    Snowflake Wood Shavings

    Bedding?- What Do You Use?

    A reveiw on the type of bedding you use would be very helpful as I am looking for a bedding (or mix of different beddings ) that fit my criteria: It needs to be almost if not completely dust free as one of my guinea pigs is very sensitive It must be good at preventing odors and not smell it's...
