Grooming - Your pet likely spends a significant amount of time grooming himself or cage mates. If they do become soiled with fecal matter or food, you can brush them lightly with the Pro Slicker bristle brush or toothbrush. Rabbits tend to shed every three months, and usually twice a year the shedding will be heavy. Regular grooming is essential to free the coat of dead hair and reduce the amount of hair the rabbit may ingest while grooming.
Bathing - Unless your pet has been accidentally splashed with a sticky substance, it is not necessary to bathe him. Because of their exceptionally thick coats and fine fur, however, it is necessary to provide chinchillas a dust bath on a daily basis, or at least several times a week. Sanitized chinchilla dust, or a 9:1 mixture of silver sand or volcanic ash and Fuller's Earth, can be used. Remove the dust bath after use to prevent fecal contamination. Gerbils, also, can benefit from a dust bath.
Most owners appreciate the natural, clean smell of their pet. It should never be masked with perfumes or foreign scents. With your help, your pet's home, and yours, will stay fresh and pleasant.
