What's everyone's thoughts on this
If you've an animal that explores everything with their mouths (such as a chinchilla) then it isn't safe as it expands when wet it can cause impaction internally if consumed.
I've got a hamster
I've used it once, currently checking (as recommended by vet) if Marble is allergic to it because he has been scratching...But since vet visit he hasn't scratched as much...I will add some to his bedding when his cool down period of 1-2 weeks is over.
A note about that is that this bedding you've got is super soft...Heck I wish my bed was made of that.
But it is made of paper therefore breakdown
I've used it with all my hams no problems and it's great
So if it's paper based it's generally ok?
Basically yes but it's got to be 100% unscented paper
As far as I'm aware it's the waste product of paper manufacturing so not paper itself.
I only know of it from experience with chinchillas and it has cause deaths in them.
I believe chins are a bit difficult with bedding. Seen many bedding that say 'only safe on wire bases' regarding to chinchillas. As I've never had one, I don't know. I know it's safe for hams. Easier to say paper as it's cellulose and it confuses people. Basically when water is added it breaks down. Not as good as torn tissue which I've started doing and actually prefer
Well it's finally arrived yay
What size cage do you have?
I'm not sure on the size I just know it's a large one from [email protected]
