Replace Vita-Sand if foul or musty smell persists, or at least every six months. Warning If your animal has a propensity for consistent substrate ingestion, the manufacturer recommends that you: Check your husbandry by reading a good reptile book on your specific species, as this could be an indicator of other problems.
