I am thinking of changing our girls bedding. They are 4 years old and I have always used Newspaper and woodshavings. Unfortunately they have both picked up a UTI and I don't tink woodshavings is the best for keeping them dry and out of conatct with the wee.

Now the problem is they are both 'Nibblers' if they are left unatended on the carpet they will chew it, is there any type of bedding Vetbed, fleece etc that is nibble safe or am I stuck to wood shavings. I'd love to try something else but they can be soooo pesky with chewing

Also what is the best bedding to wic away the urine?

Thanks

If you've had them for four years and never had a problem until now then I can't see that the woodshavings are a problem for your particular pigs? I'm no expert though...but I wouldn't worry yourself about itxx
