Small Pet Bedding for Ferrets, Rabbits & others | PetSmart
From habitats, to food and bedding, our small pet products make it easy to create a safe, comfortable space for your ferret, guinea pig, rabbit, gerbil, mouse or rat.
Just ensure that you construct it in such a way that it is easily accessible for cleaning and feeding. A catch tray is an excellent and easy option here as you can just pull it out at the bottom of your rabbit hutch. For bedding to make your rabbit comfortable, the use of straw or aspen bedding is recommended. Keep in mind when you use straw to change it regularly as it becomes moldy, which can make your pet rabbit sick.
Bedding such as newspaper and hay can be fine fi your rabbit won’t be running much around the interior of your home or within an outdoor hutch. However, paper that is shredded or recycled is a good type of bedding as it is non-sticky and won’t get tracked around the house when you take them out of the cage. It’s a good idea to try a few different types of bedding material to find the right one for your pets.
There are many options for bedding to use for your pet rabbit
Rabbit Bedding. Explore the many pet bedding options
Finding adequate bedding that will keep your bunny safe, happy, and clean at all times is very important. Rabbits tend to choose the best type of area for sleeping and staying safe, so all you need to do is provide them with good bedding. Rabbits enjoy aspen shavings as well as standard bedding available through pet stores. You can also find paper based beddings through Carefresh, Kaytee, and other brands. Many types of bedding offer odor absorbance and increased softness, making them good for rabbits who wish to find a secure nesting area.Pine may indeed be fine, but competition is healthy too, as long as products compete fairly on their own merits.
Here are some additional rabbit bedding choices. Some choices are every bit as effective as pine shavings, with one notable exception ... price.
The smallest packages of these alternative beddings cost nearly as much as the entire $7 bale of pine shavings I bought at the feed store. The larger packages cost double, triple, even quadruple the $7-and-change I paid.
Do your own research and decide if the product is worth the price. As to function, all except match the performance of pine. Nevertheless, for the last 6 years, the packaging of every small animal bedding product has been trumpeting the dire health risks of pine shavings.
The main risk, if there is one, is with cedar. As noted on our page, most rabbit breeders don’t use cedar at all. There is no need at all to lump heat-treated or kiln-dried pine shavings in with cedar’s supposed bad rap and attribute the same health risks to pine. So when you are looking for a rabbit bedding for your buddy, check out all the available products and see which one will fit your needs and your rabbits needs the best. These products are easy available at your local pet store or on the web.
