Einstreu & Sand

Good bedding is essential for dwarf hamsters, rats and mice to provide a hygienic and comfortable environment. Moss and wood chips are suitable as natural and soft bedding. Bathing sand for rodents is also of great importance for the health and well-being of the animals. Especially chinchillas, hamsters and degus need regular sand bathing to perform their fur care.

Litter & Sand

are important components for the proper keeping of chinchillas and other rodents. Different materials play a role, all of which have their specific advantages. In this text we will go into more detail about chinchilla sand, beech wood bedding, wood shavings, buddle sand, wood shavings and straw.

Chinchilla sand is a particularly fine sand, specially mined for bathing chinchillas. Chinchillas like to bathe in the sand to groom their fur and rid it of excess grease. When they do this, they roll back and forth in the sand and shake themselves extensively. Chinchilla sand should be free of pollutants and impurities, so as not to endanger the health of the animals.

Beech wood bedding is a popular choice for the bottom of rodent cages. It consists of fine wood chips but is not particularly absorbent. Beech wood bedding does not bind odors and moisture and is more suitable for aviaries or as decoration in hamster enclosures. If it ever gets dirty, it is easy to dispose of.

Wood shavings are similar to beech wood bedding, but are made of coarser wood shavings. They are a good choice for creating a natural and comfortable environment for rodents. Wood shavings can absorb a lot of moisture but should be replaced regularly depending on the species.

Wood chips are often used as bedding for guinea pig enclosures, but can also be used for hamster or mouse enclosures. They are also very absorbent and provide a natural environment for the animals. However, wood chips are coarser than beech wood bedding and can therefore be dusty.

Digging sand is a particularly coarse sand, which is well suited for digging and burrowing rodents. Here they can follow their natural instincts and occupy themselves extensively. However, Buddelsand should not be used as the sole bedding, as it absorbs moisture poorly.

Straw is another option for covering the bottom of rodent cages. It is particularly soft and provides a comfortable surface for the animals to lie and sleep on. However, straw can absorb less moisture than other materials and should therefore be replaced more frequently.

Overall, there are many different materials that can be used as bathing sand and bedding for rodent cages. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it is important to choose the right material for the animals' needs. A combination of different materials can also be useful to meet the needs of the animals.
