Questions about Small Animals Home & Hygiene

  • Is it true that woodshavings are unsafe for rats?
  • Rats have a sensitive respiratory tract, so woodshavings should be used, not sawdust. Our woodshavings are dust-extracted to minimize any problems of this kind. Additionally, rats are sensitive to the oils found in cedar wood shavings. These are not present in our products. The woodshavings are predominantly made from spruce with some pine. Spruce is a non-irritating wood, which makes it ideal to use in a rat's habitation, and the presence of a small amount of pine is beneficial, since the trace quantities of pine oils present help to keep bacterial residues (and therefore odor) under control. The consequent reduction of bacterial contamination will reduce reinfection of animals on such bedding.
