Junior Guinea Pig
- Jul 12, 2018
I would like to know if Guinea pigs can be safely housed on woodshavings. I previously had my Piggies on woodshavings but was advised to switch to a different bedding, when one of my Guinea Pigs became ill with a chest infection. I do not know if she was ill because of the bedding, or that she already had the illness when we got her, as she had been sneezing(since we got her) and had already been to the vet for a gloopy eye(with in the first month or so of having her). All of these problems cleared up nearly 2 years ago, and I am currently using a compressed paper based bedding, called back to nature. Although this bedding is sutible it is quite expensive for the amount you get in a bag compared to woodshavings. It isn't a major problem if I cannot use woodshavings but I would be very happy to know if I can. Thank you.
