A chinchila breeder knows that the appearance of the coat is the most important asset in finding a good market to sell therefore any effort or investment in this direction is extremely important
But the appearance of the coat is influenced by many factors, sometimes not taken into account and one of them is the sand left in the cage for the daily bath that the pets uses to clean their fur. The quality of this sand is essential.
Chinchila comes from the Andes in South America where, in the natural habitat they are rolling in the dust of volcanic ash. This powder has special properties and by penetrating the fur till skin will absorb impurities giving the shining look of the coat that makes this animal so famous. Volcanic dust is contains zeolites and the properties of this special mineral explain the effects it has on Chinchila coat.
ZeCo Chinchila is a special product developed for these animals that has properties similar to those of the dust Chinchila uses daily in their natural habitat. ZeCo Chinchila contains clinoptilolite zeolite absorbing toxic substances and microorganisms
Not all sand is good for this animal so chinchila farm owners should pay importance to have some animals with a shiny coat and therefore the financial results expected.
