What to know when choosing bedding
Your rabbit will need between 1 to 2” of bedding and litter placed in their
habitat. Cedar based products are not recommended for safety precautions. There are however, many other types of materials you can consider. Here are a few of the most common types of habitat bedding that you’ll find at Petco:
- High-quality paper bedding
- Pellets (wood or paper)
- Hardwood shavings
Regardless of which materials you use to line your pet’s habitat, it should be safe for food contact. This means paper bedding should be free of inks, dyes, or other chemicals, and wood shavings should be dust-free. If you want an earth friendly option paper bedding is biodegradable and create less dust. You’ll find many recycled paper litter products are dust free and hypoallergenic. For easy cleanup, rabbit litter made from recycled newspaper can be flushed right down the toilet.
Selecting bedding and litter that controls odors
Your small rabbit’s urine contains high amounts of ammonia, which results in a rather strong odor. Rabbit bedding that contains lavender or other soft floral material is great for controlling odors and has a naturally fresh scent. Flooring made with paper and baking soda is another option since baking soda helps to neutralize acidic substances that cause bad odors.
