Pet parents who care for small animals find themselves in the unique position of providing the bedding that suits their pet best. With so many options available, it can be difficult to determine the difference between guinea pig, hamster, and other types of pet bedding. We always recommend pet parents read labels closely to determine whether the product they’re looking at is made for their animal specifically. We also suggest to consider materials used and whether scented or unscented suits your household needs.
Guinea pig bedding is essential to your pet’s wellbeing as it allows them to burrow, as well as maintain a sanitary living space by absorbing waste, water, and food spills. Guinea pig bedding also keeps your pet comfortable in their cage. Hamster bedding serves a similar purpose as these pets love to burrow and nest. Pet parents should be sure that they are using a generous layer of hamster or other pet bedding to allow for the most comfortable environment possible.
It’s widely known that rabbit urine contains high amounts of ammonia, which results in a rather strong odor. Rabbit bedding made from lavender or other soft floral material is an effective type of rabbit bedding, as it is great for controlling odors and has a naturally fresh scent. Pet bedding made with paper and baking soda also makes for a great rabbit bedding, as baking soda allows for superior odor control. Paper is also biodegradable and creates less dust. Litter made from recycled newspaper has the added benefit of being flushable for easy clean up. Many recycled paper litters are dust free and hypoallergenic. Find a pet bedding choice that suits your small animal at Petco and keep them comfortable, clean, and happy.
