SUITABLE FOR ALL GNAWING CRITTERS, Chewlas™ pumice stones provide your Rodentia-order (gnawing) pet with the ideal abrading surface to keep claws and teeth naturally worn down to a healthy length. The quality of these dense pumice stones is superior to lightweight "floating" pumice stones and pressed-and-molded pumice chew products on the market. Chewlas also make great in-cage play toys to push around, and providing a chew stone can save the wear and tear from gnawing on other parts of the habitat.

These premium chew stones come from the same mine/source as our ChillDust™ Premium Bathing Dust.

INSTRUCTIONS: Simply place a Chewla™ chew stone in your pet's cage. If your critter has never had a chew stone before, it may take a little time for 'em to figure it out.

ABOUT CHEWLAS: Chewlas™ are hard and abrasive enough to naturally wear down the ever-growing teeth and nails of your cute little rodentia-order critter, yet soft enough not to cause damage.

» Chewlas are naturally clean and pure. This same pumice is crushed and refined for use in dental polish pastes, exfoliating beauty products, and beverage and water filtration.

» Chewlas are safe to ingest. This same pumice is used in livestock feed as an anti-caking agent.

» Chewlas contribute important trace dietary nutrients like magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium; also functions as a dietary fiber.

» Chewlas are ideal to meet the instinctual behavior of rats, mice, gerbils, chinchillas, degus, guinea pigs, and hamsters to gnaw and nibble, as their chisel-like teeth never stop growing. Rabbits, while not classified as rodents, (having four incisor teeth rather than two) also love to gnaw and chew.

» Chewlas also make great in-cage play toys to push around, and providing a chew stone can save the wear and tear from gnawing on other parts of the habitat.
