Hamster Sand Bath
Author: Nadia VellaSource: www.hamster-club.com
The best way to keep your hamster's fur clean is by providing your hamster with a chinchilla sand bath.
Please bear in mind that if you decide to give your hamster sand bath
then you have to use only Chinchilla Sand
and not any beach sand
since the Chinchilla Sand (that you may buy from your local pet
store), will be pure and clean.
A hamster sand bath will help the hamster keep its fur clean and shiny.
HOW TO GIVE A HAMSTER SAND BATH
1. Place the chinchilla sand in a bowl
2. Put the bowl in the hamster's cage
3. See your hamster take a sand bath!
Please note that not all hamsters enjoy sand baths
. Some hamsters will just ignore the chinchilla sand bath, other hamsters will try to eat it!, some hamsters will instead use it as their potty area
while other hamsters will just use the sand bath as they should by rolling in it :)
Many dwarf hamsters
enjoy sand baths while most Syrian hamsters
ignore it :( If your hamster ignores the sand bath, and you see that your hamster's fur is not clean, then the best option is to replace the hamster's bedding more frequently. Do not apply any sprays that you may find in pet stores... these are not all safe and remember, never bath your hamster
