Dust Bath-How often?

How often do you give your chinnies dust baths? Which brand of dust do you use?



I give my chinnies dust baths atleast 3 times a week, I use blue cloud (I would rather use blue sparkle) and white fullers earth mixed half and half.

I give mine baths about every 3 days, or when they look like they need it. I prefer Blue Sparkle as well but am currently mixing the fuller's earth and blue cloud also.

I give mine a bath 5 times a week right now because the humidity is really high with all of this rain! However in the summer, if they get a bath more than once a week, their coats are dried out.

I switched from blue cloud to blue sparkle, and I must say I like the blue sparkle better. I also put a tiny amount of desenex in the dust to make sure I don't get fungus! Ahhh the great wonders of Seattle weather in spokane! lol

Mine get a bath every 3-4 days depending on the need. Usually about 2 times a week at the least. I use blue sparkle and I like it a lot.
