchilla can clean himself without spraying dust all over your house at the same time. It is believed that Chinchillas take these dust baths not just to keep themselves clean, but for fun, too! So, set up your beloved Chinchilla with a dust bath about twice a week, and he’ll stay clean and happy. You should also know that if your Chinchilla ever gets wet, you need to dry him off immediately and as thoroughly as possible. If a Chinchilla’s coat gets wet, the water can drip down into his thick, lustrous fur and cause bacteria to grow, which can result in a very uncomfortable skin infection.

Chinchillas are herbivores, so they do not eat any meat, and their nutrition is paramount to their health. Most illnesses Chinchillas can face are caused by improper nutrition, so be sure to feed your Chinchilla a proper, balanced diet. The food at Zen Pet Supplies is made with alfalfa grown in North America, is nutrient rich, and is a good source of fiber. The fiber is essential because Chinchillas also have very delicate digestive systems, so fiber helps keep them balanced. Zen Pet Supplies also has food that will promote the dental health of your Chinchilla. Chinchillas require a lot of dental maintenance because their teeth continue to grow throughout their lives. Chinchillas use their food to help file down their teeth and keep them at a manageable length, so it’s imperative you get the proper food for your Chinchilla, which you can find at Zen Pet Supplies. Be sure to check out all the other products Zen Pet Supplies offers and keep your Chinchilla soaking happily and healthily in that dust bath.
