When it comes to the health and well-being of your pet chinchilla, gerbil, guinea pig or mouse or rabbit, you ensure that your fuzzy little friend is given the best care possible. As with many pets, proper housing is vital to your small animal pet companion's health. This is why there is an assortment of pet bedding and litter available to line their cages and habitats. Not only do your pet hamsters, rats, guinea pigs and rabbits need a type of soft pet litter to make them comfortable while inside of their homes, but they also need it for its absorbency to help keep their homes sanitary. Most types of bedding and litter, such as Carefresh Pet Bedding, are highly absorbent and help to simplify regular cage maintenance. By absorbing pet waste, food spills and other pet messes, pet bedding and litter also work toward controlling odors, which helps to make your pet's home more comfortable and inhabitable. As there are materials, such as pine and cedar, which have oils that are known to be harmful to many small animal pet companions, it is important to select a type of pet litter and bedding that is safe and non-toxic. Whether you opt for a popular type of small animal bedding and litter, such as Carefresh Pet Bedding, or a natural type of corn or paper-based litter, promote the comfort of your favorite furry friend today with the soft and absorbent type of pet litter.
