Chinchilla Cooling Stone: How to Use It
Using a chinchilla cooling stone is pretty straightforward. This granite slab has already been cut to the perfect size for your pet chinchilla, so all that’s left for you is to utilize it properly. You can place it in the cage next to chinchilla food or play area with all the chinchilla toys. Regardless of the location, the cooling stone will provide a cool respite for your furry friend.
Granite will naturally maintain a below-room temperature. However, if it gets too hot outside, consider placing this chinchilla cooling stone in the fridge or freezer before moving it to the cage. To ensure your pet’s comfort throughout the hot months, purchase a few chinchilla cooling stones and rotate them, keeping some chilled while others do their job.
Since this chinchilla cooling stone is 100% washable, cleaning it is as simple as using it. Either do some spot cleaning as necessary or soak it to disinfect it entirely, together with the rest of your chinchilla supplies.
What is a chinchilla cooling stone?
A chinchilla cooling stone is a granite rock that cools down these heat-sensitive pets during the hot summer months. When a chinchilla steps onto this granite slab, it will transfer its excess body heat, experiencing near-instant refreshment.
Why do chinchillas need a cooling stone?Chinchillas don’t have sweat glands, which means they can’t sweat. They also have highly dense fur with a hair-per-follicle ratio that’s 50 to 100 times higher than humans. How does this affect the chinchilla lifespan? It makes them highly susceptible to overheating and heat-related deaths. Using a cooling stone for chinchilla will keep it cool and healthy, just like natural rocks would do in the wild.
I was doing some research for a cage for my new chinchilla and found this cage! Yes the price is a bit high, but the cost of the mansion is so worth it. I want to make sure that my pets are always taken care of and can thrive. This cage took a little while to be made and shipped, but it was worth the wait. Our baby is thriving. It’s so easy to clean and easy to rearrange to keep things fresh. If I ever got a new chinchilla I would purchase again.
Quality Cage Crafters is the best! Always ship quickly and quality products! The cooling stone Is super important I have 2 in my three story kennel and my chinchilla is always sitting on them. Gives me piece of mine just in case the power goes out while I’m at work! They do stay cool.
Our chinchilla loves her cooling stone. Keeps her nice and cool on hot days
I’ve gotten this before, and I prefer the heavier thicker cooling stone, my one of my chins used to move this around their cage too often. But this is still a great option.
These are great for hot days. I keep one in the freezer to rotate them out as needed.
Own a few of these as a precaution during times when it get's pretty hot out. Throw them in the freezer for an hour (or keep them there on reserve) and then pop into their cage, keeps them super cool and gives you relief that they aren't going to be overheating anytime soon.
Ordered this before from another vendor, I assume this is the same. High quality, Chin's love laying on it to keep them cool.
I got my order of a mansion and some chin chillers a month ago, but didn't have chins yet, so I never opened the box... Until today. They aren't anywhere to be found. The other products are great, but I didn't get the 2 chillers I paid for and after buying the cage and chillers, the email responses were less frequent.
On hot days it's a must I put ours in the freezer she loves it when its extra cold goes nuts and then lays on it to cool down way better then ice packs in fleece
