Was still good quality as of 3/2022!
Last 2 bags I bought in March last year were still good quality (didn't have lots of dust like others reported) and did NOT cause respiratory issues in my gerbils. Variable quality maybe? But what's with the recent price jump!?

It's sand but should say dust!
I bought this for my hamster but the it's like dust and made my hammy sneeze so had to remove it. I'm sure it's great for chinchillas but do not buy for hamsters! :)

Chinchilla DUST not Sand
Whilst described as sand, this product should be re-branded as dust. NOT suitable for small pets, like Gerbils. It will cause respiratory issues, and easily get into their eyes. SAND needs to be a lot larger grain size, which is not clearly identified wirh this product. In fairness, in rhe description its does state "finely ground", but not reference to grain size on the package, ayating 0-0.3mm so, definitely DUST. Avoid if you are are after a safe SAND for your beloved pets.

Massive bag
Very large bag of sand. I’m using it for my hamsters sand bath and it’s perfect. Dust free and great value for money. Should last a very long time.

Within less than 24 hours the whole tray of this sand clumped together, I use it for my hamster as she likes to use it as a toilet, the sand i used to get would only have tiny clumps. I am really not impressed as i bought so much of it.

My quails love this bargain sand
My quails just live bathing in chinchilla sand, but locally it is very expensive and you can only get it in small cartons. My quails get through a lot of sand, scattering it everywhere, but as I have bought 3 bags it will last a while. My quails love this brand and I will be buying more.

not impressed
I have a chinnie rescue and thought this looked a good price and would try. Its really fine, almost just dust, I give my chinnies a bath every day, I don't think this gets the grease out of their coats as well as others and notice they don't look as well groomed.

My chinnies have a bath every day or every other day and they never look greasy, this sand is really fine and very white, I find it just cleans better and doesn't set off my allergies

Good quality, but not for gerbils
The quality, quantity and value are good, but as it's so fine it gets everywhere. Also it's not great for gerbils, because they pee in it and as it doesn't clump as well, you end up throwing away much more than courser sand.

Pippin & Mr. Chinnie give this sand a Gold Star
12 year old Pippin has a habit of getting sand in her eyes (you'd think a chinchilla of her age would have got the knack of sand bathing by now and remember to close her eyes!) and we have found that she has far less of a problem with this particular Chinchilla Sand than any of the others on the market. So many thanks for a First Class product - highly recommended!
